Catherine Tate reunites with David Tennant for Disney’s Duck Tales


Doctor Who alum Catherine Tate reunites with her former co-star David Tennant (voice of Scrooge McDuck) when she joins the cast of DUCKTALES as iconic villain Magica De Spell, Scrooge McDuck’s oldest, bitterest enemy in the new Disney Channel series DuckTales. Obsessed with exacting her cruel (and needlessly elaborate) revenge, the malevolent Sorceress of the Shadows plans to infiltrate Scrooge’s family with the help of her niece Lena, voiced by Kimiko Glenn (Orange Is the New Black). Tate’s character Magica De Spell’s first appearance was in the 1961 comic book Uncle Scrooge #36.

The new animated comedy adventure TV series is set to launch in the UK in early 2018 on Disney Channel and DisneyLife, following a TV movie special, which will air on 13th November 2017 titled Woo-oo!

The original Emmy Award-winning animation was treasured by Gen X viewers across the globe, with 100 episodes produced by Disney Television Animation from 1987 to 1990, 30 years ago. Now a whole new generation and nostalgia fans can experience the mystery, rivalry, big secrets and spectacular adventure associated with the show.

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.
