Disclaimer: Disney invited me to California on an all-expenses paid trip, in exchange for my coverage of events, which included D23 Expo and a screening of the all new DuckTales on DisneyXD. As always, all opinions are my own.
If you are like me, you instantly know this theme song. In fact, if you spotted me with 24 of my best blogging buddies this past week, you would have noticed the humming of this exact jingle ALL. THE. TIME.
We couldn’t contain our excitement as we realized an entire new generation of Disney fans will now know the fun (and mystery) behind our favorite Duck family.
Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, Disney XD’s animated comedy-adventure series “DuckTales” chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.
FUN FACT: Lin-Manuel Miranda (of Hamilton, Moana) is quite busy lately, adding DuckTales to his repertoir. He has joined the cast!
Personally, I cannot wait to sit down with my daughter and watch (okay, and sing)!
I had the privilege this week to not only watch the series premiere, but to sit down and interview Executive Producer Matt Youngberg and Co-Producer/Story Editor Francisco Angones. What a thrill that was (I’ll be bringing you that interview soon – so keep a lookout)!
We were the first to actually sit down and screen the episode and I can say without a doubt that DuckTales fans will not be disappointed.
Since we were at D23 Expo, you know there was some extra fun to be had. Take a look as I jumped right into Scrooge McDuck’s Money Bin!
Why yes, that’s a real jump I did, right into those gold coins!
Jumping in was fun, but getting out, well, that took some extra work. Ha!
