“iam8bit is so pumped to have assembled with SABAN to release this lovingly remastered vinyl, featuring tracks from the first two seasons of the classic series,” iam8bit state on their website. “We’re calling it “The OG Soundtrack,” because this is as nostalgic as an album gets, made event more magical by the expert stylings of cover artist, JC Richard.”

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers began in 1993 as one of the cartoons to launch the Fox Kids network, taking much of its footage from the Japanese original Super Sentai.

A movie reboot was announced in 2014, marking the first film since a pair of movies were released in the mid 1990s, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.

The Power Rangers themselves will be played by Life Bites’ Naomi Scott, US teen rapper Becky G plus newcomers Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lyn and RJ Cyler. Its director is Dean Israelite, who directed Project Almanac. Israelite had been due to direct Doctor Strange, but was replaced by Scott Derrickson.

Bryan Cranston has signed up to appear as the superheroes’ leader Zordon, whilst Elizabeth Banks is set to star as Rita Repulsa, the franchise’s iconic villain.
