Power Rangers Movie Reboot

One of the movies I’m personally looking forward to coming out in 2017 is the reboot of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  The reboot, Power Rangers, isn’t going to resemble the 1993-96 TV series nor the 1995 movie.

For those of you who haven’t watched the trailer, check it out:

Some of the things we know, so far, as curated by Screen Rant is as follows

These Rangers aren’t the first

In the trailer for the movie, it is inferred that Rita Repulsa has killed at least one ranger prior to the movie.

A darker, more serious yet fun film

Some are comparing the remake as a bit darker version of the original movie and TV series.  Between the costumes -Rita Repulsa’s is creepier, right? – and the more thriller movie based music, it doesn’t look like the same old Power Rangers  I grew up with.

I’m fine with this, cause it seems like the script has brought in elements of The Breakfast Club in the movie.

Stand alone from canon

For anyone who has seen the series knows that the show followed one story arc from the first season through Power Rangers in Space.  After the final episode of Power Rangers in Space aired, each of the following season/series followed it’s own.

In this case, the movie is acting as a complete reboot.  Which will give the studio that owns the film enough room for possible sequels, which are planned.

Jason & Kimberly Love story…at at least a kiss

As we saw in the teaser trailer, Jason and Kimberly share a kiss.  Considering this is a reboot, and there’s no Tommy in the picture, there is no surprise that there is some room for the writers to have fun with the story line, right?
