DUCKTALES Promotional Video Announces Cast While Singing Theme Song
Time Lord. Marvel villain. Harry Potter villain. Now a filthy rich duck.
David Tennant rounds out the new cast for the new Disney XD series, DuckTales. The Scottish actor will voice Scrooge McDuck, the super-wealthy, rough and gruff businessduck, whose favorite hobby is swimming in his vault of money.
Joining him as his nephews are Danny Pudi (Community) as Huey (the red one), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Dewey (the blue one), and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Louie (the green one).
Moynihan’s fellow co-cast member from SNL, Beck Bennett, will voice pilot Launchpad McQuack, replacing Terry McGovern, who was not invited back for the reboot — like all the surviving original cast members. However, the rumor is that he will still play a part in the new series. Toks Olagundoye of Castle will voice the boys’ nanny Mrs. Beakley and Kate Micucci, the Oates of Garfunkel and Oates as Webby Vanderquack.
The cast was announced Friday through a new promotional video featuring the new cast singing the show’s theme song.
DuckTales ran from 1987 to 1990, which follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews as they search for treasures around the world and protect Scrooge’s fortune. Other character that will be seen include Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoducke, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys.
Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) will serve as executive producer. Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) will co-produce and serve as story editor. Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls) will be the art director.
DuckTales is set to premiere the summer of 2017.
