D2: The Mighty Ducks

D2: The Mighty Ducks

Synopsis of Movie

If you had five dollars for every movie that featured Icelanders as the bad guys, you’d have about five dollars. You can thank D2: The Mighty Ducks for that fiver. The sequel to the 1992 surprise hit The Mighty Ducks sent Disney’s favorite underducks into battle on the world’s stage, and with the U.S.S.R. down for the count, this “Miracle On Ice” would have to happen against another European opponent.

After injuring his knee in his pro hockey comeback, Mighty Ducks coach Gordon Bombay gets an offer from sportswear executive Tibbles. The exec’s company wants Gordon to return to coaching, heading up the USA’s Junior Goodwill Games squad. Bombay reassembles his scattered flock and recruits an ethnic cross-section of new players—Julie, Dwayne, Luis, Portman, Ken, and south central L.A. native Russ.

Gordon and the Ducks get sucked into the commercial hype of superstardom, but are rocked back to their senses after a brutal loss to the black-suited Icelanders. After keepin’ it real with a street hockey match back in Russ’ hood, the Ducks regroup for a finals rematch with those Nordic bad boys.

Not only was the film a financial success, it gave Disney a chance to show off the team uniforms for the company’s own NHL franchise, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. The studio went back to the pond for a third feature in 1996.
