‘Power Rangers’ to return to the big screen in live-action reboot
It’s morphin’ time!
After a 17-year absence, the Power Rangers are set to go-go back to the big screen.
Saban and Lionsgate Entertainment announced that the colorful, Zord-building group will indeed be making a comeback to movie theaters. So far, no official release date has been revealed, but Power Rangers fans are no doubt excited to see their favorite heroes’ long-awaited return. It will be the group’s first theatrical appearance since Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie was released to critical failure in 1997.
So they are remaking the Power Rangers movie. My Wednesday has been made.

The movie appears to be a reboot of the franchise, meaning that producers will likely be searching for new teenage actors to fill the roles. In other words, for the first time in years, it looks like someone other than Jason David Frank will assume the role of Tommy the Green Ranger, as Frank is now 40 years old.
A new mighty morphin power rangers movie? My inner child has never been more excited than right now.

In addition to Turbo and its predecessor, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie, the Power Rangers franchise has spawned 17–yes, 17-live-action TV series since its American debut in 1993. The most recent of the series, Power Rangers: Super Megaforce, premiered on February 15, 2014.
