Disney’s “DuckTales” reboot hasn’t even premiered yet but the network has already ordered a second-season of the highly anticipated show. Disney XD released a preview trailer earlier today for the series, showing off the new art-design, and reintroducing the beloved characters.
The animated-comedy series is based on the Emmy Award-winning series of the same name from your childhood, and will launch on Disney XD in 2017. The show will be produced by Disney Television Animation, and the new series will again star Disney’s popular characters: Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck.
In the show viewers will once again follow Scrooge McDuck and his family on adventures, but they aren’t the only stars returning from yesteryear. Also returning to the show 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.
The original “DuckTales” led the daily syndicated cartoon block “The Disney Afternoon” with 100 episodes produced by Disney Television Animation from 1987-90. An animated theatrical film, “DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp,” premiered in 1990. If you miss the original series, it is currently available on WATCH Disney Channel. Disney XD released the first trailer for the reboot below.
“DuckTales” is set to premiere this summer on Disney XD, and it is being voiced by an all-star cast of actors. The series stars former “Doctor Who” star David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; “Community” star Danny Pudi, “Parks and Rec” star Ben Schwartz and “SNL” star Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively. Joining them are “Big Bang Theory” star Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; “SNL” star Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and “Castle” star Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
Fans can look forward to following the epic family of ducks on their high-flying adventures around the world in the summer of 2017.
