Walt Disney's Oswald The Lucky Rabbit Is Getting an Animated Series on Disney+

A couple of years before Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse, he created another cartoon character named Oswald The Lucky Rabbit. Well, it looks like this character is going to be getting his very own animated series on Disney+ that will tell the stories of Oswald’s adventures.

#OswaldTheLuckyRabbit The Series In The Works!

An Employee from Disney Digital Network/Disney Advanced Media Labs/Disney Interactive posted that he has written some multiple episodes for Oswald!#OswaldTheLuckyRabbitTheSerieshttps://t.co/3UogvZCF2N pic.twitter.com/Ke81iUV6Cy

The news actually came from the resume of Christopher Painter, a writer for Disney Advanced Media Labs and Disney Interactive. After it was seen there, it was removed. But it was later confirmed by voice actor Eric Bauza who seemingly confirmed his involvement in another tweet.

Laugh-In's Arte Johnson Dead at 90

Laugh-In's Arte Johnson Dead at 90
Arte Johnson, an Emmy Award-winning comedian best known for his work on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, died Wednesday at the age of 90, our sister publication Variety reports, citing heart failure as his official cause of death.

Born Jan. 20, 1929 in Benton Harbor, Mich., Johnson appeared in a number of TV shows and movies before landing a spot on Laugh-In, the NBC sketch comedy series (1968–1971) that made him a household name. Among his more popular characters was Wolfgang, a German soldier who didn’t seem to realize that World War II had ended. Wolfgang came equipped with an iconic catchphrase (“Verrrry interesting…

With ‘Gen: Lock,’ Michael B. Jordan & Gray G. Haddock Look To Give Rooster Teeth “Its Best Shot At An Instant, New, Successful Franchise”

With ‘Gen: Lock,’ Michael B. Jordan & Gray G. Haddock Look To Give Rooster Teeth “Its Best Shot At An Instant, New, Successful Franchise”
With his latest animated series gen: Lock, Gray G. Haddock looked to build on the previous successes of Rooster Teeth, the Austin-based studio where he serves as Head of Animation, while presenting an experience that pushed boundaries, in a number of ways.

A viral hit in 2012 that was then expanded with four subsequent volumes, Rooster Teeth’s Rwby set a precedent that all of the studio’s later series would strive to live up to. “Creatively, there was an incredible amount of pressure placed on the production for this show to succeed right out of the gate,” Haddock says. “I wanted to apply the lessons learned from stumbling backwards into the success that was Rwby, trying to recreate some of that alchemy, but also adding enough fresh ingredients and approaches to things that it wasn’t simply a Rwby clone.”

An action-heavy science fiction series grounded in the tradition of mecha anime,

10 Things You Never Knew about Darkwing Duck

In the 1990s, Disney created a show called Darkwing Duck, which may or may not have been set in the same universe as the even better-known DuckTales. For those who are curious, Darkwing Duck was centered on the titular character, who was the superhero alterego of a normal, suburb-dwelling duck named Drake Mallard. On the whole, Darkwing Duck was a very affectionate parody of the superhero genre as a whole, which makes it no wonder that interested individuals have speculated about it returning to the TV screen in recent times. Speculation that turned out to have been neither wholly true

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 16 Review: The Duck Knight Returns!

A tribute to Darkwing Duck becomes a powerful message about the impact of media.

This DuckTales review contains spoilers.

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 16

There’s a separation between the people who make media and the people who consume it. For the consumers, the fans, a piece of media can be a beacon of hope. A distraction from the world around you. An escape. Something to get lost in.

That’s not to say those who make the media don’t have that same level of involvement but it’s of a different sort. When you’re behind the scenes and privy to all the inner workings of a show it can lose its shine. The inner workings are exposed. While you can of course take great pride and joy in the making of it, it’s just not the same as consuming it as an average watcher.

Darkwing Duck Is Making a Comeback in Disney's Ducktales Series

For all you ‘90s kids who grew up with Disney shows like DuckTales and Darkwing Duck in your life, you’ll be happy to learn that Darkwing Duck is making a comeback and will appear in an upcoming episode of DuckTales titled “The Duck Knight Returns!”

Darkwing Duck was my jam when I was a kid! He was easily one of my favorite Disney characters. Probably because he reminded me of those classic noir comic book characters like Batman, The Shadow, and The Spirit.

According to EW, Jim Cummings, who voiced the titular character on the ’90s cartoon, will reprise his role of actor Jim Starling, a.k.a. Darkwing Duck. Director Edgar Wright (Baby Driver) plays visionary film director Alistair Boorswan, and real-life Darkwing Duck creator Tad Stones voices a security guard named Tad.

Stones had this to say in a statement:

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 15

DuckTales’ characters make you Feel. That sounds like an obvious statement but connecting with an anthropomorphized duck person isn’t easy! Thankfully with the fantastic voice acting of the likes of Lin-Manuel Miranda, the top-notch writing, and gorgeous animation, you forget these are ducks that don’t wear pants.

Hell, you don’t even question how a dude is a superhero on what’s basically a robot unicycle. You can suspend your disbelief because at the core of a character like Fenton there are feelings you can empathize with. You may not have ever built your own superhero armor (although I’m sure the fine readers of Den of Geek are capable of such things) but we can all understand wanting to be seen

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 14 Review: Friendship Hates Magic!

