X-Men: The Animated Series was a guilty pleasure of mine. In the 1990’s I was already too old for cartoons and too busy making a fool of myself trying to impress girls. Yet every Saturday morning, there I was, in front of the TV. Clearly I hadn’t discovered the wonders of alcohol at this point or there is no way I would have been awake on a Saturday morning.
Many X-Men fans say the cartoon remains superior in every way to the movie efforts. Now producer Larry Houston has confirmed that preliminary discussions have been had with Disney+ about a revival for the Mouse’s streamer.
In yet another virtual con panel, this time for Wizard World, Houston said the reboot has been formally pitched and now we have to wait for Disney to put in the series order. He said the revival would aim to continue where they left off, and look to get the same artists and voice talent on board.
“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. That’s what I would come out of retirement for.”
Cast members George Buza, Chris Britton and Cal Dodd have also talked about their willingness to return.
