Mark the calendars for August 28 because that is now officially National Power Rangers Day. This is a new campaign from Hasbro to help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular show adapted from the Japanese original. It is quite straightforward to participate, too. Apparently, just color coordinate with your friends and post on social media with #NationalPowerRangersDay about memories and new things you’re doing. Of course, this year will also feature the special anniversary episode of Power Rangers Ninja Steel that will bring back some legendary Power Rangers. Here’s the blurb from National Day Calendar:
“On August 28, It’s Morphin’ Time! National Power Rangers Day officially recognizes the original “teenagers with attitude” and celebrates all things Power Rangers!
In 1993, five ordinary teenagers exploded on the pop-culture scene with the launch of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Together they broke down barriers and defeated evil by demonstrating teamwork, inclusivity, and diversity to people of all ages. Today, this grand tradition continues as new Ranger teams and new generations of fans discover these essential values over and over again.
On National Power Rangers Day everyone gets to be a Power Ranger! What are your Ranger skills and abilities? Do you have super strength or enhanced memory? Maybe your talent hasn’t been discovered yet. That’s ok! No matter where you live or who you are, with discipline, mindfulness, and heart, anyone can become a Power Ranger. Ultimately, the goal is to call your friends, color coordinate and get ready to celebrate National Power Rangers Day!”
