Smash Stars Megan Hilty, Christian Borle to Reunite on Disney Jr's Musical Animated FilmProduction has begun on Disney Junior's First Original Movie LUCKY DUCK, the music-filled, animated adventure at sea starring the voices of Christian Borle and Megan Hilty (both of "Smash"), and Tom Cavanaugh ("Royal Pains"). The movie follows a plucky rubber ducky named Lucky (Borle) who, after accidentally being tossed off a cargo ship, sets off in search of the perfect home. Along the way, he teams with a group of misfit tub toys including a sassy hippo, Flo (Hilty) and an apprehensive turtle named Snap (Cavanaugh). The movie is slated to premiere in summer 2014 on Disney Junior in the U.S. and thereafter on Disney Junior channels around the world. The announcement was made today by Joe D'Ambrosia, Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Junior.

D'Ambrosia said, "We're eager to introduce young kids and their parents to our first Disney Junior Original Movie, an exciting adventure with a heart-warming message about never giving up, despite all odds. 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."

The movie opens in a toy factory where Lucky and a menagerie of other tub toys are going through inspection. After being rejected for a broken squeaker, Lucky fortuitously winds up in a shipping crate with approved toys - and thus begins a touching adventure that leads him to new, lifelong friends who love him just the way he is.
