The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the first iteration of the Power Rangers franchise, is getting a Hollywood reboot and it now has a release date: July 22, 2016. The film is being written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, frequent writing partners from such films as Thor and X-Men: First Class.
The team has so far said that they will be rebooting the original Power Rangers story, rather than one of the literally more than 15 spinoffs since the 1993 series. Lots of room for sequel movies, right? We don’t know how faithful they’ll be to the original characters, whether they’ll bring in later additions to the series like the Green or White Rangers, or what the villain will look like, but this will be a Power Ranger origin story.
