The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.

All right, let's do this one last time. My name is Peter Parker. I was bitten by a radioactive spider, and for ten years I've been the one and only Spider-Man. I'm pretty sure you know the rest. I saved a bunch of people, fell in love, saved the city, and then I saved the city again... and again and again and again. And I, uh... I did this.

There is a dedication in the closing credits to "Spider-Man" creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who passed away in 2018.
It is an image of Stan Lee's glasses with a quote: "That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero. Thanks to Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, for showing us we're not the only ones." See more »
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is more than a pleasant surprise, which was at first a risky move for Sony judging by their recent "successes".
From the presentation alone it is easily decipherable that a lot of love and passion was put into this project, making it the visual masterpiece that it is.
The story, while being mostly formulaic still does enough to satisfy new and returning audiences to the superhero genre. Combined with the visual style and presentation, Into the Spider-Verse almost feels fresh.
The biggest issue, which is more of a personal preference is the music. The film chooses today's hip hop music over an actual musical score which is understandable but still managed to take me out of the film.
Another slightly smaller issue is the epilogue, rather the way the film sets it up. Press a button and save the world. It's as silly as it sounds.
In terms of comedy, Into the Spider-Verse does a solid job, but manages to be annoying at times with its usage of Spider-Ham.
On the contrary Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is worth a watch solely for its visual style and presentation. The story is just icing on the cake.
Final Grade: 8/10
