Brother Eric and I watched a lot of DuckTales as kids. A lot. So I went into watching this trailer with a heavy heart. Especially with the art style. It really does nothing for me.
Let me start out by saying that, with the exception of Donald Duck, all the voices sound WRONG. Gone are the duckese voices for the nephews, Launchpad, while close to right as any of them, sounds off, and Scrooge…
No one’s going to replace Alan Young in the part. No one. I don’t care how Scottish the new guy is, Young is Scrooge and no one will replace him. Ever.
Beyond that, my God am I looking forward to seeing a full episode.
This looks fun. The nephews look to be an improvement on the original series (you can tell them apart even without the individual color schemes!) Plus, more Donald Duck is never a bad thing. More importantly, David Tennant, the new Scrooge, sounds like he’s having a blast playing the part, and I’m sure that’s going to help the series.
There are signs of the typical Disneyisms here and there, but this looks promising.
