A couple of fans banded together to give us this darker take on where some of the Rangers ended up years after their service to Zordon. Hit the jump to check out the flick.
It’s been 5 years since the last alien invasion, the Rangers have since split up and now live normal lives… Up until today. They each received a familiar call about unidentified beings set to strike earth in less then 48 hours.
While Jason, The Red Ranger, is on his way to the HQ, he discovers a few street thugs up to no good. He decides to get warmed up after his 5 year hiatus… however, nothing could prepare him for what’s heading his way.
No Spandex, no tights. We wanted to create a fresh take on the Rangers universe, with a modernized look and feel. The audience that grew up watching MMPR are now watching films like The Avengers, Iron Man, Batman Begins, Dark Knight… While those films come from very different extremes (some comic films light, and others dark), we tried to find a middle ground between them. For an example, we weren’t going to kill any kids in this.
How could we ground MMPR with all their larger then life characters without making it dull? All the above in mind, we put together something that could with the very LIMITED resources we have.
