Netflix recently dropped the highly-anticipated first trailer for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always, the 30th anniversary special celebrating the beloved franchise. Fans have been eagerly awaiting this moment, and the trailer did not disappoint, offering a tantalizing glimpse into what’s in store.

One of the most shocking reveals in the trailer was that Rita Repulsa kills Trini. Yes, you read that right – the word “kill” is used. This is a bold move for the show and sets up the stakes for the special. Rita’s plan is to go back in time to kill the Rangers before they become Rangers, leading to the need for additional support from other Rangers.

As Alpha works on the computer in their current base, we see some interesting names on the screen. Bandora Protocol is a reference to Rita’s palace, which was called Bandora’s Palace in the original Japanese version. We also see Coral Harbor, the home of Grid Battleforce and the Beast Morphers team, Reefside, the home of the Dino Thunder Rangers, Turtle Cove, home of the Wild Force Rangers, and the Astro Megaship from Power Rangers In Space. It would be amazing if we got to see some Ranger representation from each of these seasons, but it seems unlikely.

The Rangers come] face to face with a familiar threat from the past. In the midst of a global crisis, they are called on once again to be the heroes the world needs. Inspired by the legendary mantra from the franchise ‘Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger,’ Once & Always reminds everyone when you become a Ranger, you are always a part of the Ranger family and always welcome.

The special stars David Yost as Billy Cranston, Catherine Sutherland as Kat Hillard, Johnny Yong Bosch as Adam Park, Karan Ashley as Aisha Campbell, Walter Emanuel Jones as Zack Taylor, Steve Cardenas as Rocky DeSantos, and Charlie Kersh as Minh. Barbara Goodson and Richard Horvitz are reprising their roles to voice Rita Repulsa and Alpha 5 respectively. Once & Always will be available to stream on Netflix starting April 19.
