As we get closer and closer to the premiere of DuckTales Season 3 various news outlets were treated to some behind the scenes footage and information. We thought it would be nice to compile all of the information on place for DuckFans anxious to learn more about Saturday’s upcoming episodes. Don’t forget DuckTales returns to Disney XD on Saturday April 4th at 9:30 am.
Huey and the F.O.W.L. conspiracy will be the focus of Season 3!
The first article we were treated to was form Comic Book Resources and it focused on Huey and the conspiracy surrounding his story arc for season 3. Here is a quote from Frank Angones from this article;
“the first season was about the past. the second season was about the present and figuring out to roll with the punches about the unexpected. The third season is about legacy and what legacy the family has. We started the show by having Scrooge being the sole ‘greatest adventurer’ in the world, the ‘richest duck in the world.’ And now he’s got a whole family and more extended family. What does that do him?”

DuckTales Season 3 is about building a Disney Afternooniverse!

Season 3 will focus on getting back to the DuckTales Status Quo… Which isn’t very normal!
CBR (I promise we will get to other outlets) Also shared more from their interview with Youngberg and Angones with another article. This article focused on how DuckTales will be transitioning from traveling to the moon and back to globetrotting adventures in Season 3. Matt Youngberg had this to say;
“I don’t think life is about having something happen over and over again, it’s about adjusting to what’s happening in the moment. Season 3 really is the family together and going back to the status quo for them, which is adventures and treasure-hunting and all that kind of stuff… I think there’s going to be a lot more adventure, even more than in the previous seasons. I think this season has wonderful stories that we explore in terms of the characters… there’s a lot of really big, cool stuff coming in the season.”
