UK: David Tennant Stars In Series 3 Of DuckTales, Coming To Disney XD UK This Month

The third series of Disney's much celebrated reboot of their classic animated series DuckTales launches on Disney XD in the UK later this month. Starting from Monday 15th June, episodes will premiere at 5.30pm BST every weekday with a repeat showing at 8.00pm.

David Tennant stars as adventuring billionaire Scrooge McDuck in the reboot of the classic 1980s animated series. Co-starring Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as mischievous triplets Huey, Dewey and Louie, Kate Micucci as their fearless friend Webby, Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck, Toks Olagundoye as faithful housekeeper Mrs Beakley and Beck Bennett as inept pilot Launchpad McQuack, the series sees the Duck family embarking on globe-trotting adventures and treasure hunts, and uncovering family secrets along the way.

Series 3 will feature appearances by classic Disney characters Daisy Duck, Goofy and favourites from TaleSpin, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck. The new season finds the Duck family embarking on a globetrotting hunt for the world’s greatest lost artifacts, with a secret organization from Scrooge’s past, the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny (F.O.W.L.), trying to stop them at any cost.
