“When you’re in trouble you call DW!” Disney+ is developing a reboot of the popular Disney Afternoon series Darkwing Duck.

What’s Happening:

  • Variety has revealed that Disney is working on an animated reboot of Darkwing Duck for Disney+.
  • Disney has included the character several times in the revival of Ducktales that’s been successfully running since 2017.
  • The new version of the series will be executive produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, and Alex McAtee of Point Grey Pictures.
  • The original animated series ran for three seasons and all episodes are currently streaming on Disney+.
  • For the unfamiliar, the premise of the show is a crime fighting duck who is joined by his sidekick Launchpad (from Ducktales) and daughter Gosalyn.
  • Jim Cummings voiced the character in the original animated series and most recently in the new Ducktales (Cummings plays the in-universe TV character while Chris Diamantopolous voices the “Real” Dawkwing Duck), but no casting announcements have been made yet.
  • For now, it looks like Disney+ is about to “Get dangerous” with this revival.
