Here's the first trailer for 'The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers'

Theses aren't your dad's Mighty Ducks. Nearly 30 years after the original film made us all love hockey Emilio Esteves just a little more, The Might Ducks: Game Changers is set to premiere on Disney+ on Friday, March 26.

The 10-episode series is set in the present day in Minnesota. The Ducks indeed are now more mighty than ever — to the point that they're the evil empire they originally fought against. 

The new series sees 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) cut from the Ducks. He and his mother, Alex (Lauren Graham) enlist the help of coach Bombay to "rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game." (And if we had to guess, it's entirely possible that Gordon and Alex find a little love amongst themselves in the process.)

In addition to Noon, Esteves and Graham, the new series also stars Swayam Bhatia, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Taegen Burns, Bella Higginbotham, and DJ Watts. 

“The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” is being produced by ABC Signature, a part of Disney Television Studios. Steve Brill —  the original creator, writer and executive producer of all three films — also is on board as co-creator and executive producer. 

Disney+ is the streaming service from Disney that encompasses all of that company's content, as well as serving as the home for all things Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar and National Geographic. The service costs $6.99 a month (that's set to go up by $1 in late-March) or $69.99 a year if you pay annually. 

Of you can make use of the excellent Disney+ bundle, which gets you Disney+, the basic Hulu service and ESPN+ for just $12.99 a month. (That price also will increase in March.) That's effectively getting you three services for the price of two.

And if you're really serious about saving money, you should check out the Disney+ bundle and add Hulu With Live TV into the mix. That'll cost you $71.99 a month — or just $7 more to add on Disney+ and ESPN+ than if you were getting Hulu With Live TV on its own. And it's tough to beat that — especially with as much as it lowers the ESPN+ cost. (It also may well sway you in the competition of YouTube TV vs. Hulu.)

Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ are all available on every major modern streaming platform, including Roku and Amazon Fire TV (they're the two biggest). They're also on Android TV and Apple TV, on various smart TV systems, on iOS and Android, and available in a web browser.
