One of the reveals to come out of Marvel Animation’s D23 panel was a brand new Spider-Man animated series. But unlike the one that currently airs on Disney XD (Marvel’s Spider-Man), this one is being geared towards preschoolers and their families.
Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends is set to debut in 2021 and is the first full-lenght Marvel series created for the Disney Junior audience. The series will see Peter Parker’s Spidey teaming up with his fellow spider firends Miles Morales and Ghost-Spider (Gwen Stacy) as well as other Marvel heroes such as Hulk, Black Panther, and Ms. Marvel, to defeat evil foes “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,” said Cort Lane, senior vice president, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment. “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.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Marvel on this new series showcasing the exciting adventures of Spidey and his friends as they model the importance of teamwork and helping others in their community,” added, Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior. “This is the perfect series to introduce preschoolers to the super hero powers of friendship and working together to help others in need.”
Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends wasn’t the only thing to come out of the Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment panel. A new trailer for Marvel Rising: Battle of the Bands — Marvel HQ’s latest animated special — was shared as well.
