Calling all Spider-Man fans, the newest film is all about the kids!

Ever since Tom Holland was cast as Peter Parker aka Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming he has catered to the franchise’s younger audience, including sharing photos of on-set pranks on his Instagram account.

Now, the British actor has revealed that the movie itself is totally kid-friendly and actually made to cater towards children’s viewpoints.

“You’ve seen the billionaire, the scientist, the solider. Now it’s time to see the kid,” Holland told The Hollywood Reporter in their Next Gen 2016 issue. “And every decision we make on set is based off how would a kid react in this situation.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming does revolve around a teenage Peter Parker, so the fact that kids will relate to the newest Marvel film makes total sense. Holland also explained that it’s not as violent as you’d expect from a superhero movie, because again it’s a film that kids can — and should — go to see.

“So every fight scene we have is designed in a way that’s almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone,” the 20-year-old actor told the publication. “It’s all done kind of by accident. I think the biggest difference is his youth and innocence.”

So in case you needed another reason to get excited about this action movie, now we know that it is kid friendly, which means not only will kids be flocking to the theaters, but honestly adults are going to love it too!
