The original cast of the 90’s classic Disney series, The Mighty Ducks are set to reunite for a special episode of the reboot series Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.
The Mighty Ducks are coming back!
Any kids from the 1990’s will remember coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) as he led the Ducks from the local Pee-Wee Hockey league, to the international Stage as Team USA.
The three films gave birth to the careers for child Actors such as Joshua Jackson, Marguerite Moreau and Kenan Thompson
From 1992-1996 the series generated over $120m worldwide in box office gross and became a juggernaut series for Disney with animated spin-offs, video games and even an NHL hockey team aptly named The Mighty Ducks.
It’s become a cult classic and it’s exciting to see the series debut on Disney Plus with original series creator Steven Brill, and Coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) back on board.
In the first episode to debut, we’ll also see a reunion of sorts with major cast members, Marguerite Moreau, Elden Henson, Vincent LaRusso, Garret Henson and Justin Wong return.
Protagonist Charlie Conway played by Joshua Jackson is notably missing from the original series, but don’t panic, this is to do with scheduling conflicts, and they hope to reunite Bombay and Charlie once more later on.
