This year’s San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) was electrifying to say the least.
For Power Rangers alumni, Jason David Frank, known for his role as ‘Tommy,’ the Green/White Ranger in the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers series, passing the torch to his daughter, Jenna Frank, 15, is quite emotional.
Last weekend, both Jason and Jenna released the trailer for their newest Kickstarter project, Legend of the White Dragon (LOTWD). The film is a Power Rangers-styled project that seems to hint at Frank’s daughter, Jenna, joining the Ranger realm as the newest Ranger.
For many years, fans have wondered what role, if any, Jenna would play in any upcoming work with her father, particularly in the realm of Power Rangers. For years, rumors circulated that she would potentially be the franchise’s new red ranger. Well, as of this past weekend, fans have a much better idea of Jenna’s role in the Ranger universe.
Together, Jason and Jenna are seeking to raise $500,000 for the anticipated film, which will bring together Rangers from multiple series, including, but not limited to Jason Faunt (Power Rangers Time Force), Johnny Yong Bosch (MMPR), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce), Chrysti Ane (Power Rangers Ninja Steel), and Yoshi Sudarso (Power Rangers Dino Charge.)
As of the date of this announcement, Kickstarter has raised over $120,000 towards the project.
In the trailer, we see rebels asking Tommy to defend and fight against a mysterious figure in the Citadel of Angel Graves—believed to be possible Lord Zedd, or an evil Green Ranger. Tommy and his daughter (presumably Jenna’s character), seem to be the city’s only hope.
The action-packed trailer brings in Jason’s familiar character, Tommy, to defend and fight against a mysterious figure in the Citadel of Angel Graves. It’s possible we could see the return of franchise favorite villains, Lord Zedd or the evil Green Ranger. Tommy and his daughter (presumably Jenna’s character), seem to be the city’s only hope.
