While I was at D23Expo, I officially found the way very best way to start everyday…jumping in to a money pit! 😉 It was so much fun. However, climbing out of a bunch of gold coins is actually a harder task than you may think, but then again why would anyone actually want to leave the money pit? Haha Check out my fun video when I got the opportunity to jump in and swim in Scrooge McDuck’s money bin!
Believe it or not I had a reason for jumping into the money pin, to celebrate the comeback of Duck Tales. That’s right this classic that is coming back. After not speaking to one another for ten years, Scrooge McDuck is reunited with Donald Duck after he and his three nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie move into McDuck Manor. The presence of the newcomers rekindles Scrooge’s spirit of adventure, leading the group to go on many new treasure-hunting expeditions, while the nephews and their new friend Webby uncover the truth behind what caused their uncles to become estranged and retire from adventuring.
While I was at D23Expo I got the chance to screen the first episode of “DuckTales”. It will officially premiere August 12. We were some of of the very first people to see the final 22 minute episode put together. Whether you were a Duck Tales fan in the past or just now getting into it, either way you are going to love it. The animations are great and the characters were so adorable. If you have kids, I’m positive they will absolutely love it.
In this episode I thought the story line was not only intriguing, but I loved that we still get that classic “Duck Tales” feel, with a fun modern spin. I personally liked the variety of characters. Each one was not only visually unique, but their voices were also fun and memorable.
Not only did we screen the first episode, but we watched it with Executive Producer Matt Youngberg and Co-Producer / Story Editor Francisco Angones I will be sharing that Q&A closer to the release date. Trust me, you’ll want to come back for it.
If you know me at all, there is one thing I love when people talk about their projects and that is their passion. It was obvious within just a few minutes that these men had worked extremely hard and are truly pursing their dreams all while creating a wonderful series many will enjoy.
Don’t forget to tune into the first episode of Duck Tales when it premieres of August 12. Also, make sure to check back as I will be sharing more details before the first episode airs. You can also follow along with “Duck Tales” on social media.
And I’ll leave you with this… if you ever get the chance to jump in a pit full of money, do it. 🙂
