One of the things that’s often overlooked in the history of Disney cinema is their wide collection of sports movies. From Angels in the Outfield and Miracle to McFarland, USA, Disney has rarely met an uplifting, rags-to-riches sports tale it didn’t like. Before nearly all of them, however, was The Mighty Ducks. The story of a group of down and out kids and the man forced into coaching them was so popular it spawned two sequels.The movie saw a number of child actors who have grown into regular staples of TV and film as well as several adults who got some of their earliest work in the franchise.

But where are those cast members now? The answer may surprise you:

Emilio Estevez
Emilio Estevez was the leader of the rag tag group of hockey playing kids and was the only bona fide star in the first film. He’d been famous for seven years already, having starred in the both of classic "Brat Pack" films The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire. Then he played Billy the Kid in a pair of Young Guns movies. While Estevez has continued to act since Ducks, he’s been much more focused on directing in recent years. He both wrote and directed the Kennedy Assassination drama Bobby as well as his current project, the drama The Public about the people who live and work around the Los Angeles Public Library.
