Will Smith is busier than he’s been in years. Along with the upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin which has him playing The Genie, he’s got a new Bad Boys film on the way (That’ll be in the next post), and this animated spy film in which he plays both a spy and a pigeon. OK, I guess they are still the same character, but Smith’s super spy looks like he’ll be spending a good chunk of the story as a rat with wings. Along with Smith, the film stars an impressive cast that includes Tom Holland, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, DJ Khaled, and Masi Oka.
Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is… not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic 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 is an animated comedy set in the high-octane globe-trotting world of international espionage.
