Now, while Zordon looks more like the alien he was later revealed to be in Power Rangers in Space than the Wizard the lore painted him to be, it is definitely something the original lore has done before. Rita, on the other hand, being a sorceress that has killed Rangers before leads to a darker tone than the original series ever was until the introduction of Lord Zed. And that leads to other questions about Tommy Oliver and Lord Zed.
LionsGate’s CEO has said in the past, they want to do as much as seven movies to this franchise. This might be a fun idea for fans in many respects, and while everything being shown is visually beautiful, the runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes does not do a lot to inspire a ton of confidence in long time fans. Linkara, who is famously known for his History of Power Rangers, has stated he doesn’t care about it one way or the other.
Power Rangers is a tricky battleground as it has inspired some of the best storytelling for television with the Rise of the Mighty Morphin era, to the climatic battle in the show in Space to the story of love destiny and free will in Power Rangers Time Force. On the other hand, it has hit lows with Power Rangers Turbo and Mystic Force just to name a few.
Here is to hoping for the best for the Power Rangers and their movie coming march 24th of this year.
