Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland made an appearance at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim today, just days after Disney and Sony’s standoff over the Spider-Man film franchise ended with Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige no longer being involved in it.
“It’s been a crazy week,” Holland said from the stage, “but I want you to know I am grateful from the bottom of my heart and I love you 3,000.”

Holland was there to promote Disney and Pixar’s Onward, the upcoming animated film in which he stars with Jurassic World and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Chris Pratt as teenage elf brothers who embark on a quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
“Last time we here, we were space buddies fighting on Titan,” Holland said, referring to the duo’s joint 2017 D23 appearance to promote Avengers: Infinity War, in which Holland portrayed Spider-Man and Pratt played his Guardians of the Galaxy character Star-Lord. “Now we’re elf buddies, fighting in L.A..”
Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer also star in the animated film.
“We’ve made five great movies. It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life,” Holland told EW backstage. “Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”
