Whenever a beloved TV show or movie is rebooted, it’s common to see some of the original stars make a cameo appearance of some sort. Unfortunately for fans of the original Power Rangers, that won’t be the case for the upcoming film.

The Power Rangers are set to make their return to the big screen next year courtesy of Lionsgate and Saban, but any fans of the TV series hoping to see the original cast of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers popping up in cameos will be disappointed to hear that they weren’t approached about appearing in the reboot.

When a classic or cult favorite TV series is given the big-screen treatment, the filmmakers will usually try to find room for a cameo appearance from an original cast member or two, but that won't be the case with the upcoming Power Rangers reboot. Walter Jones, who played Black Ranger Zack in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, was a guest on the Audibly Exquisite Podcast, and revealed that neither he nor any of his castmates from that show were asked to appear in the film. "It’s not likely," said the actor when asked about the possibility of a cameo. "Unfortunately, we were not invited to be part of the film, which is confusing to me, but I’m excited about the film nevertheless." How do you guys feel about this? Are you disappointed, or do you think it's best if the movie distances itself from the '90s TV series? »
