Titled X-Men ‘97, the show was officially announced during Disney’s celebration of the streaming service. Disney made use of a popular meme from the original show to make the announcement. Have a look. 


“We’ve missed you, too. See you in 2023 with all-new episodes,” the tweet reads. 


The cast for the series includes Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Alison Sealy-Smith, Chris Potter, Catherine Disher, Adrian Hough and Christopher Britton. Some of the cast members will reprise their original roles.  Others, meanwhile, are voicing entirely brand-new parts. It wasn’t made clear who will return to their original roles as of yet. Jennifer Hale, Anniwaa Buachie, Ray Chase, Matthew Waterson, JP Karliak, Holly Chou, Jeff Bennett and AJ LoCascio will join as new cast members. 

Here is a brief logline for X-Men ‘97. 


Following a familiar team with the ‘DNA of the original show,’ an impactful event in X-Men ‘97 will launch the reunited X-Men into an all-new chapter that will resonate with fans of the original series.”


Beau DeMayo serves as head writer and executive producer on X-Men ’97. The show’s supervising director is Jake Castorena and supervising producer is Charley Feldman. X-Men: The Animated Series producers and showrunners Eric and Julia Lewald are also on board to consult. Original series director Larry Houston is also consulting on the show. 


Dana Vasquez-Eberhardt, VP of Animation at Marvel Studios, had this to say. 


“This is the first X-Men title produced by Marvel Studios. What an amazing first step to reintroduce audiences to the X-Men with a look at one of the most pinnacle eras of the X-Men comics, which was the ‘90s. That iconic style that has its roots in Chris Claremont, and is celebrated in Jim Lee, and then again in ‘The Animated Series.’”


“As an animated show, the original X-Men was the forerunner to some amazing action series. Everyone that is making X-Men ’97, top-down, is a fan. On this project, instinctually, we knew exactly what this is. To bring this series forward and pick up that baton, and not just keep running at the same pace, but to really elevate. That’s the responsibility,” Vasquez-Eberhardt added. 


X-Men ‘97 is set to arrive on Disney+ in 2023.
