Disney Plus X-Men Animation First Look by Marvel Studios

The animated revival of X-Men: The Animated Series was announced back in November 2021. Retitled X-Men ’97, the new series hitting Disney+ promises to continue the story of the original cartoon. This is the first official X-Men or mutant-related project since the company acquired 20th Century Fox.

While the live-action X-Men have been teased in the MCU project Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ms. Marvel, so far, X-Men ’97 is the only official X-Men project in development.

X-Men: The Animated Series originally aired from 1992-1997 on the Fox Kids Network. Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Adrian Hough, Christopher Britton, Catherine Disher, Chris Potter, Alison Sealy-Smith and Alyson Court are all set to reprise their roles. Marvel Studios’ Animation Division promised to deliver more X-Men ’97 updates at San Diego Comic-Con, and it just shipped.
