It’s time!! Remember how I told you DuckTales was back?!?! Make your plans, set your DVR, make sure you have snacks on hand for tomorrow night!
Fun Fact #1: Updated Theme Song
DuckTales! Woohoo! Who doesn’t love that theme song? I mean everyone gets it stuck in their head as soon as it plays. I’ve found myself humming it as I clean the house lately. Here is a fun video of the new cast singing the theme song. You’re welcome~
Fun Fact #2: David Tennant is Scrooge McDuck
Yes, the entire cast is amazing, but if I’m honest I love me some David Tennant. He as Scrooge McDuck is the PERFECT casting! In fact, MATT YOUNGBERG said, We really wanted to find somebody who was legitimately Scottish. We thought that was really important in this iteration. Someone who had the character to bring this, icon alive. And David is an amazing actor. He’s morphed into this role in, in an incredible way.” I hope they release more footage of the actors in the booth. Seeing what actually goes on behind the scenes is super fun.
Fun Fact #3: The Hand Drawn Animation Look Was Intentional
When chatting with the filmmakers last month at #D23EXPO they had this to say about the animated look: “We wanted to make sure it felt hand crafted. We didn’t wanna go the CG route, because there were a few reasons for that. One was the original series, when it was brought onto the air it was just a bunch of Disney animators making a TV show. It was an amazing, amazingly animated show. It had the hand-crafted feel that we wanted to retain.”
Personally, I love the comic book like feel to it. It reminds of those invisible ink books with the raised dots I used to get when I was a kid.
