‘Mighty Ducks’ Reboot In the Works as a New Disney+ Original Series. Previously reported by The Hollywood Reporter, ‘The Mighty Ducks‘ was rumored to be getting a reboot from ABC Signature Studios. Though any future plans for television and film basically came to a screeching halt for most titles announced in 2018-early 2019, it became clear that the rumors about new content “coming soon” were based in a half truth.
Disney has kept a tight lip for years about their all new streaming service announced earlier this year, Disney+. So tight that it caused tons of confusion when projects seemed to get the green light one day, then “cancelled” seemingly out of no where. Turns out most of the content, including the rumors about a Mighty Ducks reboot, have proven to be true, but will find a new home on Disney+.
The Mighty Ducks series has not only been given the green light, but will premiere on Disney’s exclusive streaming service, Disney+ within the next few years. No official stream date has been given, but DiscussingFilm was the first to share the premise of the series in an exclusive report.
According to the report by DiscussingFilm, “The series focuses on a 13-year-old boy when he gets kicked off the junior division Mighty Ducks team, his mom decides to start their own team, finding players, a coach, and a place to play.”
Disney+ will give studios such as Marvel, Lucasfilm, Pixar, National Geographic, Disney, and more, the chance to bring new content directly to their consumers via Disney+ to help enrich stories, both old and new, without the hassle of over-saturating theaters or interrupted viewing.
