Disney fans everywhere shouted a collective “Woo-oo!” when the all-new DuckTales was announced, and we’re all eagerly anticipating the series’ summer premiere on Disney XD.
But today, there’s even better news… What, you may ask, could be better than a full season of adventures featuring Scrooge McDuck; Huey, Dewey, and Louie; Webby Vanderquack; Launchpad McQuack; and Mrs. Beakley? Hang on to your top hats and sailor caps—Disney XD has just announced that they’ve already ordered a second season of Ducktales, making for twice the tales of derring-do, twice the bad- and good-luck tales, and twice the “Woo-oos!”
To make this the best duck blur of news ever, Disney XD also released a first look at the new series. Catch a glimpse of McDuck Manor, reacquaint yourself with the characters you know and love—including “smartest of the smarties” Scrooge McDuck—and enjoy this preview of all of the excitement that’s to come when DuckTales debuts.
The series, from Disney Television Animation, stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Dewey, and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack; and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. Annie Award nominee Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) serves as executive producer of DuckTales, with Francisco Angones (Disney XD’s Emmy® Award-nominated Wander Over Yonder) as story editor and co-producer and Sean Jimenez (Disney XD’s Annie Award-winning Gravity Falls) as art director.
Every day they’re out there making DuckTales!
