"I'm really good friends with a lot of the original cast," Johnson said. "Me and David Yost are like best friends. And then I talk to [Jason David Frank] a lot. But I haven't seen Walter [Jones] or Austin [St. John] in forever, so this is super fun."
In the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which debuted in America in 1993, Yost played Billy Cranston, the Blue Ranger, alongside St. John -- who played Jason Lee Scott, the Red Ranger -- and Jones, who played Zack Taylor, the Black Ranger.
Frank joined the cast later in the first season as the enigmatic Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver. Frank's character ended up becoming a fan favorite, and he ended up acting in many of the later Power Ranger spin-off series.
Yost, who also appeared in numerous installments in the Power Rangers franchise over the years, said he was "really excited" for the big premiere.
"Obviously it's a big honor. I'm very humbled. We started this franchise 25 years ago, here we are 25 years later with a whole new cast of kids and they're taking on the original characters so it's really exciting to see what they're going to do with those characters," Yost said. "They're going to be loving it because they're official Power Rangers."
While Yost says he has managed to keep in regular contact with all his former Mighty Morphin Power Rangers cohorts, he said, "It's great that we're all here together getting to experience this together."
