Last week we revealed breakdowns for new characters expected to appear in the second season of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.
Today, we have yet another set of exclusive character breakdowns, however this time they’re for a totally different Disney+ original: The Mysterious Benedict Society.
According to sources close to The DisInsider, we can confirm that Disney is looking to cast at least 7 brand new roles for the series’ upcoming second season.
The two biggest characters of the bunch, so far, are named Ana De Leon and Marlon.
Ana is described as Oprah or Barbara Walters type in her 50s-60s who is “smart, esteemed, and a no-nonsense interviewer”. She’s expected to be a one-off guest star set to be interviewing Tony Hale’s L.D. Curtain at some point in the season.
Marlon, on the other hand, is expected to be a recurring character in his 20s-30s who will be a right-hand man to Curtain. While he’s mostly positive, he is also a bit overconfident – to the point that he bullies most everyone else.
The studio is also looking to cast two students between the ages of 12-16 who are friends with the character Sticky, two people “anxiously” waiting in line to get onboard a cruise, and an equally impatient travel agent that works for a cruise company called Zephyr.
While it might not make sense how all the characters are connected, we can also confirm that these breakdowns are specifically for the first episode of the series second season, tentatively titled “A Perilous Journey.”
The rest of the principle cast is expected to return including the aforementioned Hale, alongside Kristen Schaal as Number Two, MaameYaa Boafo as Rhonda, Ryan Hurst as Milligan, Gia Sandhu as Ms. Perumal, Mystic Inscho as Reynie Muldoon, Seth B. Carr as Stinky, Emmy DeOliveira as Kate Wetherall, and Marta Kessler as Constance Contraire.
The series, which is based on the best-selling children’s books by Trenton Lee Stewart and revolves around an eccentric man who gathers four children to stop a global emergency, is expected to return later this year.
