Well, there’s a few factors that come into play here.
For starters, voice acting—namely that of Alan Young and June Foray. They’re both well into their 90s and while they did a good job on DuckTales Remastered
in their respective roles (Scrooge and Magica), I can’t see them putting in the work for a multi-episode animated series at their ages. So you’d need new VAs for both of them. And since Alan Young owns the role of Scrooge, I don’t know how anyone else could live up to his standard. Oh, and while the Remastered
team did their best to find Other Darrins for the roles whose VAs had died (most notably Gizmoduck), they still felt ‘off’, and the same effect could happen to the new series.
But the real dealbreaker will be the animation. DuckTales 2017
won’t be animated like its predecessor—but will it be 2D animation like Gravity Falls
or 3D animation like every single horrible 3D show Disney’s ever put out? And how high a quality of animation is Disney willing to put forward for this show, knowing there’s going to be a lot of eyes on it?
I’m kinda hype about this, but I’ve learned to stay cautious. After all, I asked for a Rescue Rangers
revival, and Disney granted my wish…with an in-the-works CGI/live-action film.
