Earlier this year, DJ and EDM producer Marshmello released his music video, “ Fly,” on YouTube, where it has racked up almost 50 million views. But over the weekend, Marshmello released a brand new “Fly” video that blended animation and live-action, as he teamed up with the characters from Disney’s DuckTales for a mesmerizing journey to an alien world made out of marshmallows.The new version of “Fly” deputed on Disney Channel, the new home of the DuckTales series. In this video, Launchpad must have had the day off because Donald Duck was tasked with piloting a spacecraft to get his family home. We’re willing to bet that this was one of Donald’s first times at the controls, as he clearly didn’t know what he was doing and he quickly crashed the ship. Uncle Scrooge looked particularly displeased with the turn of events.
But it’s hard to stay mad on a planet like this. Webby and the nephews–Huey, Dewey, and Louie–quickly embraced the unique properties of the world before an animated version of Marshmello introduced himself. Even as an alien, Marshmello was still a DJ, and he had the Duck family ship fixed and ready to go by the end of the video. This was a stunningly beautiful piece of animation, and we’re hoping it will be on the eventual Blu-ray collection of DuckTales‘ first season. After watching this video, we’d love to see Marshmello visit other Disney characters in a similar way.
