X-Men Convention Coming to Historic X-Men-like Mansion in 2023

X-Men the animated series

There are conventions for all types of fandoms including Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Supernatural, but soon X-Men fans will get their own with the Uncanny Experience Immersive X-Men Fan Convention. To make this event really immersive, it will be set inside a historic mansion to capture the feel of Xavier’s School in the X-Universe. The X-Men event will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on September 16 & 17, 2023, just in time for the fall release of the X-Men ’97 animated series on Disney+.

Minneapolis Club’s mansion is a historic 1907 building that is making itself available for X-Men fans in September of next year. To make the event even more x-ceptional, special guests include X-Men ’97 voice actors Lenore Zann (Rogue) and Cal Dodd (Wolverine) and comic book writer Chris Claremont. Director/animator Larry Houston (X-Men: The Animated Series) will also be joining, and more guests will be announced at a later date.

Becoming a Student at Uncanny Experience

Each attendee will receive an Uncanny Student ID badge to enter the inaugural fan event that’s produced by Giant-Size Productions. There will be celebrity appearances and signings, cosplay, vendor booths, panel programming, and photo ops. Students can also attend classes and learn about Mutant History, Understanding Tarot with Tarot, and more.

To capture the opening episode of the X-Men animated series, there is a video arcade room.

For those who love to drink, there’s the Hellfire Club, a red-velvet lounge.

Closing out the event is the Graduation Ceremony where students complete their Immersive Experience activations that are stationed throughout the mansion.
