During the Disney Channel’s annual panel at San Diego Comic-Con for DuckTales, surprise guest Lin-Manuel Miranda brought some additional surprises to fans in attendance. Miranda voices Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera/Gizmoduck in the acclaimed animated series, and he and his fellow co-stars revealed that they’ll be joined by new arrivals in the rest of Season 2 and the upcoming third season. And they should be rather recognizable characters, especially to 90s kids.
As EW reports, Daisy Duck, Goofy, and the 90s Disney Afternoon’s line-up of characters like Gadget, Chip, Dale, and Monterey Jack from Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers, older versions of Kit and Molly from TaleSpin, Gosalyn Mallard from Darkwing Duck, and many more will join the party over the rest of Season 2 and in Season 3. We thought that a few more character cameos might be coming to the reboot when Darkwing Duck‘s Drake Mallard and TaleSpin‘s Don Karnage showed up in earlier installments, but we never thought it would be this all-encompassing.
Plus, the Season 2 midseason trailer just arrived to completely blow us away. Watch this majesty in motion and then continue reading for more upcoming character news (some of whom you might spy in this new trailer):
What will happen to Donald? Did Louie turn into a cat? Will Glomgold join up with the Beagle Boys? Is Magica back? Will Earth survive a Moon invasion? And is that…Darkwing Duck??
Watch DuckTales on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW! http://www.DisneyNow.com
Strap in for high-flying adventures with Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire, Scrooge McDuck, and his mischief-making triplet grandnephews; Huey, Dewey and Louie. After a long overdue family reunion reunites Scrooge with his nephew Donald Duck, grandnephews and epic past, the family of ducks dive into a life more exciting than they could have ever imagined. Intrigued by the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets along with Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby, learn of long-kept family secrets from Scrooge’s epic past, sending the family on daring escapades around the world!
How insane was that?
Now back to the new characters: Daisy Duck might be the biggest change to the original show since she never appeared in that series. She’ll finally get to spend some quality time with Donald and bring an extra dimension to the expanding family show. Additionally, Goofy’s arrival is great enough in its own right, but ::gasp:: dare we hope for Goof Troop reunion? That would almost be too much, but we’ll allow it (especially since the show recently teased the connection).
If you haven’t been watching the rebooted and revived DuckTales, now’s the time to get caught up. Season 2 returns this September on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW. And in the meantime, you can peruse this epic new poster to see what other Disney greats you can spot before they make an appearance on DuckTales!
