The voice talent includes David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Danny Pudi as Huey, Kate Micucci as Webby, Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley, and Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack.

Miranda, the creator and star of Broadway's 2015 smash hit Hamilton: An American Musical, has worked on multiple Disney projects recently.
