Smash stars Megan Hilty and Christian Borle will reunite—vocally, at least—when they both join the cast of Disney Junior’s first original movie, titled Lucky Duck.
The Wrap reports that Borle will star as a “plucky rubber ducky named Lucky who, after accidentally being tossed off a cargo ship, sets off in search of the perfect home.” On his quest, Lucky encounters a bunch of bathtub toys including sassy hippo Flo (Hilty) and nervous turtle Snap (Royal Pains’ Tom Cavanaugh).
Don Kim will direct, with a script by Michael G. Stern and music by Rick Garcia and William Malpede (the duo behind Rango). The flick is scheduled to premiere in summer 2014 on Disney Junior, in anticipation of a later international release.
