Step aside, pinheads. BULK and SKULL push their way through the Rangers, decked in bizarre skydiving regalia, topped off by World War II leather caps and aviator goggles. BULK The Stealth Eagle is about to fly. SKULL Ditto for the Swooping Swallow. The Rangers exchange amused looks. Aisha gestures to them AISHA Lead on, flyboys. Bulk and Skull swagger to the door and open it - the ground is a dizzying distance below. They swallow hard. SKULL Bulk... where'd the earth go? BILLY Five seconds to the target zone!

The city's spectacular large skyline rises out of the b.g. A SPUNKY MR. KELMAN stands at a podium, speaking into a mic. MR.

ANGEL GROVE PARK - DAY 8 We hear a VOCIFEROUS SISSING SOUND, but we can't see where it's coming from. - Suddenly the six Rangers come SCREAMING AROUND A CORNER ON STATE-OF-THE-ART ROLLERBLADES. These kids are FLYING!! We hear FULL-THROTTLED MUSIC as the kids WEAVE, DUCK and SWERVE like blading virtuosos. Tommy LEAPS in the air, does a 180 and SKATES BACKWARD.

CITY STREET - DAY 9 The Rangers GLIDE around another corner -- there's buildings on one side of them and a construction site on the other. TOMMY Let's take the shortcut! Tommy leads them up a plywood ramp -- they LAUNCH TEN FEET THROUGH THE AIR, PULLING OFF HAIR-RAISING FREE STYLE MOVES THEN MAKE SPECTACULAR LANDINGS on the construction site parking structure. As they shoot across the concrete, the CAMERA PUSHES IN on: 10 EXT. INNER CITY CONSTtZUCTION SITE - DAY 10 ... WORKERS operating heavy machinery -- cranes, bulldozer , etc., Construction Worker jackhammers solid rock. Drill makes a CLANGING SOUND as it HITS METAL! A baffled look comes over him as he stops the jackhammer, brushes away debris.. uncovering an ANCIENT IRON PLATE. He gapes at it, too stunned to speak. 11 EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - SHORT TIME LATER 11 A large hook has been fastened to the iron plate -- a crane ENGINE ROARS as it HOISTS THE PLATE UP, revealing a CAVERNOUS OPENING. TWO MORE CONSTRUCTION WORKERS have joined the first, all of them look on in amazement. CONSTRUCTION WORKER #2 Whadda you figure it is?! CONSTRUCTION WORKER #1 Hey, ya got me. Suddenly a PURPLE STEAM POURS from the opening. And now something really amazing happens. .. A menacing STONE CLAW RISES UP, CRADLING A HUGE STONE CONSTRUCTION WORKER # 1 ... I'll be damned. As though drawn by it's power, he moves to touch it. KZAAAAAAP?!! APURPLE BEAM OF LIGHT BLASTS HIM -- SENDS HIM FLYING TEN FEET THROUGH THE AIR! CONSTRUCTION WORKER #1 AHHHHHHHHH! 11A EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY 11A A T.V. REPORTER is talking into camera. REPORTER We're here at the World Center Construction Site, where a mysterious object was just uncovered in a freak accident in which one workman suffered minor injuries... 12 12 thru OMITTED 13 13 13A INT. ERNIE'S WATERFRONT CAFE - DAY 13A CLOSE ON - T.V. SCREEN We see the reporter then a few cuts of GEOLOGISTS combing the site with scanning equipment and COPS sealing off the area with yellow tape. REPORTER ... Angel Grove Police have cordoned off the area until it can be determined whether or not the unidentified object poses any threat. The injured workman was quoted as saying... PULL BACK TO REVEAL A CAFE. The Rangers are at a table -- Tommy is teaching Fred martial arts moves. TOMMY It's one smooth move and then you've gotta explode off the top. Tommy executes a wicked JUMPING ROUNDHOUSE KICK. Fred is wowed. He drops into position. TOMMY Nice and easy. The jovial proprietor, ERNIE, approaches the Rangers' table with a loaded tray. Fred pulls off a dazzling JUMPING ROUNDHOUSE KICK and almost knocks Ernie's tray over. ERNIE Hey, no Karate on the patio! FRED Actually, Ernie, it's Tae-Kwan Doe. ERNIE Well Tae-Kwan-Do-it some place else. Fred moves off as Ernie serves the desserts. ERNIE So, what're the plans for the weekend? KIMBERLY Aisha and.I are checking out a new dance spot. AISHA I heard that! BILLY I'll be at the Observatory Sunday. ERNIE That's right - Ryan's Comet. ROCKY We should throw a little comet shindig. ADAM Any excuse for a party. Aisha reacts to something off screen. AISHA The Eagle has landed. Bulk and Skull swagger past followed by a GROUP OF KIDS. BULK The earth was hurtling toward us at seven hundred miles per hour, and we knew at that moment that we were facing death straight in the eye. SKULL We could smell it's breath. Ernie moves off after Bulk and Skull. Tommy's wrist communicator BEEPS. The kids exchange glances than look for a private area. ROCKY There's a spot over there. They move out of everybody's sight. TOMMY (into communicator) What's up, Alpha? ALPHA 5 (V.O.) Rangers, we need you at the Command Center, L.R.N. ! Aisha gives Kimberly a puzzled look. KIMBERLY 'Like Right Now.' TOMMY We're on our way. They hit their wrist-communicators and instantly TRANSFORM INTO SIX IRIDESCENT COLUMNS OF COLOR. The columns SHOOT UP THROUGH a giant oak tree, KNOCKING LEAVES LOOSE. 