As Disney & Sony are seemingly still over odds about how or if Spider-Man will continue to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or settle into Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, Disney is making sure they still have a Spider-Man related offering for some fans.
As reported by Variety, Disney Junior will be the home of a brand new animated series Spidey and His Amazing Friends, the first full length series for the network, starring Peter Parker as well as his amazing friends Gwen Stacy/Ghost Spider and Miles Morales/Spider-Man in 2021. Geared towards Preschoolers and their family, the series will follow the trio along with other heroes like Hulk, Black Panther, Ms. Marvel and more in their battle against evil.
“Preschool kids already love Spidey, so they’ll be delighted to have Peter Parker thwipping across their screens in this new series” Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment Senior Vice President Cort Lane in a statement. “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.”
The series will debut at some point in 2021.
