Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse changes everything we know about the title character and the animation medium. Looking back, it is no wonder it won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Visually, it’s unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Every single frame looks like a comic book panel come to life. Then there’s the story, which is equally impressive as we not only get to see a new side of the Spider-Man lore but also a timely origins story that comes to life as it echoes the importance of representation.
Now is the time to bring the animated sensation home because the film arrives on 4K, Blu-ray, Digital, and DVD today. Loaded with a ton of bonus features that include deleted scenes, in-depth making of features, a tribute to Stan Lee, and so much more, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an absolute must-have for anyone who is a fan of the character, Miles Morales, or just the animation medium itself. Check out the full review below.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brought in a variety of animation styles into one film. The traditional CG animation, a purely black and white noir character, and an anime character. But if there was one that truly brought some personality to the film, it’s the wacky Looney Tunes take on the webslinger called Spider-Ham. And he’s exactly as you would picture him: a bipedal pig with the same powers as Spider-Man, with all of his action reminiscent of Looney Tunes.
Now with the film arriving on home video, we are getting a sneak preview of the bonus features that will be available on the Blu-ray, 4K, and digital releases. Check out what kind of bonus features you will be able to see, plus preview videos for the “Caught In A Ham” special animated short and “Embracing Imperfection” below.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is ending up on many critics’ top ten lists for their favorites of the year – including my own. The film dazzles the screen with moving comic panels and comes alive with pop-up action blurbs. It’s unlike any other film you’ve seen before. It only gets better with a new web spin on the classic webhead. We don’t have to hear another retelling of Peter Parker’s story. Instead, Miles Morales swings in as the lead, breathing new life into the Spider-Man lore.
And now, you can read the script, written by co-producer Phil Lord and co-director Rodney Rothman, for yourself. It’s full of self-deprecating humor, hilarious gags, heartfelt moments, and heart-stopping action. Check it out below.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse included a joke about how the title character’s enormous popularity expanded to cereals, a decent Popsicle, and of course, a Christmas album. Those who stuck around for the end credits got to hear a sample of one Webslinger (Chris Pine) from one universe sing “Spidey-Bells,” which is a play on the popular Christmas song “Jingle Bells.” But that song wasn’t included in the soundtrack or released digitally, as it would have conflicted with the themes of the actual score. But for those who were hoping to be able to get the Christmas songs, Sony Pictures Animation has heard your prayers. A Christmas EP has been released digitally and is available now.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a new sneak peek video for their much-anticipated animated feature Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film features an impressive cast including Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren Velez, and Lily Tomlin all giving the various characters their voices.
The video is actually described as an “Extended Sneak Peek,” though it’s not even a minute long. But while short, it still offers plenty of peeks at the movie and features some of the different “Spider-people” you can expect to see when it’s released including Spider-Noir, who is being voiced by Nicolas Cage; Peni Parker, who is being voiced by Kimiko Glenn; and Spider-Ham, who is being voiced by John Mulaney.
