Rumor About the Next Stern Disney Themed Pinball Machine

Stern Pinball has a very close relationship with Disney, having produced a number of Marvel and Star Wars pinball machines over the years. Stern representatives have said numerous times over the years that this relationship will continue. The question is, which Disney movie or series will the next Stern Pinball machine be based upon?


I was sitting here surfing the web and I came across a new rumor on Pinside that I found to be very believable...a future Keith Elwin pinball machine for Stern will be based upon the upcoming Disney+ animated series "X-Men '97."


Disney is making a big push with this new animated series based upon the X-Men franchise, there's tie-ins with actual physical Marvel comics, Lego kits, toys, etc... At some point in the thousands of pages of stuff that I've read about pinball over the past year I remember seeing another mention of Stern doing an X-Men pinball machine again in the future.


Stern did two Avengers pinball machines, so why not two X-Men? The X-Men '97 series is scheduled to debut on Disney+ in 2024, with some sources saying early in the year.


Note to the Pinside Peanut Gallery 🥜 - no all of my articles are not based on stuff from the site lol, admittedly this particular one is though. So thank you for it :). I have no idea if it's true but it's definitely one to add to our watch list. It seems very possible to me.

😒 Good theme but Another licensed theme pin. Miss the years with creative original themes like white water and medieval madness. I enjoyed black Knight, it was unforgiving at times but I felt I was battling with the black Knight. Give the pinball designer freedom to be creative and see what happens.

Oh no, please not another comic pin! On the other hand, they dropped the ball on Jaws, so yes, yes, please keep doing comic pins and leave the dream themes to anyone but you.

Not another marvel pin?!! How about some DC love. Seven Marvel pins have been made by Stern, and Disney has killed the franchise and over saturated it.

The one to do would be a Batman the Animated Series. That was awesome. Unfortunately, the extraordinarily talented Kevin Conroy (who iconically voiced this Batman) passed not too long ago. It would be hard to envision that pin without his voice work. Though, hearing Mark Hammil's Joker again would be pretty freaking sweet.
