Jim Hill: 'Ducktales' Reboot is CG-Animated, 'Darkwing Duck' and 'Kim Possible' Reboots Could Follow
A Disney expert dishes on some unconfirmed heresay regarding rebooted properties from Disney TVA.
“With Ducktales, Jim Hill reportedly tells us that the reboot will be CG-animated. This isn’t exactly official confirmation, but it would seem as if the decision for the show to be CG was made internally and decisively. He also mentions that top-tier talent from other shows (Batman: The Animated Series in particular) are being brought in to steer the creative direction of the new Ducktales.
But that’s not all. If Jim’s word is to be believed, Disney has a ‘shortlist’ of properties that they want to revisit if the new Ducktales pans out. On that list is a CG-animated Kim Possible and even Darkwing Duck, a cult favorite that will soon return as a new comic book series.
In the case of Kim Possible, creators Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle had actually pitched the idea of a CG-animated reboot to Disney a few times, even going so far as to get Chris Bailey (who directed the pilot) to do a CG-animated ‘proof of concept’ that served as a reworking of the original pilot.”
