In addition to Boone’s confirmation of a January premiere for it, comic illustrator Bill Sienkiewicz revealed in an interview with Kevin Smith on his Fatman on Batman podcast that Boone sent him a new work-in-progress trailer, calling it “phenomenal,” saying it gave him chills and that “it feels more Marvel in terms of what they’re doing.”

Reshoots were originally ordered by Fox to try and expand on the positive feedback to the horror elements in the first trailer. They were slated to film again in September 2018 for an August 2, 2019 release date, but without the additional production scheduled the film’s release date had been left in limbo. Sources say that the decision to move forward with the reshoots lay in writer/director Josh Boone’s hands.

The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy (SplitThe Witch) as Magik and Maisie Williams (Game of Thronesgen:LOCK) as Wolfsbane, with Henry Zaga (13 Reasons Why) as Sunspot, Blu Hunt as Dani Moonstar, and Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton as Cannonball.

The New Mutants adapts the monthly comic book series of the same name that launched in 1982. Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, The New Mutants follows on a group of teenage mutants as heroes in training in the Marvel Universe. The feature is expected to be a departure from the sci-fi-action spectacle of other X-Men films and is instead being described as a “Stephen King meets John Hughes”-style horror movie.

In November 2017, ComingSoon.net exclusively revealed a leaked concept animatic from the film, which features Wolfsbane, Magic, and Cannonball facing the Demon Bear.
