Premiere Date, Poster, And Theme Revealed For New Ducktales Series
If there was anything that I was looking forward to in the year 2017, the new Ducktales series was definitely one of them. In the addition to the big name voice cast that we’ve been receiving lately, in the last couple days we have gotten a premiere date, a new title sequence, a poster, and an updated version of the theme song (which, personally, I think they should have used). The new Ducktales series will still be following the adventures of Scrooge McDuck, nephew Donald, grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, niece-by-affection Webby, and a whole bunch of heroic and villainous side-ducks.
The series will premiere with a one-hour TV movie titled Woo-oo!, on Saturday, Aug. 12, which will air 24 times straight, beginning at midnight. A month later, the show will officially get started with two new episodes debuting Sept. 23 on Disney XD, VOD, and the network’s app.
Disney has also announced an avatar creation app launching in July, an Angry Birds cameo featuring Donald Duck in August, and a slew of comic and book titles rolling out from July to well into 2018.
The voice cast of DuckTales features David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci, Beck Bennett, Toks Olagundoye, Tony Anselmo, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Allison Janney, Margo Martindale, Paul F. Tompkins, Kimiko Glenn, Jim Rash, Josh Brener, Keith Ferguson, Eric Bauza, and Corey Burton. The new theme song was recorded by Felicia Barton and written by Mark C. Mueller.
