Rita Repulsa has been trying to deliver the Zeo Crystal to her master, Lord Zedd, for a long time. And true to the TV series, Lord Zedd once burned half his face off trying to steal the Crystal for himself, which has only made him even more desperate to have it once and for all.
If all this new information turns out to be true, then fans should be pretty excited for the movie. It seems like the writers have decided to take a lot of material from the original TV series but add their own spin on things. Adding in the darker tone, too, Power Rangers should be able to appeal not only younger fans looking for a new kind of superhero but alsoto older fans who grew up on the franchise. There’s a reason that Power Rangers has lasted as long as it has, and Saban may have just found a way to make their hit property relevant again.
