The official DuckTales Facebook page posted the new series opening title and rendition of the cartoon's iconic theme song Wednesday.

"The story unfolds as Donald Duck reluctantly takes Huey, Dewey and Louie to the home of their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck," a synopsis explained. "Enthralled by their once-legendary great-uncle and the wonder of McDuck Manor, the triplets and Webby learn of long-kept family secrets and unleash totems from Scrooge's epic past, sending the family on an adventure of a lifetime to the Lost City of Atlantis."

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Allison Janney are among the recurring guest stars who will lend their voices to characters in Season 1 of the re-boot .
