D3: The Mighty Ducks (film) Gordon Bombay and the Ducks are back in Minneapolis fresh from the victories at the Goodwill Games. They have much to celebrate when they find out they’ve been given scholarships to the prestigious Eden Hall Academy. Once in the hallowed halls of Eden however, the Ducks, led by team captain Charlie Conway, lose some of their focus. They become the junior varsity of the Eden Hall Warriors, resist an aggressive new coach, and suffer indignities heaped upon them by the preppy varsity team who resent their coming to the school. Eventually the players bond with their coach and face a final test in an exciting showdown game against the varsity bullies. Even in the face of adversaries twice their size, the Duck spirit prevails. Released on October 4, 1996. Directed by Rob Lieberman.
