Donald Duck Embarks on New "DuckTales"


I remember racing home from school in the afternoons to catch the original "DuckTales" on afternoon syndicated television. Even as a teen in high school, I was drawn to the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his scrappy nephews as they went on adventures to distant lands. Disney is resurrecting the old show with a 2D facelift that has a retro-animated feel which just looks incredible. Disney XD provided a new teaser for the show that focuses on Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo). Check it out after the jump.


The new family comedy-adventure series will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, the temperamental Donald Duck and their trusty team, Webby Vanderquack, Launchpad McQuack and Mrs. Beakley, embark on high-flying adventures around the world. Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, the Disney Television Animation-produced series stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. Annie Award-nominee Matt Youngberg (“Ben 10: Omniverse”) serves as executive producer of “DuckTales,” with Francisco Angones (Disney XD’s Emmy Award-nominated “Wander Over Yonder”) as story editor and co-producer, and Sean Jimenez (Disney XD’s Annie Award-winning “Gravity Falls”) as art director.
