“Darkwing Duck” Reboot Currently in Development for Disney+
A “Darkwing Duck” reboot is currently in development at Disney+, according to Variety.
The original “Darkwing Duck” ran from 1991 to 1992 with 91 episodes. It follows superhero Darkwing Duck (a.k.a. Drake Mallard), his sidekick Launchpad McQuack, and sometimes his adopted daughter Gosalyn.
The rebooted “DuckTales” series has set up the possibility of a “Darkwing Duck” reboot, introducing Launchpad, Darkwing, and Gosalyn. In season 2 of “DuckTales”, Drake Mallard was president of the Darkwing Duck fan club, with Darkwing being a fictional character in the universe. Drake Mallard then became Darkwing Duck himself.
No writer is attached to the new project, but Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, and Alex McAtee of Point Grey Pictures are reportedly executive producing the project.
