Speaking as one who spent way too many hours of college holed up in my dorm’s TV lounge watching DuckTales, I couldn’t have been happier when I heard that Disney was reviving the show for a 2017 premiere on DisneyXD. Today we have our first look at an image from the new show.
I love the image. It’s very reminiscent of some of Carl Banks best comic books from the Duck universe while also fitting comfortably in the style of the new Mickey Mouse shorts. Most of the favorites are back including: Scrooge McDuck; his grandnephews Huey, Louie, and Dewey; Webby Vanderquack, and Donald Duck.
Absent from this image are Daisy Duck, Scrooge’s pilot Launchpad McQuack, his butler Duckworth, inventor Gyro Gearloose, and the nanny Mrs. Beakley. But there’s a good chance some, if not all of them, will be back at some point. Including the bad guy BeagleBoys.
And yes, the reboot of DuckTakes gives hopes to all our dreams of reboots for other Disney series.
Are you excited for a return to Duckburg and to have DuckTales back on TV after all these years? I’m humming the theme song right now.
