As children, many who watched this movie and drew inspiration from its lighthearted story. As a staple of '90s adolescence and a VHS rite of passage, you might be wondering what happened to the kids from The Mighty Ducks?
This Disney film was so popular Disney founded a real hockey team named for the film, the Anaheim Ducks. The film has a few plot holes, for sure, but the kid actors from The Mighty Ducks carried the film past its weaknesses and into children's hearts everywhere. Enough so that it's only natural to want to know where the actors from The Might Ducks are now. Plenty of child actors from '90s movies barely made it past that decade with their careers intact - and a few of the cast from this film fared similarly - but overall they have had some positive experiences.
The Mighty Ducks are all grown up now. Some you'll barely recognize and others you'll recognize from their current careers onscreen. Take a walk down memory lane and catch up with everyone's favorite hockey-playing misfits.
