She spoke about her Mighty Ducks experiences before she was offered the role.
“I was totally familiar with it and I know I saw it in the theater, but when I look at what year it came out, I believe it was late 1992,”Graham said. “That was the year I graduated from acting school and I was catering, waitering, tutoring — I had just come back to New York — and I was pounding the pavement and just starting out. I don’t ever, ever remember going to the movies, both for time and money. So, I may have seen it later.
“The nostalgia for those movies goes beyond the movies themselves. It also includes all of the other movies that these cool actors were in. The Breakfast Club to St. Elmo’s Fire. For those who play Breakfast Club Bingo at home, I’ve now worked with Molly Ringwald and Emilio, so I’m making my way through the list.” Graham and Duhamel are also on board.The Mighty Ducks Game ChangersAlso stars are Maxwell Simkins and Swayam Bhattia Luke Islam.
