“DuckTales” Reportedly Cancelled at Disney XD, Possibly Affecting World Showcase Adventure Game at EPCOT

Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Webby, and the rest of the gang may have gone on their last adventure.

Collider’s associate editor, Drew Taylor, has reported that “DuckTales” has been cancelled at Disney XD, ending its run after the conclusion of season three. Disney has yet to confirm the report.

The show, a reboot of the Disney Afternoon series that originally ran from 1987 to 1990, brought Donald Duck and other beloved characters, including Daisy Duck, Chip and Dale, and Darkwing Duck to the core lineup from the original series for special appearances. The show had changed its home multiple time bouncing from Disney XD to Disney Channel and back again in time for the third season.

Taylor added that the show’s offices have been shuttered for some time, and a majority of the show’s crucial creative team have already moved onto new projects.

It’s currently unknown if the potential cancellation will affect Disney’s DuckTales World Showcase Adventure, which was officially announced a year ago. The interactive scavenger hunt, which was set to replace Phineas and Ferb Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure, would invite guests to use the Play Disney Parks app to help Scrooge and his family discover exotic destinations, exciting mysteries, and maybe even a few thieves, villains and supernatural guardians of ancient artifacts. But fans of the show can take heart: both the Phineas and Ferb experience and its predecessor, Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure, lasted at the park well after their shows ended their run. (In fact, the Kim Possible version didn’t even open at the park until after the series had finished.) Still, it seems that life in Duckburg is about to be much calmer now.

The world showcase adventure should be SHIELD vs HYDRA based. Marvel as a property is not going anywhere and can be changed to meet the storyline needs.

Well that’s disappointing. I thought it was a very clever show, one of the best reboots I’d ever seen. Was just telling my husband how much I prefer it to the Animaniacs reboot. Glad we will probably still have a Darkwing show, but disappointed this one won’t be happening. Any chance this is just a Covid related hiatus?

Considering they kept the Phineas and Ferb one years after that show ended, I think we will get a couple more years of Duck Tales. Then they will change it to another cancelled show.

They should bring back the Phineas and Ferb theme! I know it’s not on TV anymore but they just had a new movie come out over the summer and I think a lot more people would enjoy Agent P versus Duck Tales.

Honestly they should just move the show to Disney+ exclusive instead of canceling it
