In the third episode of this series, the Ducks get scholarships to Eden Hall Academy, a high ranking prep school. But as freshmen, they will have to face the snob varsity team...Written by

The name "Eden Hall Academy" is an amalgamation of the Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie and private schools Cretin-Derham Hall and Saint Thomas Academy. In addition, Eden Hall's commitment to excellence in varsity hockey may or may not be modeled after Shattuck-St. Mary's, a boarding school in Faribault, MN, that has taught the likes of NHL stars Jonathan Toews, Zack Parise, and Sidney Crosby.

D3:THE MIGHTY DUCKS is the follow-up to the original MIGHTY DUCKS, and its sequel, D2: THE MIGHTY DUCKS. Although it is not as good as the others, it is enjoyable at times, and has a very good storyline. It has all of Ducks attending college at Eden Hall University, where they are considered worthless scrubs. In order to prove themselves, they need to beat the Eden Hall varsity squad. The reason this movie is lacking is because Emilio Estevez, the standout star of the previous 2 movies, disappears 5 minutes into the movie, and does not even make another appearance until the end. Another reason is because some fan-favorites from the first two did not make it to the third, including the Hall brothers, Jesse and Terry, Peter, and Karp. Although the movie recieves a huge lift when Dean Portman returns to the squad and helps them win the game against the varsity team, it does not have the same feeling of a camaraderie as the first two. This could have been a great movie, if certain changes were made. It is still an enjoyable family movie.
