The Ducks fly again!

Start working on your slap shots and knuckle-puck because The Mighty Ducks is coming back, thanks to Disney+. The streaming service is reviving the iconic '90s film franchise that starred Emilio Estevez and Joshua Jackson as a TV series, with Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham set to coach the next generation of rag-tag hockey players. The big twist? The Ducks are now the villains.

"In present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team," a description of the show reveals. "After 12-year-old Evan (Brady 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 first Mighty Ducks film came out in 1992 and instantly became a cult favorite, with two follow-up movies: 1994's D2: The Mighty Ducks and 1996's D3: The Mighty Ducks. And because of its lasting impact on pop culture and the devotion of its fans, Disney+ knew they had to achieve the perfect Flying V before bringing it back.

"It was an easy decision to bring back the Quack Attack with a modern and fresh twist," Agnes Chu, senior vice president of content at Disney+, said in a statement. "For a generation, The Mighty Ducks stood for teamwork, friendship, and heart and we're excited to see the Ducks fly together once again and bring the franchise to new audiences around the world."
