Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going on a nostalgia train trip. I’m sure by now you’ve all heard about the DuckTales revival (if you haven’t check out my blog post about it here: ). At this point most of us have seen the promo pics and have heard the cast sing the iconic theme song. But now Disney has FINALLY given us the one thing we’ve been craving ever since we first heard about this revival. Are you ready!?! No! It’s not the announcement of a Recess revival (although fingers crossed for that). No, it’s not a Kim Possible revival…stop guessing already! We have finally gotten a DuckTales trailer! Excited! I knew you would be! So if you want to learn all about this AMAZING trailer, then please read on. Ready! Ok, let’s go!!!
The animation is definitely different than what fans of the original series are used to, but if you’re a fan of the the animation on other recent Disney XD shows such as ‘Wander Over Yonder’ or ‘Gravity Falls’ then you’ll love this stylistic choice. Another departure from the original series comes in the form of the voice acting (we’ll sort of). Scrooge McDuck’s nephews Huey(played by Danny Pudi), Dewy (played by Ben Schwartz) and Louie (played by Bobby Moynihan) definitely sound less childlike, and now have very distinct voices. They have also lost the famous Donald Duck lisp which further adds to their unique personalities. Two characters that do sound very similar to their predecessors are LaunchPad McQuack (played by Beck Bennett, most known for his work on Saturday Night Live) & Scrooge McDuck (played by David Tennant, most known for his work as Tenth Doctor on Doctor Who & Barry Crouch Jr in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire). LaunchPad McQuack sounds very similar to the voice of our childhood & Scrooge sounds so identical it’s scary (and by scary I mean completely AMAZING!!!). We’re also going to get to hear a voice that we’ve heard many times before due to the fact that Donald Duck will be played by Tony Anselmo (who has been Donald’s official voic since 1985). Earlier this month the show was officially renewed by Disney XD for a 2nd season so the channel obviously had high hopes for this reboot. Personally I’m super excited to see what the new cast & crew can bring to this iconic show. What do you think people of the internet? One thing is for sure, whether this show is a hit or miss, it will definitely take us another 27 years to get that theme song out of our heads again (DuckTales! Woo-oo!).
Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘Monday Memos’ we’re going to talk about the 1st ‘Fuller House’ teaser that was recently released. We previously discussed the ‘6 Things We Want To See in Fuller House’ (you can check out that blog post here: Monday Memos: 6 things we want to see in Fuller House), and I know that we were all super excited to see this teaser (you may now fangirl/fanboy scream…ok that’s enough…seriously please stop freaking out everyone). We didn’t get any new information from this teaser, but it definitely hit you right in the feels. So let’s hop on the nostalgia train and discuss this amazing new teaser & the other information we have on the return of one of TV’s favorite families! Ready? Ok let’s go!!!
The video is beautifully shot and features parts of the iconic Tanner house such as the kitchen and living room. It also featured the song ‘The House That Built Me’ by Miranda Lambert throughout the trailer, which really adds to the nostalgic feeling you get from the teaser. Although we don’t get to see any of the Tanner/Fuller family, we do get to hear their voices at the end of the teaser, and we even get some classic ‘Full House’ jokes thrown in there such as uncle Jesse’s obsession regarding his hair, and Joey’s iconic “cut it out” line. So needless to say this teaser will definitely hit fans of ‘Full House’ in the nostalgia, and will get you excited for what ‘Fuller House’ will bring when it premieres on February 26th, 2016.
