Disney+ Is Rebooting The Mighty Ducks
If you grew up in the '80s and '90s then you'll be very familiar with The Mighty Ducks.
The incredible Disney show inspired many of us to give ice skating a go and, naturally, loads of us sucked at it. But that doesn't take away from the magic and inspiration that the film series gave us as youngens.
Well, it seems like the Mickey Mouse Corporation wants to inspire another generation of kids by rebooting the franchise.
According to Screenrant, there have been rumblings for some time about a possible revival of the movie but in TV form. Discussing Film reports that the series will come under the Disney+ streaming service and filming will get underway in February next year.
Instead of the reboot focusing on the same old story, it looks like they're going down a different route.
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'.
The reboot reportedly has the director of the original 1992 film on board, as well as Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa, George Heller, and Brad Petrigala as executive producers.
The original franchise was about Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), an arrogant drink driving lawyer who has to coach a little league hockey team after he was picked up for behind over the limit behind the wheel.
In classic Disney form, Bombay slowly builds the team up from a bunch of hopeless hockey players to champions.
If you're a fan of Disney reboots (who isn't, am I right?) then you'll be pleased to know Disney+ is planning on rebooting Home Alone and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
Very little is known about both projects but at least we'll get to reimagine the magic all over again.
