D2: The Mighty Ducks is a 1994 American sports comedy film directed by Sam Weisman. It is a sequel to the 1992 film The Mighty Ducks and produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Avnet–Kerner Productions. Former peewee ice hockey coach Gordon Bombay is a star in the minor leagues and is expected to make it to the National Hockey League soon. However, after a career-ending knee injury, he returns to the Blukeville district of Minneapolis. Bombay is then offered a chance to coach a team representing the United States in the Junior Goodwill Games. Team USA consists of many of the old Ducks, in addition to five new players with special talents. The lure of celebrity becomes a distraction to Bombay, who begins to neglect the team in exchange for a luxurious lifestyle.
