There have been many unlikely friendships that have formed in film. From different toys to humans and dragons, we’ve taken a look at the best ones below. We begin with one of film’s newest unlikely friendships, Lance Sterling and Walter Beckett, in the upcoming spy adventure, SPIES IN DISGUISE!

1. Lance Sterling and Walter Beckett (Spies In Disguise)

Super spy Lance Sterling and scientist Walter Beckett are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is…not.  After Walter and Lance suddenly have to work as a team, they realise they have more in common than they thought, creating an unlikely friendship!

2. Rocket and Groot (Guardians of The Galaxy)

It could be said that all of the characters within Guardians of The Galaxy are unlikely friends, but Rocket and Groot share a friendship that stands out from the rest. Rocket and Groot come together with their want to save the galaxy, becoming an inseparable and powerful team in the process.

3. Hiccup and Toothless (How to Train your Dragon)

A human, Hiccup, and a dragon, Toothless form an unlikely friendship despite Hiccup’s village believing stories about dangerous dragons. When put their differences aside, Hiccup and Toothless’ friendship breaks the barrier between dragons and humans, and they become close friends with an unbreakable bond.

4. Shrek and Donkey (Shrek)

Who would have thought that an ogre and a donkey would team up and become best friends? Shrek and Donkey have gone through a lot together over the years, from taking down evil kings to overcoming scheming princes.

5. Woody and Buzz (Toy Story)

Sherriff Woody and space ranger Buzz, two very different toys, eventually formed a heart-warming friendship despite not getting along with each other at first. Together, they’ve had a rollercoaster of a ride from nearly being separated from their owner Andy, to Woody getting lost from the group when they go on a road trip.
