The new animated comedy adventure DuckTales will premiere in a one-hour television movie to be presented for 24 consecutive hours, Saturday, August 12 (beginning at midnight EDT/PDT), on Disney XD. Then, the series will debut with two new episodes Saturday, September 23 (7:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT). Each will also be available on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD on these same dates. For the raft of DuckTales fans around the world, the August 12 movie is commonsensically titled "Woo-oo!." The September series premiere coincides with the 30th anniversary of the original Emmy Award-winning series. Beginning this year, DuckTales and its "Woo-oo!" movie will reach far and wide in 34 languages in 162 countries on Disney XD channels and Disney Channels worldwide.

A paddling of ducks helped announce the television movie premiere date on the official DuckTales Facebook page, which also debuted the series opening title and new rendition of the iconic theme song. Written by Mark C. Mueller, the song is performed by singer/songwriter Felicia Barton (Dancing with the Stars) and produced by Emmy Award-winning Michael 'Smidi' Smith (Coldplay, Sia, Britney Spears) and composer Dominic Lewis. It will be released by Walt Disney Records on Friday, June 23. Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks' comic designs, "DuckTales" chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg's most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews - Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet's newfound fierce friend. The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge's epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.

The voice cast is David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (Community) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) as Louie, Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle) as Mrs. Beakley and Tony Anselmo (Mickey Mouse) as Donald Duck. Recurring guest voices include Lin-Manuel Miranda as Duckburg's favorite hero Gizmoduck (his alias is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera), Allison Janney as Scrooge's old flame Goldie O'Gilt, Margo Martindale as the ruthless villain Ma Beagle, Paul F. Tompkins as lucky duck Gladstone Gander, Kimiko Glenn as well-traveled teen Lena, Jim Rash as mad scientist Gyro Gearloose, Josh Brener as tech billionaire Mark Beaks, Keith Ferguson as Scrooge's archenemy Flintheart Glomgold, Eric Bauza as Beagle Boys and Corey Burton as scientist Ludwig Von Drake.
