Emilio Estevez Will Return as Coach Bombay in The Mighty Ducks Disney+ Series
Jeremy Dick - January 28, 2020


The original Mighty Ducks movie star Emilio Estevez will be returning in a lead role for Disney's sequel series for Disney+. According to a new report from The Illuminerdi, Estevez will be reprising the role of Coach Gordon Bombay for all ten episodes of the half-hour series, linking the new show to the original movie trilogy. Better yet, Estevez will be one of the series leads, meaning he's going to play a prominent role in the story and won't be delegated to sparse cameos throughout the season. Mighty Ducks fans, it's now safe to start getting excited!

The Mighty Ducks Disney+ TV Series will follow a 13-year-old boy and his mother looking to start their own hockey team after he is kicked off the local Mighty Ducks junior division. They're tasked with looking for players and a place to play, and they also have the challenge of finding a new coach. Of course, given today's news of Emilio Estevez being involved, it now seems apparent that Gordon Bombay will be that coach, stepping back up to coach a young team of Mighty Ducks once again after having a very successful go at it in the 1990's.

Casting information has yet to be confirmed for the other cast members, but some brief character descriptions give us some hints about the younger characters who'll be appearing on The Mighty Ducks series. This includes Nick, a shy kid who always plays video games; Nick, who likes to pretend his has his own imaginary TV show; Mary, described as the popular girl both on the team and at school; and Lauren, a social outcast who "likes to wear wings and a cape at school and pretend she's a fairy magician." So far, it sounds like we've got the perfect set of young adults to form the new Mighty Ducks.

Released in 1992, the original Mighty Ducks movie starred Estevez as Gordon Bombay, an attorney who's arrested for DUI and ordered to coach a youth hockey team as a part of his court-ordered community service. Bombay takes to it, and reassembles his old Ducks in a 1994 sequel to form Team USA and represent the United States in the Junior Goodwill Games. A third and final movie, released in 1996, sees Bombay pass off his coaching responsibilities to someone new, though Estevez is still featured prominently in the sequel. What the former Mighty Ducks coach has been up to in the years since has remained a mystery, but we'll finally find out when we check back in with him for the upcoming Mighty Ducks series.

Production on the project is set to begin this March in Vancouver with a wrap planned for July, and no release date on Disney+ has yet been set. James Griffiths (Cuban Fury) will direct all ten episodes of The Mighty Ducks series, with original trilogy screenwriter Steven Brill and producer Jordan Kerner also on board. Alongside Brill, Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, George Heller, and Brad Patrigala executive produce. This news was first reported by The Illuminderdi.

I'm very excited for this. Hopefully it can live up to the first 2 films. Now does anyone know if this is a hard reboot or a soft reboot?

Maybe Bombay can go recruit Goldberg to kick his drug habit, go to rehab and become the goalie coach.

Too soon?

Too deep for a kids show??

He's almost the age now that Hans was in the first film, so he's a little too old to play the hotshot new coach. If Disney knows what's good for them, it will be a continuation and not a reboot at all.

I still would have thought Joshua Jackson would have been better, basically have him return the same way Bombay did in the first film... and Bombay would be the Hans figure to Charlie.

Wow! When was the last time Emilio Estevez acted in anything? I can't even remember. Seems like he mostly just directs television nowadays. This could be interesting.

I wonder if Hockey is even a thing anymore as it was when Mighty Ducks movies were made last I remember NHL was doing bad that one year they claimed bankruptcy. Whatever really Disney+ has proven to be successful not just because of MCU or Star Wars but most of their classics and Fox Library.

I loved the first movie, but the sequels seemed lacking in different respects. Hopefully this will do okay, though.

Can they bring back Connie too? Love me some Margarite Moreau.

It's sad to think that two of the original Ducks were in the headlines this past year for all the wrong reasons.

Jussie Smollett was Terry Hall, the brother to the kid from People Under The Stairs....that oddly was not invited to come with in D2, and Adam Weiss, Goldberg the Goalie, just got arrested for a second time for his woes with Meth. If you see a pic of him, he's ultra skinny and looks like he's 60.

A movie about homeless people taking over a library, ends with far too much man nudity for my tastes.
