    DuckTales: Destination: Adventure! (2018): Gearing up for another round of excitement and hijinks, DuckTales: Destination Adventure! finds everyone’s favorite mini ducks and their wealthy grandfather Scrooge McDuck together again in a handful episodes taking them from ancient tombs to the dangerous Mt. Neverrest and beyond.  Equally as fun as their delightful pilot episode, over two hours of death-defying hilarity across six episodes await fans with a penchant for globetrotting thrills that only Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby can deliver.  While younger viewers will enjoy the offerings of episodes no questions asked, keen-eyed fans may be confused and slightly disappointed by the disc’s random selection and sorting of episodes kicking DuckTales’ home video beginnings off to an uneven start.  While their inclusion and placement may be a bit messy, there’s no denying that the fun contained within DuckTales: Destination: Adventure! is another worthy artifact deserving of a spot in fans’ home video museums.  As an added bonus for elder fans who grew up with the original DuckTales, classic episodes from seasons 1 and 4, “New Gizmo-Kids on the Block” and “Ducky Mountain High” respectively, are included to keep you woo-hooing just a little while longer.  Furthermore, Sneak Peeks at Disney Movie Rewards (0:20), DisneyNOW (1:03) and Incredibles 2 (1:01) round out the disc’s supplemental material.

    RATING: 4/5

    Available now on DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, DuckTales: Destination: Adventure! can be purchased via Amazon.com and other fine retailers.
