New trailer released for Duck Tales reboot starring David Tennant, A-WOO-OO!

03.02.2017

I have a confession to make: I never really watched DUCK TALES. I was too young when it first aired, and by the time I would have been watching Saturday Morning reruns, I was already into adult cartoons like THE SIMPSONS, BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD, SPACE GHOST: COAST TO COAST, etc. So I never really got the appeal of it.

This is all to say that there's a new reboot coming out for Disney XD, and as I've gotten older I've tried to be more open-minded to different cartoons for various demographics. So I'm curious how I'll feel about this one. Let's take a look:

Like I said, I was never really a big fan of the original series, and this doesn't really seem to be changing my mind. I mean, unless they're dressed in bat-themed bondage gear and punching clowns, it's hard for me to give a shit about a billionaire's problems (but, to be fair, that's just me). However, it does boasts an all-star cast, with Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Dewey, and Louie (respectively), and David Tennant (the best DOCTOR WHO) as Scrooge McDuck. And I will admit, I do appreciate that the nephews now aren't just higher-pitched Donald clones, and seem to have their own distinct personalities beyond "different colored hats".

But what do you Schmoes think? Any fans of DUCK TALES out there? And if so, what're your thoughts on the reboot? Sound off below!

Either way, DUCK TALES reboot will premiere on Disney XD Summer 2017.

Looks awful

The animation is crap and the voices are terrible. The three kids now sound too much like dude bros; it's irritating.

Good cast, but I was more of a fan of Darkwing Duck and Gargoyles over this and Tail Spin back in the day.

Voices are fine, but the animation looks HORRIBLE

Why do kids shows have like no animation budgets anymore? This just visually looks bad. Why does every cartoon have to look exactly the same and cheap as a Thai hooker?

DAMN DIGITAL ANIMATION AND ITS PERSONALITY-FREE OVERY CLEAN STYLE RUINING EVERYTHING! grumble grumble okay now that my old man reaction is out of the way, this looks like it's got some strong writing. Hopefully it does well - Duck Tales was a really smart show back in the day so it's got a high bar to reach

Maybe it's rose-tinted glasses, but that seemed to have wayyy worse animation (and worse voices, and theme music) than the original? I was kinda excited for this in a retro way, but that trailer evaporated it. Man I feel old and grouchy now ;)

Actually, if you go look around on GameFaqs forums and similar sites Duck Tales has the reputation of being fun, but pretty easy. Sorry to be that guy.

Eh, I'm willing to admit I just suck at games. However, it was more difficult for me than similar platforming games at the time.
