Is Tommy In Power Rangers: Once & Always?

According to Netflix, the special "pays tribute to both Trang and Jason David Frank, the late actor behind renowned Ranger Tommy Oliver." As seen in the full trailer, the (helmeted) Yellow and Green Rangers appear in a flashback sequence revealing Trini's death.

Is Amy Jo Johnson the Pink Ranger in Power Rangers: Once & Always?

Kimberly Hart actor Amy Jo Johnson tweeted that she "never said no" to returning as the original Pink Ranger, adding: "I just didn't say yes to what was offered." In a subsequent tweet, Johnson explained, "Please stop saying I didn't do reunion because of money. Simply not true. Maybe I just didn't want to wear spandex in my 50s ... JDF and I both chose not to for our own reasons." Johnson clarified the New Zealand-shot special was filmed before Frank's death in November 2022 at the age of 49.
