Disney’s DuckTales reboot has been on our radar for the best part of a year and as excited as we were for the return of Scrooge McDuck and the gang, we just got even more excited…

Disney have just revealed the cast for the new series and in a stroke of genius, Doctor Who star David Tennant has been cast as Scrooge McDuck!

How inspired is that?!

As well as Tennant, Community star Danny Pudi is in there as well as Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as Huey, Duey, and Louie, respectively.

Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and Kate Micuccias as Webby Vanderquack fill out the full cast and it’s a darned good selection of talent.

Check out the awesome video below of the new cast singing the theme tune. And try not to sing along…

DuckTales is set to premiere in the summer of 2017 on Disney XD.

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….
