Disney XD has been killing it lately, and they're looking to compound on that success with the upcoming reboot of DuckTales.
The classic Disney cartoon followed Scrooge McDuck, as he went on adventures with his triplet nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Disney revealed last year that they were working on a reboot of the series, and they've just revealed the first trailer for the new show.
In addition to the new trailer, Disney announced that they've already renewed the series for a second season. The show hasn't even debuted yet, and it's already been ordered for more episodes.
Fans can take that as an extremely positive sign.
“Fans around the world are eager and we’re looking forward to introducing viewers to the all-new DuckTales,” said Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD. “This early season two order is a testament to the quality work the creative team, led by Matt [Youngberg] and Frank [Angones], and the cast are delivering.”
David Tennant stars 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.
DuckTales followed Donald Duck's rich tycoon uncle, Scrooge McDuck, on adventures and treasure hunts across the globe. Aiding Scrooge was dopey pilot Launchpad McQuack, and Donald's nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Webbigail Vanderquack, the daughter of Scrooge's maid, was added along the way and will be a series regular in the rebooted version. Based on teaser art (seen below), it seems likely Donald Duck will be a more significant presence in the new version of DuckTales than he was in the original.
DuckTales will premiere in the summer of 2017 on Disney XD.
