DuckTales woo-oo! Remember that catchy song? Well you’re about to hear it all over again in a brand new Ducktales cartoon coming to Disney XD! Fans young and old will love this rebooted series. While at D23Expo last week I also had the chance to jump in a real-life Ducktales Money Bin! Yessss, it’s true! Read on for more details, and my cool jump shot in Scrooge McDuck’s money bin.
I was invited as media to cover this event. All opinions are my own.
A New Ducktales Cartoon
The new animated comedy adventure “DuckTales” will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, SATURDAY, AUGUST 12 (beginning at midnight EDT/PDT), on Disney XD. Then, the series will debut with two new episodes SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT). Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates.
Was it your childhood theme to jump in Scrooge’s Money Bin? Fans lined up for hours for the chance to do just that during this year’s D23Expo. It was such a cool experience!! And yes, those are plastic coins we’re jumping into. I kept my jump lady-like since I was wearing a dress. Press play on the video to watch me fly. I kinda think I look like Tink. 😉
Some of the cast were at D23Expo including Ben Schwartz (Dewey Duck), Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), and Toks Olagundoye (Mrs. Beakley). They also participated in a panel with executive producer Matt Youngberg, co-producer/story editor Francisco Angones and art director Sean Jimenez. As we near the launch date of Ducktales, I’ll be sharing my Q&A session with the producers.
Are you excited for the all new Ducktales Cartoon premiering August 12?
