'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' Reboot Gets a Release Date -- Watch This Awesome #TBT!

Guess what 90's kids? It’s Morphin Time! At least it will be in roughly two years as Lionsgate has officially slated the new Power Rangers movie to hit theaters July 22, 2016.

Lionsgate is the latest in the studio race to snatch up key release dates, and now we have one to really look forward to: a re-envisioning of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Saban Brands, who launched the original television series in 1993, is partnering with Lionsgate for the reboot of the top-rated children's series.
