The Power Rangers Movie is here and fans everywhere have lined up to see it once, twice, three times and more (personally I am at 4 times with a 5th time planned). And for those of us who have seen the movie multiple times you cannot help but to begin to notice all the little easter eggs sprinkled throughout. Some of them are obvious, some of them not so much. And that’s what we’re here to help with – listing all the easter eggs we can come up with!
This article obviously contains spoilers – do not click “Read More” unless you’ve seen the movie or unless you don’t care about spoilers. This list may not be complete – please feel free to contact us if you’ve found an easter egg not listed here.
- There are many bullies in detention. One such bully (a female) is dressed just like Skull from the early episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers – with a cut off leather vest, spiked wristbands, and black spiky hair. Whether or not that was intentional is unknown but we’re willing to bet it was
- When Billy is helping Jason bypass the ankle bracelet, on the shelf behind Jason are the original action figures for Squatt, Finster, and Baboo (a fourth figure is seen but it is hard to tell what it is, but it looks to be Goldar)
- When Trini is explaining to her parents what she did the previous day, there’s a Putty action figure on the table behind her
- In the scene where Jason is looking at his old wrecked pickup truck with his dad, his shirt says “From Bulk” in the bottom right corner
- In Kimberly’s room, there’s an action figure sitting on her desk. We have yet to make it which figure it is though
- In the iconic morph scene, Trini is wearing a shirt that says “1973”. That is the birth year for Thuy Trang, the actress who portrayed the original Yellow Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Tragically, she did in a car accident in 2001
- Before the teens become Power Rangers, they still sport their traditional colors in some way, shape, or form. For example, Jason’s bike that he rides to Billy’s house is red. Kim’s undergarments are a pinkish-purple. Trini has a yellow flannel shirt wrapped around her waist. Etc.
- Jason’s dad is looking for him towards the end of the movie at the intersection of Reefside (the city of our heroes in Power Rangers Dino Thunder) and Mariner Bay (the city of our heroes in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue)
- Trini’s bedroom has a circle with a tiger in it in the window. It highly resembles the original Sabertooth Tiger Power Coin
- Another street sign says “Ocean Bluff Drive”, which is in reference to Power Rangers Jungle Fury
- Towards the end of the movie, Trini’s brothers are arguing over which Power Ranger to be. She asks them what about the Yellow Ranger. They respond that it’s a girl, and Trini asks if they know that for sure. This is a slight reference to the Super Sentai version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, where the Yellow Ranger is actually Boi, a male
- In that same scene, there’s a drawing of an owl on the wall. Directly above it is a picture of the Silver Guardians out of Power Rangers Time Force, with another picture that looks to be of the morphing scene from Power Rangers Time Force. Is the owl then an easter egg to Circuit, the mechanical owl from Power Rangers Time Force?
- Two civilians taking pictures of the Megazord at the end of the movie are actually Jason David Frank and Amy Jo Johnson, the original Green Ranger and Pink Ranger from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
- When the teenagers first discover the “command center” spaceship, they touch a strange liquid barrier that they then are sucked through. This is very similar to when the Power Rangers first enter the “Power Chamber”, the upgraded “Command Center” from Power Rangers Zeo. Whether or not this is any type of “nod” or “easter egg” is left up to you to decide (credit @dan_pearson)
- UNCONFIRMED – the bull noise that Beefcake the Bull makes at the beginning of the movie is the same sound that the Tyrannosaurus Zord makes in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (credit @wildwing64)
There are a few more little tidbits out there that we cannot confirm 100% as of yet (ie: the Angel Grove school symbol being the same as the original series). If you have any easter eggs please feel free to let us know and we’ll add it to our list!
