When Disney brings back "DuckTales" in 2017, "Doctor Who," "Community" and "Saturday Night Live" stars will be voicing the new adventures of Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie and the rest of the gang.
David Tennant ("Doctor Who") made his debut as Scrooge McDuck in a video released Friday by Disney XD featuring the new cast singing the cartoon's classic theme song. Along with Tennant, that cast is full of comedians from everyone's favorite TV shows.
McDuck's nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie will be voiced by Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz ("Parks and Recreation") and Bobby Moynihan ("Saturday Night Live"). Launchpad McQuack's new voice is coming from Beck Bennett ("Saturday Night Live), Toks Olagundoye ("Castle") will be Mrs Beakley, and Kate Micucci ("Another Period") is playing Webby Vanderquack.
The original "DuckTales" show ran from 1987 to 1990, featuring the adventures of the amusingly rich McDuck as he took his nephews all over the world. The television show had a tie-in video game released on the original Nintendo Entertainment System in 1989 and re-mastered for consoles and PC in 2013.
