Will Smith and Tom Holland were a part of one of the best-animated movies of 2019, Spies in Disguise. But looks like Will Smith and Tom Holland took being spies a bit too seriously because the actors did not meet each other for two years despite working on the same film. Spies in Disguise is a 20th Century Fox animated movie directed by the famous duo Nick Bruno and Troy Quane. To add the icing on the cake was the intriguing screenplay by Brad Copeland who Lloyd Taylor.

The character of Lance is voiced by Will Smith and Walter Beckett by Tom Holland. Furthermore, the highlight is Beckett turning Stanley into a pigeon. Spies in Disguise consisted of hilarious banters that one could swear comes from years of friendship. However, Smith and Holland had never even met each other before or even during the production.
