Emilio Estevez Reveals Why He Finally Said Yes To 'Mighty Ducks' Series

Emilio Estevez turned down quite a few projects that had hoped to revive The Mighty Ducks franchise.

The 58-year-old actor is now revealing why he finally said yes to return as Gordon Bombay in Disney+’s The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.

“Over the years, there have been a lot of reunions, whether it was through the Anaheim Ducks or various charities. Famously, I have rejected all of those, whether it’s a reunion for Breakfast Club or The Outsiders or St. Elmo’s Fire or Young Guns, all of them,” he recalled in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Fortunately I’ve been able to have starred in movies that have stood the test of time and have a long shelf life, so a lot of folks have wanted to see reunions of where are they now. So on one hand, it’s a blessing to have been involved in that but on the other hand, it’s like, I rarely, if ever, participate. So to come back do a Mighty Ducks reunion with replaying this role was a big step.”

He adds that when the idea for Game Changers came, Emilio says he wasn’t “in the headspace for it. I didn’t really see where they were going to go with Bombay, I sort of thought we had played him out.”

However, because Bombay was written as being hidden in plain sight and “that hockey hasn’t been good to him in the last couple of decades, that he’s this guy who’s living on the outskirts of town and not really engaging with people…it was a much darker place than the last time we saw Bombay. And that appealed to me.”

Emilio went on, saying that there’s been so many reboots lately and that was another layer into his hesitation in coming back to the franchise. But he ultimately decided that now was the time.

“The question is, are we at peak nostalgia yet? If we’re not, we’re pretty close. [Laughs] I was inspired to a certain extent by the idea that if I’m ever going to reboot a character, it’s probably now or it will never happen.”

'Mighty Ducks: Game Changers' TV Show Cast List - See Who's Playing Who!

The Mighty Ducks are back nearly 30 years after the release of the original movie!

Disney+ just premiered the new television series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, which features original star Emilio Estevez back as Gordon Bombay.

Here is the show’s official synopsis: In present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex, set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge then cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.

The first episode of the series premiered on Disney+ on Friday (March 26) and the rest of the 10-episode first season will debut weekly on the streaming service.

The teaser also features Evan making a killer shot on goal, which recalls Charlie Conway’s (Joshua Jackson) triple deke move to win the game against the Hawks in the 1992 movie.

Emilio previously played the coach in three Mighty Ducks films.
