Jason David Frank Releases Trailer for New Power Rangers-Inspired Film, 'Legend of the White Dragon'

Power Rangers alum Jason David Frank has unveiled the debut trailer for Legend of the White Dragon, a new film inspired by Power Rangers that the actor is aiming to secure funding for through Kickstarter.

Frank is seeking to raise $500,000 for the planned movie, which will unite several other fan-favorite franchise stars in a mega mass-up across the Morphin Grid from the Bat in the Sun (Super Power Beat Down) production house. The Kickstarter has raised over $85,000 at the time of writing and will center around a Ranger rebellion recruiting Frank's Tommy Oliver, aka the Green Ranger.

The official synopsis of Legend of the White Dragon is:

"In the Aftermath, the city was left decimated. A past reminder of the great battle and fall of heroes. As a result of the death and destruction the city became known as Angel Graves. The heroes were blamed, stripped of their titles and hunted. But as evil once again threatens to return they must rise from the ashes with the power of the White Dragon."

The four-minute trailer sees the rebels asking Tommy to fight a mysterious overlord in the Citadel of Angel Graves, which fans speculate could be Lord Zedd or an evil Green Ranger. Calling Tommy "the key," they confirm he's their only hope, not to mention the only chance of his daughter's rescue. This leads to him accepting a Morphin crystal from the team and turning into the White Dragon before flying away to begin the mission.

This unofficial Power Rangers project also includes Jason Faunt (Power Rangers Time Force), Johnny Yong Bosch (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce), Chrysti Ane (Power Rangers Ninja Steel) and Yoshi Sudarso (Power Rangers Dino Charge). Frank's daughter Jenna also stars, presumably as Tommy's daughter.

Super Power Beat Down directors Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke will be helming the film, with fight choreography done by Alvin Hsing, who has previously done choreography for Marvel's Netflix shows.

More information about the project:

"It is important that we deliver what the fans want and deserve and Kickstater allows us to do just that! This way we remain 100% in control of the project, giving us the freedom to create a compelling story, intense action sequences, and spectacular visual effects without any studio telling us no. We can't wait to deliver an awesome film experience!

Meet our amazing team we have assembled!

The cast: Jason David Frank, Johnny Yong Bosch, Jason Faunt, Ciara Hannah, Yoshi Sudarso, Chrysti Ane, and Jenna Frank!
The crew: The amazing team behind Super Power Beat Down, directors Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke! Along with fight choreographer, Alvin Hsing, who has choreographed for Marvel's Netflix shows!

Our main goal is $500,000. This will allow us to produce an amazing film but if we are able to raise more it would gives us the ability to expand our story, build out set locations, deliver even greater action sequences and have bigger effects! A lot goes into making a great film, so the more money we raise the more exhilarating we can make the project. Thank you so much for your support!

We just want to say thank you again and we look forward to creating something amazing together!"
