'Mighty Ducks' Reboot: First Photo Of Emilio Estevez As Coach Bombay Released

The very first photos of Emilio Estevez as coach Bombay from the upcoming Mighty Ducks reboot have finally been released and fans are loving it!

As you may have already heard, Disney+ is set to release a "Mighty Ducks" TV series reboot in the near future.

This is a major win for all the '90s kids out there!

The original "Mighty Ducks" movie was released in 1992.


In case you haven't seen it, it's about a young lawyer, Gordon Bombay, who gets busted for driving under the influence, and in order to pay his dues, he must coach a kids hockey team.

While Gordon has some experience playing hockey, he isn't all that keen about coaching an amateur team.


But in a classic, uplifting, Disney fashion, he eventually comes around leads the team to victory.

The movie's success spawned not just one, but two sequels, as well as a cartoon series.


D2: The Mighty Ducks in 1994, D3: The Mighty Ducks in 1996, and an animated series.

The original cast starred Emilio Estevez, Joss Ackland, Lane Smith, Josef Sommer, Joshua Jackson and Elden Henson.


The upcoming TV series reboot, however, is going to be bringing in some new faces, including Lauren Graham and Brady Noon.

Also joining the cast are Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Maxwell Simkins and De’Jon Watts.

It's gonna be a full house!

Most importantly though, they will be bringing back a familiar face to reprise his role as coach Bombay, Emilio Estevez.
