Emilio Esteves revealed why he rejected so many reboot efforts until Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. The Disney + series is available and many fans were amused to see Gordon Bombay back in the fold. The beloved actor spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the long road back to the track. In the conversation, it is revealed that Game changers it was just the latest iteration of a reboot effort. Steven Bril kept trying to appeal to Estévez, but to no avail. But, when the script was ready, the actor decided to give it a try. The darkness of Bombay as a bit borrowed and outcast helped seal the deal. However, it is not all doom and gloom for the former Ducks coach. There is a whole new generation of gamers who will need these wise gems of wisdom in one form or another. It also doesn’t hurt that fans have been clamoring for a revival of some kind for years.
“I didn’t really see where they were going to go with Bombay, I thought we had misled him,” he admitted. “Steven and the writers started talking to me about this idea that Bombay has been hiding, that hockey has not been good for him in the last two decades, that he is a guy who lives on the outskirts of the city and does not relate really with people. He’s not married. He doesn’t have children. It’s a bit of a mystery in terms of where he’s been. But it wasn’t a good place; it was a much darker place than the last time we saw Bombay. And that appealed to me. “.
“Over the years, there have been a lot of meetings, whether it’s through the Anaheim Ducks or various charities,” Estévez explained. Famously, I’ve turned them all down, whether it’s a meeting for Breakfast Club or The Outsiders or St. Elmo’s. Fire or Young Guns, all of them. “
He continued: “Fortunately, I have been able to star in films that have stood the test of time and have a long lifespan, so many people have wanted to see meetings of where they are now. So on the one hand, it’s a blessing to have been involved in that, but on the other hand, it’s like I rarely, if ever, do participate. So redoing a Mighty Ducks reunion with the reprise of this role was a big step. “
