Has there ever been a show from your childhood that you absolutely adored? Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones have one such show ‘DuckTales’. They loved the 1987 series so much that they decided to give it a reboot for the present generation. Developed by them for Disney Channel, this show takes you back to the story of the Duck family. The mischievous triplets, the tired Donald, and Scrooge, who not only shares the name but also the personality of Dicken’s lead character in ‘A Christmas Carol’, are back with new adventures. Even though the premise is pretty much the same, some major changes have been made in the tone of the story and the portrayal of characters.
DuckTales Cast: Who’s in it?
While the creators wanted to bring back the original cast of the show, they didn’t succeed at it. To match up to the talent of the previous cast, they got hold of some gifted actors of this time.
The voice of Scrooge McDuck is given by David Tennant. If you don’t know him, then you must really be living under a rock! He is best-known for his role in ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Broadchurch’. He was also the part of the magical world of ‘Harry Potter’ in ‘The Goblet of Fire’. He has also worked in films and TV shows like ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Casanova’, ‘Bad Samaritan’, ‘Mary, Queen of Scots’ and ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. He also set to appear in the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel, ‘Good Omens’.
Dany Pudi lends a voice to the character of Huey. You might recognise Pudi from TV shows like ‘Community’, ‘The Guilt Trip’, ‘Gilmore Girls’, ‘Trip Tank’ and ‘Powerless’.
Ben Schwartz serves as the voice of Dewey. Schwartz is known for his roles in various films and TV shows like ‘The Walk, ‘This Is Where I Leave You’, ‘Parks and Recreation’, ‘House of Lies’ and ‘BoJack Horseman’. He is also set to be a part of the upcoming movie ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’.
