Marvel Studios animated series Spider-Man: Freshman Year is opening the yearbook on Peter Parker's untold origin story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Announced during Disney+ Day's Marvel Studios 2021 streaming special sizzle reel, Spider-Man: Freshman Year reveals what happened to the spider-bitten teenage high school student before being caught in the web of the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland first played a 15-year-old Peter Parker in 2016's Civil War, set two months before 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. The first Spidey solo co-produced by Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios established Peter as a sophomore attending Midtown School of Science and Technology.
Spider-Man: Freshman Year "follows Peter Parker on his way to becoming Spider-Man in the MCU, with a journey unlike we've ever seen and a style that celebrates the character's early comic book roots," reads the official synopsis.

Jeff Trammel (Disney's Amphibia and The Owl House, Cartoon Network's Craig of the Creek) serves as head writer and executive producer. Marvel-Disney did not announce who would voice Peter Parker in Freshman Year.
An animated Spider-Man, voiced by Hudson Thames, appeared in the "What If... Zombies?!" episode of Disney+'s What If...?, Marvel Studios' first animated series. Previous Spider-Man animated series produced by Disney — but not Kevin Feige's Marvel Studios — include Marvel Animation and Disney TV's Ultimate Spider-Man and Disney XD series Marvel's Spider-Man.
Disney+ on Friday also announced X-Men '97, a revival of the beloved '90s animated series and the first X-Men title from Marvel Studios, Season 2 of What If...?, and animated spin-off series Marvel Zombies.
Read on for more Marvel reveals from Disney+ Day 2021. Holland's Peter Parker returns in Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios co-production Spider-Man: No Way Home, the new movie playing exclusively in theaters on December 17.
