For Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers alumni, Jason David Frank, this year’s San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) was electrifying, to say the least.
Just days before SDCC 2019, Frank announced a brand new project, self-funded through Kickstarter—the brand new trailer for Legend of the White Dragon (LOTWD). The four-minute trailer is a Power Rangers-styled project that seems to hint at Frank returning as either a modernized “White” Ranger or a new force to be reckoned with.
Even more exciting is the torch Frank is passing to his daughter, Jenna Frank, 15, who is co-starring in the new film.
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.
Now, fans finally have a much better idea as to the role Jenna will be playing in the upcoming and/or extended Ranger’s universe.
You can check out the trailer here:
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).
Jenna has been extremely active with fans over the past year, recently letting them know that she is there for each and every one of them as they journey into a new world of Power Rangers. She recently took an active stand against online bullying, with her father, participating in the #CYBERBYTE movement, an anti-cyberbullying movement started by internet attorney and Hollywood brand manager, Andrew Rossow.
“Guys, remember, those who control you, control your emotions. Remember, if you’re getting bullied online, just remember to stay strong,” Jason and Jenna shared.
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.
