Go Go Power Rangers!
It's been over 20 years since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers premiered, but our dreams of being karate-fighting, world-saving teenagers are just as vivid as they were in 1993. What better time for a movie, right? The Rangers are getting a new lease on pop culture life thanks to a reboot from the Lionsgate (the folks who brought you The Twilight Saga).
"The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever," says Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer in a press release. The Power Rangers creators at Saban, in a statement, called Lionsgate the "perfect home" for the Rangers. Well, let's hope that in true Lionsgate style, there's both action and romance here, because we never quite got over that relationship between the Pink and Green Rangers...
Where is the original cast now? Well, some of them are still Power Rangers (because that noise is still on TV), but others have moved onto different things.
