Tom Holland and Will Smith are teaming up to voice characters in a brand new family comedy film called Spies in Disguise. This film is being done by Blue Sky Studios and is coming out sometime during 2019. Smith will be voicing the cool and charming top spy Lance and Holland is voicing his tech guy Walter who invents gadgets for Lance’s missions. When Lance needs to go undercover for a mission Walter decides to invent a device that ends up turning Lance into a pigeon. Pigeons are everywhere especially in big cities to the point no one really pays them any attention but being turned into one himself doesn’t make Lance very happy.
Despite being small and silly looking birds’ pigeons are actually really intelligent and fast flyers. Pigeons can outmaneuver Hawks and were trained during WWII to carry important war messages throughout Europe. Actually, the pigeon has been used as a carrier pigeon since as early as 3000 years ago. Because of their history it makes sense to have the spy Lance turned into a pigeon to spy on people. They’re fast, intelligent, and easily blend into surrounding making them the perfect spy bird.
