1987 just called, and it is sooooo jealous of us right now. While the original run of DuckTales on Disney Channel was pretty good as is, the 2017 revival just got a whole lot better. Lin-Manuel Miranda has joined the DuckTales cast, and wow, have you ever been more excited for an animated cartoon in your life?
Okay, fine, for everyone who didn’t grow up watching DuckTales every day after school and on the weekends, Gizmoduck is actually Fenton Crackshel-Cabrerall (an intern forScrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose) by day, and Gizmoduck by night, one of Duckberg’s finest crimefighters.
If you think you’re excited about this, Miranda is even more excited. He’s even changed his Twitter picture to Gizmoduck.
Glad we all have the shared interest of being stoked for DuckTales this summer.
This casting announcement quickly sent shockwaves across the internet, and with good reason. The role was developed specifically for Miranda.
Now, Miranda is hands down the biggest Disney multi-threat out there. Last year, he brought the music of Moana to life. He’s set to star in the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel. He’s also doing the music for the live-action Little Mermaid. Missing anything? Probably. But we’ll get to that later. All together now: WOO-HOO!
