‘DuckTales’ Reboot Adds Margo Martindale, Allison Janney and More to Cast
Life really is a duck-blur here in Duckburg, and those now confirmed among the cast for Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot will make your head spin. Meet the new Gyro Gearloose, Ma Beagle and more, as favorites like Jim Rash and Margo Martindale join the cast.
Following the addition of Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda as GizmoDuck, Entertainment Weekly confirmed a multitude of famous voices among the new cast. Not only do we have Tony Anselmo in the expanded role of Donald Duck himself, but also Paul F. Tompkins as nemesis Gladstone Gander, Community alum Jim Rash as Gyro Gearloose, Allison Janney as “Scrooge’s paramour” Goldie O’Gilt and
Character Actress Margo Martindale as Ma Beagle.
If that weren’t enough, Eric Bauza will play the Beagle Boys, while Keith Ferguson voices rival billionaire Flintheart Glomgold, and Silicon Valley star Josh Brener plays tech industry billionaire Mark Beaks. The series premiere has also been set for August, while producers promise “it should feel like a combination” of Indiana Jones and Arrested Development, and sharpen the characterizations of Huey, Dewey and Louie.
Already renewed for Season 2, the new Disney XD DuckTales features among its cast Jessica Jones star and Doctor Who favorite David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, along with SNL alum Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Danny Pudi as Huey, Kate Micucci as Webby, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack.
Eyed for a summer premiere, the first season will also consist of twenty-one half-hour episodes and two hourlong specials, with Matt Youngberg serving as executive producer beside story editor/co-producer Francisco Angones, and Gravity Falls art director Sean Jimenez.
Disney XD should hopefully have a more specific DuckTales premiere soon, but watch the trailer below and stay tuned.
