Lin-Manuel Miranda likes to try his hand at all kinds of things. The “Hamilton” creator/ex-star is lending his voice to the Disney series reboot that premieres this year.
The Tony- and Pulitzer-winning playwright-composer-actor will recur as fan-favorite character Gizmoduck, a Duckburg hero whose true identity is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. He’s a brilliant young intern working for Gyro Gearloose, the personal mad scientist of Scrooge McDuck (David Tennant). The series already has been renewed for a second season ahead of its summer launch.
Based on the Emmy-winning 1987-90 series, “DuckTales” will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie (Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan, respectively), the temperamental Donald Duck (Tony Anselmo) and their trusty team of Webby Vanderquack (Kate Micucci), Launchpad McQuack (Beck Bennett) and Mrs. Beakley (Toks Olagundoye) embark on high-flying adventures around the world.
