LEGO Spider-Man scene in Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse was animated by a 14-year-old YouTuber who recreated the movie’s trailer. For years now, fans have been recreating trailers to multiple movies in different formats.

Whether that be through the use of stop motion or CGI. This has been done with various Marvel and DC movies over the years.

Furthermore, the most recent that’s been rebuilt in the form of the historic toy brand is Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse. 14-year-old YouTuber Preston Mutanga, beautifully crafted a shot-for-shot remake of the Spider-Verse sequel’s trailer in LEGO using CGI.

Upon sharing his work with the world, the reimagined trailer was a colossal hit amassing over a million views. In addition, it even caught the attention of Spider-Verse producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

To no one’s surprise, they were astounded with what Mutanga had created at such a young age. The pair are also responsible for The LEGO Movie so their amazement is understandable.

Moreover, Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse even featured a hilarious scene set in a universe entirely made out of LEGO. It sees this universe’s plastic version of Spider-Man reporting to Oscar Isaac’s Miguel O’Hara.

LEGO Spider-Man was voiced by Nic Novicki. It turns out this fun moment was animated by Preston Mutanga and was added in at the last minute.

Talking to The New York Times recently, Chris Miller said:

“We found out that it was a 14-year-old kid who made it and we were like, ‘This looks incredibly sophisticated for a nonadult, nonprofessional to have made, it blew us all away, including some of the best animators in the world.”

Mutanga also offered a comment on this incredible opportunity he was given, the aspiring artist explained:

“One new thing I learned was definitely the feedback aspect of it, like how much stuff actually gets changed from the beginning to the final product, getting to work with the people who actually made this masterpiece was honestly like a dream.”
