Life is like a hurricane here in Duckburg — and a new generation is about to find out why. “DuckTales” is getting rebooted with a premiere coming to Disney XD in 2017 and the first look at the upcoming animated series has been revealed.
The official Disney D23 Twitter account shared the still, which features Uncle Scrooge, his grandsons Huey, Dewey and Louie, along with Webby, riding through the jungle in a jeep seemingly being attacked by spears. They’re not alone though, as Donald Duck is grasping on to the top of the jeep for dear life.
Donald being involved in an interesting change from the original series. While he made appearances now and then, the setup of the series was Donald Duck joining the Navy, meaning his sons went to live with their Uncle Scrooge. Perhaps he’ll have a more active role in the new series.
It’s not clear who else will be involved in the new “DuckTales” just yet, but certainly the Beagle Boys need to make an appearance, along with Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose and maybe even a cameo by Darkwing Duck. Let’s get dangerous.
There’s no premiere date for “DuckTales” just yet.
