“This Duckburg Life,” an original scripted podcast for kids and families inspired by the critically acclaimed “DuckTales,” will debut March 29 on Disney XD YouTube, DisneyNOW and Disney XD VOD.
In the Emmy Award-nominated series, “DuckTales,” Indian American actor Danny Pudi voices Huey Duck, the practical and responsible oldest triplet by three seconds and the quick-thinking pragmatist of the family. Pudi will be reprising his role in the podcast.
Pudi (Huey) will also be hosting the seven-part podcast for “Duckburg Public Radio.” New episodes will be available every Monday following the premiere and will highlight riveting stories from Duckburg.
“DuckTales” voice cast reprising their roles in the podcast alongside Pudi include David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck), Ben Schwartz (Dewey), Bobby Moynihan (Louie), Kate Micucci (Webby Vanderquack), Beck Bennett (Launchpad McQuack), Toks Olagundoye (Mrs. Beakley), Jim Rash (Gyro Gearloose), Josh Brener (Mark Beaks), Margo Martindale (Ma Beagle) and Disney legend Tony Anselmo (Donald Duck).
“This Duckburg Life” is produced by Disney Television Animation’s multiplatform content team, led by executive director Gino Guzzardo, with Daniel Siegel serving as story editor and writers Ben Acker, Megan Gonzalez and Ben Siemon.
A clip from the first episode, “Adventure Calls,” was released March 8.
