Sony released the official trailer for the upcoming animated adventure, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”
This Spider-Man adventure follows Miles Morales, a teenager from Brooklyn who falls into another dimension and discovers there are others with the powers of the spider. The film is animated, and features the voice talents of Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, and many more.
Shameik Moore is the voice of Miles Morales. He starred in the series “Incredible Crew” and “The Get Down.” In addition to this film, he is also set to appear later this year in James Franco’s “The Pretenders.”
Jake Johnson voices Peter Parker, somewhat of a mentor to Miles. Johnson’s breakthrough role came with the Fox TV series “New Girl.” He also had roles in films like “21 Jump Street” and “The Mummy.” He will be in theaters next week in the comedy, “Tag.”
Hailee Steinfeld is Gwen Stacy, one of Spider-Man’s love interests. She was nominated for an Academy Award for her breakthrough role in “True Grit” in 2010 when she was just 14. She also starred in two of the “Pitch Perfect” films. Later this year, she will star in the Transformers spin-off, “Bumblebee.”
Other stars lending their voices to the Spider-Verse include Mahershala Ali, Brian Tyree Henry, Liev Schreiber, and Lily Tomlin.
Three directors divided the duties on “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” Bob Perischetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman all directed pieces of the film.
Perischetti worked in animation on films including “Puss in Boots,” “Monsters vs. Aliens,” and “Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit.”
Ramsey also comes from the art department where he worked on films like “Minority Report,” “Shark Tale,” and “Sausage Party.”
Rothman is a writer and producer who worked on “22 Jump Street,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.”
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller produced “Into the Spider-Verse” together. Lord also wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from the comic series.
Sony Animation will release the film in theaters nationwide on December 14.
