DuckTales is still a firm favourite of good family fun. We all grew up with Huey, Dewey and Louie and all the mischief adventures they got into. With Donald Duck, and of course Scrooge McDuck. 
The long-awaited new take on the iconic Disney DuckTales launched this month on Disney XD with a special episode entitled Woo-oo!. The follow-up series launches with two back-to-back episodes every day from Monday 23rd to Thursday 26th April at 16:00.

We were invited to a pre-screening of Disney DuckTales and Big Hero 6, and it was such a treat. The stories are fresh, but with all the quirks and fantasy of the original characters.

Featuring a distinct animation style inspired by the classic Carl Barks' comic designs, "DuckTales" chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg's most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck, his mischief-making triplet grandnephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie, temperamental nephew Donald Duck and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley's granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet's newfound fierce friend.

The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge's epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.

The snacks for Disney DuckTales and Big Hero 6 were spot on! So creative and so delicious.
