The upcoming “Mighty Ducks” Disney+ series looks to have found a director, as according to “The DisInsider”, Anya Adams will be joining the series to direct multiple episodes.
Anya Adams has previously directed episodes of other TV shows including Netflix’s GLOW, The Good Place. Black-ish, and Fresh Off the Boat.
The new show had begun production earlier this year, but was suspended when the Coronavirus situation arose and according to a DGC-BC production list, The Mighty Ducks is expected to resume filming in Vancouver, Canada on August 31st, with filming wrapping up just before Christmas on by December 17th.
Emilio Estevez is reprising his iconic role as beloved Coach Gordon Bombay in the new Disney+ original series “The Mighty Ducks.” Estevez will join previously announced series regulars Lauren Graham and Brady Noon. Also joining the cast are Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Maxwell Simkins and De’Jon Watts.
It will be set in present day Minnesota, where 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.
