At it’s core, DuckTales isn’t about adventure. Well, it is, but there’s something much more important. Family. Family has been at the heart of DuckTales from the start. Whether it’s the family that you’re born in, or the one you choose, family is what makes DuckTales great. And even amidst a finale that’s not afraid to give payoffs to things we didn’t even know know had payoffs, it never forgets that.
Last week, Disney XD’s amazing reboot of DuckTales up-ended itself with F.O.W.L. being forced into the open. Worse still, they learn that it’s led by a member of Scrooge’s own Board of Directors. That revelation has rocked the Duck Family to its core, and left them a paranoid mess. And when you consider the lengths that Scrooge will go to keep those he loves safe, that’s a recipe for disaster. And nothing but a good time for us.
