There are few sounds that get Marvel fans more excited than a cameo of a certain TV show theme song. They heard it in Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. They heard it in Ms. Marvel. And they’re going to hear a whole lot more of the cinematic jingle on Disney+ starting March 20.

That’s when the new animated series X-Men ’97 hits the streamer in full force.

As the trailer immediately makes clear, this new series isn’t actually new at all, but a continuation of the now-classic animated series that ran on Fox Kids for five seasons from 1992 to 1997.

Beyond the consistent animation style and storyline continuity, Marvel is really leaning into the nostalgia factor. The trailer opens with an ancient TV screening scenes from the original finale, and the official poster for the new series is a fun lineup of VHS tape spines.

The approach balances the tricky task of satisfying lifelong fans’ appetite for X-Men, while introducing these characters to a new generation before they are eventually incorporated into the broader Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This isn’t the first time Marvel has tapped its past to stoke present fan excitement. For 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, we saw a return of Sony’s other live-action Spider-Man franchises with Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and a handful of villains. In 2022’s Multiverse of Madness, we got Patrick Stewart temporarily back as Professor X, as well as John Krasinski as a newer version of Mister Fantastic, and Anson Mount depicting Black Bolt.

However, these were mere temporary flashes. Just a taste of past favorites. X-Men ’97, on the other hand, appears to be a shot of pure nostalgia—from content to marketing—straight into the veins.
