    I had forgotten that this was coming back next year - and David Tennant will be voicing Scrooge McDuck

    Interesting assortment of actors. I know virtually all of them from other shows, and a lot have been very funny in their work. I wonder how they will do the voices.

    Ian happy Toks will be doing one of the voices. Her and her husband Sean are truly really good people.

    This is actually looking pretty good and I'm excited about it! I loved this show when I was about six.

    I was all up in arms about it until I saw this video - now I'm pretty stoked on it, which is a nice change

    This was my favorite cartoon when I was a little boy. I hope it does well.

    Can we get Tail Spin too!?

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    As long as they leave the song as is, I'll deal with a change in voices.

    I have always kind of envied English-speaking people for having grown up with the original English "DuckTales".
    The Swedish lyrics are okay and fairly catchy I guess, but they are nowhere near as good as the English lyrics IMO, and they don't even have that "DuckTales!" part in the beginning of the chorus.

    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", "Gladstone 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.

    Hopefully he sounds like the original Scrooge though.

    I know the lady who is going to voice Mrs. Beakley. It is the Lovley Toks Olagundoye. Should anyone be interested if I reached out to her for an EoFF Duck Tales fan question interview?
