EVERY DAY THEY'RE OUT THERE MAKING "DUCKTALES"

DISNEY XD ORDERS SECOND SEASON OF HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ANIMATED SERIES AHEAD OF ITS SUMMER PREMIERE

DUCKBURG - Disney XD has ordered a second season of the all-new animated comedy series "DuckTales" ahead of its highly anticipated summer premiere. Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, the Disney Television Animation-produced series stars David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.

Today, a 90-second first look of the series was released on the Disney XD YouTube page.

Annie Award-nominee Matt Youngberg ("Ben 10: Omniverse") serves as executive producer of "DuckTales," with Francisco Angones (Disney XD's Emmy Award-nominated "Wander Over Yonder") as story editor and co-producer, and Sean Jimenez (Disney XD's Annie Award-winning "Gravity Falls") as art director.

The announcement was made today by Marc Buhaj, senior vice president, Programming and General Manager, Disney XD. Buhaj said, "Fans around the world are eager and we're looking forward to introducing viewers to the all-new 'DuckTales.' This early season two order is a testament to the quality work the creative team, led by Matt and Frank, and the cast are delivering."

The new family comedy-adventure series will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, the temperamental Donald Duck and their trusty team, Webby Vanderquack, Launchpad McQuack and Mrs. Beakley, embark on high-flying adventures around the world.

In December, a video of the cast singing a rendition of the original "DuckTales" theme song was the #1 video on YouTube and trended on social media, with over eight million views across YouTube and Facebook to date. [*Source: Facebook Insights, YouTube Analytics (data pulled through 2/24/2017)]
