David Tennant has joined the voice cast of Disney XD’s new DuckTales in the role of Scrooge McDuck.
Tennant is joined by Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of mischief-making Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively. The series will follow Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews — Huey, Dewey and Louie — as they embark on high-flying adventures worldwide.
But who else is joining these familiar characters when it airs on Disney XD in August 2017?
Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo)
Well who else would be back? Donald Duck (voiced by Tony Anselmo) has to be a big part of this revival. . “He’s been a single parent obsessively taking care of the boys, and he’s a little bit overprotective and doesn’t want to take a lot of risks, whereas so much of Scrooge’s success is based on the fact that he’s willing to take risks,” says co-producer Francisco Angones in an interview with Entertainment magazine.
Gladstone Gander (Paul F. Tompkins)
If you have a billionaire self-made duck you need a rival competitor. And Gladstone Gander is just that. He’s always been an irriation to Donald Duck but now that Donald and his nephews are back in Scrooge McDuck’s life, Glanstone become Scrooge’s annoyance.
Gyro Gearloose (Jim Rash)
For those who remember the 1980 series, you’ll remember that Scrooge has a live-in mad scientist. He’s back in this new series too. Just with a more modern twist.
Goldie O’Gilt (Allison Janney)
For those David Tennant’s out there, they will know that the TimeLord was a big fan of the West Wing Series. So he quacked for joy know that C.J. Cregg (Allison Janney’s character in West Wing) was going to be playing Scrooge’s long time love interest We’re glad that producers could make their star go all fanboy!!
Ma Beagle (Margo Martindale) and the Beagle Boys (Eric Bauza)
The Beagle Boys and their matriarch are back as the annoying stupid criminal gang who’s bark is worst than their bite.
There are a few more returning characters that Entertainment magazine has revealed for Disney XD’s DuckTales but you’ll just have to step over to their post to find out. In meantime enjoy the cast of DuckTales singing the Original Theme song.
DuckTales is produced by Disney Television Animation with Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) as executive producer.
