Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Discovery Family Film Club

Living in Brooklyn, superhero Miles Morales has to combine his high school life with the demands on his time of righting wrongs and defending the underdog. So far, so familiar. But when he learns of the SpiderVerse, a fusion of several parallel universes, he discovers a whole gang of ‘other’ webslinging Spideys, including Spider-Gwen, Spider-Ham and Spider-Man Noir...

"He discovers a whole gang of ‘other’ webslinging Spideys..."

Planning an animated version of the Spider-Man stories, the filmmakers created a team of 140 animators to create a unique visual style. To do this they blended together the in-house computer animation of Sony Pictures Imageworks with traditional hand-drawn comic book techniques inspired by the work of Miles Morales's co-creator Sara Pichelli. When they were happy with the finished version, they likened it to a ‘living painting’. Taking the sparkling visuals, they then added a strikingly comic overtone, to create a very modern take on the ancient legends of the Spider-verse.
