The groundbreaking animation, dramatic writing, and inventive adaptation of the original comics left an indelible impression on youth all across the globe in the ’90s.

It continues to get praise from critics and spark conversations even after all these years. Considering how turbulent it was when it was airing, this is very remarkable. Let it be said that “X-Men: The Animated Series” had to battle for every dramatic story element it depicted since TV executives weren’t always fair to it.

X-Men ’97

We can put the past in the past and welcome the future of animated X-Men with open arms. However, the plot of “X-Men ’97” remains a mystery. Does it add anything to the plot of the original series? Will the graphics be updated to match contemporary aesthetics, or will they maintain their traditional style? Any of those queries may be answered by us. This concludes our coverage of “X-Men ’97.”

X-Men ’97 Release Date

Get ready to mark January 3, 2024, on your calendars, for the word has officially gone out that “Marvel’s X-Men ’97” will launch. The return of the mutant heroes has been long anticipated by fans, and this date, which was leaked via official means, has only added to their enthusiasm.

X-Men ’97 Cast

You may recognize some of the mutants from the legendary ’90s series since most of the voice actors from that show are returning for X-Men ’97.

Fans of the ’90s series will be relieved to hear that Cal Dodd is reprising his role as Wolverine. In addition to him, we have George Buza reprising his roles as Hank McCoy, Storm, Alison Sealy-Smith, Adrian Hough, and Christopher Britton, who will play Nightcrawler and Mister Sinister, respectively.

In addition, Jennifer Hale, who will be lending her voice as Jean Grey, is one of many famous performers linked to the project. Holly Chou is now lending her voice to Jubilee, and Alyson Court has said that she will not be returning to the role.

X-Men ’97 Plot

There are a lot of ways in which X-Men ’97 will differ from the movies and other recent and notable cinematic adaptations, including the fact that Magneto, and not Professor X, will be directing the X-Men.

Everything that is known about the X-Men at this point includes the new members (Sunspot, Nightcrawler, Bishop, and Cable), the knowledge that they will be facing up against the Sentinel robot army, the Hellfire Club, and Mr. Sinister’s mutant experiments.

Marvel has been tight-lipped regarding the narrative of X-Men ’97, although the new series’ concept was established in X-Men: The Animated Series. So, the plot of X-Men ’97 won’t have to waste time on setting the stage; instead, it can go right into the action.

Additionally, X-Men ’97 will probably adapt X-Men comic book tales from the last decade, similar to how X-Men: The Animated Series became famous for expertly translating iconic ’80s comic book plots like the Dark Phoenix arc and “Days of Future Past.”

Where to watch X-Men ’97?

Disney+ subscribers can now celebrate X-Men ’97, the long-awaited return of the animated series since the House of Mouse has granted their wish. X-Men: The Animated Series, Spider-Man: The Animated Series, X-Men: Evolution and Spectacular Spider-Man are just a few of the animated Marvel series that have found a home on Disney+, even though the huge media giant did not own Marvel at the time. If X-Men ’97 does well, maybe other series that were terminated before their time can receive a second opportunity at a resurrection.

X-Men ’97 Trailer

Although X-Men ’97 is far into post-production, a complete trailer is still missing. X-Men: The Animated Series’ distinctive and comic-accurate graphic style will remain intact in the new series, according to character drawings shown at recent conventions, the only promotional material we have seen thus far.

X-Men ’97 Episodes

Ten episodes will make up X-Men ’97. Also, the excellent news is that production on a second season has already begun.
