There has been a lot of controversy and confusion so far about what the plot will include and how similar it will be to original series.  Some reports have claimed that it will give a more modern version of the original storyline, but it’s also been said that the movie might possibly continue on with where the series left off. Either way, it’s definitely a film Power Ranger fans have been waiting for!
