Watch the POWER RANGERS Movie Trailer Recut to Match the TV Intro

With only a few weeks until the new Power Rangers movie hits theaters, there still seems to be a rift between old school purist fans of the show and people welcoming the new, somewhat gritty, big screen take on the super-powered team of teens. In what we look at as something to bridge that divide, a new trailer has been cut with the original theme.

YouTuber Sebastian Hughes edited some of the new movie’s trailer footage to look just like (or as close to) the original opening credits as possible and placed the original’s audio track over it to bring us back to simpler power-ranging times. The result is equal parts nostalgic and eye-opening as it makes us come to grips with just how–let’s face it–incredibly silly the original show was. Whether intentional or not, this re-cut trailer brings together old and new making us feel a bit better about being able to still love the original while also being open to the next installment. For comparison, take another look at the original opening credits for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers while reminding yourself there were already a few attempts at recreating this on the big screen.

It’s evident that the new film will deviate from the original and we’re likely to lose a good deal of the campiness the show was known for, but is that really a bad thing if you consider some of the nightmares we had about that giant pig head in a centurion helmet?pigpowerrangers012217
