Fans are still waiting for an official Power Rangers sequel, but they can look forward to a project involving some of their favorites from the franchise's past.
That project is called The Order, and former Yellow Ranger Karan Ashley is working on making the film a reality. The film includes plenty of former Power Rangers, but in an interview with AiPT! she revealed why they chose a to go the original route and not just make an unofficial Power Rangers film.
The Order came from a desire to work with my cast and some of the other cast members who had been on later seasons. We have all gotten to know each other and we do comic cons together all the time. I always thought, man I wish we could work together. We did not want to do any Power Ranger reboot or fan film because it was already being done and there are so many fan films floating around out there. Plus as actors and artists, you just want to creatively do something different. You just want to stretch yourself and be a character you have never been before. We are super excited to start shooting and are finalizing a distribution deal. Once that is done, we will start filming.
While The Order is something a bit different, Ashley said she loves being a part of the Power Rangers universe, and she has nothing but good things to say about her fans.
I love two things about being apart of this franchise. First, it's the FANS. They are the most loyal group. When we were on the show, we were living out our dreams of becoming actors but we had no clue how the show was resonating with the fans. We had no clue that almost 25 years later we would be traveling the world and meeting all of our fans as adults. We had no idea the show and the characters we created had touched so many lives. It's remarkable the impact it has made and now our fans are parents and their kids are watching too.
The Order is expected to drop sometime in 2018.
Power Rangers is available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital now.
