Recent talk of the new Power Rangers movie in the works brings back memories of all the old characters we knew and loved as kids, the villains (That Rita Respuls used to scare me), and the iconic, original ranger outfits. Does that mean we could possibly see the wise sage Zordon again along with beloved robot companion, Alpha 5? If this is an origin story, what will the plot be? I have more questions to ask than emotions to feel.
We have already seen one reboot of a classic series recently: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. How many people actually liked the movie is debatable with Master Shredder looking like a transformer with a billion knives and the turtles looking super mutant-y, Fallout 3 style, and not so ninja-y. We’re sure of one thing: critics did not like the movie. Is Power Rangers going to suffer the same fate?
With Project Almanac director, Dean Israelite, taking on Power Rangers, I’m still not sure whether to say expectation for the reboot is high and that we trust him bringing back an awesome part of our past.
There is something that we can all get on board with: The Powerpuff Girls movie. Sometime this year, the original girl power show will hit our T.V screens and melt our hearts. Are you ready for more Buttercup sass and more quotes from the villain Mojo Jojo like, “Hey you kids, get out of my moat, it was not meant to be played in. I must remember to destroy those kids after my breakfast has been eaten.” I might rather have a Mojo Jojo spinoff.
Now don’t get me wrong the main characters are amazing and those girls are made with sugar, spice and everything but nice because they kick major butt.
What are your thoughts on these reboots? Are you excited to see the new Power Ranger Movie? Do you think it will look like a transformer rip-off? How about getting your girl power on with the new Powerpuff Girls series?
