Just how much do you know about Spies in Disguise – the upcoming animated spy comedy film produced by Blue Sky Studios? Spies in Disguise, which is loosely based on Lucas Martell’s 2009 short animated film, Pigeon: Impossible, has an ensemble cast. Notably, it will be the first Blue Sky film to be released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, after acquiring 20th Century Fox. Scheduled to be released on Christmas day 2019, the movie will also mark the directorial debut for animators – Nick Bruno and Troy Quane.
The plot revolves around two super spies – Lance Sterling and scientist Walter Beckett, who are exactly opposite of each other. While Lance is smooth, suave, and debonair, Walter, on the other hand, is not. What Beckett lacks in social skills, he more than makes up in creating the awesome gadgets that Lance uses on his epic missions. When things take an expected turn, the duo suddenly has to rely on each other to save the world. If this odd couple can’t figure out how to work as a team, then the whole world would be in peril.
Although it was initially scheduled to drop on January 18, 2019, the release date was later moved to April 19, 2019. Thereafter, the date was shifted again to September 13, before Disney announced that the release date would be moved to December 25, 2019. While we are waiting for Spies in Disguise to hit the theatres, we have taken time out to bring you the stars that make up the ensemble cast.
