‘Smash’ Duo To Voice First Disney Junior Original Movie

Telepic to premiere in summer 2014

“Smash” alums Christian Borle and Megan Hilty will join Tom Cavanaugh as the lead voices in the first original movie for kiddie network Disney Junior, “Lucky Duck.”

Borle plays a rubber duck who is accidentally tossed off a cargo ship and finds himself in search of the perfect home. Hilty and Cavanaugh play misfit tub toys he finds along the way.

“Lucky Duck” is slated for a summer 2014 premiere on Disney Junior with subsequent debuts around the world. Don Kim (“The Adventures of Chuck and Friends”) will direct from a script by Michael G. Stern (“Imagination Movers”), with Irene Weibel and Colin Bohm exec producing for Nelvana Limited (“Handy Manny”) in association with Disney Junior. Rick Garcia and William Malpede (“Rango”) are the composers.

“We hope that this new TV movie format will create an even stronger family viewing destination to further deliver on our brand promise of imaginative characters and storytelling with heart,” Disney Junior original programming veep Joe D’Ambrosia said.
