So, a month or so ago (here) we reported that Disney were bringing back DuckTales and all seemed right in the world…

But, I don’t know about you, I thought we might get the original cast back to voice the much-loved characters. This seemed reasonable, no?

Well, no.

Launchpad voice actor Terry McGovern has gone on Facebook and declared that the cast will be replaced by Disney for the new series or, at the very least, he will.

“I am heartsick,” he wrote, “Bad news. This is not a life or death situation, but it feels like one. Disney is re-booting Ducktales. And, here’s the bad news for me and the rest of the original cast–they are RE-CASTING! A very sweet woman called me from their offices to impart this development just moments ago. It was considerate of them, but it was not what I wanted to hear. When she first introduced herself on the phone, that she was calling on behalf of Ducktales, I thought, WOW! THE BAND’S GETTING BACK TOGETHER! Alas, it’s going to be a new band. So…someone else will play Launchpad McQuack. I haven’t told Launchpad himself yet. He’s in the garage tinkering with the Thunderquack. I just don’t have the heart to tell him. But I will. Just don’t tell him until I do, OK? And thanks for your sympathy. I wish the new cast well.”

What did you guys think? Would you like to see the gang together again or do you feel new start, new cast? Let us know your thoughts…

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….