Is Lena only threatened by Webby's new friend or is she facing her own demons?

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 14

It’s been a long time but we’re finally back to the Lena plot! The stand out arc of the first season of DuckTales, when we last saw Lena she managed to free herself from Magica and attach herself to Webby. It’s a shame we haven’t seen her until now but we do learn that she’s been keeping watch over Webby this whole time.

That’s heartbreaking! Just picture it, Webby is off having adventures or bonding with the family and Lena is just quietly there. Happy for her friend but still so far apart. With that time though Lena grew closer to Webby in unexpected ways. While of course Webby had the family to lean on she never managed to find another friend.

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 13

Allow me to digress before we’ve even begun. As those who follow these reviews are probably aware, I’m not a hardcore DuckTales/Donald Duck/Scrooge McDuck fan. Sure I watched DuckTales as a kid and I’ve loved this new series, but there are some deep cut references in this show that just slip past me. I don’t devote too much time to them anyway because the show should be able to stand on its own even if you don’t get the references.

For the most part DuckTales has succeeded in that. Sure I’ve noticed when a deep cut reference passes by but it never makes me feel like I’m missing anything. Still, I’ve often wondered what it was like

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 12 Review: Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 12

Nothing can stop Della Duck… except years of built up expectations! Both her and the kids have been waiting for this moment and I’m delighted it only took until the second season of DuckTales for us to get it. It was enough time to really sell the big opening moments of this episode. No one can deny the raw emotional power of the family reuniting. Even Louie, who has the most reservations about Della, isn’t denied this tearful moment.

It’s what comes after though that really helps elevate the episode. At first everything seems great. Della is psyched and applies all the gusto of rebuilding her space ship to being a good mom. She

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 11

Well that DuckTales episode didn’t go where I thought it would. I really thought this whole thing would be a big lesson for Penumbra about not giving into her mistrust of Della. That’s where it seemed it was going, right? Instead of being jealous or suspicious she should have embraced the loveable Della.

But perhaps it’s deeper than that. In any other show the lesson would be as simple as that but this is DuckTales. It’s never quite so simple.

So the moon people have lived in fear for years. They retreated underground because Lunaris’ father was afraid of the Earth. While some of the people were able to get over their fear because hey, Della Duck is amazing,

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 10 Review: The 87 Cent Solution!

DuckTales returns to its 'how wealth corrupts' arc and since that involves Glomgold you know it'll be good.

This DuckTales review contains spoilers.

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 10

There’s two ways to read this DuckTales episode. One is as a fun wacky whodunit outing with Glomgold still being the best villain on television (perhaps the best character on television?) The other is as a continuation of the plot arc that began in ‘The Ballad of Duke Baloney!’ about how wealth corrupts. Both ways involve Glomgold so no matter what we’re in for a great time.

I say you can look at it two ways because I admit the plot arc from that previous episode may have just been me reading too far into it. In that review I theorized Glomgold’s whole character arc was about how wealth corrupts. That Scrooge was the one who turned Glomgold into what he is,

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 9 Review: The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck!

DuckTales gives us a fun romp, even if there isn’t much gold to be had.

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 9

It’s always odd when I give DuckTales a less than stellar review. This show is usually rock solid, with the series rarely scoring below a 3/5 and on average netting 4’s and higher. So what about this episode left me a little cold?

I can put it down to two things, the first being is that it was a little too straightforward. The framing device of Scrooge telling the story to Louie was fun but it seems it could have been used to greater effect. Same with Gyro traveling to the past. There’s a ton of great gags that could have been utilized and that’s another problem with the episode.

The second is there's too many fun ideas stuffed into one episode. Scrooge and Goldie reuniting,

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Treasure of the Found Lamp!

DuckTales beautifully lampoons the tropes of epic quests and gives us its most (delightfully) pedestrian adventure yet.

This DuckTales review contains spoilers.

DuckTales Season 2 Episode 8

DuckTales has a delightful tendency to not go where you think it’s headed. The beginning of 'Treasure of the Found Lamp!’ sets up what could be a standard adventure, which of course DuckTales would do great with, but goes an even more amazing direction. It (lovingly) lampoons epic quests and makes the actual plot much more pedestrian, to hilarious effect.

I can’t get over just how well DuckTales does comedy. The swerve into farce land did this episode so many favors, with my favorite of the two plots being Webby and Scrooge’s stalling of Djinn. Webby’s enthusiasm was of course infectious but it was Scrooge’s exasperated but well-intentioned part in it that was tip top. The riddle sequence is one

Stars of ‘Descendants 3,’ ‘Zombies 2’ Laud Strong Female Characters on TV

  • Variety
Promoting strong female characters was very much on brand for several of Disney Channel’s star characters at Saturday’s Disney Channel Fan Fest held at California Adventure Park, a day-long event that treated kids and their families to a bevy of fan-focused activities, from Q&A sessions to musical performances and meet and greets with Disney Channel stars.

Sofia Carson, who stars as Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen in Disney Channel’s original movies “Descendants” and “Descendants 2,” revealed that in the third installation her character will continue to be a positive role model for young viewers.

“Evie has always been very much focused on her heart and what she cares about most is giving back and especially empowering young girls and young women everywhere, so you’ll especially see that in ‘Descendants 3,’ said Carson, who also joined the cast of the Freeform drama series “Pretty Little Liars” this past year.
