Here's a First Look at Swiper From DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD


A tweet is making the rounds about Dora and the Lost City of Gold. The tweet features an image of what the CGI version of Swiper the Fox will look like.

Benicio Del Toro will be voicing the conniving fox and there’s something about the design that makes it hard for me to believe that his voice is best for the role. Don’t get me wrong, I think Del Toro is a fine actor, I just have a hard time imagining his lower voice coming from the character. Maybe it’s because I associate the character too much with a nasally higher-pitched voice though.

Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a rag tag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold will be in theaters on August 9. What do you think of the design and casting choice for Swiper?
