The special is a co-production effort between Nelvana Studio and Disney Junior. Lucky Duck is directed by Don Kim (The Adventures of Chuck and Friends) and written by WGA Award winner Michael G. Stern (Imagination Movers). Nelvana’s Irene Weibel and Colin Bohm (Mike the Knight) serve as exec producers. Songwriters are Rick Garcia and William V. Malpede (Rango), with underscore by Frederik Wiedmann (Green Lantern: The Animated Series).
