This is Not a Drill: We’re Getting New DuckTales in 2017!

From our friends at “Oh My Disney”

DuckTales-1000x807This news is too good to bury, so we’re coming right out with it: An all-new DuckTales series is coming to Disney XD in 2017! The Emmy Award-winning series from the late ‘80s/early ‘90s is absolutely treasured by our generation, and we are so excited that “every day they’re out there making DuckTales” again. When Marc Buhaj—Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD—made the announcement, he said, “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.”

The new series will star the same beloved characters as the old: 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.

Our love for Scrooge McDuck and the rest of the gang has been well-documented via trips to art installations, poster collaborations with Mondo, and most recently a video we released last September:

 

To tide you over until 2017, the original DuckTales is currently available on the WATCH Disney Channel app. Let the countdown begin!
