‘DuckTales’ Reboot Set for Summer 2017 With First Teaser, Woo-oo!
If you thought Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot was steeped in nostalgia before, wait until you hear that familiar theme music once again. The new adventures of Huey, Dewey and Louie have officially claimed a summer 2017 premiere, outlined in a gold-diving teaser.
Per Entertainment Weekly, a first teaser for the rebooted series confirms a summer 2017 premiere, as well the return of that classic theme music. 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 Television Animation will produce the new version, which features a fan-favorite cast of Scrooge McDuck, grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie and Donald Duck, along with Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell and Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack.
