When I found that Disney XD was rebooting Duck Tales, I freaked out and had Disney Afternoon Flashbacks. Then when Disney announced that David Tennant was the voice of Scrooge McDuck, the inner Whovian in me went nuts! Now we have our first trailer with the whole cast.
Among those set to voice the fan-favorite characters in the revival are Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack. Other characters will appear in the series as well, including Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys.
The new DuckTales series’ adventures will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews—Huey, Dewey, and Louie—and the optimistic-yet-temperamental Donald Duck embark on high-flying adventures worldwide. Other beloved characters slated to be in the new stories are Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.
“DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history,”Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming, and General Manager, Disney XD, previously said. “It drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks’ comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”
A generation’s seminal cartoon, DuckTales led the daily syndicated cartoon block “The Disney Afternoon” with 100 episodes produced from 1987–‘90. An animated theatrical film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, premiered in 1990. The DuckTales revival will debut in summer 2017.
