Marvel Studios’ X-Men ’97, which will premiere exclusively on Disney+ in 2023, will resume the animated feature that established the X-Men as a worldwide brand! This all-new animated movie, which recreates the famous period and cast from 1992’s X-Men: The Animated Series, will delight a new generation as well as followers of the previous decade-defining program. Viewers can look forward to a return of this great moment in X-Men ’97, which will include most of the same cast members from the previous series!

Lorraine Cink and Ryan Penagos recently chatted with Brad Winderbaum, Marvel Studios’ Head of Streaming, Television, and Animation, and Dana Vasquez-Eberhardt, Marvel Studios’ VP of Animation, about how they can bring X-Men ’97 to life.

Winderbaum exclaims that it’s the first X-Men movie published by Marvel Studios. He further adds that it is a fantastic way to reintroduce people to the X-Men by focusing on one of the most iconic periods in the franchise’s history, the 1990s. According to him, X-Men: The Animated Series is a benchmark that they get again and again from directors who’ve already come in to pitch on different projects throughout the years.

A significant incident in X-Men ’97 will lead the reassembled X-Men into an all-new phase that will connect with followers of the original series, featuring a familiar squad with the nature of the original program. The program’s executive producer and head writer is Beau DeMayo.

What has happened so far?

Senator Robert Kelly seeks to enact a “Mutant Registration Act” in Congress, requiring mutants to publicly identify their names and talents. Magneto’s ambitions to create a level playing field among mutants and humans commence. Meanwhile, a young woman called Marie (also known as Rogue) flees her family in Meridian, Mississippi. In Canada, she encounters Logan (a.k.a. Wolverine). Both of them are abruptly ambushed by Sabretooth, a mutant and Magneto’s accomplice. Professor Charles Xavier is in charge of the facility and heads a group of mutants who are seeking to make peace with humans, teach new mutants how to use their talents responsibly, and prevent Magneto from launching a war with humanity.

Senator Kelly is abducted by Mystique and Toad and brought to Magneto. Then Magneto utilizes him to trial a device that causes mutations on purpose, but Kelly manages to escape with his new abilities. Rogue is told by Mystique (dressed as Bobby Drake) that Xavier is unhappy with her and that she should quit the Academy when an accident forces her to use her abilities on Wolverine. Xavier uses Cerebro to track down Rogue at a railway station, and Cerebro is infiltrated by Mystique, who dismantles the machine. Wolverine persuades Rogue to remain with Xavier at the train station, but a battle begins when Magneto, Toad, and Sabretooth come to capture Rogue. When Kelly arrives at Xavier’s school, his mutation becomes fragile, and he melts into a muddy puddle.

Magneto plans to utilize Rogue’s talent on himself to fuel his contraption, the X-Men discover. Xavier tries to utilize Cerebro to track out Rogue but ends himself in a coma. Jean Grey repairs it and uses Cerebro to track down Magneto’s contraption on Liberty Island, which Magneto plans to deploy on global leaders gathering for a conference on neighboring Ellis Island. Magneto and Sabretooth incapacitate the gang and proceed with their intentions just as they reach the top of the monument and murder Toad. Rogue is compelled to utilize Magneto’s talents to activate the machine when Magneto conveys his strengths to her. Wolverine breaks free and engages Sabretooth in combat but is pushed over the statue’s edge.

Cyclops, with Jean’s aid, blows Sabretooth out of the statue, and Wolverine reappears. Storm utilizes her talents to transport Wolverine to the peak of Magneto’s contraption while Jean stabilizes him. Wolverine tries to stop the machine and rescue Rogue, but Magneto has recovered some power and stifles Wolverine’s claws. Cyclops is able to hit Magneto with a good shot, injuring him and enabling Wolverine to take down the machine. Wolverine successfully transfers his regenerative powers to a dying Rogue by placing his palm on her face. Professor Xavier awakens from his coma, and the team discovers that Mystique is still active. Xavier sends Wolverine to a military outpost near Alkali Lake on a mission to help him discover more about his background. Xavier pays Magneto a visit in his plastic jail, and the two engage in a game of chess. Magneto tells Xavier that he will keep fighting, and Xavier assures him that he is always there to prevent him.
