Will Smith, Tom Holland Cast as Blue Sky’s ‘Spies in Disguise’

Feature film based on short film ‘Pigeon: Impossible’ due in theaters Jan. 18, 2019.

Tom Holland voices Walter and Will Smith plays Lance Sterling in Blue Sky Studios’ ‘Spies in Disguise.’

Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios have cast Will Smith and Tom Holland in the upcoming animated film Spies in Disguise. 

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 Jan. 18, 2019.
