D3: The Mighty Ducks

D3: The Mighty Ducks

Synopsis of Movie

Just when it seemed they had the world at their webbed feet, the Mighty Ducks found themselves in the underdog position again. For the third Mighty Ducks installment, Disney sent its roster of junior hockey players (whose feet were not actually webbed) back to school for a chance to prove that teamwork and determination always triumph over rich snobbery.

Coming off their medal-winning performance at the Junior Goodwill Games, the Ducks win scholarships to fancy prep school Eden Hall. Gordon Bombay, who coached the Ducks to all of their previous victories, turns the reins over to hard-nosed new coach Ted Orion. But that’s the least of the Ducks’ problems.

Eden Hall has a proud tradition of hockey champions, and all of them were white and male. The rainbow coalition of quackers doesn’t sit well with Dean Buckley or with the school’s varsity team, the Warriors. After dealing with warring pranks, bigotry and high school romance, the Ducks are forced to defend their scholarships on the ice, facing off against the fearsome Warriors.

Top-billed Emilio Estevez made brief appearances at the beginning and end of the film as Gordon, leaving the Ducks themselves as the stars of this feature. As with the earlier films, Disney got plenty of mileage in for the company-owned NHL franchise, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. After this installment, the franchise continued as an animated series, with super-powered, hockey-playing alien ducks replacing the human stars of the films.
