An all-new DuckTales animated comedy series has been ordered for launch in 2017 on Disney XD channels around the world.
The new Disney Television Animation series will again star Disney’s enduringly popular characters: Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck.
The original DuckTales, based on the classic comic-book tales written and drawn by Carl Barks, ran 100 episodes from 1987 to 1990 and spawned the 1990 animated feature film DuckTales: The Movie — Treasure of the Lost Lamp.
The new series’ adventures will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews — Huey, Dewey and Louie — and the optimistic yet temperamental Donald Duck embark on high-flying adventures worldwide.
Other beloved characters slated to be in the new stories are: 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.
The original DuckTales is available on WATCH Disney Channel, an app that allows consumers to watch on tablet, phones, computer and set top boxes.
