If you’re a grown adult and weren’t interested in the DuckTales reboot, Disney might have just won you over with their voice cast. Doctor Who’s David Tennant is leading the feathered fun as Scrooge McDuck, and that’s just the tip of the Duckberg.
The original classic ran for four seasons from 1987-1990, and I would not be surprised if it was a favorite of some of the cast growing up. The video reveals Saturday Night Live’s Bobby Moynihan is voicing Louie, Parks & Recreation’s Ben Schwartz is Dewey, and Community’s Danny Pudi is Huey! But wait, there’s more! Kate Micucci (soon to be seen on NBC’s Powerless) will be playing Webby, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) is Mrs. Beakley, and Beck Bennett (SNL) is Launchpad McQuack. This video also hopefully puts to rest any worries that they’d be changing the perfect theme song.
Way back in February we found out Disney XD was going to be the home of a rebooted animated DuckTales series. A month later we saw our first art which was called “decidedly traditional, borrowing from the streamlined graphic style of the insanely popular Mickey Mouse short series.” And not too long ago we found out it would start airing in Summer of 2017.
I must admit, getting the Scottish Tennant to play Scottish Scrooge McDuck is beyond perfect casting. And this isn’t the first time the actor has voiced an animated character. He’s actually done it quite a bit but famously guest-starred on Star Wars: The Clone Wars as droid Huyang. Schwartz also lives in the Star Wars universe as the “voice” of BB-8.
What do you make of the cast?
