New Dora And The Lost City Of Gold Photo Reveals First Look At Swiper
A new image for Paramount Pictures‘ upcoming live-action Dora and the Lost City of Gold has surfaced online through Twitter (via Comic Book), offering us our first look at the CGI version of thieving fox Swiper, who will be voiced by Oscar winner Benicio del Torro. Check out the full photo below!
Dora and the Lost City of Gold stars Isabela Moner (Transformers: The Last Knight, Sicario: Day of the Soldado, Instant Family) in the film’s title role. Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents nothing could prepare Dora for the most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego, and a ragtag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost Inca civilization.
Moner is joined in the film by one of Mexico’s biggest stars, Eugenio Derbez (Overboard, Instructions Not Included, How to Be A Latin Lover), who plays Alejandro, a mysterious jungle inhabitant who tries to protect the teenagers from the marauders. The film also features Jeffrey Wahlberg in the role of cousin Diego; Nicholas Coombe (Spy Kids: Mission Control, Midnight Sun) as Randy, a fellow high schooler who develops an immediate crush on Dora; Madeleine Madden (Picnic at Hanging Rock, Tidelands) as the school’s snooty class president, Sammy; and Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza (Babel, Amores Perros, Thor, The 33) as Dora’s grandma, Abuelita Valerie. Eva Longoria, Michael Peña also star as Dora’s parents. Benicio del Toro (Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Guardians of the Galaxy, Sicario) will voice the infamous thieving fox, Swiper, with Danny Trejo (Machete) set to voice Boots.
The film is produced by Christopher Robin producer Kristin Burr, who is joined by longtime Bobin associate, executive producer John G. 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.
Paramount will release Dora and the Lost City of Gold on August 9. In the meantime, catch up on Moner’s body of work by purchasing Transformers: The Last Knight here.
