Mighty Ducks fans, rejoice.
Discussing Film is exclusively reporting that a Mighty Ducks reboot is officially on the way. The half-hour series will shoot from February 10, 2020 until June 1, 2020 in Vancouver, Canada. So far who will be on the cast is unknown.
According to Discussing Film, the show will be based off a hockey mom who starts a hockey team of her own after her son gets kicked off a JV Ducks team.
The series focuses on a 13-year-old boy when he gets kicked off the junior division Mighty Ducks team, his mom decides to start their own team, finding players, a coach, and a place to play. The original film focused on reckless young lawyer Gordon Bombay who after getting arrested for drunk driving, he must coach a kids hockey team for his community service.
The series will eventually land on Disney Plus, Disney’s new streaming service launches November 12, perhaps during the second half of 2020. Disney Plus will include content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
Steven Brill, the man who wrote all three Ducks films and produced both sequels, will be an executive producer of the show. Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, George Heller, and Brad Petrigala were also named executive producers.
Last year, reports surfaced that a Mighty Ducks TV series was in early development at ABC Signature Studios. This report confirms that the series is indeed moving forward.
There have been three Mighty Ducks movies, The Mighty Ducks, D2: The Mighty Ducks, and D3: The Mighty Ducks, all of which have been cult classics among hockey fans.
