Earlier this year, Disney announced that a brand new “Mighty Ducks” series would be coming to Disney+ and filming was put on hold in March due to the Coronavirus.
According to a DGC-BC production list, The Mighty Ducks is expected to resume filming in Vancouver, Canada on August 31st. Filming is set to wrap by the end of the year, on December 17th.
Canada has allowed filming to get underway; however, anyone coming into the country from the US will need to comply with travel restrictions, which means they cannot have any symptoms of coronavirus and they must be able to quarantine for 14-days.
As with everything right now, dates are subject to change, and things could be delayed further. The series had previously been announced as coming to Disney+ later this year, but I’d expect it to be delayed.
The new show consists of 10 episodes and will take place 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 (Bradly Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex (Lauren 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 (Emilio Estevez), they discover the joys of playing just for the love of the game.
