Disney XD Plans to Reboot ‘DuckTales’ for 2017 (WOO-OO!)
Disney is hoping to recreate television magic (or profit off nostalgia) by rebooting the classic cartoon DuckTales, which ran on their network from 1987 to 1990.
The series — which has a planned launch of 2017 — will air on Disney XD and feature the adventures of gold-swimming Scrooge McDuck, and his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie.
Scrooge’s nephew Donald Duck is also set to appear. We assume they will solve mysteries and rewrite history.
Other returning characters will include Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack.
“Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation,” promised Marc Buhaj, SVP, Programming and General Manager of Disney XD.
