Duck yourself create a duck

A new 'Ducktales' avatar creator has people getting 'all ducked out.' We gave it a try.



With new, rebooted episodes of Disney's "Ducktales" headed to TV this summer, marketing stunts are in full swing. A real-life money vault is touring so that fans can high dive into piles of coins like Scrooge McDuck, a revamped theme song has been released to mixed reaction and now an avatar generator has been created that allows you to see what you'd look like as a citizen of Duckburg.

"All Ducked Out" was added this week to the Disney XD app in the App Store and on Google Play. The artists behind the project were some of the first to share their "ducksonas".

The end result is pure Disney style duck, with a signature bill or beak the likes of which you've seen in movies and on TV for the better part of a century, plus a few modern twists.

Marketing an upcoming TV series or movie with a cartoon avatar creator has been popular for a decade now, kicking off properly with "The Simpsons" in 2007, "Mad Men" in 2009, "Futurama" in 2011, "Peanuts" in 2015 and most recently "South Park" in 2016.

You can create your own duck with the app but Disney has announced that the tool will also be coming to their website soon.

We played with the tool for a while (that's our staff at the top of this article) and most of us found the tools adequite to match our styles and looks, though some perplexing wardrobe and hairstyle choices are included.

Have you tried the tool? How'd yours turn out? Are you planning on watching the "Ducktales" reboot? Let us know in the comments.
