If you are a fan of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers then you know this year marks the 30th anniversary. Of course, when it comes to an anniversary this big you have to celebrate. One way MMPR fans will be celebrating is with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers reunion special. Now there has not been a lot released about this upcoming reunion, but our friends over at The Illuminerdi are now reporting some new details for the 44-minute reunion special.
“Thanks to leaked casting details we know that Hasbro is looking to cast someone who can play a Vietnamese-America between the ages of 18-23 to Yen who, according to our sources, is the daughter of the original Yellow Ranger, Trini Kwan.
rini’s actress, Thuy Trang, tragically passed away in a car accident in 2001 and was unable to reprise her role after her departure in the show’s second season. The reunion will honor the legacy of Trang as well as the character of Trini. The Yellow Ranger will be heavily featured on the packaging for the 30th-anniversary toys.
As of now specific plot details are still under wraps and subject to change depending on who signs on. However, we do know that the returning Mighty Morphin Rangers are set to pass down their powers Yen to become the embodiment of MMPR. Yen will eventually gain a modified version of the MMPR Yellow suit that can switch between the different colors.”
Now this story is still developing and we will keep MMPR fans updated as new breaks. Also as of now we still don’t know how many of the original cast be involved.
