Disney+ has new episodes of ‘The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers’

The Don’t Bothers had a pretty rough start, but eventually, this rag-tag team became a family. Some characters found their confidence, like Koob, who performed a song from Les Misérables in front of Nick’s mom. Nick found a best friend in Evan. Sofi found a team that could make her succeed while being supportive. 

Although this series debuted earlier in 2021, new episodes of The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers premiere every week during the month of May.

The wait is finally over, Wildcats. Despite a fire in the auditorium and plenty of backstage drama between these high school students, the characters at East High School are ready to put on their spring musical: Beauty and the Beast. That won’t be without its challenges, though. 

Now, the cast of Beauty and the Beast will be competing with other schools, and they’ll be short one star, with Nini transferring to a performing arts school. Disney+ subscribers look forward to more original songs, jokes, and drama.

Season 2 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series premieres on May 14. In the meantime, episodes of season 1 are available for binge-watching.
