Disney+ to reboot two classics from your childhood: Here’s what we know


It’s the year of reboots.  With every major network either already airing or working on a reboot, it’s safe to say you may get to see your favorite classic TV series come back to life sooner rather than later.  Major networks may have the upper hand now, but don’t count out big streamers including newcomer Paramount Plus.  Their reboots include RugratsiCarly, The Stand, and Frasier.

But another streaming giant bringing the reboots is Disney+.  They’ve surpassed over 90 million subscribers, and ready to make good on their promise of giving us new episodes of The Proud Family.  But that’s not the only reboot on the way from the House of Mouse, a Mighty Ducks reboot is headed our way sooner rather than later.

Here’s what we know so far about the new versions of these two classic properties.

The Proud Family coming to Disney+

After being announced in late 2019, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is finally here.  Well not exactly, but it’s in production!

While there’s no premiere date yet, we do know a few details about what to expect. Disney+ gave us a little tease on the characters that will be returning for this new version: Everyone is accounted for except Sticky Webb, voiced by Orlando Brown.  With his past troubles, we’re not sure if he’ll return as the character, if another voice actor will replace him, or if the character won’t be a part of the reboot.

The potential absence of Sticky Webb may not be too bad, because the new girl in town Maya Leibowitz-Jenkins is entering the scene, and let’s just say she’s not fond of Penny and her friends.  Voiced by Keke Palmer, Maya is an activist adopted by a mixed-race couple.

The Mighty Ducks are going to be a game-changer on Disney+

Another classic property getting a modern overhaul is the beloved Mighty Ducks franchise.

After being cut from the team one player takes matters into his own hands.  He may not be good, but Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) refuses to give up hockey, and with the help of his mother Alex (Lauren Graham) starts his own hockey team, changing the game in The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.

The team reaches out to Gordon Bombay played by Emilio Estevez in the original films for help, but the problem is he hates hockey now.  Will they be able to get him out of his funk, and become a winning team?

“Once a Duck, always a Duck!” Estevez said in a statement last year when the show was announced. “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+.”

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers begins Friday, March 26. on Disney+
