For those who missed this TV insanity from the 1990s, Power Rangers was one of the most popular live action kids TV series that began airing in 1993. It followed a group of 6 high school kids who harnessed special powers to "morph" into a team of different-colored, masked, ninja monster fighters. Although this highly popular franchise has appeared on the big screen before – Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie (1997), Power Rangers returns this year in their biggest cinematic venture yet. Helmed by Dean Israelite under the Saban Entertainment and Lionsgate production, Power Rangers movie will take us to a major nostalgic trip.
