But Fenton has a secret: When he's not tinkering away in Gyro's lab, he's fighting crime in Duckburg as his heroic alter ego, Gizmoduck!

Lin-Manuel Miranda has joined the voice cast of Disney's upcoming revival of DuckTales.

Award-winning actor, playwright, and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda has had quite the year - and he shows no signs of slowing down.

It was a mostly even match in front of almost 30,000 fans at Balaidos Stadium, but United had most of the significant chances. Until the goal United's finishing had been poor with Celta keeper Sergio Alvarez thwarting them several times.

DisneyXD says Lin-Manuel Miranda, a "lifelong DuckTales aficionado", will be playing "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".

Based on the original cartoon of the same name, which aired from 1987-1990, DuckTales follows the adventures of Scrooge McDuck and his nephews as they hunt for treasures around the world and fight off enemies after Scrooge's vast fortune. But that's not the only change that was made when the character was re-imagined for the new series.

Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse) serves as executive producer, with Francisco Angones as story editor and co-producer, and Sean Jimenez as art director. "His rapid-fire earnestness paired with his wide-eyed yet determined optimism made him the ideal person to yell 'BLATHERING BLATHERSKITE!'" As Gizmoduck he also worked for Scrooge as his bodyguard and part of his security staff.
