Nostalgia Mining In Full Effect.
The news comes via the official [Lionsgate twitter](https://twitter.com/lionsgatemovies/status/464016146719453187) that they have partnered with Saban to make a new movie series based on the iconic franchise. This isn’t surprising, there are movie versions of Barbie, Jem, and the motherfucking _Peeps_ in development. My favorite bit of the press release is this:
> The new film franchise will re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of
high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and
use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
Note to Lionsgate: That’s not re-envisioning Power Rangers, that’s just making a a Power Rangers movie. Unless they want to make it grim and gritty and realistic. Actually I’d totally watch a grim, gritty, power rangers remake because I think it would be hilarious.
No talent is attached yet and no planned release date or anything but I thought you guys would appreciate the heads up that another part of your childhood is about to be mined for your hard-earned dolla dolla bills.
