Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends are heading to Disney+ this summer, with a new series featuring the web-slinger – and a bunch of a shorts to boot.
Premiering on Disney Channel and Disney Junior in the USA this August, Marvel’s Spidey and his Amazing Friends is the first full-length Marvel series for preschoolers. The series follows Peter Parker, Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy, and their adventures as the young heroes team up with Hulk, Ms Marvel, and Black Panther to defeat evil foes like Rhino, Doc Ock, and Green Goblin, and learn that teamwork is the best way to save the day.
The series voice cast includes Benjamin Valic (Sonic the Hedgehog) as Peter Parker, Lily Sanfelippo (Disney Junior’s The Chicken Squad) as Gwen Stacy and Jakari Fraser (Ben Is Back) as Miles Morales.
Marvel’s Spidey and his Amazing Friends is produced by Disney Junior and Marvel Entertainment in association with Atomic Productions. Harrison Wilcox (Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest) is executive producer, and Steve Grover (Hello Ninja) is supervising producer. Chris Moreno (Disney Junior’s Muppet Babies) and Chris Gilligan (Disney Junior’s T.O.T.S.) serve as supervising director and consulting director, respectively. Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy) is the series’ composter and also performs the theme song.
While a release date isn’t yet confirmed for Disney+ in the UK – where Disney Junior has been folded into the streaming service – the House of Mouse’s subscription platform will be introducing us to the show’s characters this July, with a series of 10 animated shorts titled Meet Spidey and His Amazing Friends. They debut on Disney+ on 21st July.
