Nostalgia alert: DuckTales is back! UPDATE: watch the new cast sing the theme song
We might not be the target audience for Disney’s new DuckTales revival, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have opinions about it. After all, we’re the ones who grew up watching the animated adventures of Huey, Louie, Dewey, and Scrooge McDuck on television.
Fortunately, the DuckTales revival actually seems to be shaping up quite promisingly. The art released so far indicates that Disney has maintained the same general feel of the classic DuckTales episodes, while also tweaking it just enough to make it look fresh and modern. Today’s new image offers our first look at the new version of Launchpad McQuack, who, yeah, still looks more or less like you remember him. And a brief new teaser calls back to that old DuckTales theme song we know so well. So, when exactly will we get to see this new DuckTales? Disney has new details on that, too. Click through for all things DuckTales.
Entertainment Weekly shared the new DuckTales image featuring Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Louie, Dewey, Donald, Webby, and Launchpad McQuack.
There’s also this teaser. It’s not much more than a title treatment, but it works as an excuse to remind you of just how damn catchy that old theme song was.
UPDATE: Watch David Tennant and the new ‘DuckTales’ cast sing the theme song
The cast of Disney’s upcoming “DuckTales” reboot has been announced.
David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Beck Bennett, Toks Olagundoye and Kate Micucci were assembled for a video reveal with the stars of the new series singing the fan-favorite “DuckTales” theme song.
Tennant (“Doctor Who,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”) will voice Scrooge McDuck, the super-wealthy, rough and gruff businessduck and adventurer (who speaks with a Scottish accent) whose hobbies include taking a swim in his vault of money.
Scrooge’s mischievous triplet grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie will be voiced by Pudi (“Community”), Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation,” “House of Lies”) and Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live,” “We Bare Bears”), respectively.
