The classic 1992 feel good Disney Classic reboot, The Mighty Ducks, has finally found a director. Anya Adams (The Good Place) will be bringing the series to Disney+.
Production is set to resume for The Mighty Ducks reboot as early as the end of this month. The reboot was being filmed in Vancouver, Canada, but was halted due to lockdown laws. It will reportedly continue on August 31. The crew aim to complete principle photography by the mid December.
The DisInsider claims that Anya Adams will direct a few episodes of the new Disney+ series starring Emilio Estevez and Lauren Graham. Adams previously worked on Netflix’s GLOW which was also delayed because of lockdown.
It’s not really a reboot…
Esteves, now 58-years-old, will return as Coach Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks series which will be available for streaming exclusively on Disney+.
The new series will take place in present-day Minnesota, where the youthful Mighty Ducks team are champion contenders.
The story focuses on a 12-year-old boy, Evan — played by Brady Noon from Good Boys — who unfairly gets ejected from his hockey team without so much as reason. His mother — played by Gilmore Girls’ Lauren Graham) — helps Evan start a new team. Coach Bombay, who’s now retired,. eventually agrees to coach the team.

Writer of the original trilogy, Steve Brill, is also returning as co-creator and writer of the Disney+ series with Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspaas showrunners.
“After 25 years, I am delighted to lace up my skates, put on Coach Bombay’s jacket, and return to play the iconic character for this new chapter in The Mighty Ducks franchise,” Estevez said following in an interview. ” I am thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds with my friends at Disney and Steve Brill, the original creator of the franchise, to join them on their exciting new platform, Disney+.”
Is Joshua Jackson returning for The Mighty Ducks reboot?
Micky believe that we might even see a Joshua Jackson cameo in the new series, however, nothing has yet been confirmed.
Is Joshua Jackson returning as Charlie Conway in the Disney+ Mighty Ducks series?
Although he’s more commonly known for his role as Pacey in the 90s hit teen drama Dawson’s Creek, Jackson first claim to fame was playing Charlie Conway in the original Mighty Ducks film trilogy when he was only 15-years-old.
According to our sources Jackson was set to play the new coach but he turned it down for personal reasons, so we wonder if he’ll actually have cameo in the series.
