We finally got a new Power Rangers movie after decades waiting, I had been wanting one since I got back into the franchise back in 2005. I knew there was too much money to be made based on nostalgia alone for it not to happen but it sure took a long time but like a fine wine, nostalgia needs some time to reach its peak point. Sadly the movie doesn’t really feel like the remake of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers movie we all wanted but a totally different re-imagining that feels alien and out of touch. Luckily we had already gotten the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Movie we deserved as children.
Besides Santa Claus I can’t remember looking forward to anything as bad as I was for the Power Rangers movie. That poster filled my imagination with ideas of who that pig was and just how epic the battle was going to be. Hell the movie poster spoiled the return of Rita Repulsa on the show for me as I knew she had to be back in time for the movie. Everything I saw about the movie was awesome from the new suits the villains and Power Rangers had. Finally they looked like the Batman live-action movies and not spandex wearing heroes. There was no way they could mess it up.

The Power Rangers were getting a movie, I was quick to let my parents know that I was going to be there on release to see it. The poster intrigued me as I did not know who that pig monster was, surely he would be introduced in an episode that I hadn’t seen. Eventually the movie came out and I watched it and saw the origins of the new powers and I was delighted, it was everything I could ask for.
At a later time I see some previews for the newest season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and I see the zords and Ninja motif that we had been introduced to in the movie and I grow in excitement to see what’s going on. I watch the first episodes of the season and something is going horribly wrong, they are re-telling the story of the movie and contradicting everything I had just seen a few months before..was it no longer in continuity?

Kimberly Hart, the Pink Power Ranger in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers played by Amy Jo Johnson isn’t just the most iconic pink ranger and still beloved today but she was also many boys’ first crush. Definitely mine. What if I told you that she had an unauthorized spin-off film?
That’s right, in 1997 we saw the release of a drama TV movie about eating disorders on NBC and later aired on ABC family (which aired Power Rangers) and Lifetime (where I saw it) played by AJJ. So what does this have to do with Power Rangers?

As a kid I was always interested in all those fan clubs that were promoted whether on the action figures that I bought or even on my Kids Meal when I went to Burger King. I must’ve been too young to understand how they worked though since I don’t recall ever knowing how they worked.
Little did I know that the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers had a fan club and not only did it include all kinds of neat memorabilia but also a VHS tape that had exclusive content! As soon as I found that out I knew I had to find it to see what this “lost” Power Rangers footage included.

Some quick site updates since I thought it’d be nice to let people know what’s going on with the site. If you’ve noticed we’ve had Power Rangers posts every Thursday since we’re on the hype train to the new Power Rangers movie; I guess we can call it Morphin’ Thursday’s. They’ll continue at least until the movie is out. Similarly since Wrestlemania is also soon so as we started last week we’ll have “Wrestling Weekends” until Wrestlemania XXXII.

Last week we finished the last season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers which is a direct lead to Power Rangers Zeo. As you know Saban decided to change the format of Power Rangers with the fourth season and decided to follow the yearly sentai theme more closely and not only changing villains and mecha but also the suits. So let’s take a look at everything that the last season built up and if it delivered.
Before Zeo even began they aired some shorts leading up to the premier which is called “the Zeo Serial” which all the short together make another “episode” and it’s cool; This never aired where I lived but it would’ve gotten me super excited in fact as a kid I probably thought Power Rangers was cancelled as it got taken off the air after Season 3. I did find out about the other seasons not long after and even got to see a little of Zeo and Power Rangers Turbo but for the most part the franchise was dead in my area. Dragon Ball and Video Games kept me from being too sad about it though and I moved on. The Zeo serial works fine I don’t know why the fandom mentions that it’s non-canon because of A Zeo beginning, it can still fit, I mean what’s Power Rangers without a few retcons?
