Darkwing Duck Returns in Ducktales Reboot With a Sneak Peek Shown at SDCC (VIDEO)
San Diego Comic Con is this weekend and now, more than ever, it is apparent that the film and television industries present there are highly seeking to bring back the long lost franchises that children of the 80’s and 90’s grew up on. As those generations enter adulthood and, for some, pass on the classics of the past to the new generation. The final season of Samurai Jack brought back the Japanese warrior to Cartoon Network, while Nickelodeon is producing new Rocko’s Modern Life and Hey Arnold TV specials. We have also known that Disney has been readying a new Ducktales animated series, but at Comic Con this weekend we now have a new clip as well as confirmation that Darkwing Duck will appear.
The clip seen above premiered at the Ducktales San Diego Comic Con panel and is now available on the Disney XD YouTube channel. The clip shows Scrooge McDuck, Launchpad McQuack, Webby, Huey, Dewey and Louie embarking on a naval adventure in a submarine. Presumably, this clip takes place early on in the new series as Uncle Scrooge has trouble remembering his nephews’ names, or perhaps he simply hasn’t formed enough of a bond with them yet to care what their names are.
Aside from the premiere of the clip seen above, it was also confirmed that Darkwing Duck, the titular vigilante of the Ducktales corresponding spin-off series would indeed make an appearance. It sure sounds like these new adventures are going to Get Dangerous! What do you guys think about this new clip and the return of Darkwing Duck? Let us know in the comments below!
