Spies in Disguise opens this Christmas

Reba McEntire has been added to the voice cast of the upcoming animated film, Spies in Disguise. The Fox Animation feature also voice stars Tom Holland, Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, DJ Khaled and Masi Oka with Will Smith leading the cast as Lance Sterling, the world’s most awesome spy. The Hollywood Reporter first broke the news about McEntire’s addition to the all-star cast.

The project is based on an original animated short Pigeon: Impossible. The animated film is co-directed by Nick Bruno and Troy Quane and comes from Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. Mark Ronson serves as executive music producer for the film.

Information on McEntire’s role hasn’t been unveiled as of press time. “So excited to join the cast of Spies In Disguise!!! The movie will be in theaters this Christmas,” McEntire shares on Facebook.

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.

Spies in Disguise is set to hit theaters Christmas Day 2019.
