First look at DuckTales reboot released by Disney XD

in Artwork, Disney, Television

The first image of the all-new DuckTales series returning to TV screens in 2017 has finally been revealed by Disney XD.

Retaining the colorful, vibrant look of the old series (with an updated touch that recalls the recent Disney cartoons featuring Mickey Mouse and the gang) while eschewing modern CGI animation, the new DuckTales aims to faithfully restore all the fun the original series had for a new generation eager to see the latest adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie. From the looks of it, Donald Duck and Webbigail “Webby” Vanderquack might be along for the ride as well.

Back in February of last year, Disney XD announced they would be rebooting the popular show, which ran for four seasons between 1987 and 1990, and they have now released this first look as part of their Kids Upfront in which they are giving updates to their upcoming slate of upcoming projects.

Just how much bigger is Scrooge’s Money Bin since we last saw him? For that matter how much time, if any, has passed since the original adventures? Hopefully we’ll find out more details on the new series soon enough.

What do you think of the new look and will you be tuning in when the show premieres next year? Sound off on the comments below.

    And since when was Donald along for the ride (which he wasn’t even in the old Barks comics)?
    This looks a LOT more like X-D, than a generation that remembers what the mainstream Disney Afternoon actually looked like.

      My grandson loves to watch my son’s Duck Tales dvds, my son was a big fan back then. Donald Duck did make cameo appearances, throughout the series.

      Donald was in nearly all of Barks’ Uncle Scrooge stories, he’s definitely a huge part of the Duck Family dynamic, and I feel Ducktales big flaw being that Donald wasn’t a main character.

    I dont even watch DXD all that much honestly. I do on rare occasions. I never saw much of the Ducktales series having been born in 1985 and the show ran from 1985-1990. Back then you had to have a special Box from your cable company as I remember to watch it on Family Channel. I still remember getting the box from the cable company for awile to unscramble the channel when mom got it for awile and seeing re-runs. I LOVED the series when I saw it ! This new series looks very promising !!! I love the artwork for the first glimpse of the series, and now that Canada has Disney Channel and Disney XD I will most definitely be watching this !!!!!!!!!
