Disney XD’s upcoming DuckTales reboot has a brand new theme song and a premiere date. The series will premiere in a one-hour television movie which will be shown for 24 consecutive hours starting Saturday, August 12 (beginning at midnight EDT/PDT), on Disney XD. The series will then debut with two new episodes on Saturday, September 23. Here’s the awesome new theme song.
Disney XD’s new DuckTales series has an impressive all-star cast voicing new versions of classic characters.
Tony Anselmo, Disney’s official voice of Donald Duck since 1985, will reprise the classic role in the reboot. EW, in an exclusive first look at the new characters, reports that Donald will show up more in this version than he did in the old series.
Paul F. Tomkins plays Gladstone Gander, the shared nemesis of Donald and Uncle Scrooge.
Allison Janney (The West Wing) will voice Scrooge’s longtime fellow adventurer Goldie O’Gilt. The character has been given a welcome adventurous makeover for the new series.
Flintheart Golmgold (Keith Ferguson) is returning as Scrooge’s billionaire peers, and he’s even more Scottish than before.
Silicon Valley star Josh Brener voices Mark Beaks. He’s a brand new character — a “new money” peer of Uncle Scrooge who accumulated his wealth in the tech sector.
As previously announced, Scottish star David Tennant, best known for his portrayal of the Tenth Doctor in Doctor Who voices Scrooge McDuck.
Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) are the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively.
The show boasts behind-the-scenes talent with equally legit pedigrees: Annie Award nominee Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) is executive producer. The story editor and co-producer is Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) and the art director is Sean Jimenez from Gravity Falls.
Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, 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.
