Quack, quack, quack! The Mighty Ducks are hitting the ice nearly 30 years after first taking flight. . Today Disney+ gave fans a first look at its original series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers premiering Fri., Mar. 26.
The Mighty Ducks returns in a brand new chapter starring Lauren Graham and Emilio Estevez in the iconic role he originated as legendary Coach Gordon Bombay.
In the 10-episode season set 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 Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
The series features a talented new team of up-and-coming young actors including Maxwell Simkins, Swayam Bhatia, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Taegen Burns, Bella Higginbotham, and DJ Watts.
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios. Estevez is an executive producer and Graham is co-executive producer.
