I’ve been thinking about Ducktales a lot lately. Besides the fact I just found out I won an awesome Ducktales Remastered promo kit from Capcom (more on that later), I’ve been thinking about how it is the perfect time for Disney to make a CG Ducktales movie. I know technically there has been a Ducktales movie, but The Treasure of the Lost Lamp was hardly the Ducktales movie we deserve.
Why do I think this should happen?
1. Ducktales is Timeless
Because Ducktales was based on the classic Carl Barks duck universe and wasn’t based completely in our world, it has a timeless quality that a lot of 80s/90s cartoons just don’t have. You can pop in a DVD of Ducktales and watch it without a whole lot of cringe-worthy moments. I can’t even say that about the original TMNT cartoon, and I’m a huge Turtle nut.
Kids (and adults) still relate to the adventure and globe-trotting aspects of the series, and the villains and secondary characters are still a lot of fun. Ducktales wouldn’t need a lot of updating to work as a feature film. Give it an awesome script and it could be great.
