New Details Revealed for ‘Mighty Ducks’ Series Coming Soon to Disney+. Recently, The Illuminerdi shared new details about the planned Mighty Ducks Series coming to Disney+. We now know that the series will begin filming in Vancouver, Canada sometime in February 2020. The new Disney+ Original Series is predicted to be 10-episodes long, with a runtime of 30 mins per episode.
“The new Mighty Ducks Series will follow 13-year old Evan, who after being cut from the Mighty Ducks junior division team, gets an assist from his mother to assemble their own ragtag hockey squad. The show will then follow their recruitment efforts to find unlikely players, a coach, and even a place to play.”
Though not much is known about the protagonist of the Mighty Ducks Series, we do know a bit about two other characters that will be joining Evan.
“Adib Samitar/”Sam” is an 11 to 13 year old African American or Somali boy. Sam has mastered skateboard riding and always does things his way. The thrill-seeker rarely turns down a challenge, even deciding to befriend Evan after a violent collision on his trusty board. He joins the squad after realizing that he will be allowed to be a renegade.”
“Jaden Koobler/”Koob” is an 11 to 13 year old boy, who is said to be heavyset. Koob will never be mistaken for an Olympian, but instead is a hardcore video game player whose skin is pale from long hours of marathon gaming in his downstairs man cave. Though he rarely breaks focus from his monitors, he proves to have an almost superhuman level of dexterity and reflexes that are worthy of a kung-fu master. Koob is wary of joining the squad and will need to be dragged out of his safe space.”
At first glance these descriptions may not seem like much, but what we do know is that each member of this new team will have noticeable “shortcomings” that will ultimately come into play and become their greatest strengths, with the proper coaching of course.
