Was anyone a fan of the original "Mighty Morphin'" Power Rangers show in the early 90's? Came out in the Summer of '93, so it's almost 30-years old and Netflix have bagged this special as a celebration.
Written by long-running writers of the numerous iterations of the show, it will feature returning cast members of the original series' first three seasons. Original actors for the Blue & Black Rangers, along with the second actors who replaced the Red & Pink Rangers eventually (contract disputes going into season 2 iirc).
For those unaware, the original actors for the Yellow and Green Rangers have since passed away in a traffic accident and unfortunately reported suicide respectfully. It looks as though they are planning to honour the life of the Yellow Ranger in this roughly hour long special.
Was mad on this as a kid and the trailer looks great. Still as corny as ever, but the nostalgia is strong. The original Red & Pink Rangers aren't as big on appearances and reunions as the others are/were it seems, but hopefully they're involved.
Sounds like original voice actors for the masked characters and I'm sure there's more to come!
