You read that correctly! Disney XD has ordered an all-new DuckTales series which is slated to hit Disney XD in 2017.
Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD, 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.
The new series will feature all of the same characters that we grew up loving; Scrooge McDuck, and his trouble-making grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie.
The original DuckTales is currently available on WATCH Disney Channel.
