@blak89:

It sounds to me (repeat: to me) like you want it to be more like Gravity Falls (well, that's what you're implying, anyway). [...]
What I meant is that Gravity Falls has been a game-changer for Disney XD in terms of writing, story-telling and overall quality.

The original Ducktales already had brilliant story-telling and adventures.
Not surprisingly, it has a lot of potential for amazing myth/story-arcs and character development.
Which it is probably what they're going for (imho), based on the success of the "plot-heavy" Gravity Falls.

Yet I think the character designs defaultly prevent it. Anything that looks like those Micky Mouse shorts... is really hard to imagine as something more robust and be taken that way. Unless they don't just copy/paste the style and instead tailor it. Gravity Falls looks mature and serious. Mickey Mouse shorts... not so much. In fact they look quite childish. It suits them, even though the original is superior, but DuckTales deserves and needs much more than that.

I wouldn't say it looks EXACTLY like the mickey shorts: The color pallet looks like it'd be a bit more subdued. and Honestly I'd say that color pallet is the biggest reason why gravity falls doesn't look "kiddy"

Am I the only one who thinks that the original DuckTales doesn't hold up well?
No, they started running out of good ideas by the end of the first season, then introduced new characters in season 2 to try to keep the series going.

I liked Fenton / Gizmoduck, but I can't tolerate any episodes focused on Bubba at all anymore.

(english isnt my native) I really hope Huey Dewey And Louie have their Characters development really well... I kinda imagine their personality are mixture from the classic cartoons (bratty), Ducktales (Extremely Smart for young ducks like them) and Quack pack

Huey - Oldest, so he'll be the one who incharge

Dewey - We all know he's the smart one, i just hope he's not going to be such a total "Nerd"

Louie - He's the sweetest between them three, so he's going to be the heart


as for weeby, i kinda guessing she'll be all grown up and not being annoying like before.. Im not saying she'll act like an adult for her personality, i was guessing she'll be more mature. And not too girlish

When i heard the news that ducktales is coming back, i was freaked out, I didn't expected that this could happen.

Anyway, as a fan of Ducktales..i really am excited to see how's going to be,
I'm really hoping that this show will hold up well.
Honestly, the classic ducktales IMO doesn't hold up very well.. Sometimes the story's way to ridiculous, silly, And confusing.

I wish that ducktales reboot will be better than the classic one, that'll be awesome as hell

(Mod Note: Merging this thread with the main DuckTales thread.)

More new teaser art courtesy of D23.

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot the linked article also reveals the new creative team.
Scrooge McDuck, grandnephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, and Donald Duck will, of course, star in the new series, which will be executive-produced by Annie Award nominee Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse). Rounding out the creative team are story editor and co-producer Francisco Angones (Disney XD’s Emmy®-nominated Wander Over Yonder) and art director Sean Jimenez (Disney XD’s Annie Award-winning Gravity Falls).

i love the art design so far! i feel like this show could be more adventure focused then comedy but who knows. Im just hoping they dont make it as dumbed down and insultingly simple as The 7D
