Benicio Del Toro Joins Cast of 'Dora the Explorer'
In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Benicio del Toro is The Collector. Now he's adding "Swiper" to his resumé.
Del Toro will voice villain Swiper the Fox in the "Dora the Explorer" live-action movie.
The film, based on the Nickelodeon TV series, wrapped production in Australia two weeks ago. But since Del Toro’s role is a CG character, his work is just beginning.
Isabela Moner ("Instant Family") stars as teenage Dora and Michael Peña and Eva Longoria as her parents. (Speaking of the MCU, can there be a segment where Peña narrates third-hand events a la "Ant-Man"? Because we would love that.)
"Dora the Explorer" will be released on Aug. 2, 2019.
Del Toro previously voiced another extremely untrustworthy animated animal, the The Snake in Netflix's "The Little Prince."
He was last seen in the Golden Globe-nominated Showtime series "Escape at Dannemora."
