Moore dropped out of the project last week, saying producers had started to move the character "in a different direction." She's signed on to voice a cat sheriff in the animated Disney Junior series Sheriff Callie's Wild West, which debuts in September.
Schaal was most recently seen as unhinged page Hazel on 30 Rock and also voices a character on Fox's Bob's Burgers.
