Looks like the 1990’s drama about a struggling hockey team is headed for a Disney remake!
The Mighty Ducks TV show is in early development and feature film star Emilio Estevez or any of the actors in the original film have not yet been approached. The drama could be given a Gilmore Girls style remake or something larger.. it’s not yet known.
The Might Ducks movie was a huge success in 1992 and starred Estevez as Gordon Bombay, a Minneapolis attorney who winds up coaching a junior hockey team as community service after a drunk-driving arrest.
Re-boots continue to be the flavour of the day at Disney and other networks – who have been scouring the archives for existing movies or TV shows to remake on a relatively low budget. Hopefully The Might Ducks gets the remake it deserves and Estevez comes on board!
