The Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of “Hamilton” will voice Duckburg hero Gizmoduck, also known as Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera. The character is an intern with Scrooge McDuck’s mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose. 

Grateful for you. Can't wait for you to see it this summer.

Of Miranda’s addition to the team, “DuckTales” co-producer and story editor Francisco Angones said they wanted Gizmoduck to have “Latin-inspired roots.”

“Growing up as a Cuban-American comics enthusiast, I was always hungry for a Latino hero to call my own,” he said in a press release. “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.”

 Fans are also very excited that Miranda is involved with the project:

@DuckTales OMGOMGOMG!!! Dream come true, @Lin_Manuel?!
