New 'DuckTales' Cast Sings Theme Song, Including David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck

Yes indeed, the former Doctor Who star leads the voice cast of DuckTales as the wealthy patriarch of the McDuck family.

Disney XD announced the cast for its summer 2017 premiere of DuckTales, and either we bumped our heads on some coin diving into Scrooge McDuck money vault, or this is seriously the most impressive cast on television.

The trio of mischievous nephews will be voiced by Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan. Other cast members include Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack, and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley. "Ben 10: Omniverse" alum Matt Youngberg will serve as executive producer, while the story editor and co-producer is Francisco Angones ("Wander Over Yonder").

First Warning Forecast: Another round of showers, then bitterly cold
North West: Partly cloudy and warm to hot with scattered showers and thundershowers but isolated in the north-east . Today: A slight chance of rain and snow showers before 7am, then a slight chance of rain between 7am and 8am.

Last week Disney XD also released a very brief teaser for DuckTales, and while it isn't quite as exciting as this news, it's still worth a look.

To celebrate the announcement, Disney XD also released this awesome video of the voice cast signing along to the show's original theme.

The original Emmy-winning DuckTales ran from 1987-1990 as part of The Disney Afternoon daily cartoon block, which went on to spawn Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Talespin and 1990 theatrical movie, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.
