The film, according to TheWrap.com, concerns "a plucky rubber ducky named Lucky (voiced by 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)."
Hilty's stage work includes 9 to 5 and Wicked. Along with "Smash," her TV credits include "Sean Saves the World," and her film work includes "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return."
Tony Award winner Borle has performed in Peter and the Starcatcher, Legally Blonde, Mary Poppins, Spamalot and Thoroughly Modern Millie. His TV work includes "The Good Wife" and "Law & Order."
