DuckTales Revival (Already) Renewed for Season 2 — Watch the First Trailer

It looks like the years have been very good to Donald Duck and his extended flock.

Disney XD on Thursday released the first official trailer for its upcoming DuckTales revival, revealing updated versions of the adventurous birds that ruled the afternoon-TV roost from 1987 to 1990.

Along with the gang’s slick new look, you’ll also likely notice a change in some of their voices — Donald’s nephews, for example, no longer sound like they swallowed bicycle horns — but fear not, all of the original series’ feathers bones are still there.

The revival’s voice cast includes David Tennant (Jessica Jones) as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Beck Bennett (SNL) as Launchpad McQuack; Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley; and Kate Micucci (The Big Bang Theory) as Webby Vanderquack.

Though an exact premiere date has yet to be announced — right now, we’re looking at sometime this summer — Disney XD has already renewed the series for a second season.

    I’ve always felt that the people who say this are histrionic losers, but… “STOP RUINING MY CHILDHOOD!!!!!!!”

    Sounds like Tony Anselmo has job security. He’s still quacking for Donald.

    Okay so… I love Duck Tales and never wanted it to be remade, but that looked pretty awesome. I can totally see myself making my nieces watch it while I babysit… or you know DVRing it and watching whenever I want. But let’s just say I have it for my nieces.

    This actually look really cool. I wasn’t completely sold on the reboot, but the trailer looks really good. Brings back memories. Hopefully it’s better than the Powerpuff girls reboot.

    Was a huge fan of the original series. & love the teaser bits towards the end of the trailer.
    But the the ‘whiney’ attitudes & the cube-shaped heads of the nephews really put me off.
    Don’t ‘f’ this up Disney!

    That dialogue sounds dreadful. And I don’t mean the voice actors they chose.
