X-Men fans are in for a treat because it looks like there’s been talks about a possible revival of X-Men: The Animated Series over at Disney.
Voice actors and creators of the fan-favorite X-Men series had a virtual reunion panel with Wizard World Virtual Experiences 2020 last Friday, and during the event, X-Men: The Animated Series animator and producer Larry Houston revealed the show’s possible revival.
““We’ve had talks, but that’s about it. We’ve made conversation and it’s up to them to make the decision, but we’ve let them know that we’re all available for whatever they want to do in the future,” Houston said during the virtual convention.
This is pretty exciting news for mutant fans. X-Men: The Animated Series was pretty popular back in the day. The show was both critically acclaimed and commercially successful, helping Marvel launch quite a number of comic book shows in the 90s. The series generated quite a number of spinoffs including X-Men Adventures. It even generated videogames like X-Men Cartoon Maker and the Capcom Vs. Series.
Earlier this year, there was talk among fans about a potential revival of X-Men: The Animated Series when Disney+ released what seemed to be updated avatars of the characters of the show, though each image retained the distinct design of the series.
There’s also been a lot of talk about the X-Men as of late. Marvel fans have been itching to know about Marvel Studios’ plans for the mutants – it’s been quite a while since Disney’s acquired 21st Century Fox and the studio’s various film and television assets.
Crossing our fingers in hopes that the revival pushes through!
