First Look at Swiper the Fox in 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold'

Paramount Pictures has unveiled a first-look at the CG-animated Swiper the fox from Dora and the Lost City of Gold, Paramount Players and Nickelodeon Movies' upcoming live-action Dora the Explorer movie inspired based on Nickelodeon's beloved animated preschool series of the same name! In the film, Swiper is voiced by Benicio del Toro (Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Avengers: Infinity War).

The appearance of Swiper has been met with mostly positive reviews, Twitter users saying that he looks better than Sonic from the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie, which due to a largely critical response from fans, have made the producers redesign the character for the movie.

In the popular Dora TV series, Swiper appeared in nearly every episode to steal Dora's hard-won artifacts. The pint-sized adventurer then uttered one of the show's signature catchphrases, uttered three times, "Swiper, no swiping." Whenever Swiper is been caught in the act, he utters his iconic catchphrase, "Oh, man!". Swiper is voiced by Marc Weiner (Weinerville, Figure It Out) in the series, who will also star in the movie as the voice of Map!

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is released in movie theatres across the U.S.A. on Friday, August 9, 2019, followed by a worldwide roll-out soon after.

In Dora and the Lost City of Gold, 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, voiced by Danny Trejo), 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 PeΓ±a) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

Scotti (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted, Alice Through the Looking Glass) as well as executive producers Julia Pistor (The Spiderwick Chronicles, A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Eugenio Derbez.
