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 »
This is a fun movie based on the Disney cartoon Ducktales, a story about Scrooge McDuck and the gang out to search for a magic lamp, with an evil wizard out to get his hands on it as well.
I remember watching Ducktales on the Disney Afternoon after I got home from elementary school, and it was one of my favorite cartoon shows. It was great seeing classic Disney characters like Huey, Duey and Louie star in a more modern show to keep up with the times, but still maintaining that special Disney charm. It's equally awesome to see the show making it to the big screen with this movie, and it brought along the show's elements: colorful animation, upbeat music, fun and daring characters and exciting adventures.
It's a little on the short side, with a running time of only 74 min. So, the movie may seemed rushed through at times. Other than that, if you love Ducktales, you would love this movie - great fun for the entire family.
