I am playing Dewey in the new Ducktales TV show! DUCKTALES IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE TV SHOWS OF ALL TIME! I grew up on these characters. In elementary school, I would race home after school every day, make mac and cheese (I wasn’t lactose intolerant yet) and watch the Disney Afternoon at David and Jose Fernandez’s house in Riverdale. We watched the show, played the Nintendo game, re-watched the movie, all of it. My ringtone a few years ago was the Moon theme from the Ducktales video game which maybe one person ever got. So, I am incredibly excited to be a part of this show. A few hours ago, they announced the main cast and it’s magic. Scrooge McDuck- David Tennant, Huey- Danny Pudi, Dewey- Me, Louie- Bobby Moynihan, Webby Vanderquack- Kate Micucci, Launchpad McQuack- Beck Bennett, Mrs. Beakley- Toks Olagundoye and you will be pumped to find out who is playing the amazing guest cast for Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Gyro Gearloose, Duckworth, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, and Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys. I can’t wait for this thing to come out. Frank Angones and Matthew Youngberg are gonna make you smile. For now you can watch us all sing the theme song above. Woo-oo!
the star-studded cast was just announced––and it’s pretty impressive. To give you a taste of just how special the roster is, David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones) was brought on to voice Scrooge McDuck! Danny Pudi (Community, Star Trek Beyond), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation, BoJack Horseman), and Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) will be playing Huey, Dewey, and Louie respectively.
The rest of the cast will be rounded out by: Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle, The Neighbors) as Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci (Milo Murphy’s Law) as Webby Vanderquack.
The other characters slated to make a return are: Donald Duck, Flintheart Glomgold, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Gizmoduck, Magica DeSpell, Gladstone Gander, Ma Beagle, and the Beagle Boys.

Other characters from the original, including Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Launchpad McQuack, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell and Poe, Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys (Burger Beagle, Bouncer Beagle), Mrs. Beakley and Webbigail Vanderquack, are also set to return.
“DuckTales’ has a special place in Disney’s TV animation history, it drew its inspiration from Disney Legend Carl Barks’ comic books and through its storytelling and artistic showmanship, set an enduring standard for animated entertainment that connects with both kids and adults,” said Marc Buhaj, SVP, programming and general manager, Disney XD, in a statement. “Our new series will bring that same energy and adventurous spirit to a new generation.”
