Sony’s animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is flying high in theatres grossing the highest December opening ever received by an animated movie. The film reportedly earned $35.4 million in the first three days of its release in the United States and Canada.
According to a new report coming from Film Music Reporter, Sony Classical and Sony Pictures Animation will release A Very Spidey Christmas, a new EP of songs tied to Spider-Verse.
The holiday playlist will feature several Christmas songs that were featured in or inspired by the animated film including Up on the House Top by Chris Pine, Joy to the World performed by Shameik Moore, Deck the Halls performed by Jake Johnson and The Night Before Christmas 1967 (Spoken Word) by Jorma Taccone. It will also include Chris Pine’s rendition of “Spidey Bells (A Hero’s Lament)”, which played during the film’s end credits and didn’t make its way onto the film’s original soundtrack.
You can listen to the “Spidey-Bells” full song on YouTube below.
A Very Spidey Christmas will be released digitally on Friday, December 21.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Rothman, the animated superhero tells the origin story of Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and takes him on a journey where he meets a number of Spider-people from different universes, including Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), Peni Parker (Kimiko Glenn), and Spider-Man Noir (Nicolas Cage), to take down the villainous Kingpin (Liev Schreiber), Green Goblin, and The Prowler.
Made on a production budget of $90 million, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has already made more than $63 million at the global box office in just five days of release.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is currently playing in theaters everywhere.
