The Mighty Ducks are skating back into action on the upcoming original series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, but things are different this time. As you’ll see in the first trailer for the series below, the Ducks are the villains this time around. Some things never change, though, and it wouldn’t be a piece of the Mighty Ducks movie mythology without Coach Gordon Bombay (Emilio Estevez) involved. Granted, this isn’t the same hopeful and inspiring Bombay fans will remember. At least, not yet.
As it turns out, though, he might not be the only cast member from the original trilogy of films appearing on the show. Asked directly at the series’ panel about whether or not Joshua Jackson would return to reprise his role as Charlie Conway, former team captain of the Ducks, executive producer Steve Brill–who also wrote all three movies–wouldn’t deny it.
“We’ve talked to Josh over the years in developing this, and he’s part of the family and part of the group and him and everyone else when and where they show up is an open exciting question,” While that’s not a confirmation, it certainly sounds like seeing Charlie on the ice one more time could be in the cards.
