"DuckTales" Cast Gave The Theme Song A Reboot
STRAP ON IN! WE'RE ABOUT TO GO ON SOME MORE "DUCKTALES!" WOO HOO!
When it comes to '90s cartoon culture, the conversation does not properly begin until you've thoroughly discussed the societal impact of Scrooge McDuck taking a big saucy dive into his gold money pit.
It's one of the most iconic scenes in TV history, let alone in the animated universe.
It was also cool because he was a wealthy duck who talked and dove into a pool of money.
After a 27-year hiatus "Ducktales" is coming back to TV sometime in 2017 with new episodes and an insane new cast.
Try not to freak out too hard over this lineup:
David Tennant has signed on to play Scrooge McDuck.
Danny Pudi from "Community" will be voicing Huey.
Ben Schwartz from "Parks and Rec" and "House of Lies" will be playing Dewey.
"SNL's" Bobby Moynihan is going to be voicing Louie ,with fellow "SNL"-er Beck Bennett signed on to play Launchpad McQuack.
Nigerian actress and "Castle" star Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
Kate Micucci from "Garfunkle And Oats" rounds out the cast as Webby Vanderquack.
The show's reboot was announced last February through a statement by senior vice president of programming and the general manager of Disney XD, Marc Buhaj, who 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.
There isn't much more information out there about the show's launch. As it stands now, all we know is the cast, that it will air on DisneyXD and will probably be premiering sometime in the summer of 2017.
