Duck Tales, the Reboot

It's been thirty years since the last iteration of this series, so maybe a new take is in order. (The Mouse, after all, only waited twenty six years to remake Beauty and the Beast).

Community's Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz of Parks and Recreation, and Saturday Night Live cast member Bobby Moynihan lend their vocal talents to Huey, Dewey and Louie; comedian Kate Micucci voices Webby Vanderquack and Moynihan's SNL castmate Beck Bennet, plays Launchpad McQuack.

And since Alan Young (the original Scrooge McDuck) is no longer alive, and would be near the century mark if he were, Doctor Who stalwart Dave Tennant has taken over the role. Longtime Donald Duck specialist Tony Anselmo (who, besides being a voice talent, is a veteran animator who's work appears in Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and numerous other features) returns in the role of nephew Donald. (Voice actor Daniel Ross can be heard as Donald on another DTVA series, Mickey's Road Racers).

(And the longer "Duck Tales" trailer ... that dropped at the start of the month and millions have now watched):
