    "This is Not a Drill: We’re Getting New DuckTales in 2017!

    This news is too good to bury, so we’re coming right out with it: An all-new DuckTales series is coming to Disney XD in 2017! The Emmy Award-winning series from the late ‘80s/early ‘90s is absolutely treasured by our generation, and we are so excited that “every day they’re out there making DuckTales” again. When Marc Buhaj—Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD—made the announcement, he said, “DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, it drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks’ comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”

    The new series will star the same beloved characters as the old: Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Launchpad McQuack, Donald Duck, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell, Poe, Ma Beagle, the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack."

    With this, can Darkwing Duck be far behind? :mrk:

    Love how DD was a fine parody of comic book conventions during a time when there were very few comic book movies. Now, there are so many ripe, oozing targets out there, DD is sorely missed.

    I suspect the cult following DuckTales Remastered got kinda sparked this thing. The Transylvania level music being done dubstep was a stroke of genius.

    Ditto. Though, if they could "modernize" it like the new TMNT theme while honoring the original at the same time, I'd be fine with that.

    You know it'd have a little of that current pop vibe to it. The original singer is still around though.

    I watched the movie again for the first time in I don't know how long a few months ago and this is some interesting news, depending on how they are going forth. Original art style? Modernized world? Who will be voice acting, etc.

    Most of the original cast is still intact, but June Foray and Alan Young are pushing 96 each. I would say get an actual Scottish actor for Scrooge but part of the charm is that the accent is so hyper exaggerated.

    That's actually what I was thinking too. I was thinking of TaleSpin, and the fact that the setting of the show was deliberately one of a technology level similar to a dieselpunkish 1940s, which played a huge role in how the stories played out.

    I wonder if the "boys own" kind of adventures of Duck Tales would be even possible if set in today's world, where we have advanced computers, GPS, drones, smartphones, etc., or whether they would have to deliberately place it in like an animal version of the 1940s, 1950s or 1970s.

    I loved Ducktales, but I'm more hopeful that this may lead to a revival of other franchises like Darkwing Duck.

    No crashing airplanes, that's too scary. No dangerous wild animals too. No gangs, you can't have that either. Also, no diving into pools of gold coins, you're promoting 1% capitalism there. No witches, that's occult. No Bubba Duck, that's taking a stand on evolution.

    I'll grant you the gold coins one, that could actually cause a fatality.
