DuckTales First Trailer (Video)
The first official trailer for the new animated series reboot of DuckTales is out and the interwebs has gone crazy. We’ve been waiting quite a while to get our first glimpse of the actual animation and hear what the characters are going to sound like. There has been a ton of speculation on how the series would change and what might stay the same. The good news is all of our favorite characters are still here and it looks like the whole Duckberg gang will be going on a lot of awesome adventures. Even the old theme song managed to make it into this trailer.
All that being said I have to admit that I’m not very eager to watch this new series. Huey, Dewey, and Louie are more annoying than ever, the animation quality isn’t very good and seems to mimic some popular Cartoon Network shows, but worst of all is Scrooge McDuck’s voice. Long gone is the lovable Scottish accent that we all knew and loved, instead it has been replaced with something that sounds like McSquizzy from the movie Open Season. Sure it still sounds Scottish, but it’s easily one of the most forced and annoying accents in cartoon history.
I know this is an update for a new generation of kids but honestly I thought I would like it more than I do. I guess I’ll just have to reserve my full judgment for when the series actually comes out on Disney XD.
