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?
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…
