Disney Plus is filling up with new spins on old favorites. Now this classic 90’s TV series is up for a reboot of its own.
Disney has had a string of reboots that primary involve taking a classic animated film and creating a live action rendition. Such was the case with Mulan, and soon Lilo and Stitch will join the trend.
The live action remakes are typically quite polarizing. People either love them or love to throw shade at them.
The response surrounding the reboot of the popular 90’s cartoon series DuckTales has been much less divided. Many parents have enjoyed watching their little ones enjoy a new spin on the show they grew up with.
Now, rumor has it that another 90’s cartoon series is about to join the mix. Recently, Variety reported that a project is in the works to reboot Darkwing Duck.
The rumor mill has also named Seth Rogan, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, and Alex McAtee as executive produces for the series. These are the creative minds behind Point Grey Pictures.
The original Darkwing Duck series aired from 1991-1992. It featured the adventures of citizen Drake Mallard, who transforms into duck superhero Darkwing Duck.
Darkwing Duck is a verbose character full of entertaining quips. He and his daughter Gosalyn spent 3 seasons and 91 episodes fighting crime in St. Canard, facing a string of dastardly villains like Megaduck, Quackerjack, and Bushroot..
The original series borrowed several popular characters from DuckTales including Launchpad McQuack and Gizmoduck. DuckTales Villains Flintheart Glomgold, Magica De Spell, and the Beagle Boys also had cameos.
Darkwing Duck and Gosalyn have already have already been reimagined once. Their roles were reprised for the new DuckTales series.
Perhaps these appearances can give fans a taste of what is to come when the characters get their own series. You can check out this clip from Disney XD and see for yourself.
