Just hearing the name of the show “DuckTales,” makes me start singing the song. “Life is like a hurricane,” you know the rest of the song! Yes, friends Disney XD premieres “DuckTales” reboot and I’ve got all the exclusives! Life was truly like a hurricane during our time at Disney D23Expo. Thanks to Disney for inviting me to attend this amazing event. It was outta control you guys! I’m stoked to share our experience from meeting the executive producers, talking classic DuckTales and of course jumping into Scrooge McDuck’s money pit!
If you were a fan of the original, you’re going to love the reboot. DisneyXD has hit a home run with DuckTales. We received a great poster and pencil case and when I unpacked the poster Aramis was very excited and Ezra was so happy he ran off with the pencil case. The boys have been fans of DuckTales for a couple years now, I downloaded One of the things Aramis said was how it looked like a comic book. That quickly took me back to the interview when Matt and Frank said was that they “wanted to keep the hand drawn look and feel to the series so if you ever pause the show you’ll see the comic book pulp.” How cool is that?! I love that my kiddo noticed that right off the bat. You can see the pulp used in the DuckTales title poster below. Go ahead take a look.
You can only imagine the awesome adventures Huey, Lewy and Dewy and Webby will go on hanging out with Scrooge McDuck. I can’t wait for you to see the first episode so we can chat about it. As a matter of fact, I think we should all meet on Twitter and tweet during the premiere. What you don’t know when it premieres?! Here ya go!
“DuckTales” will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, SATURDAY, AUGUST 12 (beginning at midnight, EDT/PDT) on Disney XD.
