Ive long awaited the reboot of the Power Rangers. I always thought how cool it would be to see the Power Rangers in a more intense and mature action film. Finally, this short film makes my childhood dreams come true!
Directed by Joseph Kahn, the Power Rangers return to us in a dark future where machines are taking over after a massive war, and someone is going around killing off all of the remaining Rangers.
The short has some big stars playing Rangers. Heres the cast list.
Katee Sackhoff - Kimberly/Pink
James Van Der Beek - Rocky
Russ Bain - Tommy/Green
Will Yun Lee - General Klank
Gichi Gamba - Zack/Black
About the film, Director Joseph Kahn had this to say...
Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the FAN FILM. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don't send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version is on youtube.
That being said, its unlikely we'll get any more Power Rangers from this universe. However, sometimes when a film like this is made, its basically a job resumé for the filmmakers. This could open up talks of the reboot for Power Rangers, and if it does eventually happen, it may look something like this. Heres hoping!
