Lin-Manuel Miranda is all about Disney right now. He wrote songs for Moana, he’s working on the live-action version of The Little Mermaid, he’s in the upcoming Marry Poppins movie, and now he’s joining the all-star voice cast of Disney XD’s DuckTales reboot.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is a lifelong DuckTales fan, so it’s awesome that he’s going to voice Gizmoduck.

Miranda, who is not surprisingly a lifelong DuckTales fan, will voice 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.

DuckTales Executive producer Matt Youngberg said, “Lin came to mind instantly for the role of Gizmoduck. His rapid-fire earnestness paired with his wide-eyed yet determined optimism made him the perfect person to yell ‘BLATHERING BLATHERSKITE!'”

Miranda joins an all-star voice cast that is filled with crazy talented actors.

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 is coming this summer to Disney XD.
