    Well no promises but I will reach out to Toks. If that doesn't work, I will bug her husband Sean which is how I know her. Give her a few days as she has to get it past her publicist and what not.

    You may not treasure the English version as much as I do since you grew up with it and got used to it, but the first time I heard the English lyrics in their entirety it felt like a huge revelation, and ever since then I have refused to watch that show in any other language than English.

    Same thing can be said about the Disney characters themselves, by the way - the names "Donald Duck", "Scrooge McDuck", "Glandstone Gander", "Gus Goose" etc are perfect, I really like those frequent allitterations and how their surnames define what animals they are supposed to be, and none of those two things are anywhere near as common in the Swedish versions - there are hardly any allitterations at all, and only a handful of the characters have "animal surnames".
    And the "Beagle Boys" got messed up as well and were confused with bears for some reason.
    The Dutch names were pretty on point as well: Donald duck, Dagobert Duck (scrooge, for some reason not Mc), Guus Gans, etc. They basically kept the names that would change too much the same, and the others they changed to the Dutch version. The song even worked pretty well.

    Still, English version is better. I still need to find those "The life of Scrooge Mcduck 1-10" comics somewhere. The one we had were all torn up from reading.

    The life of Scrooge McDuck is a fantastic series.

    Hopefully he sounds like the original Scrooge though.
    Probably not, as he'll actually sound scottish, unlike the original scrooge

    Yeah I do understand some Dutch actually, since I used to study German a lot back in school and Dutch is quite similar to German - and some of my favourite YouTube videos happen to have Dutch speakers, which motivated me to practise that language a bit as well - and I checked the Dutch lyrics a while ago, and they seemed cool;
    some of the parts were very similar to the English lyrics, and then I think there was also a line like "All that you have ever dreamed about happens in DuckTales" or something like that.

    I've yet to see a good reboot of a cartoon from my childhood but here's hoping.

    It's nice to see that the majority of you seem to be looking positively at this (though, I respect the opinion of those who aren't). I think remakes/reboots/adaptations should be looked at positively myself, as they usually aren't made to spite the original or anything. I think doing your own take on something can be fun, so maybe at least some of the people who have done remakes/reboots/adaptation feel the same way?
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you canít think of anything other than that one person...

    I have never seen the original, but seeing Bobby Moynihan and Beck Bennett in this kind of makes me wanna see this since I love both of those guys so much!

    That looks pretty cool! Glad they're obviously unafraid to deviate from the original series to some extent, that's a good way to dissuade people from getting too hung up on comparisons.

    Looks pretty good actually. So far it appears to be capturing the spirit of the original without simply being a carbon copy of it.

    I watched the original when I was little, but couldn't remember much at all, and started to re-watch the older one today- the original is worth watching imo just for the experience. The animation is very cute and child-friendly, but then has moments like a mind- controlled Donald telling somebody to fed his own nephews to be eaten alive by vultures, and a shadow of Scrooge being strangled and the shadow of his body struggling and then flopping to the ground.

    The original is pretty wild.
