Emilio Estevez Joins Cast of Disney Plus Mighty Ducks Series

Emilio Estevez has announced that he will be reprising his role as beloved Coach Gordon Bombay in the new Disney+ original series "The Mighty Ducks." 

"Once a Duck, always a Duck!," said Emilio Estevez, "and after 25 years, I am delighted to lace up my skates, put on Coach Bombay's jacket and return to play the iconic character for this new chapter in ‘The Mighty Ducks' franchise.  Likewise, I am thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds with my friends at Disney and Steve Brill, the original creator of the franchise, to join them on their exciting new platform, Disney+."
 
"It was an easy decision to bring back the Quack Attack with a modern and fresh twist," said Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+. "For a generation, ‘The Mighty Ducks' stood for teamwork, friendship, and heart and we're excited to see the Ducks fly together once again and bring the franchise to new audiences around the world.  We are thrilled to have Emilio Estevez reprising his iconic role."

Lauren Graham has also joined the cast along with Estevez, Brady Noon, Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O'Reilly, Maxwell Simkins, and De'Jon Watts.
