One of the most popular animated series on Disney+ is Marvel’s X-Men from the 1990s and there has been some recent discussion about the show being brought back for Disney+. Similar to “Lizzie McGuire“ and “The Proud Family”.
Recently the original series producer, Larry Huston spoke to the Wizard World podcast, as part of a X-Men: The Animated Series reunion panel, about a 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. Whatever they wanted to do if we had all the original team … if we could do a special, a one-off episode, or a five-part episode. That’s what I would come out of retirement for.”
Check out the full virtual panel below:
Disney has been embracing the original 1990s series lately, including adding classic X-Men profile avatars to Disney+.
The original X-Men animated series includes many classic stories from the comic books, which have since been adapted for the live action movies, including Days of Future Past, the Phoenix Saga and Dark Phoenix.
Nothing yet has been confirmed regarding a revival of the X-Men animated series and personally I’d love to see it return, since this was one of my favourite shows as a kid.
The 1990s Marvel X-Men series is available on Disney+ now.
Would you like to see the X-Men return with a new animated series?
