Coach Bombay Returns
Star Emilio Estevez reprises his role as Coach Bombay in the new show, set in present-day Minnesota 30 years after the original Mighty Ducks film. Estevez stated last year,
After 25 years, I am delighted to lace up my skates, put on Coach Bombay’s jacket and return to play the iconic character for this new chapter in The Mighty Ducks franchise. Likewise, I am thrilled to return to my old stomping grounds with my friends at Disney and Steve Brill, the original creator of the franchise, to join them on their exciting new platform, Disney+.”
Agnes Chu, Senior Vice President, Content, Disney+ stated,
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. We are thrilled to have Emilio Estevez reprising his iconic role.”
