Trivia

Other Theatrical DuckTales films were intended to release after this film, but they were all scrapped after this film's poor box office results. See more »

Goofs

During the climactic infiltration of the money bin, the nephews shut down all the alarms. Later, however, when they are seen running up the stairs toward Scrooge's office (when the bin is being transformed into Merlock's fortress), an alarm is going off. See more »

Alternate Versions

When the film was released in theaters, the theme song was reprised twice during the end credits, both times sung. For some reason, the VHS only has the first time sung, while the second time is instrumental only. David Newman's music is also a bit off by about half a second. Oddly, the PAL DVD release contains the theatrical mix, while the NTSC DVD and VHS feature the above-mentioned alteration. See more »

Good animation
17 March 2012 | by russell-patrick39See all my reviews

I recently watched the "DuckTales" movie again, because it was a slow evening, and I still have fond memories of the series since its inception in '86.

I think that's why I watched the movie all the way through.

Don't get me wrong, the first (and only) Disney Movietoon isn't bad as far as films go. There were just a few things that didn't sit well with me, namely the animation. It was a step beyond television animation and a step below feature film animation. The result was better use of shading and lighting, but wasn't nearly as fluid as say, "Aladdin", "Beauty and the Beast" or any of Disney's other films during the early '90's. The soundtrack didn't really detract or enhance the film, but the show's theme provided a snappy, upbeat tune to end the film with.

The story itself wasn't bad, but some of the 30-minute shows seemed to have more interesting plots and faster pacing. That, and the "wacky Genie" schtick was done much better two years down the road with Robin Williams in "Aladdin". What really pulled this film through was the voice cast from the series, as they know their characters, and that's apparent. The film wisely kept its cast exclusively to the show's main characters, the genie, and the main villain and sidekick, but I got the feeling they should have all been given more to do.

As I said before, it's not a bad film, and I don't know if this film will ever be re-issued by Disney, but the main strength of this film lies in how much you like Scrooge McDuck and company. The television show was the best of any of Disney's non-feature animation, and for that reason, it kept me through the film until final credits.
