Posted Filed under

Disney is bringing the adventures of Huey, Louie and Dewey back to the small screen in a new series of DuckTales. And earlier this week, it released a preview clip from the new show.

It all kicks off in September with an hour-long special, and in the sneak peek that was released ahead of that, we get to hear David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck for the first time!

The synopsis for the show – that will premiere on Disney XD – has also been released, and it’s as follows…

Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, Disney XD’s animated comedy-adventure series “DuckTales” chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend.
