If you watched “The Secret(s) of Castle McDuck!” live on the Disney Channel you may have caught the promo for “The Last Crash of the Sunchaser!” If not I’ll embed it below so you can watch a mobile phone video of it.
The promo is short and sweet, and it packs a wallop! We’ve been waiting for more answers to the mysteries surrounding the boys’ mother ever since we learned the goddess Selene didn’t know what the Spear of Selene was in “The Spear of Selene!” We thought we might have received some answers in last week’s episode, but (SPOILERS!) the clues led to a practical joke Della had apparently played on Donald.
This Saturday’s episode is sure to answer many questions that have been floating around the fandom ever since the show’s premiere last year. Below are a few screenshots from the video posted above.
This is believed to be from the pencil shading done by Huey in last week’s episode. It appears to be an illustration of the Spear or Selene. It does in fact look like it could be a spear head, but some are also pointing out that it resembles some kind of experimental craft.
Due to Della’s story from the comics (she disappeared while flying to the moon) I have always subscribed to the theory that what Della took was an experimental aircraft/space shuttle… The name seems to imply this because Selene was the Greek goddess of the moon. What do you think? Is the image of a spear head or a spacecraft?
This image of Della at a desk inspecting a map or calendar is kind of eerie. The color (or lack of) leads me to believe we are looking at a memory. Perhaps when Scrooge or Donald are finally confronted by the kids.
This image appears to depict happier times for the trio of adventurers. It seems very familiar to those of us who have read the IDW DuckTales comic. Two early issues include stories of their adventures.
Many have speculated that Della was a pilot and I believe this was confirmed in IDW’s comics. Her clothing always suggested aviator. The context of the image is unclear.
There were of course scenes of the family in jeopardy as the Sunchaser teeter-totters on a mountain. If you’ve been waiting to find out if Della was a hero or if she betrayed her family you won’t want to miss this week’s episode on Saturday morning at 9:30!
