The quack is making a comeback.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC Signature Studios is in early development for a TV series based on ‘The Mighty Ducks’ franchise.
A network is not yet attached to the series, but original trilogy screenwriter Steven Brill is reportedly working on a script in-house for ABC Signature.
Emilio Estevez, who played Mighty Ducks coach Gordon Bombay all three films, is not currently attached to the project.
“The Mighty Ducks” was released in 1992 by Walt Disney Pictures and grossed $50.7 million domestically despite being panned by critics. Two sequels — “D2: The Mighty Ducks” and “D3: The Mighty Ducks” — followed in 1994 and 1996, respectively.
This new project would be the second “Mighty Ducks” reboot after an animated series, which featured an alternate universe with a planet populated by humanoid, hockey-playing ducks, aired on ABC and the syndicated programming block “The Disney Afternoon” for 26 episodes starting in 1996.
