Benicio del Toro is taking a big swipe…
The 51-year-old Puerto Rican actor and Oscar winner will voice the villainous fox Swiper in Paramount Pictures’ Dora the Explorer film.
The film has finished shooting in Australia, but del Toro will provide the voice-over to the fox who always tries to undermine the young explorer.
On the animated series, Dora is known to wave Swiper away from his thieving activities by getting the television audience at home to scream “Swiper no swiping.”
The movie follows a high school-bound Dora leading her friends and her sidekick Boots the monkey on a Goonies-type adventure to save her parents and solve the mystery behind a lostIncacivilization.
Isabela Moner from Instant Family stars alongside Michael Pena and Eva Longoria as her parents, as well as Eugenio Derbez, Adriana Barraza, Q’orianka Kilcher and Temuera Morrison.
del Toro’s previous credits include Traffic, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Sicario.
James Bobin directs the feature live-action take of the classic Nickelodeon cartoon series.
The film hits theaters on August 2, 2019.
