As a child of the ’90s, I fondly remember watching Disney cartoons from Tale Spin and Rescue Rangers to Darkwing Duck. But I imagine there isn’t as big a classic as DuckTales. The series has now been rebooted, since that is the norm nowadays, and it has managed to assemble quite a cast of comedians. From Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan, who will voice Huey, Dewey, and Louie respectively, to David Tennant who will voice Scrooge McDuck. Other talents include Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and Kate Micucci as Webby.
We previously saw the cast sing the classic theme song, but there wasn’t much else. Now a new trailer has popped up online giving us our first look at the upcoming revival. Check it out below.
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.
Disney has released the teaseriest kind of teaser for DuckTales, a reboot of the classic animated series which originally aired from 1987 to 1990.
The teaser doesn’t show a whole lot, but does feature a bit of a familiar tune, which might be enough to make watching it worth it. The video also shares a release window for the show, so fans can mark off on their calendars when to expect its arrival.
You really couldn’t grow up in the eighties or nineties without having come across Disney’s hit animated series DuckTales. You sang along with the opening song, you wished you could dive into a large money pit — only to realize that something like that would really hurt when you got older — and dreamed of going on all sorts of adventures that took you into space, back in time, or to the deepest of oceans. In fact, we can still relive those moments via WATCH Disney Channel, an app that allows consumers to watch on tablet, phones, computer, and set top boxes.
Now comes word that Scrooge, and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, as well as Donald Duck, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, will all be re-appearing in a newly announced reboot of the series which will appear on Disney XD. Hit the jump for more.

Don’t mind me if you hear me singing the theme song in the background as you read…
