The New 'DuckTales' Cast Singing the Original Theme Song Will Make You SO Happy
By Raphael Chestang
The all-star voice-over cast of the upcoming DuckTales reboot paid the highest form of respect to the original by singing the classic theme song!
Since Disney announced the reboot in February 2015, fans have been waiting to find out who would voice the iconic characters. On Friday morning, the network revealed the cast in the best way possible by posting a YouTube video of the actors belting out the catchy theme.
David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck), Danny Pudi (Huey), Ben Schwartz (Dewey), Bobby Moynihan (Louie), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), Toks Olagundoye (Mrs. Beakley) and Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack) do their own renditions of the tune while in the recording booth.
"Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg," the cast croons in the clip.
The original DuckTales aired from 1987 to 1990 for a total of 100 episodes.
Last year, Senior VP Programming and General Manager of Disney XD, Marc Huhaj, remarked on the importance of the series.
"DuckTales has a special place in Disney's TV animation history," he said. "It drew its inspiration from Disney legend Carl Barks' comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults. Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation."
