Watch The Ultimate Power Rangers Fan Film (Video)
There are hundreds, if not thousands of fan films posted to Youtube every year. But it’s rare to come across a fan made project that can outshine the source material.
Today (via Playboy), the fan film Power/Rangers delivers an unexpectedly dark and grim reboot of the classic Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. It’s easily the best fan film of the year to date, with stylish direction by Joseph Khan from a script by Kahn, James Van Der Beek and Dutch Southern.
Battlestar Galactica star Katee Sackhoff as Kimberly, the original Pink Ranger, while Dawson’s Creek star, James Van Der Beek (Dawson wta) appears as former Red Ranger, Rocky and Russ Bain steps into the role of the most popular Power Ranger, Tommy.
Power/Rangers focuses primarily on the original characters from the series and uses the war with the Machine Empire from Power Rangers Zeo to imagine a bleak future in which several of the Rangers turned on each other after Earth capitulated to the machines.
The film also stars Gichi Gamba as Zach, Yves Bright as Billy, Steven Knight as Jason,Camilla Lim as Trina, Will Yun Lee as General Klank, Tony “Madness” Gomez as Bulk, Matt Delia as Skull, Bree Olson as Diavtox, and Carla Perez as… a very familiar face.
Power/Rangers was produced by Adi Shankar and Jil Hardin, alongside executive producers Justin Smith, David Kang, Raymond Watt and Michael S. Kim.
