DuckTales (2017)

The Disney Afternoon is slowly on the rise again

Quote:
Disney XD will be returning to Duckburg in 2017 with a revival of “DuckTales,” the beloved animated adventure starring Uncle Scrooge and his three grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie.

The original series aired from 1987 to 1990 as part of the “Disney Afternoon” syndicated programming block, and inspired the 1990 theatrical release “DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.”

“‘DuckTales’ has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history,” Marc Buhaj Disney XD’s senior vice president, programming and general manager said in a statement. “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.”

In addition to Scrooge, Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald, 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), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail “Webby” Vanderquack.

Literally the only thing I remember about DuckTales was loving the theme song.

Yes. Future generations need to be blessed (cursed?) with remembering the theme song for the rest of their lives.

This is what Disney should have been doing all this time instead of whoring out teen pop stars

If there's one thing that would never, EEEEEEEEEEEVER work as "grimdark", it's Ducktales.

I still vaguely remember the original series, so my hopes for this one not sucking are high.

Grimdark Ducktales. Scrooge is made homeless after the 2008 market crash ruined his empire, sending him into severe debt. In order to get by he sells his lucky coin to one of his mortal enemies, who use it to take over the world.

Cue dystopian future where the 3 nephews fight robots and evil demons summed by the witch character to avenge the death of both Scrooge and Donald, who were assassinated during riots caused by the company's collapse. Add in some extra sex and gore and that's about as grimdark as that MMPR spoof that the internet is drooling over.

I'm excited but cautious. If this leads to a return to Darkwing Duck as well, then there is justice in this world.

Sounds like Donald is going to be featured more prominently than his recurring guest status from the original series.

And if this does well, could a revival of Darkwing Duck be far behind? And where's Gizmoduck? Blabberin' Blatherskites!

Now this is interesting. Rebooting a classic Disney series? We'll have to wait and see how this turns out.

Who knows? If all goes well, maybe we'll see a Rescue Rangers reboot too.

Huey was never the same after Webby was killed in a botched drug bust. Dewey is also working as an informant for the beagle boys
