We have known about this DuckTales reboot since the dead of winter. Though spring has just started, I’m going to need summer to hurry up and get here. I’m not looking forward to the sweltering heat. Rather, I’m making plans to plop on my couch, crank up the AC, and watch DuckTales like it’s 1987.
A new trailer released at the beginning of this month, and it just added to how hype I am feeling for this reboot. The animation is a little…different, but once you see the characters in action, all of your doubts about this reboot fall away.
Not to mention, David Freaking Tennant is the voice for Scrooge McDuck. I repeat, the 10th Doctor is the voice for Scrooge McDuck. Be still my beating heart, for I am now in love with this Disney show.
Also, the beloved theme song still sounds the same. I’ve been belting random lines from it throughout our home (Shout out to my husband, so sorry he has to put up with this). Every once in a while I’ll put on my headphones and listen to the new cast sing it. Be forewarned: David Tennant singing will make your emotions go all kinds of ways.
I wonder what else they could reboot? Maybe Care Bears? Or even Gummi Bears, which, for the life of me, I cannot remember the plot, but man that theme song was fire. I’d even be up for a Strawberry Shortcake reboot. Heck, let’s just relive my entire childhood!
Got an itch to watch the original series again? You’re in luck! You can purchase the DVD here from the fine folks at Amazon.
What do you guys think? Are you just as excited for DuckTales as I am? Or are you reading this, rolling your eyes, thinking I’m just overreacting? Either way, I’d love to know what you think. And also what reboots you would like to see. Leave us a note in the comments section.
