Fate Of 'The Mighty Ducks' Cast After the Show's Finale

This film tells us the adventures of an ice hockey team that goes from mediocrity to fame by the hand of an unconventional coach. It is one of the favorite films of the children of the 90's sports fans. We have been following lawyer Gordon Bombay for more than twenty years on his journey to train The Mighty Ducks as a sanction for drunk driving. This trip with the team will help him reconcile with sports, from which he was away since his failure in the final championship match.

The Mighty Ducks trilogy has set itself as a movie that pulls the heartstrings of viewers. The film was mostly about kids, except for Gordon, their coach. What makes the trilogy so memorable, are the kids; each one of them was remarkable and hilarious in their own way, putting so much life into the show. The success of the film inspired producers to make a couple of additional films, cartoons, and a hockey team in Anaheim, California. Let's see what happened to the actors who participated in this beloved movie.

MORE ABOUT THE SERIES

This movie quickly became a franchise as it was one of it's kind and also very enjoyable with lots of lessons to teach. The movie about kids and sports won over everybody's hearts and love. Funny enough, the initial version was intended to involve some adult romance and wasn't even scripted to be as amusing as it was until Disney told them to add more humor.
