‘DuckTales’ Rewrites History in First Disney XD Reboot Clips
Now that we know the prolific cast behind Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot, it’s time to put them to work. Solve some mysteries and rewrite history with our first clips from the new reboot, complete with Huey, Dewey, Louie, Donald and Uncle Scrooge.
Disney XD released three new clips from the August premiere, showing off the engineering smarts of Huey, Donald Duck’s birthday, and some of Uncle Scrooge’s more dangerous artifacts. It’s also our best taste of David Tennant’s Scrooge McDuck accent, sounding pitch-perfect as ever.
Already renewed for Season 2, the new Disney XD DuckTales features among its cast Jessica Jones star and Doctor Who favorite David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, along with SNL alum Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Danny Pudi as Huey, Kate Micucci as Webby, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and others including Lin-Manuel Miranda as GizmoDuck and Margo Martindale as Ma Beagle.
Eyed for an August premiere, the first season will also consist of twenty-one half-hour episodes and two hourlong specials, with Matt Youngberg serving as executive producer beside story editor/co-producer Francisco Angones, and Gravity Falls art director Sean Jimenez.
Disney XD should hopefully have a more specific DuckTales premiere soon, but watch the trailer below and stay tuned.
