Disney XD has announced an August 12th premiere date for “DuckTales,” the upcoming reboot of the classic 1980s animated comedy-adventure series.
Things will kick off with a one-hour television movie which will be presented for 24 consecutive hours. Subsequent episodes will then begin from September 23rd. Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates.
The story follows the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck, big-hearted and fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.
Disney has also released the new series’ re-interpretation of the iconic opening credits and theme of the original show.
