The first trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse brought us to the end of the world, but for some fans of the classic ’90s cartoon, aspects of the trailer may have looked very familiar.

One YouTube user took footage of X-Men: The Animated Series and mixed in the dialogue of the trailer to create a vintage look that’s sure to be a welcoming change to the recent mix of superhero movies. Some of the ages might be off (characters such as Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler are younger in Apocalypse), and not all of Apocalypse’s horsemen line up perfectly between each version, but everything else is spot-on. The characters, the tension, and the total destruction with a fraction of the special effects budget.

It may not be how the Apocalypse storyline plays out on X-Men: The Animated Series, but we’d pay to see an animated version of this movie.
