Technically, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse doesn’t hit Netflix until June 26. If you have yet to see this movie, you should put it at the top of your list as soon as it hits the streaming service. If you’ve seen the movie, you probably can’t wait to watch it again.

The film is the first animated feature film in the Spider-Man franchise. It follows young Miles Morales (Moore) who turns into Spider-Man. He later meets other five versions of Spider-Man from different universes, called the Spider-Verse. They must come together to stop a threat that could affect all of their universes. Besides the mess that Miles has found himself in, he must deal with issues within his own family.

The animation is absolutely stunning and the story itself is funny, yet heartfelt. Many people consider it one of the best overall movies of 2018. The movie won Best Animated Feature Film at the Academy Awards. A sequel is reportedly on the way, something that fans are delighted to hear.
