I'm a little surprised no other site has covered this (at least from what I can tell), but here's an article about the Annecy Fest. It's in French, so you might need a translator for the page (and keep in mind some things might be translated incorrectly). Nothing new is really revealed, but I figured it would be worth sharing here.

Judging the positive response of the Trailer the movie is getting, a lot of people says that the movie can put Sony Pictures Animation back on the Map after last year's release of The Emoji Movie.

Hard to believe we live in a world where Sony has a Spider-Man animated movie and a critically panned Emoji film featuring Patrick Stewart as the voice of a Poop.

It may look good, but I hope the writing is solid. Visuals, no matter how awesome they are, only go so far for me, because eventually I’ll stopped being mesmerized and be more concerned about the story when watching the film. Sony’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 has funny cartoony visuals but it didn’t make up for the weaker plot.
Heck, even a great story can make up for crummy visuals.

The article on Marvel.com has some more details about the toys.
Set for release this fall, the Marvel “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” toys include a 6-inch figure assortment featuring Miles Morales, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man, and Marvel’s Prowler, plus the Super Collider playset, scaled for the 6-inch figures, which comes with a Miles Morales figure. There’s also a Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Titan Hero 12-inch figure of Miles Morales, plus a Shock Strike Miles Morales Spider-Man figure, and the Marvel Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Countdown Collection, which includes figures, stickers and more.

Kingpin and Goblin being massive really makes you worry about Miles with his skinny frame. I'll give Into the Spider-Verse credit for its body diverse characters.
I also noticed Spider-Gwen's feet look more like ballerina shoes, so I'm curious if that will play into how she fights/moves :).

We also see that Miles' spider-emblem looks kind of spray-painted onto his costume, so maybe that's leaning into his artistic side that the movie seems to be addressing :cool:?

To think a few years back when got the marketing poster I noted it reminded me of NY graffiti. Didn't realize it would become a character trait/hobby of Miles. You know the visuals are strong when you can details out of a character without being told. Also Miles likes drawing , Gwen likes ballet, and Peter liking photography (maybe not this version). I guess our spider heros like the arts. :cool:
One last note: I do think the emblem is clever but I hope Miles gets his comic suit at the end. ;)

Entertainment Weekly has an interview with Shameik Moore, plus a new image of Miles fighting Green Goblin.
"and must learn how he fits into a world where there are already multiple Spider-People swinging around, including Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) and a very jaded Peter Parker (Jake Johnson)." So...does that mean the older Peter and Gwen are all from Miles' Earth? Because I assumed they'd all be from different dimensions (and the Peter of Miles' Earth ends up dead) :confused:.

I guess having to live up to the responsibility of Spider-Man despite not wanting it is a change of pace...
