Marvel Animation Drops Official Trailer for X-Men '97

Marvel Animation has finally released the official trailer for X-Men '97, giving our very first look at the highly-anticipated revival of the '90s animated series.

They also revealed that the series will premiere on Disney+ this March 20. It is unclear yet whether the episodes will be released weekly or the entire season will be available on the premiere day.

The preview began with a clip from the final episode of X-Men: The Animated Series where a dying Charles Xavier said his goodbye to the team before segueing to the main part of the trailer.

As shown by the footage, the new series will be a direct continuation of the original animated series as they immediately deal with the aftermath of the final episode's events. It also has an updated animation style while still retaining the 2D-style look.

Most importantly, the original show's iconic theme song was prominently used throughout the trailer, confirming that it will be retained in the revival series.

There is also a Spider-Man easter egg in the earlier part of the trailer as they showed a Daily Bugle newspaper with the web-slinger mentioned in one of the headlines, which might be a nod to the original's crossover with the '90s Spider-Man animated series.

This is a promising first look at the upcoming series since it shows that they are committed to continuing what the original did even with the updated animation and it's exciting to see what they have in store.
