I don't care what it looks like as long as the writing is good and they try to bring back as many VAs as possible.

Not to jinx this, but I'm surprised there hasn't been a horrible live action/CGI DuckTales movie yet. What with the 80s/90s nostalgia boom now. I'm glad there hasn't been, because those are always aweful. But it seems like something some executive would latch onto given the still well remembered name and insanely catchy theme song.

I wonder if this is why I actually saw a copy of the Ducktails movie on the shelf last time I was in Target.  Seemed like they were never going to release that thing.

I thought Disney didn't seem to care a lot for their lineup.  I don't think any of the Disney Afternoon had finished DVD releases.

They actually released it a few years ago, but it was exclusively available as a prize for Club Disney members.

I don't care what it looks like as long as the writing is good and they try to bring back as many VAs as possible.

They were able to get pretty much the whole cast together for the Ducktales Remastered game. That's promising.

True, but both June Foray and Alan Young are in their 90s so they can't do the voices for too much longer.

I will say with Wonder Over Yonder and Gravity Falls (I guess I could mention Phineas and Ferb but it never did anything for me), Disney is starting to bring out some quality shows.  I'm hopeful about this one but there's a good two years at least before we see if it even happens.  I also think that it would benefit from the sort of mythology that helped make Gravity Falls a success.  I mean, it really does, but to slowly unveil the crazy world of Scrooge McDuck would be great and the show already did some great serialization in the early episodes (I love that arc).

Also, please adapt The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck (and the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck Companion) piecemeal throughout the series.

And will they keep the theme song?


True Story: When I was in Prague, I was sitting on the tram, and these Czech punks were fucking around. All the sudden they start singing (in Czech I assume) and they get to this part where they go "Woo hoo" and it turned out they were singing the fucking Ducktales theme song in Czech!

It was amazeballs!
Title: Re: New DuckTales series from Disney

They'll probably keep it in one form or another.
Title: Re: New DuckTales series from Disney

I feel like changing the theme song too much will cause a nerd revolt that even Disney wouldn't be able to handle.

New animated series based on "DuckTales" will launch on Disney XD in 2017 (http://jimhillmedia.com/editor_in_chief1/b/jim_hill/archive/2015/02/25/new-animated-series-based-on-quot-ducktales-quot-will-launch-on-disney-xd-in-2017.aspx#sthash.Hmf1O7qr.dpbs)
Quote from: Jim Hill
Yep. An all-new "DuckTales," an animated comedy series based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, has been ordered for launch in 2017 on Disney XD channels around the world. Set to be produced by Disney Television Animation, this new series will once again feature that feathered tycoon / adventurer Scrooge McDuck, his plucky grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and -- of course -- "Unca" Donald Duck.

" '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," said Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD. "Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."

Mind you, Disney's relaunch of this much-beloved Disney Afternoon series wasn't entirely unexpected. Ever since Capcom & Disney Interactive released that "DuckTales Remastered" game back in August of 2013 (Not to mention how Uncle Scrooge's Lucky Dime and Money Bin popped up as pieces of the Disney Infinity universe), there have been whispers that The Walt Disney Company was planning to return to Duckburg.

But today's announcement -- which confirms that not only will Scrooge and his family be back but virtually the entire original "DuckTales" supporting cast (As in: Scrooge's faithful butler, Duckworth; ingenious inventor Gyro Gearloose; crash-prone pilot Launchpad McQuack; Scrooge McDuck's arch-nemesis Flintheart Glomgold; greedy sorceress Magica DeSpell; Ma Beagle and her bumbling brood, the Beagle Boys. Not to mention the nephew's nanny Mrs. Beakley and her granddaughter Webbigail Vanderquack) -- is really more than fans of 1980s-era Disney Television Animation could have ever hoped for.

But as to whether this relaunch of "DuckTales" will be done in hand-drawn animation (which is what the original 100 episodes that Disney Television Animation produced from 1987-90 were done in) or in CG, or whether any of the veteran voice actors who originally voiced Duckburg residents (EX: Alan Young, June Foray, Tony Anselmo and Russi Taylor. To name just a few) will be asked back to return to voice these much-beloved characters for this next set of shows ... Disney Channel officials weren't willing to say. Not yet, anyway.

We can try, but it's too soon to tell.  It's the nature of rebooted shows to re-write history.

I can't answer that, but I do know that Launchpad was on both shows. Which brings me to my point. Give Launchpad his own spinoff show.

He was originally going to be called Roboduck.  If you look at his chest symbol, it's an R they flipped around when they changed the name.

I think there was an episode of Duck Tales where Scrooge goes all vigilante and dresses up as a superhero to fight crime or something? Was that the inspiration for Darkwing Duck?

Yes there was and yes you are right, that was one of the inspirations.  The other was a Lunchpad focused episode called "Double-O-Duck" which is both the inspiration for bringing Launchpad aboard and for introducing SHUSH. FOWL and all the spy stuff (the show was initially envisioned as a spy pastiche but creator Tad Stones had trouble injecting heart into the project until it became more superhero focused).

I would LOVE a new Darkwing series!

I never read it, but I heard REALLY good things about Ian Brill's Darkwing comic that sadly had the plug pulled on it after Disney's purchase of Marvel.
Heard they were going to start it up again sometime.

