Who Pink Power Ranger Amy Jo Johnson Wanted To Play In The Reboot

Even though the Power Rangers have gone through multiple iterations on television for over two decades, nothing beats the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers gang. Those teenagers with attitude were pop culture mainstays in the early 1990s, and now they're being reimagined for the Power Rangers reboot movie next year. One of the original actors on the TV series was Amy Jo Johnson, a.k.a. Kimberly the Pink Ranger, and at one point, Johnson was keen on appearing in the upcoming movie as Rita Repulsa. As she put it: I really wanted to be Rita, but Elizabeth Banks got that part. I think I…

Amy Jo Johnson ('Power Rangers'): "Hubiera sido una fantástica Rita Repulsa"

'Power Rangers' comenzó su andadura en la televisión con los 'Mighty Morphin', cinco adolescentes de Angel Grove que un buen día descubrían que habían sido elegidos para hacer frente a una amenaza alienígena que quería acabar con nuestro planeta. Durante varias temporadas, vimos cómo iban desarrollando sus poderes, luchando contra las horribles criaturas que Rita Repulsa y su séquito les lanzaban e, incluso, cómo cambiaban sus trajes para adquirir mayores habilidades. Entre estos jóvenes actores se encontraba Amy Jo Johnson, quien dio vida durante 138 capítulos a Kimberly, la primera…

'Power Rangers' Alum Amy Jo Johnson Talks Movie Reboot, Relocating to Canada in Trump Era

Courtesy of Amy Jo Johnson"I have friends here who say, 'We're not the backyard that you can just escape to,'" the Hollywood actress-turned-director jokes about coming north to Toronto. The prospect of Donald Trump becoming president prompted a host of Hollywood celebrities to pledge to move to Canada, even though many already have broken their election promises. But Amy Jo Johnson, who played the Pink Ranger in the original Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers TV series, did move north — only before the U.S. election — to launch herself as a Canadian film director. "I'm happy, I'm really happy…

Amy Jo Johnson Says Being The Pink Power Ranger Gave Her ‘Horrible Nightmares’

Power Rangers: Good for the future of mankind, bad for sleep cycles. Amy Jo Johnson, who played the original Pink Ranger from 1993 to 1995, garnered an immediate fandom for performing many of her own stunts as the show’s gymnast, Kimberly. And though Johnson kicked ass on set, she was withdrawn behind the scenes, and told Oprah in a new edition of Where Are They Now? that playing the hero did a number on her psyche. Johnson, whose role as Kimberly came after her first big audition in Hollywood, recalls in the clip above one huge fan engagement in the early ’90s that boasted thousands of…

‘Power Rangers’: Amy Jo Johnson volvió a vestir su traje rosa en Canadá

Amy Jo Johnson, quien interpretó a la ‘Pink Ranger’ original en la recordada serie Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, volvió a vestir su traje rosa y salió a las calles de Toronto (Canadá) con una guitarra tras haber alcanzado los US$75,000 para financiar su película a través de una campaña en el portal Indiegogo. La actriz de 44 años señaló que esta curiosa celebración que realizó el pasado viernes se debió a que su ex compañero de elenco en la serie, David Yost (quien interpretó al ‘Blue Ranger’), la había desafiado a ponerse nuevamente las mallas del personaje que encarnó si lograba alcanzar…

Teenagers With Attitude (and Spandex): Behind the Scenes of the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers"

Waking up for Saturday morning television is a pastime passed on from one generation of children to the next, with each generation defined by its particular lineup of shows. Children of the '90s had a lot to choose from but one show stood out from its peers: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Based on Japan's Kyöryü Sentai Zyuranger series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers became a success with kids across America after debuting on August 28, 1993, on Fox Kids. The series, created by Haim Saban, starred Austin St. John as Jason Lee Scott, the Red Ranger; Walter Jones as Zack Taylor, the Black Ranger…

Where are the first Power Rangers?

For those who do not remember, Power Rangers is an American series that was created from the Japanese tokusatsus (series with a group of superheroes who fight monsters, or simply live action). The first American exhibition was in 1993, coming to Brazil following and gaining thousands of fans. Currently the series is still produced, but the cast is reformulated each season. Perhaps connected to the public this post does not bring news, but thinking of unsuspecting or forgotten, then check where is the cast of the first season of Power Rangers (or even Power Rangers Classic): Red Ranger -…

'Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers': Teenagers with attitude, a childhood with joy

It was an awkward conversation with my college roommate the day we moved in together. "Are you really hanging that up?" he asked, glaring at my Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers poster. "Of course!" I replied unapologetically. I mean, if I was going to have to stare at his giant Moroccan tapestry all year, he could handle my little Power Rangers poster. (And my WALL-E poster. And my Lost poster. Oh, and maybe my Spider-Man and Pokémon posters, too.) My roommate sort of grimaced, trying his hardest to seem pleasant, and I gave him a similar look of pity - clearly, he was deprived as a child.…

'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' does a flying jump-kick to Nickelodeon

No one will ever be able to argue that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was a good show. But the combination of repurposed video from Japan and candy-colored inane high school drama somehow proved weirdly appealing, at least to nine-year-old me. (For some reason, I still remember what a Dragonzord is.) So I'm vaguely intrigued by the news from the Hollywood Reporter that the Power Rangers franchise is making a leap from Disney to Nickelodeon after being bought back by the original owner Haim Saban. The plot of Power Rangers is helpfully explained by the introductory text to Mighty Morphin Power…

Well, well, the original Power Rangers. What can you say about them? The most annoying children's show of it's time, but also the most popular; Power Rangers launched a very promising actress into the public.

We just watched this on Netflix streaming: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

The Film: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie Months ago I reviewed the first Teenage Mutant Ninja turles movie, which is kind of of masterpiece in its own way. But TMNT was always my older brother's thing, maybe even a few years old than him. TMNT hit at the end of the eighties and beginning of the 90s when I was still a toddler. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was definitely more my thing - I remember recording episodes before I went to my baby sitters in the morning (I was around 7 or 8). Regardless, I was really, really into the Power Rangers. Like, insanely into them. I had all the…
