Don Cheadle to Voice Donald in DuckTales Finale


Oscar nominee Don Cheadle is portraying Donald Duck as a guest star in the hour-long season finale of the DuckTales reboot on Disney Channel.

Cheadle will be featured in the episode titled “The Shadow War!” airing on Saturday, August 18, at 9:30 a.m. on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD. The season finale of DuckTales will also include the voices of Lin Manuel-Miranda, Catherine Tate and Kimiko Glenn, who are reprising their roles as Gizmoduck, Magica De Spell and Lena, respectively.

Cheadle commented: “It’s an awesome opportunity because there are only so many roles that you look forward to playing as an actor. You’ve got to do your homework and bring your A game when you’re trying to voice Donald Duck.”

The second season of DuckTales is slated for broadcast later this year.
