The official Twitter page wasn’t the only place the date was announced. Writer and producer Christopher Miller also shared the news on his Twitter account. Sony Pictures Animation announced the sequel’s new date as well. Fans are buzzing with excitement about what’s to come.

It makes sense for a sequel to happen considering the large fan following and the movie’s impressive 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. As for the spin-off project in the works, no official date has yet been given, so it’s unclear what we’ll end up seeing first.

A romance is brewing in the sequel

The first film ends with an understanding that the Spider-People who are friends with Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) return to their realities, however, there’s still a way to travel and/or communicate between different dimensions.

Amy Pascal, a producer, has already revealed that the new movie will include something cut from the first movie, a romance between Miles and Gwen Stacy’s alternate-reality superhero self. The new movie will most likely be a story involving multiple universes while also focusing on the duo.

The first movie is critically-acclaimed

The first movie has already scored a number of awards under its belt. It won an Academy Award for best animated feature film as well as a Golden Globe for best animated motion picture. It also took home a Saturn Award for best animated film.

Fans are excited about the sequel to ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’

Fans can’t wait to see the highly-anticipated follow-up to the amazing first movie that will hopefully be just as good. Reddit is full of fans expressing their feeling about the new movie’s announcement date. “As long as it’s even 80% as good as the original it’s going to be awesome,” one user commented.

“If it’s as good as the original, I can see it enjoying a big increase. $520M WW is my early guess,” another Reddit user said.

“Animated films take longer to make that live action, if this movie was to have a year turnaround, that’d probably mean the staff was overworked and underpaid to get the movie out on time, and that wouldn’t be good,” a user wrote.

“If there was any movie that deserved a sequel.. it is definitely this one. There is so much things to explore in this verse and so many new story lines they could develop,” a Reddit user said.

“Now this is big news. I just watched the first one and I have to say it’s the best animated superhero movie since the Incredible’s in my opinion,” a Reddit user wrote.

Fans can’t wait to explore the Spider-Verse further. Hopefully, it will be worth the wait in the end.
