The Mighty Ducks (1992) was a movie about the triumph of the underdog and how putting your whole heart into sport and life can make a huge difference.

Disney has given the 90s back to us with The Mighty Ducks original series coming to Disney Plus.

Disney Plus posted pictures on Twitter of the new show in production with the caption, “No Chill. Emilio Estevez is back as Gordon Bombay.”

The Mighty Ducks series, based on the hit ‘90s Disney movie franchise, is on its way. In the series, Estevez will star opposite lead Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham and young lead Brady Noon. Estevez also will serve as an executive producer.

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 is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they discover the joys of playing just for the love of the game.

“It was an easy decision to bring back the Quack Attack with a modern and fresh twist,” said Agnes Chu, SVP, Content, Disney+. “For a generation, The Mighty Ducks stood for teamwork, friendship, and heart and we’re excited to see the Ducks fly together once again and bring the franchise to new audiences around the world. We are thrilled to have Emilio Estevez reprising his iconic role.”

The show comes from the original film’s writer Steve Brill.
