The Mighty Ducks Original Stars Are Returning For Reboot

The Mighty Ducks Original Stars Are Returning For Reboot

Fans of the Mighty Ducks movies will have been thrilled to learn that a new TV show is about to pick up where the series left off - with Emilio Estevez set to return as coach Gordon Bombay.

In fact, there's not much longer to wait until The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers premieres on Disney+, and now it's been revealed that one episode will feature most of the original cast.

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, there will be a huge reunion in episode six which will feature plenty of old favourites from the original movie trilogy.

Apparently, those making a comeback include Elden Henson as Fulton, Matt Doherty as Averman, Vinny La Russo as Adam Banks, Marguerite Moreau as Connie, Garret Henson as Guy, and Justin Wong as Kenny Wu.

Speaking to EW, creator Steven Brill said: "It starts with a fun encounter Coach Bombay has with Fulton - they have an interesting run-in on the street, reminiscent of ways they used to meet each other back in the early days."

Elden Henson added: "This chance meeting between Bombay and Fulton leads to a bigger story."

It seems Henson first heard the idea for the reunion when he ran into Brill on the streets of New York while filming Daredevil, and (thankfully) he immediately said yes.

Henson went on to add: "There is a Spirit of the Ducks gala where they're honouring the current coach and the history of the Ducks and that's what brings us all back together."

Emilio Estevez then went on to explain a little more about how the reunion ends up happening. He said: "We discover that Bombay hasn't been invited to the gala because he doesn't represent the best of what the Ducks stand for now; they've become this ultra-competitive, sort of new bad guys.

"But Bombay doesn't tell the gang that he wasn't invited to the gala, and it gets a little dark. He splits from the gang because of a miscommunication. So the beginning of the sequence is super positive and super exciting, but subsequently, it goes off the rails."

Things only get better from there, however, as Estevez explained: "He is reminded of the values that he instilled in them when they were young that led them to go on to lead productive lives, and that these were lessons they'd never forgotten, and maybe he did.

"Maybe he wasn't feeling like he was as valuable to their lives as he was, and he rediscovers that."

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers premieres on Disney+ on Friday 26 March.
