it’s been months since we’ve heard anything new about the upcoming DuckTales reboot. Disney must be in the holiday spirit – or at least are trying to give us a reason to look forward to 2017 – with the first teaser for the series.
DuckTales comes from some of the brightest animation-minded minds at Disney XD: Executive producer Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse), story editor/co-producer Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder), and art director Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls). Season 1 will consist of 21 half-hour episodes and two one-hour specials.
It’s a super short teaser that doesn’t give us much except for what sounds like Donald Duck, Scrooge’s money, and a hint of an updated theme song.
The teaser images include Scrooge, Donald, Huey, Dewy, and Louie, Webbigail, and Launchpad, so that gives us hope, but what of the villains? What about the amazing adventures? What about Gyro Gearloose?
While 2017 is shaping up to be a major cluster-fudge for the world, DuckTales may be that one thing to keep the universe together.
