He’s made his name being tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties, and now we get our first look at the new DuckTales.

The series stars David Tennant 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, and will follow the epic family of ducks on their high-flying adventures around the world.

My first reaction is I’m still not convinced the new art style used here (and on other properties) looks “Disney” to me. Perhaps that is intentional. My second reaction is I can get behind the adventure part of the show, and overall, I’m really excited to introduce my kids to DuckTales! WOO-HOO!

Unfortunately, we still have to wait until “the summer” for the show to premiere on Disney XD. When it does debut, it will be 30 years after the original, which debuted in September 1987.

  1. David Tennant really nailed it as Scrooge McDuck. Can’t wait for this. Now if only they would reboot Darkwing Duck. I’ve been craving more since Boom studios stopped printing the comic version a while back.
