Disney Channel has ordered a third season of the Emmy Award-nominated series “DuckTales” prior to its season two premiere SATURDAY, OCT. 20 (7:30 a.m., EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD. The series stars David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (“Community”) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live”) as Louie, Kate Micucci (“Garfunkel and Oates”) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (“Saturday Night Live”) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (“Castle”) as Mrs. Beakley and Disney Legend Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck.

News of the season three pick-up was revealed today in a video featuring Pudi, Schwartz and Moynihan recording together for the first time. 

Season two guest stars include Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), Edgar Wright (“Baby Driver” director), Jack McBrayer (“30 Rock”), John Hodgman (“Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches”), Jameela Jamil (“The Good Place”), Libe Barer (“Sneaky Pete”) and Lance Reddick (“John Wick”).

“DuckTales” reached nearly 100 million views on social media and digital platforms in its first season. Brand extensions for the series include toys, books, apparel, plush and collectibles from Disney Parks, Experiences & Consumer Products, with new products debuting spring 2019.

The animated comedy-adventure series chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s newfound fierce friend. 

“DuckTales” is executive-produced by Emmy Award-nominated Matt Youngberg (“Ben 10: Omniverse”), with Emmy Award-nominated Francisco Angones (Disney XD’s “Wander Over Yonder”) serving as co-producer and story editor, and Sean Jimenez (Disney’s “Gravity Falls”) as art director. The series is a production of Disney Television Animation and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.


The Walt Disney Company Announces $1 Million Donation to Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley

In 1995, the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley began in an old firehouse just up the road from The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California; and now, more than two decades later, the Club serves thousands of young people every year in six different Southern California cities, including Burbank, North Hollywood, North Hills, Van Nuys, Sun Valley and Hollywood. Today the Club announced that The Walt Disney Company is making a $1 million dollar investment in the organization through a donation that will provide the funds needed to build a new Main Club facility and give 400 Boys & Girls Club members a safe place to go after school.

Club supporters, City of Burbank stakeholders, Burbank Unified School District personnel, political representatives and special guests joined Boys & Girls Club CEO Shanna Warren and The Walt Disney Company Senior Vice President, Enterprise Social Responsibility Elissa Margolis for today’s announcement during an event held on the site where the Club will be built. The brand-new facility, which is expected to be completed by fall of 2020, will be a two-story, 16,000-square-foot space with two multi-purpose rooms, a games room, creative arts space, STEM lab, teen club, two learning centers, teaching kitchen, conference room and garden/roof patio.

“The Walt Disney Company is pleased to make this contribution and fund the construction of a new main club facility,” said Margolis, senior vice president, Enterprise Social Responsibility for The Walt Disney Company. “The impact of this new club will more than double the number of members served by The Boys & Girls Club and provides a safe place that meets the diverse needs of our local youth.”

The Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley’s mission is to help every child reach their full potential, focusing on academic success, healthy lifestyles, character and leadership through a variety of programs—including the only Deaf and Hard of Hearing program in the area. The Club will share the new facility with Burbank Unified School District, and the project has been a joint effort between the two organizations.

“For the last 10 years, we have been on a journey to acquire a new main club facility that meets our ever expanding needs,” said Warren. “Because of The Walt Disney Company’s confidence in the Club and financial support, we have just taken a major step forward in making our dream come true.”
