Quack, quack ... get ready to watch the Mighty Ducks in flight on Disney Plus. Mighty Ducks: Game Changers is a reboot/sequel series to the '90s-era youth hockey trilogy (which starred a young Joshua Jackson). Emilio Estevez reprises his role as inspiring coach Gordon Bombay and several former Ducks are set to make appearances in later episodes.
But Mighty Ducks: Game Changers puts a major twist on the underdog team we knew and loved in the films. Now, the Ducks are a junior hockey powerhouse and extremely selective about who makes the team. When 12-year-old Evan Marrow (Brady Noon) is cut, his mother Alex (Lauren Graham) encourages him to form a new underdog team. And they get the help of the Ducks' original coach, Gordon.

Mighty Ducks: Game Changers trailer
The trailer for Mighty Ducks: Game Changers opens by establishing the new status quo: the Ducks rule. This powerhouse team is now made up of superstar kids whose parents hire them personal trailers. That leaves some kids behind, which Lauren Graham's tenacious single mother character is determined to fix.
She reaches out to Gordon Bombay, who declares he hates hockey and kids — which is funny, since he owns an ice rink. Can Bombay take another ragtag team to the championship?
