Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins New ‘DuckTales’ Series

According to Oh My Disney, the star studded vocal cast of the new DuckTales reboot has just added another huge star. Lin-Manuel Miranda will join the cast as Gizmoduck, a superhero of Duckburg! Gizmoduck’s true identity is Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera will be the intern of Scrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose. Lin-Manuel’s version of Gizmoduck/Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera will be a Latin re-imagination of the original version of the character.

Lin-Manuel Miranda has been part of a slew of other Disney projects including being a composer for the 2016 animated hit film Moana, starring in the upcoming 2018 Mary Poppins Returns, among other projects.

The new DuckTales series will premiere on Disney XD later this year.
