  • Disney held their Disney Plus Day on Friday, November 12.
  • During the presentation, Marvel Studios unveiled a bevy of new projects.
  • One of those upcoming projects is a revival of the iconic X-Men cartoon from the 1990s.

Of the many announcements that were rolled out during Disney Plus Day, one of the most exciting — at least as far as millennials are concerned — was the reveal that the beloved X-Men animated series was being revived. X-Men first premiered on Fox Kids Network on October 31, 1992, and ran for five seasons until 1997. Given the title of the series, it’s possible that X-Men: ’97 will pick up exactly where the original show left off.

Yup, according to Marvel Studios, X-Men: ’97 is in the works and will hit Disney+ in 2023. Not only that but virtually the entire original voice cast — which includes Cal Dodd, Lenore Zann, George Buza, Adrian Hough, Christopher Britton, Catherine Disher, Chris Potter, Alison Sealy-Smith, Alyson Court — will be returning for the series. It’s also worth noting that X-Men ’97 will likely be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe title that the X-Men feature in following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox (who previously held the rights to the X-Men) a few years ago.

In addition to the announcement of X-Men ’97, Marvel Studios also unveiled first-looks at Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel, and announced a bevy of titles that will hit Disney+ next year, including Echo, Ironheart, I Am Groot, Secret Invasion, Marvel Zombies, Agatha: House of Harkness, Spider-Man: Freshman Year, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. All told, Disney Plus Day was a hell of a day for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans.
