'Hamilton' Star Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins Disney XD's 'DuckTales'

'Hamilton' Star Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins Disney XD's 'DuckTales' 'Hamilton' Star Lin-Manuel Miranda Joins Disney XD's 'DuckTales'

However, if you want to try your hand at being a hero with a secret identity, you should head to Duckburg.

Lin-Manuel Miranda must have enjoyed his last Disney experience as the songwriter for Moana, because he's about to lend his voice to Disney XD's biggest nostalgia TV project. OK, not quite, but the Tony Award-wining "Hamilton" scribe Lin-Manuel Miranda is headed for "DuckTales".

While the original Fenton Crackshell was Scrooge McDuck's accountant, this new Fenton is a scientist.

The show's executive producer Matt Youngberg said Miranda "came to mind instantly for the role" because his "rapid-fire earnestness paired with his wide-eyed yet determined optimism made him the ideal person to yell 'BLATHERING BLATHERSKITE!'" Strongly agree. But that's not the only change that was made when the character was re-imagined for the new series. "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. Co-producer Francisco Angones says the character of Fen has Latin-inspired roots, purposely developed for Miranda by him and executive producer Matt Youngberg.

EU Parliament head rejects May's charge
Juncker said that some of the bloc's weaknesses played a role in the outcome of the British referendum to leave the union. European Council President Donald Tusk has urged "mutual respect" ahead of Brexit negotiations.

In the original "DuckTales", Fenton accidentally activated the Gizmosuit by uttering his catchphrase, "blatherin' blatherskite".

While reboot fatigue has been prevalent these days, we're been ridiculously excited for Disney XD's DuckTales, which boasts an wonderful voice cast that includes Bobby Moynihanm, Ben Schwartz, Danny Pudi, Kate Micucci, Toks Olagundoye, Beck Bennett, and David Tennant.

The Broadway-Hollywood hyphenate and "Hamilton" creator is now joining the voice cast of "Duck Tales" on DisneyXD, Disney said in a statement.

The series, produced by Disney Television Animation, has already been picked up for a second season.
