The rest of the cast will be rounded out by: Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (Castle, The Neighbors) as Mrs. Beakley, and Kate Micucci (Milo Murphy’s Law) as Webby Vanderquack. Wait for it. There’s more! Alongside the announcement was this amazing video of the cast:
