If you need something to go “woo-oo” about today, meet the all-star cast of Disney’s hotly-anticipated DuckTales reboot, coming to Disney XD in summer 2017.
Not only is the new quack pack full of beloved actors, but Disney chose to announce their casting by having the thesps sing the original theme tune from the 1987 animated favorite, which ran until 1990, racking up 100 episodes and a spinoff movie in the process.
Leading the voice cast is Doctor Who and Jessica Jones star David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, with Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan lending their voices to the mischief-making Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively.
Moynihan’s Saturday Night Live castmate Beck Bennett will play Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye will voice Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci will tackle Webby Vanderquack.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be DuckTales without appearances from old favorites including Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys, all of whom will pop up in the reboot.
DuckTales is produced by Disney Television Animation. Annie Award nominee Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) is the executive producer. The story editor and co-producer is Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) and the art director is Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls).
If you’re feeling really nostalgic, here’s the original version of the theme song, which was composed by Mark Mueller:
