In better late than never news, today I found out that a fan series is taking shape that is attempting to give a serious take on the Power Rangers. The fan series entitled, MMPR will have an older Tommy (obviously not played by Jason Frank) recruit five others in order take on Lord Zedd (reprising his voice role from the series is Robert Axelrod), who has returned to reek unholy vengeance upon them and the world.
Not only have they nabbed Zedd's original voice actor, but the fan series has also nabbed the voice of Zordon himself, David Feliding, and the series composer Ron Wasserman. All in all, not bad at all for a fan series.
There was a Kickstarter for the fan series just a last month and the series raised way over it's intended budget (they originally just wanted $18,000 for a single episode) at over $41,000. No word yet when the first episode will hit other than them saying Fall 2013. Here's the teaser trailer:
And if that didn't wet your morphing appetite here's three posters for the series:
