Breaking News From Duckburg! DuckTales Returning To TV!
Scrooge McDuck is coming back to television!
Disney XD has ordered a new set of adventures based on the classic cartoon series, DuckTales that aired from 1987-1990 and during the famous Disney Afternoon block.
“DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, 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.” said Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming, and General Manager, Disney XD.
The reboot will keep the same concept as the original series with the audience following Scrooge McDuck along with his nephews Huey, Dewey & Louie, and the crazy but lovable Donald Duck as they explore new places, get in trouble, and watch Uncle Scrooge swim around in big piles of money… at least I’m hoping for that last part.
Other characters from the original series will appear as well like Duckworth, Launchpad McQuack, the Beagle Boys, Webbigail Vaderquack and more!
This is such a great announcement for fans of the cartoon series. Back in 2013 the DuckTales video games which was originally released for Nintendo in 1989 got a remastered version and is available on the PS3, XBOX 360, and Wii U.
