Almost a full year ago we learned that multiple award-winning actor, playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda joined the voice cast of the new DUCKTALES series and we’ve been patiently waiting for his work to debut but we now finally have confirmation for a May 11 debut!
In that episode we’ll be introduced to the updated version of Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera! If that name doesn’t sound familiar that’s because he has a new hypen in his name (indicating his Latin-American descent) AND of course you might better know the character by his alter-ego: GIZMODUCK! The character is brilliant young intern working for Scrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose.
Miranda will recur alongside the talented voice cast which includes David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi,Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
The Emmy® Award-nominated hit series will now air daily on Disney Channel, beginning TUESDAY, MAY 1 with premieres every Friday in May, and new episodes and shorts debuting throughout the summer across Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel YouTube.
DUCKTALES returns to Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel YouTube starting May 1.
