Marvel is including your preschoolers in the hype come 2021! Although some of the Marvel films are more kid-friendly than others, Disney Junior's animated series, Spidey and His Amazing Friends, will be the first full-length Marvel series specifically aimed at preschoolers and their families.
The series will follow Peter Parker and his friends Miles Morales and Gwen, aka Ghost-Spider, as well as other heroes such as Hulk, Black Panther, and Ms. Marvel. Spidey will team up with his friends and the heroes "to defeat evil foes and learn that teamwork is the best way to save the day."
"Preschool kids already love Spidey, so they'll be delighted to have Peter Parker thwipping across their screens in this new series," Cort Lane, senior vice president of Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, said in a press release. "Everyone at Marvel is thrilled to launch our first preschool series on Disney Junior, the gold standard platform for the audience. We believe parents and kids will be excited about these stories filled with themes of friendship, cooperation, solving problems and using your abilities to help others."
