Mighty Ducks 4? Star and Producer Open to Doing a Sequel
Time published an oral history of The Mighty Ducks trilogy yesterday, and while reading the piece was certainly a wonderful trip through nostalgia (flying V! Iceland's Ivan Drago-wanna be coach!) for this writer, there's one interesting tidbit about the future: Mighty Ducks 4 could happen.
Both Joshua Jackson, who played second lead Charlie Conway in the series, and producer Jordan Kerner both said they'd be open for a new movie.
Jackson, who's best known to some as Pacey on Dawson's Creek (not American dudes though, we will always see him as Charlie Conway), told Time he believes "a fourth movie should happen," while Kerner said the following:

And I’ve been pitched a story two or three times. It hasn’t been the right story yet, but the idea of doing that is something Steve and I have talked about and actually Disney and I have talked about. So I’m not going to fuel the rumor mill that it’s going to happen, but I’m saying to you that the studio said to us, “We’d be interested if you come to us with the right story."
Ok, so this is a longshot -- stars of old hit shows or movies who haven't exactly lit up Hollywood lately will always say publicly they're open to the idea of a sequel/reunion -- but as someone who grew up on the trilogy, who actually tried to practice the "knuckle puck" on roller blades, and who truly believes this video here is the most epic scene in movie history, any sign of hope is better than nothing.
I read the Time oral history and I'm like...
