Disney has today announced that an all-new DuckTales series is currently in production, and is coming to Disney XD in 2017. For any 80s kid, like me, DuckTales brings fond memories of childhood, as the series aired from the late 80s to 90s and was an absolute favorite of mine and many of my friends.
According to Disney, the series will include the same iconic characters such as Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Launchpad McQuack, Donald Duck, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell, Poe, Ma Beagle, the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.
“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 of Disney XD.
For you youngsters that are unfamiliar with the original series, it can actually be viewed on the WATCH Disney Channel app.
