This week, nearly 30 years after first taking flight, “The Mighty Ducks” returns in a brand new series, “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” on Disney+.
In present-day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex(Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay(Emilio Estevez), they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
The series features a talented new team of up-and-coming young actors including Brady Noon, Maxwell Simkins, Swayam Bhatia, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Taegen Burns, Bella Higginbotham, and DJ Watts.
Disney has released some images of some of the original cast returning to our screens for the new series including Elden Henson as Fulton along with Matt Doherty as Averman, Vinny LaRusso as Adam Banks, Marguerite Moreau as Connie, Garret Henson as Guy and Justin Wong as Kenny Wu.
They can be seen in the sixth episode of “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” series.
