Power Rangers fans, rejoice – the cinematic reboot of the campy, cheesy show about those colour-coordinated cadets is finally here. While it’s receiving mixed reviews from critics, longterm followers of the franchise will find much to love in this slightly more grown-up take from Project Almanac director Dean Israelite.
With over twenty years of continuity to draw from, Power Rangers is unsurprisingly stuffed full of easter eggs and references. Mostly to the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, from which the movie’s characters originate, but also from a few other sources, too. Even the casting of Bryan Cranston as the Rangers’ mentor Zordon is one big easter egg – a young Cranston voiced several monsters in Mighty Morphin. In fact, the Blue Ranger Billy Cranston is actually named after him.
So, on that note, from the post-credits scene to the writing on a character’s T-shirt, here are 10 easter eggs you might have missed in Power Rangers. As always, if you spotted any that we didn’t list here, feel free to let us know in the comments section down below.
