First Image from the New 2017 Ducktales Reboot!
First Image from the New 2017 Ducktales Reboot!

Last year when Disney announced the new Ducktales animated series reboot that will be premiering on Disney XD, I was ecstatic! Ducktales has to be one the greatest animated cartoons of all time and now they are back! Disney released a first image from the new series and it is looking great!

Disney plans to release the new series in 2017 and will star the same characters including Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Duey and Louie, Donald Duck and Webby Vanderquack. Disney did a reboot of Mickey Mouse and Ducktales looks to follow suit.

Everybody sing! “Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg…”

      The Disney comics it was based on have been around since before WWII and are still massively popular on Europe and South America. This is less “another reboot”, more “another cartoon using elements of the comics”, following in a line that includes things like Wonderful World of Colour.

    The animation looks really cute and dynamic, at least.

    Brett Williams Thought you’d enjoy this, for some reason.

    I like the designs and color choices, they feel reminiscent of the original Carl Barks comics; fitting, in that it was those comics where Scrooge McDuck originated!

    Hmmmm, I guess.

    It does look fun, though.

    Style is MUCH better than in the original (which I never cared for while I love and own the whole Carl Barks library), and its nice to see hand drawn stuff in this day and age.

      My impression is that it looks like it’s done fully on computer. Possibly by Mercury Filmworks. For sure, though, I believe this may be a good reboot.

    I grew up with the original DuckTales on VHS. I still remember the theme song. This actually looks like it’d be good, and actually pay respect to the original. The new Powerpuff Girls reboot is absolutely awful, though. (They already have it up on KissCartoon.) That being said, I still don’t understand why networks can’t just go back to airing original shows, it’s not like kids would enjoy it any less. I don’t feel that 90’s animation should have to be seen as outdated, and reboot culture in general is getting really annoying.

    Not bad. Still keeping my fingers crossed.

    I dunno how I feel about this… why a reboot? Why not just rerun the original? Guess I’ll just have to wait and see. The style doesn’t look too bad I guess…
