A very adorable Spider-Man series is coming to Disney Junior in 2021. Peter Parker, the neighborhood web-slinger, is teaming up with Miles Morales, Gwen, Hulk, Black Panther, and Ms. Marvel to defeat evil foes and learn that teamwork is the best way to save the day in “Spidey and his Amazing Friends.”
“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. He added, “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.”
Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming and General Manager, Disney Junior said “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. This is the perfect series to introduce preschoolers to the super hero powers of friendship and working together to help others in need.”
The new show should provide a perfect stepping stone for preschoolers who are looking for more content on the Marvel universe. Disney also has “Marvel’s Spider-Man” on Disney XD, which follows fifteen-year-old Peter Parker as he tries to balance his teenage troubles and his newfound superhero alter-ego.
“Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends” is executive produced by Alan Fine (“Marvel’s The Avengers”), Joe Quesada (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”), Dan Buckley (“Marvel’s Spider-Man”), Cort Lane (“Ultimate Spider-Man”), and Eric Radomski (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”); co-executive produced by Marsha Griffin (“Marvel’s Spider-Man”), and supervising producer Harrison Wilcox (“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy”).
