After months of speculation, fans old and new will be able to experience Disney’s new version of DuckTales when the show premieres on August 12 on the Disney Channel.

For those sleeping under a rock, DuckTales chronicles the adventures of Duckburg’s trillionaire, Scrooge McDuck, his nephew Donald Duck and Donald’s nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. Along for the ride is McDuck’s staff: Lauchpad McQuack, housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and her granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack.

The premiere episode of DuckTales tells how Donald Duck reluctantly takes his nephews to meet the reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. While at McDuck Manor, they learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge’s epic past, sending the family to the Lost City of Atlantis.

This series is a reboot of the popular series of the same name that used to air from the 80’s and 90’s and features a new look that more closely resembles the classic Carl Barks’ come book designs. Each 22-minute episode follows the ducks on thrilling explorations as they embrace courage, creativity and the rewards of stepping outside your comfort zone. Disney says that the new series is for kids and kids-at-heart and will feature several nostalgic nods to the original show including special appearances from other beloved characters including Flintheart Glomgold, superhero Gizmoduck, mad scientist Gyro Gearloose, lucky duck Gladstone Gander, the ruthless Ma Beagle and the mask-wearing Beagle Boys, scientist Ludwig Von Drake and Scrooge’s old flame Goldie O’Gilt.

Tangled, the animated Rapunzel story from Walt Disney Animation will soon be getting the royal treatment as Disney is creating a new television series for Disney channel to begin airing in 2017. According to a press release from Disney Channel, Tangled: Before Ever After is said to be set in within the time frame between the ending of the original 2010 movie (where Rapunzel is rescued from her tower with the help of Flynn Rider, aka Eugene) and the beginning of the 2012 short, Tangled Ever After (where Rapunzel and Eugene are getting married.) Though born a princess, Rapunzel spent most of her life up in a tower and doesn’t really know how to be a princess nor does she know how to act to her subjects, the townspeople of Corona, which should allow for a lot of fun, new adventures.

Disney Creates New Mickey Mouse Cartoon Shorts

For a hardcore Disney fan, news doesn’t get much better than rumors that the studio is creating brand new Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts – except when the rumors are true.

Unlike the short created for the “House of Mouse” Saturday morning series, which were “okay,” or the new Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Playhouse Disney, these new shorts have the sensibility of the cartoons of the golden ages, with a modern, artistic flair. Actually, the cartoons have a sort of a 1930’s look to them but they are based in contemporary settings. The new shorts are really short too – about three and half minutes each.

Coming in late June, 19 new shorts featuring the mouse and friends will be shown on the Disney Channel and This Mickey features pie-cut shaped eyes, red shorts and yellow shoes, but has a decidedly different look. He is also a globetrotter with adventures in New York, Paris, Bejing, Venice and Santa Monica to name a few.

Mickey’s new adventures have been created by the Disney Television Animation team under the direction of Paul Rudish, who was the mastermind behind two of Cartoon Network’s biggest shows every, “Dexter’s Laboratory” and “The Powerpuff Girls.” Fortunately, the new shorts look and feel like they belong to Disney.

Disney gave viewers a sneak peek of one short,“Croissante de Triomphe” with every line spoken in French and features Mickey, Minnie, Daisy Duck and even a cameo of Cinderella. Minnie is seen working at a cafĂ© and runs out of croissants. It is up to Mickey to save the day. While there is much for adults to appreciate, the cartoon comes across more cute than funny, but your kids are going to love them.
