Disney XD Reveals ‘DuckTales’ Creative Team, Teaser Art


The crack creative team behind the highly anticipated new DuckTales series has been revealed — along with fresh teaser artwork — leading into this week’s Comic-Con International. The 2D animated show will launch on Disney XD in 2017 and follow the all-new adventures of Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck.

DuckTales will be executive produced by Annie Award nominee Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse). The story editor and co-producer is Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) and the art director is Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls). The show is being produced by Disney Television Animation.

The newly revealed artwork — created by the series art team lead by Youngberg and Jimenez — will grace the back of the DuckTales Cinestory Vol. 1 comic that will debut on the show floor at CCI on July 20. The comic is a collectible edition featuring a retelling of the first five original DuckTales episodes, and will be available nationwide September 27.

    So Ducktales will now looks like a ten year old Cartoon Net show?

      Does it make you feel big? Complaining about a show that was never made for you in the first place?

      • Joe Pearson

        ??? I made an educated statement based on the designs in the article. I took no editorial position as to wether that’s good or bad, so perhaps you’re over reacting a bit, Malcom? Does that make you feel big?

    I’m looking at the creative team behind it, I’m really hoping it makes up for the ending of Gravity Falls and Wander Over Yonder. Star’s getting some chuckles out of me but it could do so much more.

    “Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck.”

    Seems they’ve kept the style pretty well. Nice with a preview art teaser!

    Let’s pray it doesn’t end up like PPG since the original voice cast will be replaced in this reboot. I’ll be happy if this reboot is as successful as Voltron
