PremiseEdit

 
Scrooge McDuck (right), Donald's nephews Huey (red), Dewey (blue), Louie (green) and Donald Duck in the 2017 series.

After not speaking to each other for ten years, Scrooge McDuck is reunited with his nephew Donald Duck after he asks Scrooge to babysit his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie for the day. The presence of the newcomers rekindles Scrooge's sense of adventure, leading the group to go on many new treasure-hunting expeditions. The nephews and their new friend Webby seek the truth behind their uncles' strained relationship and the unexplained disappearance of Huey, Dewey, and Louie's mother and Donald's twin sister Della Duck.

CastEdit

ProductionEdit

Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones grew up watching the original series and had always wanted to develop an updated version for a newer generation. Youngberg said, "We're hoping that in thirty years, the kids who watch our show will then be bringing back the next version of DuckTales because they loved what we did so much."[9]

In May 2015, Terry McGovern, the original voice of Launchpad McQuack, stated in an interview that the entire voice cast from the original series would not be returning for the reboot, which made him "heartsick" at the news.[10] The new voice cast for the series was revealed on December 16, 2016 in a video where they sing an a cappella version of the original theme song in promotion of the news.[11][12][13] The following May, Lin-Manuel Miranda was announced as the voice of Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera / Gizmoduck.[14] The character was changed to being Latino due to Lin-Manuel's heritage and because Angones felt that there were not enough positive Latino superheroes.[9] In June, more cast members, including Tony Anselmo reprising his role as Donald Duck, were announced,[15] and during the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, Disney announced that Darkwing Duck would also make an appearance in the TV series.[16]

The art style of the show is heavily influenced not just by Carl Barks' original Uncle Scrooge comics, but also some of Barks' paintings.[17][2] The theme song, written by Mark Mueller for the 1987 series, was re-recorded for the 2017 reboot.[18] It was arranged by Michael "Smidi" Smithand and TJ Stafford and sung by Felicia Barton.[19]

The family is celebrating Christmas, except for Scrooge and Dewey. In actuality though, Scrooge secretly goes back in time every Christmas to revisit his best parties with the Ghosts of Christmas Past (Jack McBrayer), Present (Bill Fagerbakke), and Future. However, he eventually realizes the real fun of Christmas is spending it with family and decides to go back to the present. Past, on the other hand, does not want to let go of their good times together and traps him in time, but Scrooge outsmarts him and escapes. Meanwhile Dewey, who secretly followed Scrooge to the past, ends up facing a wendigo with a younger Donald (Russi Taylor) and Della. They manage to capture it, after which it's revealed to be Past. Scrooge, who arrives to take Dewey back home, then makes up with Past and they all return to the present to spend Christmas with the family. Meanwhile on the Moon, Della gives everyone her best wishes as she continues to repair her spaceship.

After losing contact with Scrooge during her flight, Della crashes on the Moon. Now with a robotic leg and Gyro's Oxy-Chew gum – providing oxygen, water, and nutrients – Della starts working to get back to Earth. However, her efforts are hindered by a giant metal eating moon mite, and her ship needing gold to work again. Ten years later, still looking for gold, Della meets two aliens, Moonlanders named Gen. Lunaris and Lt. Penumbra (Lance Reddick & Julie Bowen). Following this, she befriends the mite, which turns out to be a mother finding food for her child. As Della prepares to accept her fate with no hope of getting off the moon, she is then invited to the aliens' hidden city, Tranquility, on the Moon's far side. Seeing that Tranquility has gold, Della finds herself closer to Earth and her boys.
