Fans Celebrate 25th Anniversary Of 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'
The super sentai fever swept everyone during the 90s following the global success of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The MMPR phenomenon spawned a live-action film in 1995 which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year!
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie revolves around an entirely new story that wasn't based on its Japanese counterpart Zyuranger where most of the American TV series' storylines and footage were taken. The film features our favorite Rangers Rocky, Billy, Kimberly, Adam, Aisha and Tommy as they try to stop Ivan Ooze's evil plans of taking over the world.

You ooze, you lose. Happy 25th anniversary to one of my favorite childhood movies of all time, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie. I gotta say, the Japanese dub of this movie sounds way cooler than I thought. pic.twitter.com/jbWoy2QZmF— Joshua Chiu (@JoshuaChiu1993) June 30, 2020
Reminder that the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers defeated Ivan Ooze by having their Megazord kick him in the crotch so he’d fall into the path of a meteor. This movie GOAT https://t.co/AUnrFIVki9— Jumby’s Power Rangers Struggle Tweets (@Jumbalia23) July 1, 2020
The Westernized version hit sentai series would get a film reboot in 2017 which didn't do as well at the box office. However, a sequel is reportedly still in the works over at Lionsgate.
