The POWER RANGERS (Sort Of) Return In Funny Or Die Short - 'THE RANGER'

Ever wonder what a more seriously toned Mighty Morphin Power Rangers might look like? Well, we might have our answer. Actor Matt Jayson has released a fairly fantastic short on Funny or Die.


The revival of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers franchise is in full swing, with a reboot, comics, anniversary merchandise, and more coming our way. An excellent new short has also been released on Funny or Die featuring a nice twist on the classic characters. The short has been uploaded by actor Matt Jayson (Chuck), who also stars in the 3-minute piece. 

The original series starred Austin St. John (Jason/Red), Walter Jones (Zack/Black), David Yost (Billy/Blue), Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly/Pink), Thuy Trang (Trini/Yellow), and Jason David Frank (Tommy/Green).

What'd you guys think? Would you want the reboot to follow a similar tone? Sound off with your thoughts below!

Long ago, the ancient wizard Zordon did battle with the evil witch Rita Repulsa. He eventually managed to defeat her in a game using five magic coins. As punishment for her loss, she was sealed in a canister on Planet Nemesis, a planet that travels close to Earth every 10,000 years. However, before being sealed away, Rita trapped Zordon in a time warp.

Millennia later, Rita and her minions escaped their prison and set out to conquer Earth. Zordon, desperate to stop her, had his assistant Alpha 5 recruit five "teenagers with attitude" (Jason Lee Scott, Zack Taylor, Billy Cranston, Trini Kwan, & Kimberly Ann Hart)  to counter her threat. They were granted the powers of the dinosaurs, and became the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
