What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is an animated superhero adventure that adds a twist to the familiar Spidey story. Miles Morales (voiced by Shameik Moore) is a prep school student from Brooklyn with web-slinging powers. But then he meets another Spider-Man named Peter Parker (Jake Johnson) who claims to be from a different dimension. Miles slowly starts to trust Peter as the older man trains Miles how to reach his powers' full potential. They team up with another "spider-person," Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), to take on an inter-dimensional threat. This movie doesn't take place in the same universe as Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it's based on the 2011 Marvel comics (and novel) that first introduced the young, mixed-race Morales. In addition to stunning animation, you can expect some violence, peril, rude language, and flirting, but overall this will likely be a tween-friendly web-slinger adaptation.
