Scrooge McDuck may be the coolest uncle on earth, in large part because he never turns down a chance for adventure. That, and he’s got a massive vault full of gold coins that is large enough to swim in. Ducktales is back, and better than ever.
The 2017 revival of the 1980s hit is as captivating as it is star-studded. Doctor Who star David Tennant provides the role of Uncle Scrooge, with accompanying voice talents of Dani Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci, and Beck Bennet. The magic of the original run is there, complete with the best theme song of all time.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Ducktales.

What the critics are saying
- “The new generation of kids who will be introduced to Duckburg through this series may not have the history to appreciate the way these characters have become far more vibrant and relevant, but that isn’t necessary. DuckTales is brisk and playful romp from start to finish with plenty of cheeky details.” –Hanh Nguyen, Indiewire
- “Funnier, more ambitious. … Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, and Bobby Moynihan were well-cast as the trio, giving the boys a jocky fraternal chemistry. … Meanwhile, David Tennant is doing longtime Scrooge-voice Alan Young proud.” Darren Franich, Entertainment Weekly
