SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE Home Release Date and Bonus Features Revealed


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is coming to digital home video next week and Blu-Ray next month with a ton of bonus features.

The animated Spider-Verse film is nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe, Critics Choice, and Annie Award. It's playing in theaters right now and I highly recommend going to see it. But Sony announced that the digital release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is coming February 26, 2019. In addition, it's coming to 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on March 19. The disks are going to include over 90 minutes of special features including a new Spider-Ham short.

The movie already grossed over $350 million in theaters worldwide and introduces audiences to the first big screen appearance of Brooklyn teen Miles Morales. "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. That's why we made this film, and we hope that feeling of empowerment is something that both audiences young and old can take away," say Directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman.

The Spider-Verse 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, ZoĆ« 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.



The Spider-Ham short called Spider-Ham: Caught In a Ham is a hilarious parody of Spider-Man trying to enjoy a "100% pure beef" (not really) hot dog before being kidnapped by his greatest foe before getting sucked into another dimension. It's the kind of short that makes you wish his role in Spider-verse were longer and looking forward to an upcoming animated series Sony is apparently working on.

There's also an 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". On top of that, there's The Spider-Verse Super-Fan Easter Egg Challenge. Fans are challenged to find every single Easter Egg hidden within the Spider-Verse (and there are a lot of them!).

Viewers can also explore the character design 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 in a feature called We Are Spider-Man. There's 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.

There's also a touching tribute to comic legends and Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Finally, there are two lyric videos featuring “Sunflower” by Post Malone and Swae Lee and “Familia” by Nicki Minaj and Anuel AA (feat. Bantu).
