Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always: Release Date, Trailer & Where To Watch

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always

The Power Rangers are back in this one-off special that is part of the original show’s 30th birthday celebrations.

If you were a fan of the series back in the 90s, you will want to tune into the Rangers’ reunion adventure, which sees them join forces to face a familiar threat from their past.

These beloved heroes will be landing on Netflix very soon so if you’re looking forward to this latest outing for the supergroup, keep reading to learn more about the upcoming release.

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always plot details

The original show centred around a group of teenagers who defended the Earth from evil forces after being granted extraordinary powers. The franchise continued in a similar way but the team-up changed with new actors taking on the role of the colourful heroes over the 21 different themed series.

The upcoming special features a pair of original Rangers who join forces with some of their successors.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

“Thirty years after the wise and powerful Zordon formed the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the team comes face to face with a familiar threat from the past. In the midst of a global crisis, they are called on once again to be the heroes the world needs. This 30th Anniversary Special is inspired by the legendary mantra from the franchise “Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger,” meaning once you become part of the Ranger family, you are always welcome back.”

Who is this “familiar threat” that the Rangers will be facing? It’s the evil sorceress Rita Repulsa, who intends to travel back in time to wipe the Rangers from existence. Will the team foil her diabolical plan? We imagine so but as the trailer has shown, there will be at least one casualty among the group of heroes.

Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always release date

The Power Rangers will be morphin’ onto our screens on April 19th 2023. It’s expected to land on Netflix at 8am (GMT) in the UK and 12am (PT) and 3am (ET) in the US.

Who stars in Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always?

Walter Emanuel Jones and David Yost, two of the original lineup of actors, reunite as Black Ranger Zack Taylor and Blue Ranger Billy Cranston, respectively. Alongside this pairing are members of the second group of Rangers, including:

  • Catherine Sutherland as Pink Ranger Katherine “Kat” Hillard
  • Karan Ashley as Yellow Ranger Aisha Campbell
  • Steve Cardenas as Red Ranger Rocky DeSantos
  • Johnny Yong Bosch as Black Ranger Adam Park

Also in the cast is Barbara Goodson, who returns to voice evil villain Rita Repulsa.

Notable by their absence are Thuy Trang (the original Yellow Ranger) and Jason David Frank (the original Green Ranger) who, sadly, have both passed away.

Is this the last we will see of the Power Rangers?

Thankfully, no. Later in the year, a new series featuring the titular group of heroes will be coming to Netflix.

Titled Power Rangers: Cosmic Fury, the show is a sequel to Power Rangers: Dino Fury and it will feature the same cast members. We don’t have an official release date yet but we do know that it will be released sometime this Fall.
