Nostalgic First Look At Disney’s New ‘DuckTales’

Nostalgic First Look At Disney’s New ‘DuckTales’


The first look at the new ‘DuckTales’ Disney XD series will make old fans scream “Woo-oo!” with nostalgia.

Note from the Editor: I know that animation is usually in Eric’s wheelhouse, but I LOVED ‘DuckTales’ growing up… so I can talk animation too Dag Nabbit! 🙂



Last year the interwebs caught wind that ‘DuckTales,’ the iconic and Emmy Award-winning disney animated series, was getting revived with a reboot headed for Disney XD. Fast forward to a year later and we, the adulated generation of the 80’s and early 90’s, finally get a very nostalgic first look at the ‘DuckTales’ of new, with a very familiar look and tone to the ‘DuckTales’ of yesteryear. While it is still too soon to say if the reboot on Disney XD will rival the charming appeal of its predecessor, the picture shows a definite respect for the past series with a lively sense of adventure. With it’s 2017 premiere lingering in the not-too-distant horizon, this first image speaks a thousand words, and they are all saying very good things.

According to Disney Blogs, The rebooted ‘DuckTales’ Disney XD Series will feature the same usual suspects with the indomitably greedy Scrooge McDuck, the mischievous grandnephew trio Huey, Duey, and Louie and of course the most timeless mallard in all of Disney-dom, Donald Duck. Judging by the freshly released image, the series will carry on the mantle of the previous run with a gaggle (get it…) of outlandish mis-adventures and, hopefully, a lot of scenes with Scrooge McDuck swan-diving into his golden pools of decadence. The one mention that’s particularly important to me is the return of my personal favorite character from the previous run, the alouf aviator with pizazz,  Launchpad McQuack.

Again, while it’s hard to say just what the new ‘DuckTales’ will turn out to be, the first image and tremendous success of the ‘Mickey Mouse’ series, which seems to be the origin of the updated style of animation, gives me a fair amount of confidence that this is another property Disney wants to get right.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.

I suggest that they get Dan Castellaneta (Groundskeeper Willie) to voice Uncle Scrooge assuming they don’t bring back Alan Young.
