X-Men ’97 Trailer Officially Released By Marvel

No Comments

Marvel Studios has released the first full trailer for X-Men ‘97. This has been a long time coming for many superhero fans who grew up in the ‘90s. While the show was only announced a few years ago, viewers have been waiting for this ever since X-Men: The Animated Series went off the air in 1997. Now, nearly 30 years later, we’re finally going to back up with this beloved incarnation of the mutants. Check it out. 



The trailer should feel like a blast from the past. The characters largely look like the version that we remember from the ‘90s, with some exceptions. Morph is back and he looks quite a bit different. There’s also the Magneto reveal, which is pretty surprising. There is plenty of action and yes, that classic theme song from the original series is back. The animation is very polished while retaining that retro look. It very much feels like the show that everyone has been waiting for. 


Here is the synopsis for X-Men ‘97. 


“X-Men ’97 revisits the iconic era of the 1990s as The X-Men, a band of mutants who use their uncanny gifts to protect a world that hates and fears them, are challenged like never before, forced to face a dangerous and unexpected new future.”


The voice cast includes Ray Chase as Cyclops, Jennifer Hale as Jean Grey, Alison Sealy-Smith as Storm, Cal Dodd as Wolverine, JP Karliak as Morph, Lenore Zann as Rogue, George Buza as Beast, AJ LoCascio as Gambit, Holly Chou as Jubilee, Isaac Robinson-Smith as Bishop, Matthew Waterson as Magneto and Adrian Hough as Nightcrawler. Several members of the original voice cast have returned, with some new additions as well. 


X-Men: The Animated Series premiered in 1992. It was a big success for Marvel at the time and ran for 76 episodes across five seasons. The revival of the show is the first X-Men project produced by Marvel Studios. When Disney purchased Fox in 2019, the rights to the X-Men reverted back to Marvel. While a movie reboot is being planned as well, it’s in the realm of animation that the X-Men make their on-screen post-merger debut. Marvel Comics is also publishing a prequel comic to coincide with the show’s release. 


Beau DeMayo serves as the head writer of X-Men ‘97. The series is directed by Jake Castorena, Chase Conley and Emi Yonemura. The Newton Brothers composed the music for the series, which is executive produced by Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and DeMayo.


X-Men ‘97 hits Disney+ on March 20.
