It may be time for Scrooge McDuck to call a flat meeting. The latest clip from Disney XD's DuckTales shows Scrooge in action, but his three nephews, Ms. Beakly and Webby steal the show.
In this DuckTales reboot, Scrooge McDuck -- played by Doctor Who alum David Tennant -- is an adventurer first. The old Scrooge made his fortune traveling the world, but he was comically greedy. Tennant's Scrooge, on the other hand, seems a bit softer, happy to overturn a tea set to use as a shield or advise his young wards on proper wartime etiquette.
Throughout the clip, Ms. Beakly refuses to drop a single piece of the expensive tea set, catching them with Spider-Man-like reflexes. Meanwhile, Webby takes the wargames a bit too seriously and menaces Huey, Dewey and Louie with her dart gun and grappling hook. The clip even fits in a gag from Donald Duck and a reference to the villainous Ma Beagle, who will be played by Margo Martindale.
