A second teaser image for the upcoming Ducktales reboot was released today.

The toon will hit Disney XD in 2017 with Matt Youngberg of Ben 10: Omniverse fame acting as executive producer, as well as co-producer/story editor Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) and Sean Jimenez, who had previously worked on Gravity Falls, as art director

The show, which is slated to hit the air in 2017, already has the same robust cast confirmed for the reboot. At the center of the show will be Scrooge McDuck; grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie and, of course, Donald Duck.

Aside from the main cast, we will also see many familiar faces return, such as Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, villains Ma Beagle and sons the Beagle Boys, Launchpad McQuack and of course, the lovable Webbigail Vanderquack.

If you are in the mood for a bit of nostalgia, but can’t wait the two years, classic episodes of Duck Tales can be found using the app WATCH Disney Channel.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
