Still not sure whether to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse? Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Sony Pictures Animation today have brought online the first 9 minutes of the Oscar-winning film so you can get a great extended look at the film. The winner of Best Animated Feature Film is now available on Digital and will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on March 19.
From Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the uniquely creative minds behind The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street, the film offers a fresh vision of the Spider-Man universe with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a film that has grossed over $360 million in theaters worldwide to date, introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the iconic mask. “One of the most rewarding experiences in recent months has been to hear that children are telling their parents that they see themselves in Miles, or that they want to grow up to be like Spider-Gwen, anyone can be a hero. Thats why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away,” said directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.
The voice cast includes Shameik Moore as Miles Morales alongside Jake Johnson (New Girl) as Peter B. Parker, Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) as Gwen Stacy/Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali (Green Book) as Miles’ Uncle Aaron, Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Jefferson Davis, Lily Tomlin (Grace and Frankie) as Aunt May, Luna Lauren Velez (How To Get Away with Murder) as Rio Morales, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies) as Mary Jane, John Mulaney (Big Mouth) as Spider-Ham, with Nicholas Cage (The Croods) as Spider-Man Noir, Kathryn Hahn (Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation) as Doc Ock, and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) as the villain Kingpin.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse arrives filled with engaging bonus materials that are fun for the whole family and give fans even more of the unique comic book style action that they loved in theaters with over 90 minutes of bonus content. In his very own original short, Spider-Ham: Caught in a Ham, fan favorite Spider-Ham defeats his greatest foe, delivers sidesplitting puns, and get sucked into another dimension! It actually can get weirder!
Don’t miss the thrilling “Alternate Universe Mode” where fans can view the film in an entirely new way to discover alternate scenes, plotlines, characters, and more with the filmmakers as their guide. Also included is “The Spider-Verse Super-Fan Easter Egg Challenge,” where fans are challenged to find every single Easter Egg hidden within the Spider-Verse (and there are a lot of them!). Explore the character design in the visually stunning film including specific looks at the now-iconic Spider-Ham character as well as the classic villains who inhabit the Spider-Verse.
Additional special features include a celebration of the diversity in the film and the idea that anyone can wear the mask in a feature called “We Are Spider-Man,” a featurette called “Spider-Verse: A New Dimension,” where fans can hear from the artists and filmmakers who pushed the boundaries of the comic book artform to create a visual experience unlike anything done in animation before, a showcase of all the amazing fan-favorite characters featured in the Spider-Verse and the actors who bring them to life, and a touching tribute to comic legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who originally created the Spider-Man character.
