Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) PG

The newest Spider-Man movie, Into the Spider-Verse, is everything a Spidey fan could want.  It focuses on Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), a Latinx high school student who is bitten by a radioactive spider.  Miles witnesses Spider-Man (Chris Pine) killed and knows he needs to complete the mission to stop Kingpin from using a massive collider to merge alternate universes, destroying the city—maybe the world—in the process.  He has no idea how to use his new powers until another Spider-Man, Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson), shows up, pulled in from another dimension during the collider's test.

Over their mission, Miles meets four more Spider-people, all of them trying to save the multiverse and get back home.  The art style is comic-inspired and a colorful treat.  The story is filled with joy, hope, laughter, loss, and belief in one's self.  At the end, you'll be beaming with pride over Miles—and don't be surprised if you're starting the movie over to watch again immediately.

And wait, there's more… come back in July to see Heather's take on this movie!
