We don't know why this trailer is animated but given the all round anticipation for the new series of The X Files, we will take what we can get.

As you have probably heard already, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are reprising their roles as the iconic Mulder and Scully for a new series of the hit nineties TV show.

The trailer below is bizarre enough but if you fancy an actual glimpse of what you can expect when the show returns then check out the trailer that aired in September below that.

The six-part series will premiere in the US on January 23rd.
