"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."

Beau DeMayo serves as head writer; episodes are directed by Jake Castorena, Chase Conley and Emi Yonemura. Featuring music by The Newton Brothers, the series is executive produced by Brad Winderbaum, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and DeMayo.

The X-Men '97, an all-new series which features 10 episodes, begins streaming exclusively on Disney+ on 20th March.

Are you looking forward to X-Men '97 on Disney+? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. I am so excited for this! I'm not sure I've been excited for anything MCU/Marvel since Guardians 3 (which, to be honest, hasn't been that long) but I have high hopes that the X-Men/mutant related stuff will pump some energy back into Marvel.

    I've been watching the original series in preparation for this (just finished the Phoenix Saga) and I picked up the full second series of the X-Men '97 Legends last week, so I'm stoked. The original show still holds up amazingly well, so I have high expectations for the newest season.

    1. It's really refreshing to see something outside of the MCU! And I'll be collecting the X-Men '97 action figures on Hasbro Pulse.
