Power Rangers Plot Revealed?

It seems after the first announcement of who is playing the Pink Power Ranger, we may have uncovered some more information regarding the upcoming film. Unlike most theories, it seems it might not be a reboot at all, as it will actually continue a story that is currently being evolved in the new season of Power Rangers, titled Power Rangers: Dino Charge. It seems the villain will actually be one that has survived the original series’ Z Wave, which supposedly destroyed all evil in the universe, or at least the one that existed at the time.[1]

The information sounds as follows:

"Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd will not be the main antagonists. As loyal fans of the series know (and this could be considered a spoiler here), both of those villains were among the evil forces purified by Zordon’s energy wave (or Z-wave) that spread peace throughout the universe. However, not all adversaries were neutralized. There’s even one major villain from the early days of the series who promised she would return, but never did, prompting people to assume that she was destroyed or turned good by the Z-wave. Yes, I’m talking about Scorpina, of course! Sources tell us the ruthless and dangerous minion of Rita has returned to plague the Rangers once more. And it seems she’s brought an army, which she uses to battle the Power Rangers and their robot Megazords in the epic opening battle scene. From what we’re hearing, the Rangers (presumably the Dino Charge team at this point) are protecting the Morphin Grid, an energy field that provides power to every generation of Rangers."

I’ll be honest, I do not really think this is true. It makes little sense to cast the Power Rangers with the names of the original series and not actually reboot the franchise. Also, if they are trying to sell this film to the audience that grew up with Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, it makes little sense to tie it into the TV show, especially if it seems to be taking a darker turn. We will see, but as of now, take all this information with a grain of salt.

What do you think? Will it be a reboot or not? Leave a comment below!
