First ‘DuckTales’ Trailer Shows a Reinvention Done Right (Woo-Ooh)

Disney is returning to that fictional land where life is like a hurricane, and petulant children actually hang out with their elderly great-uncles. This summer, Disney XD will debut their reboot of DuckTales, one of the gold standards by which ’80s cartoons and video game adaptations shall forever be judged. Now it’s got a wonderfully handsome new (if a bit lazily animated) style, and a fun voice cast that includes the likes of David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack; and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. If this is the future of re-invented, nostalgia-infused reinventions, we’re doing alright. Of course, as Power Rangers has shown us, this is not at all the future of nostalgia-infused reinventions. But still. We’d be doing great if it were.
