First Look at Disney’s ‘DuckTales’ Reboot


Disney has debuted the first art from its upcoming animated revival of “DuckTales.”

The image, released by D23, features Uncle Scrooge, Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey, Louiem and, of course, Webbigail “Webby” Vanderquack.

Announced in February 2015, the new “DuckTales” is set to premiere next year on Disney XD.

The original series aired from 1987 to 1990 on weekday afternoons, and inspired the 1990 theatrical release “DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.”

In addition to the characters featured in the above image, the new “DuckTales” will also feature such familiar characters as Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle) and Mrs. Beakley.

    Louiem was always my favorite.

  • Dominic Scalantti

    Yup looks like DuckTales :)

  • Pessoa

    Looks like the Disney comics I read as a child. I love it!

  • Rod G.

    YES! x 1000

  • ambaryerno

    Still waiting on the return of Darkwing Duck.

  • Sebastian Sandberg

    What, no Gizmoduck? Fingers crossed they’re saving him for any eventual Darkwing revival…

  • GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

    I’m LOCKED IN. {{^_^}}

  • Derek Metaltron

    A reboot which actually looks faithful and with just one logical addition of a young female character?! Say whatttttttttttttttttttttttttt? Also can we have the Caveman Duck Boy? (I forget his name but 4 year old me loved him.)

  • Jason Rye

    Needs more Fenton Crackshell and Drake Mallard.

    Webby was in the original Ducktails, though I guess you can say that the original was kind of a faithful reboot with the logical addition of a young female character.

    Also, no Bubba. Never Bubba.

  • Derek Metaltron

    Ah, I did wonder if she was in the original, maybe she wasn’t as iconic as I remember. And Bubba, that was it! Awww, little me liked that guy! (I recall the episode he got super smart when they were in a temple solving puzzles for some reason. Also the one where they basically did Honey I Shrunk the Kids sticks out to me.)

  • Brian Langlois

    The only appropriate response is “Woooh Ooooh!”
    Loosk great!

  • Mike Vukovich

    accually is dolan

  • demoncat_4

    wonder if it will also include gizmo duck too.

  • demoncat_4

    plus unmentioed from the list gladstone gander the duck with the luck

  • Viroro

    Any character could be cool if written properly. Bubba wasn’t.

  • Viroro

    I demand Launchpad at least mentions his time in St. Canard, if they can’t have Darkwing Duck drop by for at least one episode. Though I’m kinda worried about Donald’s inclusion… Launchpad and Fenton both somewhat filled his comics role, so I’m afraid they risk to sound superflous if Donald is here, unless they work on expanding their unique sides (which will probably easier for Launchpad than it is for Fenton, unless he goes full time Gizmo Duck on us). In any case, looking forward for this.

    Looks like new Duck Tales, yep, I’ll watch.

  • Willie Okendo

    The comic book style animation looks pretty good, hopefully this show will be a good reboot.

  • Justin McGill

    what addition??? Webbigail was in the original.. she may not have been there from the very beginning.. but she was part of the original series.

  • Jon Shanks

    That was my immediate thought too. Gizmoduck ruled!

  • Skittlebrau

    Gyro Gearloose = Gizmoduck

  • BigAl_81

    And don’t forget Doofus!

    I just hope they don’t fvck this up by watering it down completely – one of the great things about DuckTales the 1st time round was how dark and portentuous several episodes were, which I sadly fear won’t fly at all these days.

  • Michael Alden

    Oh I loved the Ducktales, Darkwing Duck next please!

  • Michael Alden

    It looks as though they gave her a new hair-do, I was also wondering who that was at first. Looks as though the triplets may also have different hair-dos, although it could just be the wind in the drawing giving the two that look.
