New DuckTales animated series coming to Disney XD in 2017

While I'm a big fan of the comics, I don't know the show as well as I should. I also haven't gotten around to playing the 360 remastered game.

New DuckTales Animated Series Coming to Disney XD
By Max Nicholson

Ready to solve a mystery and rewrite history? A brand new DuckTales animated series has been ordered for launch in 2017 on Disney XD. Disney Animation Television will produce the new show, based on the beloved original series that amassed 100 episodes running from 1987 to 1990.

"DuckTales has a special place in Disney's TV animation history," said Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD. "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."

Currently, the reboot is set to feature Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck -- plus, a ton of other fan-favorite characters: Launchpad McQuack, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell and Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack.

Of course, 2017 is a ways off, so in the meantime Disney has the original DuckTales available to stream on the WATCH Disney Channel app.

Fucking awesome!!! I'm stoked but I just hoped it isn't totally dumbed down like a lot of modern cartoons aimed at kids. The original series actually holds up pretty well if you ask me. Hopefully this also will lead to Disney finally releasing the fourth (and final) volume of the original series on DVD to complete the set.

One of my favourite Disney afternoon cartoons along with Darkwing Duck. Now if only Disney will release the rest of the original series, it would be great.

DUCKBURG (February 25, 2015) -- An all-new "DuckTales," an animated comedy series based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, has been ordered for launch in 2017 on Disney XD channels around the world. Set to be produced by Disney Television Animation, the new series will again star Disney's enduringly popular characters: Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck.

Saw this blurb pop up this morning. Loved this show when I was kid, and it's nice to see Disney giving it a chance for a whole new generation to discover.

I'll accept CG, but I'm hoping for hand-drawn animation. This is great news!

Like most, I have fond memories of the original and watching it after school. Hoping this will be decent

By far my favorite show from my childhood. Excellent news; I just wish it was coming out sooner.

I wonder if Alan Young will voice Scrooge? Dude is 95, but still did him in the remastered DuckTales game.

It'd be nice if the second game was remastered as well. The first one was a lot of fun to replay with updated graphics and whatnot.

He still basically sounded the same too. It'd be cool if the original voice cast was in the new series but I wouldn't be suprised if they aren't. With the age of Alan Young he could pass any time really so they may not want to use him for a long term series.

Yeah, and we're talking two years down the road just to get started.

I loved the Gladstone (?) comics but didn't really watch the show until I was about 40. Loved it too.

Awesome! DT is probably my favorite cartoon. Grew up watching it in the afternoons and got the DVDs to watch with my kiddos.

I wonder who will voice Scrooge. At 95, I doubt Alan Young is up to the task, even though he did an amazing job on the video game remake.

Re: New DuckTales animated series coming to Disney XD in 2017

I love Ducktales but I refuse to get my hopes up. I'll remain cautiously optimistic until I see a few episodes.

I dunno. I'm ok with the CG on, say, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the kids, but I don't think I could watch DuckTales like that.

Yeah honestly I'm tired of CG animation. Hopefully the new series is done in the more traditional fashion.

Gladstone is the gander, Gemstone is the comic publisher. I agree that the property went downhill once Boom acquired it. The $6.95 volumes with three main stories were a great takealong size.

Gladstone published the Disney books before Gemstone (and then Gemstone reprinted a bunch).

Now IDW is publishing new Disney stuff, and Fantagraphics is doing an excellent job collecting the classic stuff in hardcovers. Which is odd to me, considering Disney owns a comic book company now.

Re: New DuckTales animated series coming to Disney XD in 2017

I know it's a pipe dream but I wish someone would be inspired by Tuomas Holopainen's solo album Music Inspired by the Life and Times of Scrooge to make a hand drawn, feature length animated movie adaptation of the comic book The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck written and illustrated by Don Rosa.

^I'd love that. One of my favorite albums from last year.

I'd much prefer 2D, but I'd take CG in this style which has an old school 2D feel to it:

Alan Young recently voice Scrooge on a Mickey Mouse cartoon, "Goofy's First Love".

DUCK TALES was an enjoyable series to watch in the late 80's.

The comic book stories by Carl Barks, Don Rosa, and William Van Horne were awesome.
Classics!!!

Yeah, you're right. I didn't collect during the Gladstone era, just Gemstone, so that's the one that sticks in my mind.

I have a number of the Fantagraphics volumes but I don't think I've seen any of the new IDW stuff. I'll have to look out for it.

I believe the IDW stuff is coming out in April:

They're also doing an artist's edition of Don Rosa's Life and Times of Scrooge Mcduck.
