Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reboot to (go) go in 2016
If this summer’s TMNT reboot wasn’t enough to whet your 90’s nostalgia appetite, a second course is just 710 days away: Lionsgate has announced that it will release the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie on July 22, 2016.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor) wrote the script based on a story by Robert Orci (Star Trek) that reinvents the tale of ordinary high school kids who possess the power to save the world. The color-coordinated crime fighters first jump-kicked into the national consciousness with a 1993 Fox Kids TV series, and just two years later Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie hit screens.
Though speculation abounds, no director or casting has been announced. The film’s release date will put the Rangers up against royalty, in a sense—Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur is slated to hit theaters the same day.
