Now that Spider-Man: Far From Home has enjoyed its time in theaters, including an extended cut of the movie being shown over Labor Day weekend, there’s just one thing left: to arrive on home media. Well, good news on that front, as the release dates for the Digital HD and Blu-ray/DVD copies of Far From Home have been announced, and they’ll be packed with over an hour of bonus features.
Straight from Sony itself, you’ll be able to purchase up Spider-Man: Far From Home digitally starting September 17, and for those of you who’d rather wait for the Blu-ray combo pack, 4K Ultra HD combo pack or DVD, those will hit shelves on October 1. As with a lot of movies nowadays, there’s a quicker turnaround between the theatrical release and home media release, so if you didn’t manage to catch Far From Home in theaters, you won’t have to wait much longer to watch it in the comfort of your own home.
As for the extra content, one of the most notable of the bunch is an original short called “Peter’s To — Do - List,” which has Peter Parker running some errands before going on his trip to Europe. This footage was included on the Spider-Man: Far From Home theatrical re-release, and it’s unclear if there’ll be an option to watch that sequence included in the movie or if it can only be viewed separately.
Aside from other deleted/extended scenes, a blooper reel and a video of Mr. Harrington and Mr. Dell offering tips on how to travel across Europe, Spider-Man: Far From Home comes packed with a lot of behind-the-scenes looks, from exploring all of Peter Parker’s different Spider-Man suits in the movie to E.D.I.T.H. (the A.I. program in Tony Stark’s glasses) highlighting Easter eggs you might not have noticed.

Along with earning a lot of positive reviews, with a $1.122 billion worldwide haul, Spider-Man: Far From Home has not just become the highest-grossing Spider-Man movie, but Sony’s highest-grossing movie ever, knocking 2012’s Skyfall from the #1 spot. The sequel picked back up months after Avengers: Endgame’s game-changing events and saw Spidey clashing with Mysterio and The Elementals, a conflict that left him in an unexpected place.
In the weeks after Spider-Man: Far From Home’s theatrical release, it looked like Tom Holland’s Peter Parker still had a bright future ahead of him in the MCU, but Marvel and Sony’s disagreements have put the kibosh on any future collaborations. Maybe that will change like the James Gunn/Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 situation did, but as things stand now, while Holland is set to keep playing the Web-Slinger, his next Spider-Man movie and any others that follow will be Sony-only productions that are unconnected to Marvel Studios’ continually-expanding franchise.
