Watch an exclusive clip of Disney Junior’s ‘Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends’
Disney is getting ready to launch the latest addition to its superhero lineup: “Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends,” the first full-length Marvel series for preschoolers.
This series aims to immerse audiences in the adventures of a young Peter Parker (Benjamin Valic), Miles Morales (Jakari Fraser) and Gwen Stacy (Lily Sanfelippo) as they team up with young versions of other classic Marvel heroes including Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Black Panther. They even encounter iconic foes including Doc Ock, Green Goblin and Rhino.
For the record:
1:32 p.m. June 18, 2021An earlier version of this post stated that “Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends” would be available on Disney+. No announcement has been made yet about that platform. The exclusive clip is from one of the new animated shorts, not from the “Marvel’s Spidey” series. Air times for the “Meet Spidey” shorts have been added and the broadcast time for “Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends” has been revised.
The three youngster versions of these beloved characters work together as Team Spidey to protect their community and always save the day.
Before the series premieres, Disney will roll out 11 new shorts starting Monday to give fans a preview of the Spidey Team in action.
In the clip below, which comes from one of the shorts, Doc Ock has been disturbing the peace but fortunately the trio of heroes is there to make things right. Peter Parker and Miles Morales arrive at the scene first, then Gwen Stacy shows up to make sure Doc Ock knows they mean business.
“Meet Spidey and His Amazing Friends” premieres Monday at 9:25 a.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel and 7:25 p.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Junior. The series “Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends” premieres at 9 a.m. Aug. 6 on both Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
