'The Mighty Ducks' reboot series is officially in the works

'The Mighty Ducks' reboot series is officially in the works”

Annoyingly, there's still no date for the launch of Disney+ in Ireland.

It looks as if The Mighty Ducks reboot is officially happening - 90s kids rejoice. Plans for the show were announced early a year ago but word on the project was quiet for a while there.

According to Discussing Film, a new TV reboot of "The Mighty Ducks" is set to arrive on the new Disney+ streaming service. Now, the show has found it's home.

Discussing Film says the series will focus "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". This would be a diversion from the plot of the original 1992 film, in which lawyer Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) winds up coaching a youth hockey team after being sentenced to community service for drunken driving.

The NHL awarded the Walt Disney Company an expansion franchise that began play in 1993 in Anaheim, Calif. Disney named the club The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim as a tie-in to the first movie.

Original screenwriter, Steven Brill will be joining Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, George Heller, and Brad Petrigala as executive producers for the new Mighty Ducks series.

The streaming service will also provide original content in the form of the live-action remake of Lady And The Tramp, Star Wars spin off The Mandalorian, and a High School Musical sequel series with the rather long title High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. But Screen Geek will let you know when one is announced. The movie spawned two sequels, and led to the naming of the National Hockey League team the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, later renamed the Anaheim Ducks.
