Although it'd be a total dream come true, a Power Rangers reunion ain't on the menu!
But a whole lotta dissing is being served up!
After executives tried to get the original cast to reunite for an episode of Power Rangers Megaforce, one of our fave heroes from back in the day put the kibosh on the possibility.
David Yost or as we all really know him, the Blue Power Ranger, apparently flat out refused to take part after enduring horrible timez on set in the past.
As an openly gay actor, he suffered verbal abuse from various people on set as he has claimed in the past that producers called him the f-word. He eventually quit the show in 1996 due to this, and it sounds like he wants to stay done with the show!
Buuuut…that might not quite be the case!
While that has been the report going around, David recently tweeted somewhat of a different explanation:
A long, long time ago, back in a decade called the 90s, the Power Rangers franchise was owned by Haim Saban, a man who became a billionaire overnight.
Disney swooped in and bought the rights to it some time ago, seeing the potential it could have in continuing it's live-action Saturday morning shows.
Then something happened (we assume Hannah Montanna) and the Rangers got shoved to the back of the line. Now, after six months of negotiations, Saban has been able to buy the property back and is already in talks with Nickelodeon to have a full on Rangers explosion on the network.
Not only are they looking to to producer 20 new episodes of the current series, but also open the Power Rangers library to play older episodes on Nicktoons.
Ugh! It would probably be painful to watch those earlier episodes! We imagine the production value wasn't as good as we remember it as kids!
We're sure there are some of you that disagree though.
