Lin-Manuel Miranda is relocating to Duckburg, because apparently the DuckTales reboot wasn’t awesome enough already.

Disney announced that the Hamilton multi-hyphenate will lend his voice to the fan-favorite role of Gizmoduck, whose secret identity was accountant Fenton Crackshell in the original series. 

Miranda’s character is getting an update to offer a more inclusive portrayal in the reboot — he’s now called Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera as a nod to his Latino heritage, and will appear as a brilliant young intern working for Scrooge McDuck’s personal mad scientist, Gyro Gearloose.
