Last year, Disney announced an all-new version of the Emmy Award-winning animated series DuckTales had been ordered for launch on DisneyXD channels around the world in 2017. Now Disney Television Animation has revealed the first image from new DuckTales series.

The new DuckTales series’ adventures will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews—Huey, Dewey, and Louie—and the optimistic-yet-temperamental Donald Duck embark on high-flying adventures worldwide. Other beloved characters slated to be in the new stories are Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell & Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.

Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming, and General Manager, DisneyXD, said, “DuckTales has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, it drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks’ comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”

A generation’s seminal cartoon, “DuckTales” led the daily syndicated cartoon block “The Disney Afternoon” with 100 episodes produced from 1987–‘90. An animated theatrical film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, premiered in 1990.
