'DuckTales' Theme Song Gets an Update for Disney XD Reboot

The revival's voice cast includes David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck and Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

The new "DuckTales" will debut with an hour-long TV movie that will air for 24 consecutive hours starting at midnight on August 12 on Disney XD. The series then 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).

Disney has also announced an avatar creation app launching in July, an Angry Birds cameo featuring Donald Duck in August, and a slew of comic and book titles rolling out from July to well into 2018. That's right, the movie - called, of course, Woo-oo - will play 24 times in a row, which is roughly equivalent to how long it will take you to get the song out of your head.

Even the song's original writer Mark Mueller told MASHABLE that the team did "an incredible job".

McDuck is also backed by his trusted McDuck Manor squad: fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, fellow adventurer and a friendly addition to the Huey-Dewey-Louie dynamic.

Believe it or not, September 23 is actually the 30th anniversary of the premiere date of the original DuckTales series back in 1987.
