As we learned earlier this year, Disney XD is rebooting the classic animated series DuckTales, and at D23 this weekend we go an exclusive clip of the highly anticipated show.
The clip is from “Daytrip of Doom!” where Huey, Dewey, and Louie and Webby have an epic dart gun fight that ends up a little more intense than some of them are comfortable with.
Not bad, huh? I love that the animation style is inspired by the classic Carl Barks’ comic designs; but, it will have to take some getting used to the new voices. David Tennant stars as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi as Huey, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley and Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.
DuckTales will premiere with an hourlong television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours beginning at midnight Saturday, August 12 on Disney XD. The series then will debut with two new episodes Saturday, September 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m., EDT/PDT). Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates. The September series premiere coincides with the 30th anniversary of the original Emmy-winning series.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, Disney XD’s animated comedy-adventure series “DuckTales” chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.”
