Hold onto your safari hats! Here’s our first glimpse of the new DuckTales

Current D&D Campaign Adventures - Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden

DUCKTALES - Disney's "DuckTales," an all-new animated comedy series based on the Emmy Award-winning series, will again star Disney's enduringly popular characters: Scrooge McDuck, his grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Donald Duck. Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is set to debut in 2017 on Disney XD. (Disney XD)

DuckTales is coming back to television in 2017, and now for the first time since last year’s duck-tacular announcement we have our first actual glimpse of the long-awaited reboot.

It isn’t much, but it’s enough to whet a fan’s appetite for “tales of derring-do bad and good luck tales,” as the classic theme goes. Disney revealed the artwork this week in concert with the D23 fan club convention.

The single, out-of-context frame evokes the retro stylings of legendary comic artist Don Rosa, who along with the great Carl Barks defined the fine-feathered style of our treasure-hunting crew eventually adopted by the early-’90s’s Disney Afternoon animated series. Here we see self-made quadrillionaire Scrooge McDuck, nephew Donald and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, and young ward Webby, no doubt on the trail of some lost relics (or relish — trust me, true fans will get the joke). I think I even see the trusty old Junior Woodchuck Guidebook.

There are so many unforgettable DuckTales episodes from my childhood that I can’t wait to share the adventures of Uncle Scrooge and his entourage when the series hits Disney XD next year. (Next year!)
