KEY POINTS

  • "X-Men: The Animated Series" producer Larry Houston has confirmed his talk with Disney on a possible revival
  • Houston said the creative team is "all available" for Disney's future decision
  • "X-Men: The Animated Series" ran for five seasons from 1992-1997

Anyone who was born in the 80s and 90s surely has watched some, if not all, of the episodes of “X-Men: The Animated Series.” The cartoon, which was aired from 1992 to 1997 became a childhood staple that it evolved to collecting action figures, comics and anticipating what evolved to be a plethora of superhero-centric movies.

It's nostalgic to hear the theme song while at the same time hard to forget how Morph died or when Scott and Jean got married. Suffice to say, there are a lot of fans who want to relive those moments and producer Larry Houston is among those who are pushing for its revival.

Houston answered rumors about “X-Men” during a Wizard World panel last Friday, August 7 and said that he, together with the creative team behind the hit series, has had talks with Disney about a possible revival.

“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,” said Houston, according to IGN.

The producer and director, who is “semi-retired,” first spoke of a potential revival last year, said The Wrap. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Houston said the creative team was “putting together a pitch” to continue where the series left off.

Fast forward to his talk last week, Houston admitted that he would be interested in doing the project “if we could do a special, a one-off episode or a five-part episode.”

“Whatever they wanted to do if we had all the original team. That's what I would come out of retirement for,” said Houston.

While this is not a guarantee that Disney will make it happen, the fact that Houston has reached out and aired his interest will make fans anticipate every news leading to a possible revival. Screen Rant sees Houston's proposition as a “limited series” of no more than 10 episodes that would dwell on an “X-Men” timeline that “wasn't adopted in the original series” and a space to reveal some of the newer mutants “that have been created in the intervening years.”
