Interview: Lauren Graham, Josh Duhamel, and the team talk Mighty Ducks: Game Changers

Everyone’s favorite underdog ice hockey team, The Mighty Ducks, is getting ready to fly again on Disney+. After a grueling first season, the Ducks are traveling to EPIC, where the best up-and-coming players from across the globe have gathered to show off their skills and take no prisoners. Formally known as the Don’t Bothers, the Mighty Ducks will need to use everything they’ve learned to survive their new training and overcome new challenges.

We had the pleasure of speaking with The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers cast about the upcoming season, including Lauren Graham and Josh Duhamel. Key players from the Mighty Ducks also took flight for the interview event, including Brady Noon, Naveen Paddock, Sway Bhatia, Maxwell Simkins, Luke Islam, DJ Watts, and Taegan Burns.

During our time, Graham shares how her character, Alex, has adjusted to life as the coach of the Mighty Ducks. Meanwhile, Duhamel gives us the details about his brand-new character, Coach Gavin Cole, and serenades us with a spirited rendition of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” The Mighty Ducks players also get in on the action by sharing stories from behind the scenes and revealing who the best player on the team truly is.

The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Season 2 will hit the ice of Disney+ on September 28. Quack! Quack! Quack!
