The trailer is a shot of nostalgia for anyone who was around for the original series' 1987-1990 run. Scrooge McDuck is back, this time voiced by David Tennant, but with his love for diving into pools of gold intact. He will again be joined by his mischievous grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie along with Donald Duck, Webby Vanderquack, Launchpad McQuack and Mrs. Beakley on ventures 'round the world.
The rest of the flock is voiced by an all-star cast, counting SNL players Beck Bennett as Launchpad and Bobby Moynihan as Louie. Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) will voice Dewey, and Danny Pudi (Community) will voice Huey. Tony Anselmo is back as Donald Duck.
And yes, that theme song, which is still in our heads after 27 years off the air, is in the trailer. It has been re-recorded with a chorus for a different sound, but it is no less addictive.
