The Mighty Ducks original cast are returning for a reboot
The new series will be available to stream on Disney+ from 26 March
Stars from the original Mighty Ducks film series are set to return to our screens for an episode of the new reboot series on Disney+.
One episode of the highly-anticipated series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers will feature most of the original cast, Entertainment Weekly has revealed.
There will be an exciting reunion in episode 6, with the likes of Elden Henson returning as Felton, Matt Doherty returning as Averman, Vinny La Russo returning as Adam Banks, Marguerite Moreau returning as Connie, Garret Henson returning as Guy, and Justin Wong returning as Kenny Wu, Entertainment Weekly has announced.
The creator Steven Brill said: "It starts with a fun encounter Coach Bombay has with Fulton - they have an interesting run-in on the street, reminiscent of ways they used to meet each other back in the early days."
"This chance meeting between Bombay and Fulton leads to a bigger story," Eldon Henson told EW.
"There is a Spirit of the Ducks gala where they're honouring the current coach and the history of the Ducks and that's what brings us all back together," Henson added.
Emilio Estevez explains in more detail how the reunion comes about. Estevez told EW: "We discover that Bombay hasn't been invited to the gala because he doesn't represent the best of what the Ducks stand for now; they've become this ultra-competitive, sort of new bad guys.
Estevez said that the moment in which his character, Bombay, reunites with the other characters is "great", "but Bombay doesn't tell the gang that he wasn't invited to the gala, and it gets a little dark. He splits from the gang because of a miscommunication. So the beginning of the sequence is super positive and super exciting, but subsequently, it goes off the rails."
However, Bombay's character is finally restored when he meets up with the original ducks, Estevez told EW.
He said: "He is reminded of the values that he instilled in them when they were young that led them to go on to lead productive lives, and that these were lessons they'd never forgotten, and maybe he did.
"Maybe he wasn't feeling like he was as valuable to their lives as he was, and he rediscovers that."
