‘Mighty Ducks’ TV Series Reportedly Coming To Disney+

Discussing Film is now reporting that the concept will be reignited for a new TV series, which will be broadcast on the Disney+ platform.

Disney+ streaming service will be the home of Disney, Star Wars and Marvel. And the future of Star Wars will lie within Disney Plus.

According to reports, the series is set to focus on a 13-year-old boy who gets kicked off the Mighty Ducks junior division side (seriously), so his Mum decides to form an entirely new team, gathering players, a coach, and a new arena.

It has also found its showrunners and plot.

While you might think there are 100 different ways a potential reboot series could use the OG Ducks universe to its advantage, apparently the way they're going with it is "The Ducks are the Hawks now".

Emilio Estevez starred in the original 1992 film as a lawyer forced to coach a kids hockey team as community service after a drunk driving arrest.

It's now undetermined whether the original cast will be making a comeback in this new TV series, but from what we know so far, the show will be about a 13-year old boy whose mom assists him in creating a new hockey team after he was kicked off his own.

Last year, The Hollywood Reporter said that Steven Brill, Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, George Heller and Brad Petrigala would be acting as executive producer for the series.

The film warmed the hearts of audiences everywhere and even led to the production of two sequels, as well as an National Hockey League team name inspired by the Mighty Ducks. I have fond memories of an animated series. The original Mighty Ducks won't be available for streaming though. Leave your thoughts and comments below, or on our social medias.
