Recently we saw a teaser for the new DuckTales coming to Disney XD in 2017, but it didn’t show much.
While we await a full trailer, eager fans will be excited to watch a recently released video. The video features the cast of the new DuckTales, including the new voice of Scrooge McDuck David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), singing the classic theme song. Tennant is joined by Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live, Inside Out), who voices Louie; Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, House of Lies), who plays Dewey; Danny Pudi (Community, Knights of Badassdom), who will be Huey; Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates, Raising Hope), set to voice Webby Vanderquack; Toks Olagundoye (Castle, The Neighbors), who voices Mrs. Beakley; and Beck Bennett (SNL, Sing), as the new Launchpad McQuack.
You can watch the cast sing the classic theme song below.
The first season of the new DuckTales will run for 21 half-hour episodes, plus two hour-long special episodes. It’s currently scheduled for a premiere in the summer of 2017.
The show is executive produced by Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse). Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) is a co-producer and story editor. Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls) is the show’s art director.
Other characters fans can expect to see include Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Magica De Spell, and last but certainly not least, Donald Duck, who will be voiced by Tony Anselmo. Donald has been voiced by Anselmo since 1986.
Top-billed actors will bring the beloved characters of McDuck Manor to life in the all-new animated comedy series “DuckTales,” premiering in summer 2017 on Disney XD channels around the world.
Leading the quack pack on globe-trotting adventures are: David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of mischief-making Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack.
