Ducktales Mini Roundup - Main Title, Casting News and More



Disney has released the first two episodes of their new Ducktales reboot on youtube and on their Disney XD site for free, so you can enjoy the premiere legally (though I do think it might be region locked.) The rest of the series will start airing as of September 23.


Casting News



The Ducktales reboot is already boasting an impressive cast of voice actors, with David Tennant voicing Scrooge McDuck and a number of SNL alumni voicing various other characters. Disney has recently announced that Broadway Star Lin-Manuel Miranda has been added to the cast, voicing the now Latino Gizmoduck. When asked about the reason for the race change, co-producer Fransisco Angones explained he wanted to see more Latino representation. "I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if not the token Latino character, but the main superhero character of DuckTales happened to be Latino?’"

Expect to see a fan favorite



The creators of the Ducktales reboot showed a sizzle reel for the series at the San Diego Comic Con panel, and it's been reported that concept art of Darkwing Duck was included as part of that reel. For those who have seen the premiere already, the show already hinted at Darkwing's inclusion by name-dropping his city St. Canard. Megavolt, one of his villains, was also seen in the reel.

This is mostly an excuse to talk about the premiere. I thought it was super cute and I'm excited to see more.
