Disney XD is rebooting the 80s classic cartoon "DuckTales" later this year, and even though it hasn't aired yet the network has already renewed the series for a second season. Before the show premieres this summer, a "first look" trailer was released on YouTube that takes us back to Duckberg to rewrite history. (Did you see what we did there?)
The first thing you'll notice right off the bat is the different animation style being used. The jokes have gotten an upgrade too with the humor being aimed at children and adults too.
The cast includes David Tennant (Dr. Who) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Beck Bennet (also from Saturday Night Live) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory) joining the cast as Webby Vanderquack.
Right now, Disney XD has only said they're releasing the show "this summer," but as we said, that hasn't stopped them from already ordering a second season which we should expect sometime in 2018. In a statement released with the trailer, Disney XD said:
"A first look at the all-new family comedy-adventure series DuckTales premiering this summer on Disney XD. The series stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and will follow the epic family of ducks on their high-flying adventures around the world."
