Everybody say ‘Woo-oo!” Disney has released the official theme song for the eagerly anticipated DuckTales reboot, along with exciting details for the premiere of the brand new series!
To begin with, DuckTales will premiere on Disney XD in the form of a brand new animated TV movie marathon. Aptly titled ‘Woo-oo’ (what else?) the hour-long premiere will run 24 times in a row starting August 12 at midnight. The following month, on September 23, the show will officially begin its regular run with two new episodes airing simultaneously on Disney XD, the Watch Disney XD app, and VOD.
The DuckTales TV movie features Donald Duck reluctantly taking his three nephews—Huey, Dewey and Louie—to meet their Uncle Scrooge McDuck, the wealthiest duck in all of Duckburg. Soon, Scrooge and the nephews find themselves embroiled in an epic adventure involving ancient totems that takes them all the way to the Lost City of Atlantis.
That’s not all; to get everyone hyped for the big premiere, Disney has released the official theme song and opening titles for the new DuckTales show. It’s the same iconic song, but somehow even better (if that was even possible). It’s performed by Felicia Barton with the original composition by Mark Mueller and is a loving tribute not only to the classic DuckTales comics but also the original show. Count us in!
