It is indeed rare and refreshing to see someone other than Disney foray into major animated movies. Thus, ‘Spies in Disguise’ becomes a welcome change. The animated spy comedy is based on ‘Pigeon: Impossible’, a 2009 short film by Lucas Martell. The film released on December 25, 2019, and revolves around a spy who turns into a pigeon, thanks to his assistant’s tinkering.
Since the movie garnered praise for its voice acting, animation, and action, you might be wondering if there will be a sequel. Here’s everything we know about ‘Spies in Disguise 2’.
Spies in Disguise 2 Plot: What Can It Be About?
‘Spies in Disguise’ holds the wonderful Christmassy message that violence does not solve all situations, and we must look for nonviolent resolutions. Apart from that, it is a spy movie focused on action and comedy, as Lance, the superspy is turned into a pigeon while trying to become incognito. He and Walter, the whizkid inventor, go on a run from their own government which tries to bring the operatives in. In the run of the mill plot, what we really get is a charming duo that works well together. Therefore, ‘Spies in Disguise 2’ will be looking to recreate this magic first and foremost.
The sequel is more than likely to give us a brand new adventure where the superspy goes gallivanting with the inventor. While Lance might have been dismissive of Water’s inventions earlier, he is likely to be wary but more accepting of them now. We might get to see a new villain popping up unless Killian becomes the constant nemesis that Lance must vanquish. While this only sets the premise of the upcoming sequel, the question we really need to ask is if there will be pigeons in ‘Spies in Disguise 2’. After all, in the first movie, they are rather crucial, taking Lance in while he is on the run from the government. It would be a little repetitive to have pigeons in the upcoming film, but they might be there in some assistive capacity in Lance’s missions.
It would be important to note here, that while the first movie had the 2009 short film to rely on, the upcoming film will have to come up with a brand new story, meaning that the people behind the project essentially have the creative license to take the tale anywhere they want to.
Spies in Disguise 2 Cast: Who Can Be In It?
In the event that ‘Spies in Disguise 2’ is made, two cast members are sure to return. These include Will Smith and Tom Holland. Experts tracking the box office collections state that Holland and Smith’s involvement in the film is crucial to its earnings since their star power and appeal to younger crowds are unparalleled. Moreover, it is their chemistry that makes the movie fun to watch. The consensus is that Smith has won over hearts even in an avian form, while Holland’s fun portrayal of the inventor has made him a favorite in the film.
In case the villain remains the same, Ben Mendelsohn will be back as Killian, the bad guy with a bionic arm. The actor has delivered a fine performance already as his character oozes malicious intent. However, there is a chance that the sequel might be looking to expand its base and go with a new villain for Lance to take down.
Spies in Disguise 2 Crew: Who Can Be Behind It?
In the event that a sequel is made, there is a good chance that Troy Quane and Nick Bruno will be back in the director’s chair. The duo has done a good job making the first movie likable despite a slightly iffy start and will be looking to improve the content in the sequel. While there is a chance that Cindy Davis might come up with a story once again, we would not be surprised to see someone else coming up with the plot for the sequel, which will have to be completely thought up without relying on any source material.
Since 20th Century Fox stands to gain from ‘Spies in Disguise’, they are likely to be on board as distributors for the sequel as well.
Spies in Disguise 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Spies in Disguise’ was announced in 2017, and came out in 2019. Naturally, we expect the sequel to take lesser time since a cast is in place. However, even if it is announced right away, we have to take into account the schedules of Holland and Smith, who are both busy actors. Smith has quite a few projects in development, while Holland has a rather full plate as well. Therefore, the earliest we can expect ‘Spies in Disguise 2’ to release is in 2022 or later.
