The Tony winner, Lin-Manuel Miranda, will make his DuckTales debut as the beloved character Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera, who secretly is superhero Gizmoduck, on Friday, May 11th in this episode. He stops at GMA to show a fun promo clip from the “Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!” episode where we get to meet the new Fenton. It seems that Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera really wants to let everyone know about Gizmoduck (aka Blathering Blatherskite) but it seems that Gyro Gearloose does not want to let the cat out of the bag just yet. Gyro send Fenton to his room as punishment for a quick laugh.
The biggest question we still have is what the heck happened to Scrooge? Why is he some sort of horse and was that because of something that Gyro did or something that Mark Beaks’ did or did he get cursed? You can find out in a few days, but for now, watch the clip below.
DUCKTALES – “Beware the B.U.D.D.Y. System!” – Brilliant young scientist Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera is recruited by Launchpad who is feeling menaced by tech genius Mark Beaks’ newest invention. This episode of “Ducktales” airs Friday, May 11 (8:00 – 8:30 P.M. EDT) on Disney Channel.
We just love the fact that Lin-Manuel Miranda is playing Fenton/Gizmoduck.
