"In a surprise announcement, the official Power Rangers website has updated with the news that a new Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers movie is on its way.
Saban Brands has partnered with The Hunger Games and Twilight distributor Lionsgate to make this new live-action Power Rangers movie a reality.
It's still very much early days, but the accompanying press release claims that "the new film franchise will re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world".
so basically they are taking the original power rangers/zyuranger sentai series and making a new movie series based on it.
however we all know damn well they cant make a power rangers movie without jason david frank aka tommy aka green, white, red, turbo red, and black ranger aka most popular ranger of all time aka has a cameo everytime saban needs money.
and since tommy was the sixth ranger/extra ranger they can just have the main team be highschool kids and have tommy come in as the badarse adult super ranger
it makes complete sense to me that they would reboot it though. go look at the original cast. the red ranger is out of shape. the blue ranger wouldnt do it anyways considering how some of the homophobic people working on the show treated him. the pink ranger doesnt need to do power rangers. the yellow ranger is sadly dead.
out of all the rangers left the only ones who could really reprise their roles well is jdf and johnny young bosch and while johnny is an awesome dude we all know when it comes to power rangers only jdf ever has anyway real influence on whether or not he can come back and the rest are just left waiting on whether or not saban needs some extra fan money.
so we will probably end up with an adult tommy leading a team of new mighty morphin rangers. which would coincide nicely with his role in the super mega legend war where he reprises his role as the green ranger
