this sign made me laugh

Here it is, the long-awaited trailer for DT 2017! 

This is more than we were hoping for, folks, and my hopes were pretty high.

Here are my scattered thoughts on the trailer:

I love the angle the series seems to be taking, which isn’t too far from the original series or the Barks and Rosa stories. Scrooge is a mystery to Huey, Dewey, and Louie. They’ve only heard the legends, but little do they know that he’s still an amazing adventurer, that he’s “tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties” (glad they included that all-important character-establishing line in the trailer).

Strangely enough, Scrooge’s voice, while distinctly different from the classic series, is close enough to not be all that jarring. It sounds like David Tennant is a worthy successor to Alan Young, much in the same way Chris Pine as Captain Kirk is a worthy successor to William Shatner. Different voices (although Young and Tennant both have tons of energy and vivacity), but similar enough you don’t think the character is different. That’s key to recasting any role played by one actor for ages. 

Fantastic job, DT creative team!

I know this is only a 90-second trailer, but I think the nephews and Webby are going to be the biggest adjustment for me. In this teaser, they’re kinda loud and annoying at times, but I think I see the real characters in some of the snippets of dialogue we hear. For example, after finding out he’s taking them to stay with Scrooge, at least for the weekend, Louie says to Donald, “You’re finally going to sell us.” That made me laugh out loud.

I do hope the writers have given the nephews and Webby genuine moments of humanity (strange to say that about ducks, I know). Their “realness” in the original series was key to their appeal. Based on what I’m seeing here and what Frank Angones has said, though, I don’t think we’re in danger of DT 2017 misfiring too much, if at all. 

A few other notes:

Donald and Scrooge are as fascinating as ever. I wonder if they have a prior relationship in this version of the series, and I wonder if they’re estranged. 

I love the Barks paintings on the walls of Scrooge’s mansion. Nice Easter Egg, DT creative team. 

Webby recognizes who the nephews are and seems to view them as celebrities. Curious and curiouser… 

I love when Webby calls Donald “one of the most daring adventurers of all time.” Glad he’s getting his due as something other than a foul-tempered fowl. 

We see Launchpad at the end of the trailer in another character-establishing moment (which the trailer excels at, BTW). Launchpad made me laugh. That’s a good sign for Beck Bennett’s take on the character.

The updated theme song packs a punch and made me feel five all over again, giving me that sense of anticipation I used to get (and still get with the DVDs) whenever DuckTales began each afternoon. It’s the perfect blend of contemporary music stylings and nostalgia. 

I love that this series is about family. That was so important to the original DT and made it one of the less preachy, but more impactful series of the 80s and 90s because it demonstrated how a family works and how a family includes everyone who is close to you, not just your blood relatives. 

Finally, adventure, adventure, adventure. The action, coupled with all of the character moments in the trailer, was invigorating and chilling and thrilling and almost made me cry, lol. My gosh, I’m so excited for DT 2017! And I think the kids will be, too! My two-year-old nephew watched the trailer and kept exclaiming, “More DuckTales! More DuckTales!”

No wonder Disney has already renewed it for a second season…

What are your thoughts? Which Easter Eggs did I miss? Anyone have a copy of the premiere episode they’d like to leak to me? Are the Russians still into DuckTales? ;-)

I told him the biggest secret
And he told me four
He smiled at me and said that makes me love you more
And then he made me laugh
And I knew it was a sign
That he was a man
That I wanted in my life
And with every passing day
I feel more and more of that way
He heals me
He knows the real me
And he accepts me, he never hurts me
He heals me
He knows the real me
And he accepts me, he never hurts me
He heals me
He heals me

☠️ too good at messing with my emotions

Aww, that’s very…I want to say sweet but I’ll sound somewhat sadistic, won’t I? In any case, I assure that my emotions are getting just as messed as yours, lol. I constantly upset myself, so we’re all often feeling the same thing! ^.^

62,75,and 101 with Jax of course 😍pleaseeee

62 “That came out wrong. 75 “Guess who’s going to be a father?”

I’ve been waiting for two weeks to tell Jax the news, the club was in a really deep mess and the boys have been out and about those two weeks trying to fix things up but finally it seemed like things were working out and I was going to be able to tell Jackson the news.

Chibs, Tig and Juice were the top three guys closest to me at the club so I managed to tell them and ask them for help to give Jax a cool surprise and tell him about the little bean we created. They told me they were going to plan something out, that I shouldn’t worry about it and that they were going to do something really nice for their soon to be little nephew or niece so I just agreed to it and decided to take a day out at the Spa to get over the stress of this two weeks of waiting and waiting.

