As if it wasn’t enough that “DuckTales” was coming back, Disney X.D. has now announced the cast for the animated series — and it’s going to blow you away. In an open challenge to any other TV show thinking it has a good cast, Disney X.D. has loaded up their new animated series with more fan-favorite actors than a J.J. Abrams project.
First and foremost, Scottish star of “Doctor Who,” “Jessica Jones” and “Broadchurch,” David Tennant, will lead the cast as the voice of Scrooge McDuck. That’s right, Uncle Scrooge is a former Time Lord, and also a Marvel supervillain. If there aren’t “Doctor Who” jokes sprinkled in throughout the show, that’s a missed opportunity.
He’ll be joined by a trio of very funny people playing Scrooge’s nephews: “Saturday Night Live” alum Bobby Moynihan voices Louie.”House of Lies” and “Parks and Recreation” star Ben Schwartz will play Dewey — and “Community” favorite Danny Pudi is taking on the role of Huey. They’ll be joined by Kate Micucci — one-half of the comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates — as Webby.
Rounding out the cast is current “SNL” star Beck Bennett as Scrooge’s pilot Launchpad McQuack and “Castle’s” Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. Additionally, though names have’t been released, the network confirms that characters Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys will appear on the new series.
Clearly, Disney X.D. is expecting their new take on “DuckTales” to be a hit: Why else would they cast so many big names, especially for those who grew up with “DuckTales” in the first place? We simply can’t wait for this new series to premiere and see how these funny people do in their roles.
In the meantime, we can watch them sing the classic “DuckTales” theme song together — in a way that will surely get it stuck in your head for days on end.
“DuckTales” premieres in Summer 2017 on Disney X.D.
