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.
"Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is giving voice to Gizmoduck on Disney XD's "DuckTales".
Based on the original cartoon of the same name, which aired from 1987-1990, DuckTales follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews as they hunt for treasures around the world and fight off enemies after Scrooge's vast fortune.
Executive producer Matt Youngberg said Miranda is a great choice for the role because of his enthusiasm.
Emmanuel Macron holds first Cabinet meeting
Macron, in his third day in office, will host European Council President Donald Tusk at the Elysee Palace for a private dinner. France's new president has assembled his cabinet with figures from the left and right.
What do you make of this news? "His rapid-fire earnestness paired with his wide-eyed yet determined optimism made him the ideal person to yell 'BLATHERING BLATHERSKITE!'" We definitely agree that this is casting is flawless and Miranda fits the bill (JK not sorry at all) perfectly. "In developing the new series, Matt and I leapt at the opportunity to adapt 'DuckTales" marquee hero into a young scientist character with Latin-inspired roots", co-producer and story editor Francisco Angones said.
In the original "DuckTales", Fenton accidentally activated the Gizmosuit by uttering his catchphrase, "blatherin' blatherskite". As Gizmoduck he also worked for Scrooge as his bodyguard and part of his security staff.
After breaking out with In the Heights then breaking huge with Hamilton, Miranda has written songs for Disney's Moana - one of which was up for an Oscar - and appeared on such TV series as Drunk History and Inside Amy Schumer. Miranda joins a voice cast that already includes David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck), Danny Pudi (Huey), Ben Schwartz (Dewey) and Bobby Moynihan (Louie).
