Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is back with new trailer.

This time around viewers get to see Miles Morales' day-to-day life in animated form. Dope's Shameik Moore voices the leading man while New Girls' Jake Johnson joins as Morales' mentor from another dimension, Peter Parker.

The rest of the cast is pretty stacked with stars as well. Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali voices Morales' uncle Aaron (who was played by Donald Glover in Spider-Man: Homecoming) while Atlanta star Brian Tyree Henry voices Morales' father, Jefferson, who is also a cop. Hailee Steinfeld joins as Spider-Gwen while Luna Lauren Velez will voice Miles' mother, Rio. Aunt May will also make an appearance, with Lily Tomlin as the voice behind the character. Oh, and Liev Schreiber will be trying out his villainous ways as the Kingpin. 

"We are lucky to have such an amazing cast of funny, genuine creative souls to populate the Spider-verse," said producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story before they got booted). "They have generous minds and great big hearts. And they have very talented throats. Which is where their delightful voices come from."

As for the leading Spider-Man, Miles Morales, the creative duo are looking forward to him getting his shine. "We can't wait for the world to see Miles Morales on the big screen," read their statement. "He's such a fun and exciting new character, and telling his story through a revolutionary visual style makes for a totally fresh cinematic experience that, if we may say so, is freaking amazing."

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse arrives in theaters on Dec. 25.
