The new animated comedy adventure DuckTales will have a special sneak peak premiere on Disney Channel and Disney XD commonsensically titled ‘Woo-hoo!’ this AUTUMN. The brand new series is set to launch in the UK in EARLY 2018 on Disney Channel and DisneyLife. DuckTales will reach far and wide in 34 languages in 162 countries on Disney Channels and Disney XD worldwide.

This week saw the official debut of the re-imagined opening title with new rendition of the iconic theme song. Written by Mark C.

Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks’ comic designs, DuckTales chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.

The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge’s epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.
