Just in Time for Your Family Movie Night This Weekend -- SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is Now Available to Own on Digital, 4K ULTRA HD™ COMBO PACK, BLU-RAY™ COMBO PACK AND DVD (Review) #SpiderManFarFromHome

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.



Usually we wait until Friday or the weekends to have a family movie night, but after receiving a review copy of the new SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME release in the mail yesterday, it was hard to wait until Friday to watch it.  My girls have been eagerly awaiting the release of this movie as they are both huge Spider-Man fans, and love Tom Holland as Spider-Man.  

I ended up tying the movie into our homeschooling, thanks to FREE science activity cards (scroll down to see them and download them, so you can enjoy with your family) that explained and let my girls try their hand at levitation with tinsel, bending light and even making square bubbles, which was their personal favorite.  These science concepts were all seen in the new release, and make for a fun follow-up science lesson. :-)

As far as the movie goes, it seems like each new Spider-Man movie gets better and better with every new release.  SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is now my family's favorite.  It was so entertaining and full of twists and turns with the plot line.  Fans of Jake Gyllenhaal will love seeing him as Mysterio...I know I did. :-) In addition to the full-length film, the new Blu-Ray, DVD and 4K Ultra releases also contain some amazing bonus content that includes an all-new short film "Peter's To Do List", cast bloopers (keep reading as I shared the gag reel video below -- it was too funny not to share!), deleted scenes and Stealthy Easter Egggs (Blu-ray exclusives).  Not only was the movie enjoyable to watch, but the addition of an hour of special features made for a great afternoon spending time with family while getting our Spider-Man fix.

If you are fans of the Spider-Man franchise or want to see how things played out after the Avengers: Endgame release, then you will want to pick up the new SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME to enjoy with your family.  This is one of those movies your entire will enjoy watching together, and want to watch time and time again.  We can't wait for Friday to get here, as we plan to watch SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME again, as it was so good! :-)
Check out the super hilarious gag reel below, which you will find in the bonus content section of this new Sony Pictures Home Entertainment release...

And, if you are looking for some educational science activities to do with the kids before or after watching SPIDERMAN: FAR FROM HOME, here are some fun (and FREE) science activity cards to download and print out, and do with your family. My girls and I did the science activities yesterday after watching the movie, and had so much fun with them.  It was fun to science activities at home, that were seen in the movie.  I know you and your kids will love bending light and learning about levitation. 

Master the mysterious by trying out these awesome science activities!
