DuckTales cast

Meet the new DuckTales cast, featuring David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck!

Featured, Television, Top story

Alan Young sadly left us recently, so he won’t be part of the new DuckTales cast — but today we know who will be stepping into his safari sandals this summer as mega-quackzillionaire “Unca” Scrooge McDuck: David Tennant, as in the former star of Doctor Who!

Tennant long had to suppress his native accent on Doctor Who, but as McDuck he will at last be able to let his Scot flag fly.

As you can see in this fun introductory music video set to the timeless DuckTales theme song, joining Tennant are: Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as mischievous nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie; Beck Bennett as flustered flyboy Launchpad McQuack; Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley; and Kate Micucci (aka the new Velma from the latest Scooby-Doo incarnation) as Webby Vanderquack.

This is really happening.
