This week, a ton of reports got here out concerning the upcoming The Mighty Ducks collection on Disney+. With heavyweights on the forged, together with one large returner, we’re studying much more details about the present, which is debuting later this yr.
What is the brand new collection about?
The Disney+ collection is a 10-episode collection primarily based on the 1990s movie franchise. The movie’s star, Emilio Estevez, is returning as a star and producer.
The present may also star Lauren Graham together with Brady Noon, Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Maxwell Simkins, and De’Jon Watts.
The official description of the collection from Disney+, “In present-day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan (Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex (Graham) set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports. With the help of Gordon Bombay (Estevez), they discover the joys of playing just for the love of the game.”
What Emilio Estevez says about returning
“Once a Duck, always a Duck!,” mentioned Estevez, “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+.”
The unique creator of all three movies, Steve Brill, is the co-creator and government producer of the brand new collection. Graham is an government producer as properly.
The present is produced by ABC Signature Studios, which is part of Disney Television Studios. The Mighty Ducks might be on Disney+ later this yr.
