Fortnite and Dora | Random Thoughts

The following are my opinion and do not reflect the opinion of any organization or person. May contain spoilers!

A recent Fortnite news video by TheLlamaSir, talked about the upcoming events Epic Games will be adding to Fortnite. Unfortunately, I missed the fishing event. But, the interesting part (aside from the new skins) was the message “winter is near” from Epic Games. This, of course, made me think of the “winter is coming” catchphrase and memes from the Game of Thrones series. I was wondering if this was some kind of hint from Epic Games that there would be a GOT crossover. Who wouldn’t want a white walker skin or a direwolf back bling?

But then I realized how unlikely this was. Normally, when Fortnite does a crossover it is with an event that is happening at that time. They didn’t have the John Wick crossover five weeks after the movie came out. A crossover could be possible if the new GOT series is starting soon. Hmmm…

Over the weekend, I watched the Dora and the Lost City of Gold movie thanks to credits from Vudu for watching their free videos (not sponsored, just an FYI that Vudu will do promotions where if you watch a certain selection of movies you can get credits to use on rentals or purchases). I was moderately surprised to learn it wasn’t all that bad. I never watched Dora the Explorer because I was too old for it, but I knew enough from advertisements and listening to people who had kids that watched it.

I liked that they seemed to realize the people who grew up watching Dora were now, well, grown up. The audience now wanted more than, “Can you find the red barn?” They were teens and watched to see action and adventure, but they still wanted some bits of nostalgia. The crew did an excellent job of walking that line between updating the character for the older audience while not trampling it.

Hope you enjoyed this small chat.

Until the next wormhole…thanks for reading.
