Trivia / The Mighty Ducks


The Animated Series

The Film Series

  • The Danza: Marguerite Moreau playing Connie Moreau.
  • Defictionalization: The NHL franchise. Though when they ditched the uniforms from D2 and the "Mighty" part, they became a respectable franchise and even won The Stanley Cup.
  • Deleted Scenes: At least two in the first sequel. The first took place after Team USA follows Bombay on the golf cart roller blading. Portman and Fulton begin to bond, Coach Bombay and Ms. McKay get to know each other, and the scene ends with Fulton, Guy, and Jesse crashing the golf cart. The second involved the team members who didn't go to Rodeo Drive getting into a brawl with the Iceland team while hanging out at the beach.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Emilio Estevez agreed to reprise his role in the third film in exchange for a directorial job he had been angling for.
  • Real-Life Relative: Elden Henson (Fulton) and Garette Ratliff Henson (Guy) are brothers. Elden had to dye his hair black and use a stage name (he's credited as Elden Ryan Ratliff) so he could play Fulton.
  • Star-Derailing Role: Subverted with Jussie Smollett, even though he followed The Mighty Ducks with North, which got the "hated" review from Roger Ebert and tanked heavily. He would rebound in 2015 when he was cast as Jamal Lyon in the TV show Empire.
  • What Could Have Been:
  • You Look Familiar:
    • Actor Jack White appears in all three films, in two different roles. In the first two films, he was a referee. In D3, he played Coach Wilson, the Varsity team's head coach. White has been involved in many films where hockey was the main focus or part of the story, including this trilogy, mostly as what IMDb calls a "hockey technical advisor".
    • Scott Whyte played Gunner Stahl in D2 then came back for D3 as Scooter Holland.
