Exclusive Spies in Disguise clip: Bringing the characters to life
20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have shared an exclusive clip with ComingSoon.net from their latest hit animated adventure Spies in Disguise, with directors Nick Bruno and Troy Quane sharing the development of bringing the characters to life from their 2D sketches to 3D computer designs. The clip, from the “Infiltrating Blue Sky Studios” bonus feature, can be viewed in the player below! Spies in Disguise is flying to digital platforms, 4K UHD and Blu-ray on March 10!
Set in the high octane globe-trotting world of international espionage, Smith voices Lance Sterling, the world’s most awesome spy. Cool, charming and super-skilled, saving the world is his occupation. And nobody does it better. Almost the exact opposite of Lance is Walter, voiced by Holland. Walter is a great mind but perhaps not a great socializer. What he lacks in social skills though, he makes up for in smarts and invention: Walter is the scientific genius who invents the gadgets Lance uses on his 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.
Nick Bruno (Epic, The Peanuts Movie) and Troy Quane (Ice Age: Collision Course) will co-direct the feature, the first feature-length directorial effort for either animator. Spies in Disguise is a Fox Animation production, with Blue Sky Studios and Chernin Entertainment. The project is based on Pigeon: Impossible, an original animated short film by Lucas Martell which you can watch in the player below.
The film opened in theaters this past Christmas and was a hit with critics and audiences alike, who praised its cast and its undemanding and fast-paced story, and was a modest box office hit, grossing over $170 million on a $100 million budget.
