Lin-Manuel Miranda voices DUCKTALES Gizmoduck, new Latin-American heritage

Multiple award-winning actor, playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda has joined the voice cast of the new DUCKTALES series debuting this summer on Disney XD. A lifelong DUCKTALES aficionado, Miranda will provide the voice of fan-favorite character Gizmoduck, a Duckburg hero whose true identity is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera, a brilliant young intern working for Scrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose. The character now has a decidedly Latin American background and his feathers are a few shades darker to reflect the character’s new heritage.

The series, produced by Disney Television Animation, has already been picked up for a second season ahead of its highly anticipated premiere.

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.

Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, the new family comedy-adventure series will once again take viewers along as Scrooge McDuck, his curious and mischief-making grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie, the temperamental Donald Duck and their trusty team, Webby Vanderquack, Launchpad McQuack and Mrs. Beakley, embark on high-flying adventures around the world.

DUCKTALES will debut in summer 2017 on DISNEY XD.

I've been on MouseInfo since 2005. I was a casual Disney fan until my visit to Disneyland on July 17, 2005. Since then, I've been hooked and haven't looked back!
