If you grew up in the 90s, then you couldn't escape The Mighty Ducks mania, whether you liked sports or not.
The first part of the film trilogy debuted in 1992, and told the story of attorney Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez), who was sentenced to coach a pee-wee hockey team as part of his community service following a DUI arrest. Thanks to Bombay's experience as a former hockey player, he helped the District 5 team (later named the Ducks) become successful and even secure a spot in the playoffs.
Critically, the movie, which also starred Joss Ackland, Lane Smith, Keenan Thompson and Joshua Jackson, tanked, but the audiences loved it, which prompted Disney to release two sequels: D2 (1994) and D3 (1996).
The franchise also inspired the creation of the Anaheim Ducks NHL team, and the late 90s animated series Mighty Ducks.
It's been a while since anyone talked about the beloved Ducks, and many of the actors have gone on to establish successful careers in Hollywood. But as it turns out, there have been a few people plotting to bring the team back.
