Does Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse live up to the legend, or does it get ensnared in its own epic web? Doscover the infamous lego scene!

Where can I find ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ Lego?

Is the Spider-Verse ready for a grand comeback? Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is swinging into cinemas, half a decade after the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took the world by storm with its knockout animation and spunky humor. 

This time, the creative team went all in, stuffing the movie with approximately 40 extra minutes compared to the previous installment. The animation? Still a stunner, no doubts there. But with all the visual thrills, there’s a sense that it’s like bingeing on too much candy – sweet, but leaving you a tad queasy. What about Lego fantasies to come for the little builders of the world? Let’s take a look and find out. 

Web of Talent

Did your jaw drop watching the LEGO dimension scene in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse? Good, because that buzz-worthy moment was crafted not by industry veterans, but by a fourteen-year-old prodigy named Preston Mutanga.

This Minnesota-born genius, the son of immigrant parents from Cameroon, caught the bug of creativity early. With LEGOs as his building blocks, young Preston defied instructions and assembled his own car designs. This flair for thinking outside the box didn’t stop there. He even dabbled in comic-making, nurturing his storytelling chops.

But this December, Preston swung into the stratosphere with a groundbreaking project. On his dad’s old computer, he recreated the trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, LEGO style, frame by frame. His past experiments in creating short CGI LEGO videos, guided by YouTube tutorials, paid off big time.

Heartstrings strung

Don’t get us wrong; Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse isn’t slacking off. It’s laying the bricks for an ongoing franchise. But, with so much groundwork, the film sometimes feels like that friend who’s always talking about their next big plan instead of enjoying the moment.

Let’s not forget the heart of the story – Miles Morales, voiced by the charismatic Shameik Moore. He’s back, and this time, he’s not the sole spotlight. Gwen Stacy, brought to life by Hailee Steinfeld, shares the stage as they delve deeper into the parallel universes. Miles’ heartstrings are tugging for Gwen, and honestly, ours are too.

Miles juggles school, skeptical parents, and secret missions, and this juggling act is pure entertainment. When he’s not rushing to a school counselor, he’s facing off against a quirky new villain, the Spot (voiced by Jason Schwartzman). Gwen, on the other hand, is playing with the big leagues, teaming up with an elite spider-squad, led by none other than a character voiced by Oscar Isaac. These spider-pals are the interdimensional police we didn’t know we needed.

Feasting on eyes and souls

Directed by the terrific trio of Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers, and Justin K. Thompson, this Spidey-fest throws an artistic fiesta that’s hard to keep up with. The kaleidoscope of visuals is, without doubt, jaw-dropping. However, the lean, mean storytelling machine of the first movie is somewhat missing. The humor is there, but not as sharp; the characters are intriguing, but not as endearing.

Nonetheless, the movie does strike an emotional chord by echoing the classic Spider-Man mantra – with great power comes great responsibility. Miles learns that being a hero is not just about saving the day, but sometimes about losing things close to your heart. This poignant lesson is the glue that holds the film together.

The creators deserve a standing ovation for the artistic masterpiece that is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. It’s the kind of movie that begs for multiple viewings, though maybe in bite-sized chunks rather than gobbling it up whole. And let’s be honest, we’re all webbed-up for whatever the Spider-Verse has in store next.

So, as we swing out of the theater, the question lingers: Does Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse live up to the legend, or does it get ensnared in its own epic web?
