Ducktales was an cartoon television series that made adventurers out of children from 1987 to 1990. It’s 2017 and it looks like the Ducks are doing it again! There’s an entirely new generation belting out the Ducktales theme song and “woo-ooing” everywhere. This DVD and subsequent new television series is bound to quickly become a new family favorite bridging the gap between nostalgia and brand new.
The television movie reintroduces the main characters these children’s parents grew to love. You meet Uncle Donald Duck and his three nephews: Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Donald takes his nephews to McDuck Manor to meet their great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. He lives in a what most would consider a stately mansion. Through a little snooping and meeting their new friend, Webby, the nephews find out about Scrooge’s epic past. The more they find out about Great-Uncle Scrooge the faster the triplets get everyone involved in a quest to find the Lost City of Atlantis. The only problem is that Scrooge McDuck has become rather reclusive over the years and may not be the duck he used to be. Will they be able to conquer their quest? You’ll have to watch to find out.
The DVD also includes six “Welcome to Duckburg!” shorts all featuring characters in the show: Donald, Scrooge, Huey, Webby, Launchpad, and Beakley.
You get to hear the new voice cast bring these ducks back into your home. Easily recognizable voices include: David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (“Community”) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live”) as Louie, and Kate Micucci (“Garfunkel and Oates”) as Webby Vanderquack.
Rated TV-Y (US) with the bonus material not rated this DVD is approximately 44 minutes long.
