As we gear up for the thrills and spills of the long-awaited Power Rangers reboot, a familiar face has shared his thoughts: the one, the only, the original Red Ranger, Austin St. John.
The #PowerRangers star sat down with Comic Book to reveal some strong words about his expectations for the reboot:
"What are my expectations... you know, I don't think my expectations are quite like the world's expectations. I know what Jason is, and was to me. I know how I meant him to be, but he was perceived differently by so many. Special for some and not so special for others depending on where you fall. I think what's going to be hard is the fact that regardless of whether you're a Jason fan or not, everyone in the world has got an opinion about it.
So, mister Dacre, he's got some shoes to fill, and I'm excited for him. I am worried for him, and I just, I want to see the film come off without a hitch. I want to see it go well, I want to see the fans elated. I want to see everybody talking about how great it was, how their memories were ya know, just infused into this new version of the new Jason. It hasn't been done in 23 years, I'm the only Jason."

Clearly St. John feels deeply protective of his beloved character, but is understanding enough to extend some sympathy to the young stars in the spotlight for the 2017 Power Rangers:
"I'm excited. I'm worried. I'm happy and anxious, for him and for his castmates. Because they all, I mean the original five. That's what started the FOX tidal wave. I'm told there's never been a show with better ratings. 40 countries, 90 languages. I'd be nervous if I was him."
Power Rangers hits theaters March 24, 2017.
