While Scrooge McDuck is unquestionably the star of DuckTales, his three nephew's Huey, Louie, and Dewey play a big part in the series' popularity. That includes the Huey, and now he's giving away all kinds of spoilers for the upcoming reboot.
Well, at least the actor behind the voice is giving away spoilers. Huey is voiced by Powerless and Community actor Danny Pudi, and a new video has surfaced that reveals some undisclosed details about the upcoming show, which you can view above.
Unfortunately, it's all in duckspeak. Most didn't take a class in that particular language in college, so odds are you have no idea what he's saying. Granted, if you can break the code more power to you.
DuckTales has remained popular since it left the airwaves, where it ran from 1987 to 1990. Since then the series has made appearances in video games and one-off projects, like the Huey, Dewey, and Louie's involvement with the Kingdom Hearts series.
“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.”
The series is executive-produced by Matt Youngberg with Francisco Angones serving as co-producer/story editor. 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. Lin-Manuel Miranda will also star as Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera.
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. You can watch the new video above.
