DuckTales Reboot Coming To Disney XD
On 26 February 2015
Disney XD will be returning to Duckburg in 2017 with a “DuckTales” reboot, the beloved animated adventure starring Uncle Scrooge and his three grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie.
The announcement was made Wednesday, February 25,Marc Buhaj, Disney XD's Senior Vice President of Programming and General Manager, told ABC News in a statement. "It drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks' comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."
In addition to Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald (yes, the show will also include appearances by Donald Duck), the new “DuckTales” will also feature such familiar characters as Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail “Webby” Vanderquack.
And if that wasn't enough for you your 1980s cartoon nostalgia, Netflix announced on Wednesday that it would pick up reboots of the animated series "Inspector Gadget" and "Danger Mouse," in addition to their announcement last fall that they would be releasing an all-new version of "Care Bears."
We hope Disney keeps the show's original theme song intact. And because 2017 it's a long wait we invite you to (re)view the DuckTales theme:
