A paddling of ducks helped announce the television movie premiere date today on the official "DuckTales" Facebook page, which also debuted the series opening title and new rendition of the iconic theme song.

Woo-oo! DuckTales is back in action.

Disney XD's DuckTales reboot not only has a confirmed release date, there's also a brand new theme song and intro to go along with the revamped series! The movie will air for 24 consecutive hours, starting at midnight Saturday, Aug. 12.

When the original song's writer, Mark Mueller, was approached to hear the new version, he admitted that he was "nervous", but ultimately thought that the reboot's team did "an wonderful job". It will be released by Walt Disney Records on Friday, June 23rd, but you can check it out in the video below! Considering the show's longstanding pop cultural legacy and continued relevance with viewers who grew up watching the show in the late 1980s and 1990s, the Disney original series may be in for a whole new boost from a new generation of eager fans - when parents who remember the old show begin sharing the new series with their children.

Apart from the series regulars Scrooge McDuck, nephews Donald Duck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Webby, Launchpad McQuack, Gizmoduck, a new character Mark Beaks has been introduced. Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge's epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis.

The voice cast of DuckTales features - get ready - David Tennant, Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz, Bobby Moynihan, Kate Micucci, Beck Bennett, Toks Olagundoye, Tony Anselmo, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Allison Janney, Margo Martindale, Paul F. Tompkins, Kimiko Glenn, Jim Rash, Josh Brener, Keith Ferguson, Eric Bauza, and Corey Burton.

"Ben 10: Omniverse" alum Matt Youngberg is the executive producer of "DuckTales", with Angones ("Wander Over Yonder") serving as the story editor and co-producer. The series is a production of Disney Television Animation and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
