It is interesting that we just returned from Disney World and made our way on Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros at Epcot, a boat ride in the Mexico Pavilion and these teasers for Legend Of The Three Caballeros are starting to appear in the US. On the ride Donald’s has disappeared, and it’s up to José Carioca, the Brazilian parrot and Panchito, the Mexican charro rooster, to find him.
The United States finally get a look at Legend Of The Three Caballeros and we can find both the intro as well as a first look video below:
This is the introduction video to the show:
Here we have a first look at an episode of the show:
There is a lot of information out there, and we don’t exactly know what is fact, but we have some idea of what is going on. It seems that the show may have been done for a while, even before DuckTales reboot, but it is only available on the Disneylife app, a video on demand service that Disney is trying out in the Philippines. There are other areas that have Disneylife but it does not seem like those regions are currently carrying the show.
The cartoon does look great and it might make sense that Disney either introduces it to the US for the 75th anniversary of The Three Caballeros or when they introduce their VOD service to the United States. With Donald having a role on DuckTales (more prominent than the original show) it might make sense to hold on to this show for a bit. While we know there can never really be too much Donald, it might be a bit confusing having him in two different cartoons at once.
The intro gives us some great looks at villains that the Caballeros encounter in the cartoon, and we are already hooked.
In the exclusive first look we get a small look at José Carioca and all of his charm. We also get Panchito, the Mexican charro rooster, being his usual funny self. They are all brought together by the inheritance of Clinton Coot, the late great-grandfather of Donald Duck. What is interesting is that he is also tagged as being the founder of the Junior Woodchucks. Clinton gives Donald an old adventurer cabana at the New Quackmore Institute of Art, Culture and Science. Panchito and José are descendants of the other two members of the Three Caballeros and they will get into some trouble by exploring the artifacts in the house and summoning the Goddess of Adventure, Xandra. This seems like it would lead to some great stories.
We look forward to Legend Of The Three Caballeros showing up in the United States soon.
