Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse won the Oscar for Best Animated movie. To celebrate the win, Sony will be releasing an alternative version of the film with more footage.
During a recent interview, director Bob Persichetti revealed an Alt-Universe Cut, which is an “extra” version of the movie.
“[Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse] had an unusual amount of material at every stage of production. So, an insane amount of storyboard material, like insane, like break your high end edit systems insane. An insane amount of layout, an insane amount of finished animation that didn’t make it into the movie… an unusual amount. So the Alt-Universe Cut contains a bunch of that stuff that we chose not to put in the movie, but that in an alternate universe easily could have ended up in the movie. So, uh, that’s kind of the premise behind it.”
Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse will be available on Blu-Ray and 4K HD on March 19.
