David Tennant voicing Scrooge McDuck in DuckTales TV reboot

Posted December 17, 2016

The cast of Disney's upcoming "DuckTales" reboot has been announced.

To introduce the new voice cast, a video has been released showing the ensemble singing the show's memorable theme tune, which surely means we can expect that same song to play over the reboot's opening titles. I was already looking forward to this show, but it's just rocketed up to my most anticipated new animated show of 2017, and second most anticipated show after Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan provide the voices of mischief-making Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively, Beck Bennett is Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye is Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci is Webby Vanderquack. Hopefully they'll be given distinct personalities to go with their distinct actors.

Disney said Friday that David Tennant will be the voice of Scrooge McDuck, the wealthy great-uncle of Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Other beloved characters slated to appear are Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys.

Originally aired in 1987, "DuckTales" followed Scrooge and co on a slew of treasure-hunting adventures.

Last year, Senior VP Programming and General Manager of Disney XD, Marc Huhaj, remarked on the importance of the series. If that doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will.
