You (Will) Know The Voice(s): Meet the cast of the new DuckTales

You probably know by now that Disney is reviving DuckTales in time for the series' 30th anniversary next year. The new version will air on DisneyXD, and one must hope that the original will resurface as well for the sake of nostalgia.

In a case of "getting to know you", the new cast gave it a go performing the familiar theme song. The cast includes David Tennant (ex-Doctor Who, Jessica Jones), Kate Micucci (ex-Raising Hope), and Saturday Night Live's Beck Bennett (the former AT&T pitchman who did those Linkletteresque ads with the kiddo's) and Bobby Moynihan.

No debut date insofar as I know, but ya gotta believe the anticipation will reach fever pitch before long. Tennant, in particular, will assume the role of Scrooge McDuck, previously played by the late Alan Young. Stay tuned.

They know exactly who will be watching this show - the same people who remember the original series fondly. The cast is entirely composed of actors popular with that demographic. It's surprisingly astute of Disney, I hope it helps the show's success.

At least they're not trying to insult their audience the way their competition (i.e. Cartoon Network) does.
