Life is like a hurricane in Duckberg, and nobody knows it better than Scrooge McDuck; the millionaire codger was a  character children fell in love with while watching Disney’s Saturday morning classic, DuckTales. The show premiered in 1987, and was so successful that it led to a feature film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and two highly successful video games (one of which was remastered not too long ago). DuckTales (and spin-offs DarkWing Duck and Quack Pack) has since remained a nerdy fan favorite (even resulting in some disturbing deconstructions). Last year, Disney realized how sorely the franchise was missed, and moved ahead to revive the show with a reboot on Disney XD. Now the time for nostalgia is nearly at hand. Disney has released the shows updated theme song, new images, and a premier date!  (more…)

For all the crude humour that was clearly directed at adults, Guardians of the Galaxy had all the right ingredients to be a hit for all the family. As well as the hotly anticipated sequel due for release later on this year, the movie inspired a spinoff series on the kids’ channel Disney XD starring its two most kid-friendly characters, Rocket and Groot. As is often the way with these things, the cartoon was just as popular with adults as with children. It was announced last year at Comic Con that that show would extend to a 12-part web series.

For people of a certain age, there are a lot of fond memories for DuckTales, the highlight of the Disney Afternoon block alongside Chip ‘N’ Dale’s Rescue Rangers, TaleSpin and Darkwing Duck. So now nostalgia fever has struck Disney XD, which will be launching a reboot of DuckTales later this year, and while we might cynically say that there’s no way that the channel can recapture the fun and adventure of the original Tales, you will now be dared not to hum along to the theme in eager anticipation. Disney has just released a new trailer, and it will have you eagerly awaiting more tales of ducks that seek treasure. (more…)

Consider Yourself Teased for the ‘DuckTales’ Reboot

If you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, then chances are that DuckTales was a pretty big part of your life. The series launched in the fall of 1987 and was part of the Disney Afternoon line-up for years culminating in 100 episodes and a big screen adventure called DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. If you miss those golden days, or wish you could share them with the child in your life, there’s good news because Disney is bringing DuckTales back next summer in an all-new series on Disney XD, and below you can watch the very teasing teaser.

It was much to the disappointment of the small but dedicated band of Agent Carter fans that the series was cancelled by ABC earlier this year. For two seasons, the 1940s-set adventures of SSR Agent Peggy Carter as she saved the world despite the chauvinistic attitudes of her superiors and co-workers gave many Marvel fans the female hero they wanted and needed, and for a time, it was good, but not good enough it seems. Well, for all those missing Agent Carter it will do your heart good to know that Agent Carter herself will be back in the very near future, and while you won’t be able to see Hayley Atwell in the role, you’ll at least be able to hear her.

Star Wars fans lost their collective minds when it was announced at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year that non-canonical, fan favorite villain, Grand Admiral Thrawn, would be appearing in the 3rd season of Star Wars: Rebels. Back when Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise, it was announced that everything outside of the 6 films, The Clone Wars TV show, and Star Wars: Rebels would not be considered canon. This effectively cast aside the countless books, comics, and video games that contributed to the Star Wars lore in the years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Among those elements that didn’t survive Disney’s version of Order 66 was Thrawn, who first appeared in Heir to the Empire written by Timothy Zahn. (more…)

rebels season 3 1

Star Wars Rebels has become a fan favorite show among the legion of Star Wars fans. The show largely filled the gap that was left after the cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which was rushed off air so quickly the final season became a Netflix exclusive). The show is comprised of largely the same team, following the same art style who have actually managed to close a few plot threads from the other show—however, while Clone Wars followed young Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker between the Episode II and III films, the new series is set years later, showing the formation of the early Rebel alliance pre-Episode IV. The show has been successful enough that it is already gearing up for the third season.

Big Hero 6 did quite well at the Box Office, more than enough to guarantee a sequel, but in a surprise move, Disney is taking the Marvel animated series to the small screen. Big Hero 6 will become an animated series on Disney XD in 2017, picking up right after the events of the movie in which Hiro and company save the city. (more…)
