Zordon of Eltar: A Power Rangers Fan Film

Of course, we at The Monkie Grid love to help bring fan projects to light, and thus, after seeing it on RangerCrew, we just HAD to share this teaser trailer with you all!

Rita Repulsa official

Rita Repulsa

Zordon of Eltar is a fan film that takes place long before the Power Rangers of Angel Grove were a glint in their daddy’s daddy’s daddy’s eye, focusing on the origins of Zordon and his fight against Rita Repulsa. Currently in development, this trailer signifies the great deal of progress that has been made since the project’s beginnings.

Cisco Davis, Jr., the fan film’s creator, has made it clear that he wants to create a film that not only expands on a time not covered, but also stay true to what already exists.

-=UPDATE=-

This project also now has a Kickstarter! Check it out here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ciscodavisjr/zordon-of-eltar-a-power-rangers-fan-film

SUPER POWER BEAT DOWN – White Ranger vs. Scorpion

So, Bat in the Sun has been posting about this match-up for weeks, even months and it has been the talk of the town for quite some time.

Featuring interviews with voice actor Matthew Mercer and none other than Jason David Frank himself, SUPER POWER BEAT DOWN continues a long line of “what-if” style one-on-one fights between major fictional characters from some of the world’s most popular franchises.

This one in particular happens to feature the White Ranger from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers versus the hellspawn ninja Scorpion of Mortal Kombat fame. Who wins? Well, I think you just may have to see it for yourself.
