Legendary Power Rangers Actor Makes Historic Debut Voicing Lord Drakkon in
BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands Comic Book Trailer
BOOM! Studios and Saban Brands unveiled today the official trailer for the upcoming comic book event POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID, voiced by legendary Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank (“Tommy Oliver” in the original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”). For the first time ever, Jason David Frank officially brings Lord Drakkon – a twisted, alternate-reality version of Tommy Oliver, the Green Mighty Morphin Power Ranger – to life in a video trailer supporting the historic first Saban’s Power Rangers comic book event that unfolds in issues from both Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers which also includes three special one-shots and a Free Comic Book Day edition.
“The Power Rangers have always been a beacon of light and good; there to save the world day in and day out. This time around, they face a nemesis far worse than they have seen, Lord Drakkon, the alternate and evil version of Tommy Oliver. Bringing the voice of Lord Drakkon, who’s vicious and ruthless, to life ran a volt of energy throughout me,” said Jason David Frank. “It felt so good to be bad hahaha. The fans are in for a historic comic book event that will change the Power Rangers future like no other event in their past. They cannot miss it!”
Kicking off with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #25 (on-sale in comic shops on March 28th), Lord Drakkon and his newly reformed deadly army will cross dimensions in order to execute on a plan that threatens the very existence of every Power Ranger ever. For the first time in comic book history, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will join forces with some of the most popular Power Rangers teams in the franchise to face this unprecedented threat.
“POWER RANGERS: SHATTERED GRID is truly the biggest Power Rangers story that we could’ve imagined – and now it feels even bigger with Jason David Frank delivering such a chilling performance as Drakkon,” said Dafna Pleban, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “From Mighty Morphin to Time Force to Super Ninja Steel, we’ve made sure that many of your favorite Rangers get moments to shine – along with introducing some brand new characters you won’t see coming!”
“When Jason David Frank stepped into our studio at Saban Brands, he captured Lord Drakkon’s voice in a way only Jason can”, said Brian Casentini, Executive Producer, Power Rangers Content. “In partnership with BOOM! Studios, we are very excited for fans to view the trailer for this incredible comic book crossover event which tells a Ranger story of incredible scope and scale which we think will thrill the fandom.”
