Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie Finds All New Cast

Power-Rangers

If you’re a ’90s kid you may have heard that last May Lionsgate announced it would be producing a reboot movie of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. So rejoice children of the 90s, your favorite superheroes are finally returning!

The movie is scheduled for a January 2017 release. Follow the powerrangersmovie on Instagram for updates.

What are your thoughts on the new cast? Let me know in the comments!

In the meantime, to gratify you until the movie’s release, watch the explicitly dark “Power/Rangers” fan film that had the Internet buzzing earlier this year.

Warning: the following film is rated R
