The film received awards from seven divisions including an Academy Award®, multiple Annie awards and the Golden Globes Award for Best Animated Motion Picture. This hugely famous masterpiece is finally going to be released! The theme song for the Japanese dubbed version of the film will be “P.S RED I”, which was released on 6th March by TK from Japanese indie rock band Ling Tosite Sigure. A special Spider-Verse version has been adapted for use in the film, and to celebrate the release of the film, a full-sized collaboration music video has been created and will be viewable for a limited period of 24 hours only!


“P.S RED I” by Ling Tosite Sigure ー music video (Spider-Verse version)

The theme of the music video is “freeing ourselves from the shackles of the world we created ourselves”, which perfectly matches the movie’s theme. For Spiderman alone, there is the concept of living like a spider where the web he spins is his home and also a trap to catch prey. If he has no luck in catching food, he can throw this life away, leaving the web behind to catch prey in a different lifestyle. This music video was derived from the two concepts of freeing oneself from the shackles of the small world we have created, and the theme of gaining courage to leave our comfort zones. The music video involves a dancer freeing themselves from chains to move freely and the stoic figure of TK.

To pay homage to the Japanese dubbed version of the film, you can also catch glimpses of Tokyo in the movie, even though the film is set in New York! This makes the music video even more fitting for its purpose! The music video original version will be released in the future, however the collaboration music video “Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse will only be viewable until 23:59 on 8th March so please check it out asap!
