Share on Pinterest

From multiple news sites, including MovieWeb, we have learned that actors Will Smith and Tom Holland will lend their voices to the upcoming 2019 animated film, Spies in Disguise.

Based on an animated short by Lucas Martell, entitled Pigeon Impossible, Spies in Disguise will be about two secret agents, voiced by Will Smith and Tom Holland. Will Smith’s character, Lance Sterling, is said to be “the world’s most awesome spy”, whilst Tom Holland’s character, Walter, is a gadget man lacking in social skills. Together, the two must learn to work as a team to save the world, else “the whole world is in peril.”

The film will be the directorial debuts of Nick Bruno (Ice Age: The Meltdown, Epic, The Peanuts Movie) and Troy Quane (Hotel Transylvania, The Peanuts Movie, Ferdinand). The film will be a Fox Animation production with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. The film is set to hit theaters on January 18, 2019.

    All I can say about Will Smith and Tom Holland teaming up in animation is AWESOME! But hopefully this won’t rely on potty humor like Ice Age.

    “Based on an animated short by Lucas Martell entitled Pigeon Impossible, Spies in Disguise will be about two secret agents voiced by Will Smith and Tom Holland.”

    Uh, wasn’t that short film about a pigeon who makes some random spy’s (who’s not one of these guys) mission harder?

    • Yes, that was what the short film was about, but there’s no info yet on how much of the pigeon-related plot will be in this new film.

      • Manuel Orozco

        l’m sure it won’t be so bad

  • Meh. This movie could end up being good or bad. I remain cautiously optimistic.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I don’t blame you on account of Blue Sky’s track record. I stopped watching Ice Age after Meltdown but am looking forward to Ferdinand.

  • Karl “Karlamon” Smith

    Deadshot and Spider-Man in the same movie? Sign me up!

    In all seriousness though, I can see this having potential of being a fun comedy. Will Smith is a great actor, and hopefully this will redeem him from Shark Tale, the last animated film he voiced in.

  • Harith Sami

    Shark Tale 2: they are spies now . . . Wait, that was the plot of Cars 2, am confused now.

  • Sebastian

    Actually sounds rather interesting, it’s not a sequel. And I know that Blue Sky can make some good movies. I love the first Rio and just rewatched Horton. I’m cautious but also a bit excited.

    • Manuel Orozco

      I think I told you this before I liked Epic and Robots. But Peanuts was great

  • Harith Sami

    To be honest, Epic wasn’t that epic and the Peanuts movie was good (but overrated because of adult’s nostalgia), but the director of Hotel Transylvania can make funny animated slapstick, so am optimistic, either Will Smith’s character design seems on par with Oscar from Shark tale.

    • Manuel Orozco

      Overrated? oh please

      • Harith Sami

        *A bit, am not a fan of movie vignettes.

        • Manuel Orozco

          Fair enough

        • Manuel Orozco

          Because I normally prefer a movie with a straight and narrow storyline where every element is connected by a certain theme or emotional core. Of course Peanuts wasn’t our first exposure to vignettes. But how it came together to tell Charlie Brown’s emotional journey if not perfect was surprisingly well done. Thank the Schulz family for that

  • This sounds super intriguing! I’d totally watch for sure!! :DD

  • Marielle

    That sounds more interesting than another animal comedy. At least they are human!

    • Manuel Orozco

      I don’t blame you. I mainly enjoy animal movies for the entertainment value even if I’m not a big animal person. I would do something with humans any day!

      • Marielle

        It’s not because I don’t like animals, it’s because the movies are unoriginal.

        • Manuel Orozco

          I understand. Sometimes we get tired of storylines being repeated

  • I’ll certainly give it a go!

    Heck, it already sounds much more pleasing than Toy Story 4 or some other sequel that’s currently getting made by Disney or Pixar.

  • Cute art style, but aren’t spies always in disguise? Isn’t that what makes them spies?
