Watch the first full trailer for 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,' starring Atlanta's Shameik Moore

Sony Pictures has released the first full official trailer for "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse." It is an animated film set in an alternate universe from previous "Spider-Man" movies.

In "Into the Spider-Verse," there are connected alternate universes and several versions of Spider-Man. The film follows one Spider-Man named Miles Morales, a half-Puerto Rican, half-African-American teenager from Brooklyn. He encounters alternate-universe versions of Spider-Man, including Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in the movie. 

Morales is voiced by Shameik Moore, 23. Moore is a rapper born in Atlanta. He appeared on the Netflix show "The Get Down" as Curtis "Shaolin Fantastic" and in the critically acclaimed movie "Dope."

"I've always loved superhero cartoons," he said. "When they started coming to live, like the live-action movies, obviously I was like, 'Oh!' And I said, 'If I'm going to be the voice of Miles Morales it needs to be as believable as possible.'"

"Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" also stars Hailee Steinfeld as Spider-Gwen, Mahershala Ali as Miles' uncle Aaron, Luna Lauren Velez as Miles' mother Rio, Jake Johnson as Peter Parker, Brian Tyree Henry as Miles' father, Liev Schreiber as the crime lord Kingpin, and Lily Tomlin as Peter's Aunt May. It is scheduled to release Dec. 14, 2018.
