The following contains light spoilers for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an absolute miracle of a movie. Not only does it have a beautiful appreciation for its central characters and their comic book medium origins, but also it also just has this perfect child-like appreciation of play.
Those who sat through the end credits waiting for that post-credits scene know what we’re talking about. Near the end of the credits, patient viewers are entreated to a cut from the Miles Morales’ universe’s Peter Parker Spider-Man’s Christmas album. The track, “Spidey-Bells (A Hero’s Lament)” is sung with great aplomb and enthusiasm from that Spidey’s portrayer…AGAIN SPOILER ALERT. I REPEAT. SPOILER ALERT…Chris Pine and it’s just absolutely wonderful.
Now Sony is expanding greatly on that fun little Spidey Easter-Egg and giving us an entire EP of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Christmas tunes, according to Film Music Reporter.
Sony Classical and Sony Pictures Animation will be releasing the A Very Spidey Christmas digitally on December 21.
The five-song EP will give the other Spider-Men and Women an opportunity to get involved on the Christmas carol fun. Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) will sing as will Miles Morales, himself, Shameik Moore. Here is a full track list.
1. Joy to the World – Shameik Moore (1:40)
2. Spidey-Bells (A Hero’s Lament) – Chris Pine (2:41)
3. Deck the Halls – Jake Johnson (2:05)
4. Up on the House Top – Chris Pine (1:45)
5. The Night Before Christmas 1967 (Spoken Word) – Jorma Taccone (2:45)
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has a pretty strong appreciation of music in film. Sony imprint Republic Records previously released a soundtrack featuring 14 original songs that appear in and were inspired by the film. Post Malone, Vince Staples, and more were all included on that soundtrack. Those were all big gets certainly but so are Chris Pine and Jorma Taccone singing Christmas songs.
