Power Rangers Superfan Writes The Sequel We All Want
Power Rangers opens up in China this weekend, but some have already started thinking about the potential for a sequel. That includes superfan Trey Stevens, who already wrote a script for it.
The 96-page script is titled Power Rangers 2: The Return Of The Emperor and takes place roughly a year after the events of the first movie. Tommy is already ingratiated with the other Rangers, and a big part of the film deals with how he becomes the Green Ranger. Much to fans delight, Lord Zedd is the primary villain this time around, though Rita Repulsa still plays a big part in the film. In fact, there's plenty to love here, as the script features even more of the history between Zordon and Rita, as well as how the original Rangers were formed and what drove Zordon apart from his friend Lord Paragon. It also includes an even bigger fight sequence, which of course features the Dragonzord. It also features Serpentera, which means Serpent Dragonzord vs Megazord action, and Rito Revolto even makes his way into the plot.
Aside from some typos and polish, this is a great foundation for a sequel. If the next movie is anything like this, fans would indeed be quite delighted. You can read the full script here.
The action-packed, coming of age feature film Saban's Power Rangers will morph onto Digital HD June 13 and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital HD), Blu-ray Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital HD), DVD and On Demand June 27 from Lionsgate. As part of the 24-year-old global phenomenon and based on the five Rangers from the original TV series, "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,", the reimagined movie features a modern generation of Rangers including Dacre Montgomery (TV's "Stranger Things") as Jason the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, and Becky G. (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, as they attempt to stop the evil and unpredictable Rita Repulsa (played by Elizabeth Banks, The Hunger Games Franchise) from destroying their city…and ultimately the world. Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad") as Zordon, and Bill Hader (Finding Dory) as Alpha 5 train the Rangers to morph and master their powers as a united team.
The Saban's Power Rangers DVD will include exclusive audio commentary with director Dean Israelite and writer John Gatins, and deleted/alternate/extended scenes and outtakes. Saban's Power Rangers will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD for the suggested retail price of $42.99, $39.99, and $29.95, respectively.
