Emilio Estevez set to reprise 'Mighty Ducks' role for new Disney+ series


If you're anything like us, Disney's The Mighty Ducks and its sequels, D2: The Mighty Ducks and D3: The Mighty Ducks were formative parts of your childhood. It's been decades since the last film in the trilogy, but now Emilio Estevez, who played Coach Gordon Bombay, is returning for a new Mighty Ducks TV series on Disney+!

According to Entertainment Tonight, the new venture will comprise 10 episodes and will be based on the films. It also stars Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) who joins forces with coach Bombay (Emilio) to form an entirely new team when her son (Brady Noon) is cut from the team, which has become "an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey" squad.

Emilio is set to be an executive producer this time around, and the show will premiere sometime later this year.

"Once a Duck, always a Duck!" Emilio said in a statement. "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."

This is the second '90s reboot Disney+ has scored of late. Just this week, it was also revealed Rick Moranis is working on a new Honey, I Shrunk the Kids movie, which will star Josh Gad as his character Wayne Szalinski's son, who makes the same mistake as his dad when he accidentally shrinks his children.
