Lin-Manuel Miranda is building up quite a resume since departing the hit musical Hamilton. He’s already did the composition for Moana and signed on as a lead for Mary Poppins Returns as well as getting involved with the adaptation of Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles. Now he can add Duck Tales to the list.
Miranda will voice Gizmoduck, an armored superhero with the secret identity of Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera, an intern for (mad) scientist Gyro Gearloose. He’ll be having adventures with Scrooge McDuck (David Tennant) and his three nephews Huey (Danny Pudi), Dewey (Ben Schwartz), and Louie (Bobby Moynihan).
Duck Tales premieres this summer on Disney XD and has already been picked up for a second season.
