Is Scrooge McDuck a big EDM fan? While I can’t say (though I have taken a dive into his famed money pit), the DuckTales have entered a whole new world with the release of a brand-new collaboration between Marshmello and Disney. The DJ/Producer’s recent video for “Fly” already racked up more than 48 million views on YouTube, and now there’s a new version featuring the DuckTales crew. A mix of animation and live-action, the music video launches Scrooge, his nephew Donald, great-nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie and their friend Webby into a musical outer space adventure. When their spaceship unexpectedly crashes, they encounter an alien DJ on a remote Marshmello planet. The video just made its premiere during a screening of Disney·Pixar’s The Incredibles leading into the “2018 Radio Disney Music Awards” (RDMA) (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel.

Marshmello will also perform at the 2018 RDMA and is a top nominee with four nominations. Since his arrival on the music scene in 2015, Marshmello’s YouTube channel has amassed over 2.6 billion views with more than 15 million monthly subscribers. Last year’s worth of chart topping singles – featuring collaborations with Selena Gomez, Khalid, Migos, Logic and more – have garnered more than 2 billion streams across Spotify alone and with more than 40 million monthly listeners, he is Spotify’s #4 Most-Streamed Artist in the World. His new album, JOYTIME II just arrived this week.
