From Spider-man to animation, Tom Holland, along with Will Smith, have been added to the voice cast of 20th Century Fox’s new animated comedy, Spies in Disguise.
Based on the original animated short film from Lucas Martell, Pigeon: Impossible, the production from Fox Animation, Chernin Entertainment and Blue Sky Studios will be helmed by Rio and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs’ and animator Nick Bruno and Troy Quane who both make their feature film directorial debuts.
Will Smith is the supremely smooth and confident Lance Sterling, secret agent extraordinaire. Tom Holland is Walter – the somewhat less debonair scientist and inventor who provides Lance with an array of amazing gadgets…
The original short film followed a secret agent who almost triggers a global conflict when a pigeon gets stuck in a government-issued nuclear briefcase.
The official synopsis for the film reads; Spies in Disguise is a buddy comedy set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage. Will Smith will voice 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 Tom Holland. 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.
Spies in Disguise will be released by Fox on January 18th 2019.