I arrived at the club 10 minutes before Jax was supposed to come back with Happy and Bobby, the boys were nowhere to be seen so I just sat at the bar and chatted for a little bit with Chucky who was really delighted by the news, I fixed my clothes, I wasn’t really showing much at the moment but I still put my hands over my belly caressing the bundle of joy inside of me. I heard the motorcycles approach and I started walking out when three men stepped out running to the garage.

The scene in front of me was too much, Juice was wearing nothing but a gigantic diaper and a pacifier while Chibs and Tig holded a signed “Congratulations Daddy” which made me start laughing like crazy, Juice looked around terrified when he noticed not only Jax, Bobby and Happy but a whole another chapter looking at the scene in front of them.

“What the fuck?” said Bobby and the three dummies looked at each other.

“Well that came out wrong” said Chibs looking at Tig, Juice and the chapter in front of them.

“What are you even doing?” said Jax who still didn’t notice me in the back.

“Guess who’s going to be a daddy?” I said finally stepping out to stop the boys from embarrassing themselves even more, Jax eyes immediately lit up after hearing my words and he rushed to me to pick me up and give me a big kiss.

“Is this for real?” he said and I nodded before showing him the ultrasound and him kissing me over and over again all over my face.

“Yes, Jax. A mini Teller is going to be with us soon” I said and all the boys congratulated both of us, a lot of hugs and love being shared that day.

“Next time I’d rather have you tell me instead of Juice in diapers” he said in between laughs and I laughed with him.

“They want it to make it a cool surprise” I said “I think it didn’t come out as expected”

“Still the best news ever, love” he said before kissing me one more time.

how i see each sign (cancer 🌙)
  • aries: you're always laughing, or talking to someone. you're usually pretty popular, but i know you and me don't mix well together. trust me, i've had some experiences. you're able to stand up and defend yourself so easily, and i admire that. you can get really moody though. try to control your emotions as much as possible.
  • taurus: you're super easy to talk to. i always click with you guys because we're able to understand each other so easily. you guys always have the best advice too. my best friend is a taurus, and i love her so much. you can get super stubborn though. try to let things go, and not hold a grudge.
  • gemini: you're super popular, and i always see you involved in some kind of drama. everyone likes hanging out with you, but i feel like nobody has really seen the real you deep inside. open up to people you trust, and don't be so scared that they'll judge you. you're so beautiful, and everyone should know that.
  • cancer: you're so sweet and people love you because of your kind personality. children are magically attracted to you, and you're just so generous. you're super likable, but i feel like someone always has to be there for you. try being independent and just appreciate who you are.
  • leo: well what can i say. you dream of having the spotlight shine on you, and most of the times, it is. you're super social and you're all so funny. you're pretty much the only sign that's made me laugh so hard, but you and i, like aries, don't mix well together. but please don't start any drama whether you think it's fun or not.
  • virgo: you're so sweet, and even if times are hard, you stick with me. even though people treat you wrong, you still stay with them and that makes me sad because you deserve so much better. i promise you'll meet better people along the way.
  • libra: you're super giving, and you're so loyal to your friends. you laugh really easily at my crappy jokes, and that makes me feel special lmao. but a lot of people try to take advantage of you. defend yourself when you need to.
  • scorpio: you're so misunderstood because you're actually really sweet to your friends and people you care about in general. you're super nice, but you have a tendency to admire from afar when you should really just talk to the person you want to be friends with.
  • sagittarius: you're so funny, and i love your bubbly personality. you're honesty is so refreshing, but it can also hurt a lot of people's feelings because you don't know when to stop. you get irritated a lot, but you get over it quickly. you can be annoying too at times, but everything about you makes it up.
  • capricorn: you're so smart and logical! you always have a plan b, c, or even d. you're always ready to strike, and people look up to you. you're super nice too. but your bluntness can be a bit hurtful, and you tend to be super closed off. express your feelings whenever you need to.
  • aquarius: god, all of you are just so good looking. you're really funny, and you can spark a conversation with anyone. you're personality is just so charming. i've had so many crushes on aquarius's. but you can super stubborn, and your god complex is really a turn off. let it go once in a while.
  • pisces: you're all so nice to me, and you make me feel as though we're already best friends. you're able to make everyone feel so special, but you have a tendency to get hurt easily. brush it off and just ignore it because the other person probably didn't mean to hurt you.
