Disney+ created the original series, ‘The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers’

This streaming platform has several original shows, exclusive to subscribers. That includes the Star Wars live-action series The Mandalorian, Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and the series, The Mighty Ducks: Game Chargers, a spinoff of the original film, The Mighty Ducks.

In this series, The Mighty Ducks continued to be a great team, now too obsessed with winning and their future careers with hockey. However, Gordon Bombay was no longer the coach behind their success. He has a completely different job.

Gordon Bombay returns to the ice for this Disney+ original series

Emilio Estevez returned to reprise his iconic role as Gordon Bombay, the legendary hockey coach, and player. Now a few years into the future, this character is in a bad place, having lost his college coaching job and working at a dilapidated arena.

Everything changes when he meets 12-year-old Evan Morrow (played by Brady Noon) and his mother/coach, Alex. After being cut from the Mighty Ducks, the young hockey player created his own team. Although Bombay originally wanted nothing to do with hockey, he decides to help out this team of underdogs.

“The beauty of doing a TV show is that you have 10 episodes, and you have five hours to tell your story, as opposed to a film where you have an hour and a half or two hours,” Estevez said during an interview with Screenrant.

“This allows Bombay’s character to develop and evolve over the course of the entire season, which is new for me because I’ve only done movies,” he continued. “This is the first time I’ve ever done a TV series, so it was an adjustment for me in so many ways.”
