A new spot for “The Mighty Ducks” trilogy is now available
For a limited time, “The Mighty Ducks” Trilogy is now streaming on Hulu and ESPN+. Starting today, March 16, and continuing until May 28, Hulu and ESPN+ subscribers can watch the original three films and upgrade to The Disney Bundle to stream the new original series “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” premiering March 26, only on Disney+. This marks the first time movies have been programmed across The Disney Bundle to support an original series premiere on one of the three streaming services.
In the 10-episode “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” season set in present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
The series features a talented new team of up-and-coming young actors including Brady Noon, Maxwell Simkins, Swayam Bhatia, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Taegen Burns, Bella Higginbotham, and DJ Watts.
“The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” is produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios. Steve Brill, the original creator, writer and executive producer of all three films, which spawned an NHL franchise, is back as co-creator and executive producer of the new series. Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (“The King of Queens,” “13 Going On 30”) are co-creators and will serve as executive producers and showrunners. Michael Spiller serves as executive producer / director on the series, with James Griffiths serving as director/EP on the Pilot. Emilio Estevez is an executive producer and Lauren Graham is co-executive producer. George Heller and Brad Petrigala of Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Jon Avnet and Jordan Kerner also serve as non-writing executive producers.
Tonight, in support of the trilogy debut and upcoming series, ESPN+ will also feature live coverage of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks @ Colorado Avalanche game, beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
