List of New Villains Introduced in Disney’s “Ducktales” Reboot

Thus far, Disney’s 2017 reboot of its classic animated cartoon series Ducktales has been everything fans wanted and more. From the greater presence of Donald Duck in the adventures and the driving myth arc regarding what happened to his sister – the nephews’ mother – everything’s been going at an exciting pace.

While classic Ducktales baddies like Flintheart Glomgold, the Beagle Boys and even Magica de Spell are all accounted for in this re-imagining of the series, there’s still room for more interesting new antagonists for Scrooge McDuck and his family to tangle with. Here’s a list of the prominent new villains.

  1. Captain Peghook – a ghost pirate summoned by the nephews from Scrooge’s chamber of knick-knacks in the “Woo-oo!” pilot
  2. Gabby McStabberson – Glomgold’s female henchman in “Woo-oo!”; claims to be raised by warrior monks who taught her swordsmanship; takes an interest in Donald
  3. Hack & Slash Smashnikov – twin-brother henchmen of Glomgold’s, also from “Woo-oo!”
  4. Toad Liu Hai – purported owner of the House of Lucky Fortune casino in Macaw, actually an ancient luck and fortune spirit harvesting the lucky energy of Duck relative Gladstone Gander in the episode “House of the Lucky Gander”
  5. Mark Beaks – a modern-day tech guru millionaire, CEO of the search engine/online platform Waddle; while outwardly hip and friendly, he’s also amoral with corrupt practices; first appeared in “The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks”; some in the fan community nickname him “Mark Duckerberg”
  6. Falcon Graves – a ruthless industrial spy secretly hired by Mark Beaks, also in “The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks”; while single-mindedly focused on his job, he has his own standards and will turn against any employer feeding him false info
  7. Toth-Ra – from “The Living Mummies of Toth-Ra”, a sinister undead Pharaoh mummy
  8. Zeus – the Greek god from Olympus who is hostile to Scrooge for his great popularity with the public; appeared in “The Spear of Selene”
  9. Briar and Bramble – two kelpies managing the Druids Cup golf tournament in “The Missing Links of Moorshire”, who try (but fail) to lure Scrooge and company – and Glomgold – to the water to drown them; their character designs are inspired by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic with the characters voiced by Pony voice actresses Tara Strong and Andrea Libman

List of Disney’s “Descendants: Wicked World” Season 1 Episodes

The 2015 Disney Channel Movie Descendants introduced viewers to a world strange yet familiar, where all Disney film characters live together in one universe. In a nation ruled by Belle and the former Beast, a prep school is home to the children of many beloved Disney heroes…and of villains too.

When the sons and daughters of four of the vilest bad guys in the Disney Animated Canon get a chance to attend Auradon Prep, they get a chance to become more than just junior evil villains. After foiling her mother Malificent’s plot, Mal settles in at school for more adventures.

Descendants: Wicked World is a spinoff sequel series to Disney Channel’s Descendants, chronicling the further adventures of the bad-turned-almost good foursome of bad-guy children as they make friends in school and become better rather than bad.

  8. Puffed Deliciousness”  (November 13, 2015) – Best way to break in a villain-kid transfer student to Auradon Prep (like Freddie, now) has got to be the food; makes up for mandatory “Remedial Goodness” class; oh and Ruby (Rapunzel’s daughter) was just there…
  9. Good is the New Bad” (November 20, 2015) – Alice’s daughter Ally has no partner for Auradon Prep’s song contest, so Mal suggests she team up with Freddie; what’s the worst that could happen?

  12. Mash It Up” (December 13, 2015) – Another Auradon Prep dance party is on the horizon, and the girls discuss what to do inside Jordan’s lamp; funny ideas ensue, made even funnier when they’re combined…

  14. Mad for Tea”   (July 6, 2016) – there’s no end in sight for Mal and friends as the continuing prep for the NLB sees more untrusting eyes turning their way; who’s ruining things for everybody?

List of “High School Musical” Books from Disney Press (2006-2009)

List of “Star Wars: Forces of Destiny” Season 1 Episodes

The choices we make, the actions we take, moments both big and small, shape us into Forces of Destiny.

And with those words, the animated web series Star Wars: Forces of Destiny begins anew with another episode of adventure featuring the most awesome heroines of the Galaxy far, far away.

The first season of Forces of Destiny premiered online in mid-2017 through Disney’s official YouTube channel, with the episodes eventually airing on Disney Channel later that year in October. There were 16 episodes in all, focusing on characters from the Prequel, Original and Sequel trilogies of the Star Wars saga:

  1. Sands of Jakku – Rey before The Force Awakens
  2. BB-8 Bandits – Rey during The Force Awakens
  3. Ewok Escape – Princess Leia Organa during Return of the Jedi
  4. The Padawan Path – Ahsoka Tano during Clone Wars
  5. Beasts of Echo Base – Princess Leia Organa before The Empire Strikes Back
  6. The Imposter Inside – Ahsoka Tano and Senator Padmé Amidala during Clone Wars
  7. The Stranger – Jyn Erso before Rogue One
  8. Bounty of Trouble – Princess Leia Organa and Sabine Wren during Rebels

“Star Wars: Forces of Destiny” Returns with Season 2 (and Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker Too)

Once more, the choices we make and the actions we take will shape us into Forces of Destiny as the Star Wars web-series from Lucasfilm Animation returns for a second season. Said season, comprising of eight episodes, was first announced in September 2017, and has been released online on YouTube.

Now, while many viewers may have appreciated the concept of Forces of Destiny as showcasing the various female characters of the Star Wars saga in action, critics would deride the show as “feminist pandering”. Their tune should change with one of the S2 episodes, featuring a guy: Luke Skywalker himself.

Even better, they got actor Mark Hamill to reprise his iconic role for episode 7 “The Path Ahead”, which elaborates on Luke’s Jedi training under Yoda on planet Dagobah. Hamill calls on his veteran voice acting skills to recapture a youngish voice as much as possible for Luke once more.

If you were wondering what brought on the sequence in The Empire Strikes Back, of Luke jumping through the Dagobah swamps with Yoda riding in a pack on his back, this episode answers your question. Some of the other episodes also take place “in between” movies or even film scenes.

For instance, episode 6 “Bounty Hunted” would explain how Princess Leia got her bounty hunter costume in Return of the Jedi. These and other adventures can be watch on Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, now available for viewing on Disney’s YouTube channel, before premiering on Disney Channel this March 25.
