Emma Lahana from Power Rangers Dino Thunder is joining the cast for the new Freeform series, Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. Yesterday at the Freeform Summit, there was a panel called, “From Comics to Screen”: Creating Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger. During this panel, the official release date was announced. The show is set to premiere on Thursday, June 7th at 8PM on Freeform. Along with that, the Marvel Entertainment YouTube channel released a special 3-minute look at the series.
After the panel happened, Emma Lahana took to social media to make a special announcement. Her tweet said,”Couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of the @Marvel universe! I can’t give you guys the details of my character just yet 😉 but I hope you love her as much as I do.”

She can’t say who her character is just yet, but I’m pretty sure her character will either be an all-new original character or a character from the comics.
For a little bit of background on Emma. She was on Power Rangers Dino Thunder back in 2004 and her character was Kira Ford, the Yellow Ranger. She starred alongside James Napier (Red), Kevin Duhaney (Blue), Jeffrey Parazzo (White), and of course Jason David Frank (Black).
Her character returned to Power Rangers S.P.D, Operation Overdrive, and Super Megaforce. And with the Power Rangers 25th anniversary coming, her character could appear again.
So, below is the description of Cloak and Dagger:
“Cloak & Dagger is a coming-of-age series based on the beloved Marvel characters. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) come from starkly different backgrounds, each growing up with a secret they never dared share with another soul.”
“Once a privileged little girl, Tandy Bowen watched as her family was destroyed by a disastrous storm that uprooted her life. Now in her late teens, an unexpected encounter with a boy named Tyrone sparks a life-changing event. Young Tyrone Johnson wanted nothing more than to prove he was fearless. But when everything he held close was taken away, life taught Tyrone to be afraid. Now older and more sheltered, Tyrone closes himself off. But when he meets a girl named Tandy his life changes forever.”
