I will watch the sh*t out of this.
I didn’t really care a bout Disney rebooting 90s classic DuckTales at first. The idea of yet another reboot is just…. I don’t know, a bit overdone these days. However, after the cast announcement, I’ve finally decided- I will be watching the sh*t out of this show next year.
The Tenth Doctor himself David Tennant has been cast as our hero Scrooge McDuck. Finally, a Scottish man playing a Scottish character. Other than Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan are going to be Huey, Dewey and Louie respectively. Beck Bennett will be Launchpad, Toks Olagundoye will be Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci is Webby Vanderquack. It’s awesome that we’re getting so many comedy talents voicing the cast, and it’s especially great we are getting different actors for Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby. Back in the days, all four characters are voiced by one actress Russi Taylor.
You can check out the new cast performing the classic theme song here:
In addition, other characters such as Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duchworth, Gizmoduck, Beagle Boys, Magica DeSpell and more will all return as well!
DuckTales will return in summer 2017.
