Emilio Estevez is set to come back and reprise his role as Coach Gordon Bombay in the new Disney+ original series The Mighty Ducks. This confirms that the series will be a continuation of the classic 90s films.
Estevez will join the previously announced cast that includes Lauren Graham and Brady Noon along with Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Maxwell Simkins and De’Jon Watts. I’ve got a couple photos from the set of the film to share with you as well featuring the cast.
The movie is set in present-day Minnesota, and the Mighty Ducks have “evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan (Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex (Graham) 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 (Estevez), they discover the joys of playing just for the love of the game.”
