Disney +’s Streaming Strategy for ‘X-Men ’97’ Revealed

xmen 97 release

Marvel Animations revival of the beloved X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men ’97 will hit Disney Plus beginning March 20th. The new series–which is NOT MCU canon–will pick up where the nostalgic 90s series left off and will see the team try to keep the dream of Charles Xavier alive after he was shuttled off to space by Lilandra Neramani following an attempt on his life. While the release date was officially revealed in mid-February, some questions have remained about HOW it will be released on Disney Plus. Now it seems those have been answered.

According to an official listing on Disney Plus, it looks as though fans can expect episodes of the series to be released weekly beginning on March 20th rather than the entire series becoming available that day. Barring any two-parters that could be released on the same day, that means the tenth and final episode of Season 1 will hit Disney Plus on May 22nd.
