Fox Animation Rounds Out Voice Cast for ‘Spies In Disguise’

Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, DJ Khaled and Masi Oka join Will Smith and Tom Holland in Blue Sky’s forthcoming animated spy caper.

Fox Animation has added a bevy of new voices to the cast of its upcoming CG-animated feature, Spies in Disguise, according to a report by Deadline.

Joining Will Smith and Tom Holland are Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation), DJ and music producer DJ Khaled, and Masi Oka (Hawaii Five-0).

Spies in Disguise is a buddy comedy set in the high-octane, globe-trotting world of international espionage. Smith (Men in Black) voices Lance Sterling, the world's most awesome spy. Cool, charming and super-skilled, saving the world is his occupation. And nobody does it better.

Almost the exact opposite of Lance is Walter, voiced by Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming). Walter is a great mind but perhaps not a great socializer. What he lacks in social skills though, he makes up for in smarts and invention: Walter is the scientific genius who invents the gadgets Lance uses on his missions.

But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. And if this odd couple can't learn to work as a team, the whole world is in peril.

Directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane, Spies in Disguise is a Fox Animation production, with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. The project is based on Pigeon: Impossible, an original animated short film by Lucas Martell. Spies in Disguise hits theaters January 18 September 13, 2019.

Tom Holland voices super-genius Walter alongside Will Smith’s super-spy Lance Sterling in Fox Animation’s ‘Spies in Disguise,’ due in theaters on September 13, 2019.
