DuckTales (Woo-hoo!) is coming back to the world in a big way. A prequel coming already started the fun, and now, the series itself will return on Disney XD August 12th. This i s a complete reboot of the original classic series, and will feature an all-new cast, including legendary actor David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck.
Now, to start of the fun in a way only the DuckTales show can do, on the premiere day, the show will kick off with two episodes put back to back…and then played every hour all day long. Woo-hoo!
“The movie is really a two-part kick-off series premiere,” DuckTales executive producer Matt Youngberg told ComicBookResources, “That’s where we have the introduction on what’s happening with the family. There’s been a history. There’s been a reason that Donald and Scrooge don’t talk to each other. And we come into it with the boys experiencing their first adventure with Scrooge McDuck. We wanted to be able to kick off the series with how everything comes together, so as the series goes on, that’s been established as to how they’re just out on their adventures.”
This series has all the makings of greatness that the original did, and we can’t wait for it to return. Only a few days away!
