Remember back in February 2015 when Disney announced that DuckTales will be remade and air on Disney XD starting in 2017? Well, today Disney officially confirmed a Summer 2017 premiere date. It even dropped this teaser:
Even with just those basic deets and a 15-second teaser, we’re still exploding with excitement. We even thought about replacing all of these tweets posted nearly two years ago, but nope, they still accurately capture just how awesome the news is.
We didn’t scream this, but we wish we had.

Great. Now we’re covered in pink mist.
…Just going to assume we’re saying the same thing.

What?! Fingers crossed for Season 2.
DisneyXD is rebooting #Ducktales! But they listed characters to be involved, and there was no mention of GizmoDuck… Mixed feelings now.

If they fuck up this Duck Tales reboot I'm going to be really pissed.

Truth. We really thought invoices were going to ruin everything.
I can't believe Disney is relaunching DuckTales! This is a great day after all.

If you plan on associating with me for the next week expect to hear a lot of "ducktales ooh woo hoo"

Wait. We need an excuse? #NoKids
Amid the tweets, we even met our new bestie.
@KrissiBex To this day… if I say DuckTales and the person I'm talking to doesn't woo-hoo back, I question our friendship.

And our soul mate.
There's a lot of problems in this world, a lot of terrible things.
But DuckTales is getting a remake.
Take that, terrorists.

Then some of us got a little greedy. (PS: You forgot Tailspin.)
Now if they only bring back count duckula and dark wing and the rest of the good cartoons! http://t.co/FjnrIptsGu

sure ducktales is coming back, but if recess isn't then have we really won?
— Birthday Dad (@surfwax83) February 25, 2015
Really, though. At the end of the day, this is all that matters.
They're making NEW tales of daring-do bad and good?!? I'm in. #DuckTales

We didn’t actually think of this, but we wish we had.
