Things always come full circle when trying to reboot a franchise. With all the iterations of the Power Ranger Series it was hard to keep track of them all and the plot lines. But this movies promises from the look of the trailer to be a more edgier version of the original that started it all. I guess its target audience is the ones that grew up with the series and to do so they had to make it more appealing to an older audience in the meantime not losing the corny campy charm of that made the series popular with children. It will be interesting to see how they balance that out.
