When Disney XD finally takes us back to Duckburg with the summer 2017 premiere of the all-new DuckTales, the voices behind the beloved characters are going to sound awfully familiar!

The cable net just announced the voice cast for the new series, and the list reads like a who's who of some of our favorite TV stars. Stepping into the roles of Huey, Dewey, and Louie are comedy faves Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks & Recreation) and Bobby Moynihan (SNL), respectively. And, for the voice of their wealthy granduncle Scrooge McDuck, it's none other than Doctor Who himself, David Tennant!
