Get ready to quack quack quack!
The Mighty Ducks is coming back, this time to the small screen. Emilio Estevez will be reprising his role as beloved Coach Gordon Bombay. The show will be airing on Disney+, and will also star Lauren Graham and Brady Noon.
According to reports, the premise will take place in present-day Minnesota. The Mighty Ducks are a very competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. Evan, played by Brady Noon, was unconventionally cut from the team, and he and his mom (played by Lauren Graham) are looking to create a team of misfits. They look for help from Gordon Bombay.
Estevez had this to say about the reboot:
"Once a Duck, always a Duck!, and after 25 years, I am delighted to lace up my skates, put on Coach Bombay’s jacket and return to play the iconic character for this new chapter in The Mighty Ducks franchise. Likewise, I am thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds with my friends at Disney and Steve Brill, the original creator of the franchise, to join them on their exciting new platform, Disney+."
My Two Cents
This franchise was a staple of my teen years in the 1990s. I LOVED The Mighty Ducks movies! This is beyond exciting and I hope some of the OG's return for a cameo (Joshua Jackson, this means you! We need Charlie Conway back!).
Join me in a good ole-fashioned quack fest (vid below)!
