Lauren Graham is an award-winning actress best know for her roles in Parenthood and Gilmore Girls. Brady Noon recently starred in Good Boys, and can next be seen in the comedy Marry Me opposite Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson.
The 10-episode series will begin production later this month and will be filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Here is the official synopsis from Disney:
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 (Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom Alex (Graham) set out to build their own ragtag team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of competitive youth sports.
The Mighty Ducks was the first film in The Mighty Ducks film series. The 1992 sports comedy drama centered around a youth league hockey team, and starred Emilio Estevez. There have been rumors Estevez would be reprising his role as Gordon Bombay in the series, however those talks are still on going and nothing has been confirmed.
The new Mighty Ducks series is set to premiere later this year on Disney+. In the meantime, you can watch all 3 Mighty Ducks movies now on the streaming service.
