The original TV series, which was centered around a bunch of power-infused teenagers turning into masked heroes and fighting villains, got children and teenagers hooked in the ’90s and remains a cult classic till today. Who can ever forget the jaw-dropping scenes of Megazord finishing off a giant monster in almost every episode, or kids like us who pestered parents to buy Power Rangers action figures?

Though the first Power Rangers movie that came out in 1995 was a commercial success, it lacked a good storyline and used special effects that are dismal by today’s standards. With modern-day CGI that has advanced by leaps and bounds since ’95, we’re keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that this reboot will deliver on all fronts. Go go Power Rangers!
