Have you guys ever seen a flock of ducks flying in perfect formation? It’s beautiful. Pretty awesome the way they all stick together. Ducks never say die.

As it turns out, coach Gordon Bombay’s words may actually ring true.

“The Mighty Ducks” film franchise of the 1990s is in development to be revived as a television series, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting.

As the report says, ABC Signature put the potential intellectual property’s revival in early development after being approached by the film’s original screenwriter Steven Brill and producer Jordan Kerner about bringing the Ducks back.

There’s been no script penned yet and original film star Emilio Estevez, who played the aforementioned Gordon Bombay, isn’t attached to the project at the moment, the report continues.

The original “Mighty Ducks” was a Walt Disney Pictures film that came out in 1992 and grossed $50.7 million at the box office. It spawned a franchise that included two sequel films, “D2: The Mighty Ducks” and “D3: The Mighty Ducks,” as well as a 26-espisode animated series that ran between 1996 and 1997.

It’s unclear at the moment if this project would be a sequel to the original film’s stories or a straight reboot.