I hope that's true and I hope it continues what Boom studios started.

EDIT: Doing some research, it seems that Ian Brill won't be returning but it sounds like much of the series was actually planned and ghost-written by editor Aaron Sparrow.  That's a bit of a disappointment since Brill seemed perfectly charming in his appearances on Battleship Pretension, but it sounds like Sparrow will be getting some long overdue creative credit.

NOOO--- CHILDHOOD. . . actually left quite unaffected. An animated series might actually be alright. I mean, hell, Ninja Turtles is on its THIRD animated series, and in my opinion it's the best version of Ninja Turtles they've made so far.

They're keeping it a cartoon, that helps. And a series, which I think suits something like Ducktales better. If they were gonna make another one of those god-awful live action / cgi film adaptations [with just enough gratuitous mild profanity and suggestive scenes to get it a PG rating], then I'd probably be groaning right now.

Caught the first couple episodes (It's literally the only thing on all day on Disney XD).  Full disclosure: I was never a diehard fan of the old show. I liked it well enough and watched it whenever I caught it, but it wasn't the highlight of my viewing schedule. With that said, I think I liked this better than the original. It captured everything that worked with the original and fixed a bunch of stuff that never really did.

I thought it was a really strong opener.  Lots of really good jokes and action sequences.  Plus, references to other Disney afternoon cities (though as much as I love Goofy, I don't really need a trip to Spoonerville.  Cape Suzette and St. Canard on the other hand...).

And I loved

Hey, Noelle Stevenson wrote on this episode.  As someone who is currently reading through Lumberjanes, I approve.  Heck, this version of Webby is clearly Lumberjane material: a nerd who is tough and thirsts for adventure.  Seriously, Lumberjanes is a great all ages comic.

Th first episode was pretty entertaining. I haven't warmed up to the voices of the nephews yet but I think the voice actor who does Donald Duck was almost spot on. I also like the idea of an actual Scottish actor playing Scrooge. I thought some of it was actually funny and the adventure stuff was pretty good too.

Love the tone they established, love that Donald has a big role this time, love hearing Tennent's voice as Scrooge, and all of the "updated" characters worked for me. I was always annoyed by Webby's whinyness in the original, but this version is great.

Only thing I don't like is waiting over a month for the next episode.
Title: Re: New DuckTales series from Disney
Post by: Johnny Unusual on August 16, 2017, 04:08:13 PM
I know.  I mean, when I get droughts of Adventure Time or Steven Universe, its because they were released in "Bomb" form, so we get a bunch of episodes at once.  And based on what Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch says, the fault seems to lie with the network rather than the animators.  I'm not sure if that means episodes are ready and they are still releasing them at slow rates or if they release them quickly after they are done and don't hold onto them to build a backlog.

It is odd when you realize half way into an episode of television aimed at children in 2017 that the writers were making a parody of a cult 70s movie. Turned out great though.

So the word is Darkwing Duck is going to show up in this show at some point, and it just hit me: If he's voiced by anyone other than Jim Cummings, it's gonna have to be a heck of a performance to sell me on it. I've been assuming it would be him up until now, even though EVERY OTHER CHARACTER has had a voice change.

Don't get me wrong, every one of the new voice actors is killing it, and every change they've made to the show so far has been brilliant, but Darkwing was MY Disney Afternoon show. I just hope they do him justice.

There's only two episodes of this first season I haven't seen yet: "The house of the lucky gander" and "The Living Mummies of Toth-ra!". I really should check those out some time. I think this new series has writing that's easily on par if not sometimes better than the original series. Anyway, I just bought the two aforementioned episodes on Google Play so I might let you know my opinion on them later.

He'd be a great guest director for an episode. Not sure if animation series do that, though.

He does seem like an odd choice for a voice actor. I wonder if the character he'll be playing is a director.

Adventure Time has had a guest director episode a season at a certain point (most notably Masaki Yuuasa, who is an amazing and unique anime director).  Of course, all of them were animation directors, so getting a live action director would be different.

I enjoyed the Christmas episode a lot. The motivations for the villain was very unique and unexpected. I love the idea of the different theme song. I just don't happen to like that musical style, so it did nothing for me.
Seeing Donald young was interesting, but I wonder if they will try to explain later that his voice got even more incoherent as he got older?

I saw the latest episode Treasure of the Found Lamp. Wow, that was the first episode in this series so far that was just straight up awful. We are given absolutely nothing to care about Djinn and his quest. And most frustratingly, there is no reason for Scrooge McDuck to be intimidated by him! Half of the episode we know is a waste of time as we're watching it, and then at the end we find out the whole thing is a waste of time. Which would be more forgivable if it was funny, but it's really not. I barely chuckled a few times.
The only thing I liked was during the origin of the lamp when a character decides their first wish is to free the Genie.

There's a great line in the episode 'The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks' where Scrooge and Flintheart are conspiring against Mark Beaks. Flintheart's overly elaborate plan keeps involving pools filled with sharks, which Scrooge complains about the practicality of acquiring. Flintheart says "Nah, I've got a great shark guy." Implying that he has a regular smuggler for sharks in his various schemes.

Easily the best bit was Mrs. Beakly, and she was barely in it!
Also, the only way to interpret Dewey taking the "beard energy" to win is him taking steroids.
