POWER RANGERS: Two Original Cast Members Confirmed To Cameo; Mid-Credits Scene Also Confirmed

Well, it appears that two members of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers cast will indeed cameo in the new movie. Plus, we have details on the mid-credits scene and an awesome new TV spot!

With the press tour currently underway, Lionsgate Entertainment has released the production notes for its eagerly awaited Power Rangers reboot and while not particularly spoiler-y, they do inadvertently spoil the cameos of two original Mighty Morphin cast members.

Those cast members being, of course, Jason David Frank and Amy Jo Johnson, who played the original Green and Pink Rangers, respectively. No further details on their roles were given as they are only listed as Cameo Role #1 and Cameo Role #2, which seemingly suggests that they'll be making blink-and-you'll-miss-it type appearances and unsurprisingly, not reprising their classic roles. 

It's uncertain why the studio opted not to invite back the full original cast, which also includes Austin St. John, Walter Jones, and David Yost, but Frank's apparent reluctance to share the spotlight with some of his former male castmates over the past few years may have played a factor. Regardless, this is still a cool gesture from Lionsgate and a nod fans of the original series will certainly enjoy come March 24. 

On another note, in a recent interview with Collider, director Dean Israelite confirmed that there is indeed a post-credits sequence: "There was always going to be a post-credit thing. The only question was whether it comes 2.5 minutes into the credits, or right at the end. We decided to break (the credits) up and go 2.5 minutes in. It felt correct.” Now, as for whether this mid-credits scene will, as expected, tease Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, CinemaBlend reports that: *SPOILERS* (highlight to reveal) Yes, it will. Their report states that while the scene won't actually feature an actor playing the character, it'll instead see a teacher call out Tommy Oliver's name while taking attendance in detention, setting up his presence in this new Rangers cinematic universe as well as his inevitable introduction in a potential sequel. *END SPOILERS*

Collider's interview also touches on a number of other topics, including the original director's cut, deleted scenes, Easter eggs, and more. Check it out in full HERE.

Plus, here's a new TV spot:
