DuckTales Revival Gets Summer Premiere Date on Disney XD — Watch New Opening Title Sequence

Disney XD is making a pitstop in Duckburg — known for its gorgeous summer weather, in addition to its curious distribution of wealth — before relocating full-time in the fall.

The network on Wednesday announced that its highly anticipated DuckTales revival will debut as a one-hour TV movie, appropriately titled DuckTales: Woo-oo!, which will air for 24 hours straight — that’s a total of 24 airings for my fellow math strugglers out there — beginning Saturday, Aug. 12 at midnight ET.

The series, already renewed for a second season, will then make its formal premiere on Saturday, Sept. 23 with two new episodes airing throughout the day, beginning at 7 am.

DuckTales stars the voices of David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (Community) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Louie, Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (SNL) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley and Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.

Throughout the season, you can also expect to hear from Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) as Gizmoduck, Allison Janney (Mom) as Goldie O’Gilt, Margo Martindale (The Americans) as Ma Beagle and Jim Rash (Community) as Gyro Gearloose, among many others.

    I hope that robot isn’t Gizmoduck redesign. It looks like an early Dr Who villain.

    Who’s singing the theme? Better not be one of those stupid bubblegum pop singers that Disney likes to manufacture.

    Might solve a mystery or rewrite history. Ducktales. That was my favorite animated series.

    The theme song is just noise now.

    cannot wait i take it that donald duck has a bigger role in it though cus in the original he was in the navy and he shipped the nephews of to scrooge so looks like he sticking around going on adventures with them instead

    The original Ducktales theme song is the song that ends up getting stuck in my head more often than not. I don’t want to be a bitter old person but… stop the falsettos.

    Holy Cast Batman. Can’t wait!!!

  8. Nicole says:

    What the heck did they do to the animation!!! Maybe I love the original to much… because I HATED this.

  9. iHeart says:

    hmmm no Magica DeSpell, what a bummer

  10. the song would be better if you could actually hear the singer instead of here being almost completely drowned out by the band

    i still stand by original opinion they should’ve let the cast sing it
    because thoroughly enjoyed the video they did

    Really hoping the Dutch dub will use Bob van der Houven again for Huey/Dewey/Louie

    I liked it. Singer was decent enough, and the titles themselves were pretty imaginative. Nice to see they still haven’t fixed the awkward timing of “Tales of derring-do, bad & good luck tales.” On the other hand, I kind of wish they’d fixed the awkward timing of it LOL

    I hope this is truer to Carl Barks’s brilliance, but I’m not holding out much hope.