14 EXT. COMMAND CENTER - SUNSET 14 Zordon's remote headquarters protrudes from a craggy mountain top -- silhouetted by a glorious sunset. The SIX STREAK OF COLOR slice downward into the roof. 15 INT. CONIMAND CENTER - NIGHT 15 Everything's gone haywire buttons BLINK, emergency lights FLASH, there's a CACOPHONY OF ELECTRONIC SOUNDS. ALPHA 5 works frantically amidst the array of computer banks while ZORDON looks on from his COLUMN OF LIGHT. The six Rangers MATERIALIZE, Tommy turns to Zordon. TOMMY What's happening? ALPHA 5 Ay, yi, yi, yi, yi ! Our thermionic-sensors have been hit by a CATACLYSMIC surge of evil! ZORDON Rangers, you must act swiftly. The planet is in GRAVE danger! KIMBERLY Danger from what? ZORDON Six thousand years ago a morphological being known as Ivan Ooze, ruled the world with a reign of unparalleled terror. Finally, a rebel factor known as the "Order of the Meledon" lured him into a hyperlock chamber and buried him deep underground. ALPHA 5 In a place that came to be known as Angel Grove. ZORDON The chamber has been accidently UNCOVERED! You must return it to the depths. or anyone should open it and Ivan is released! ALPHA 5 To assist you I have retro-fitted your helmets with new Opti-Scan devices. ZORDON Use extreme caution, Rangers. You are dealing with an evil here that is beyond ALL comprehension. 16 EXT. INNER CITY CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT Barricades and police tape surround the egg. A SECURITY GUARD passes his sleeping CO-WORKER, drops into a chair, sips his coffee. BZZWAPP -- ZEDD, RITA, GOLDAR and a short, fat, furry creature named MORDANT appear. RITA Another Saturday night and I'm traipsing around the galaxy with the THREE LITTLE PIGS! My mother warned me this would happen! Rita, she said, after 89 marriages you might wanna think about throwing in the towel. Why didn't I listen to her?! Zedd grumbles to himself. ZEDD That's a good question. The stunned guard stirs his sleeping buddy. FIRST SECURITY GUARD Uh... Kurt... you might wanna take a look at this. Kurt looks up groggily. ZEDD No need to wake him. In fact, why don't you take a little nap yourself. Zedd ZAPS THE GUYS with a bolt from his staff -- they are knocked out. Goldar steps back from the blast and accidentally steps or Mordant's foot. Mordant KNOCKS on Goldar's metallic leg. MORDANT Hey bonehead, get off my hoof! Goldar is oblivious. Zedd, stands reverently before the glowing egg shape. ZEDD After two thousand years of searching... I have finally found you. Mordant BANGS on Goldar's leg again. MORDANT Yo, earth to Bigfoot! Goldar SWATS Mordant. GOLDAR Watch your mouth, fuzz-ball! ZEDD SILENCE! RITA (to Goldar) Where did you FIND this rabid little rodent, anyway?! GOLDAR Mordant's my second cousin three times removed on my mother's side. He`s just visiting for the summer. RITA Well put a muzzle on him! Mordant GRUMBLES under his breath. Meanwhile, Zedd aims is staff at the chamber and BURSTS a blast of energy. The egg opens up with a wHOOSH of decompressing air. webs of ELECTRICITY BRANCH OUT, followed by a SWIRL OF BLACK SMOKE. When the smoke clears we see a BUBBLING, PURPLE, PHOSPHOSCENT OOZE. The group gathers around -- Rita sticks a finger in o the sticky substance. RITA What... you spent two thousand years looking for this tub of SNOT! As if in response, the ooze BOILS AND FROTHS. Zedd and Rita are too busy arguing to notice this. ZEDD Don't you ever have anything nice to say?! RITA Well, if I did I certainly wouldn't say it to you! We hear a SLITHERING SLURPING SOUND as the substance RISES UP AND TAKES ON THE GHASTLY SHAPE OF IVAN OOZE. Mordant tugs at Zedd. MORDANT Boss. ZEDD For your information this is not just your average, run-of-the- mill tub of snot ! RITA You're trying to tell me there`re different levels of snot?! MORDANT Boss. ZEDD WHAT! Zedd and Rita finally notice Ivan, standing with his lips apart, revealing jagged teeth, one of which is made of GLISTENING SILVER. He stretches his sinewy arms, releases an enormous YAWN, puts his hands on his head, CRACKS it. IVAN Ahhhhhhhh. Now he SMACKS his lips together, opens his arms theatrically and gives his trademark stance. IVAN Ladies and Gentlemen... the OOZE is back!! Rita blushes. RITA He's so cute. Zedd flashes her an angry look, turns back to Ivan. ZEDD I am Lord Zedd, sworn enemy of all that is good and decent. It is a supreme honor to finally meet you. Ivan gives a slight bow. IVAN How can I ever repay you? ZEDD Do you recall the name... Zordon of Eltare? Ivan's face goes dark, THUNDER RUMBLES and the site LIGHTS UP WITH A FLASH OF LIGHTNING. Mordant turns to Goldar. MORDANT Seems to ring a bell. ZEDD I want you to destroy Zordon, so that my evil may once again reign SUPREME. IVAN (hissing) I will not only destroy him, I will OBLITERATE his entire being. It will be like Zordon of Eltare never EXISTED! RITA Finally, a real man. Goldar hands Ivan a scrap of paper. GOLDAR Here's his address. IVAN (reading) "... left off Interstate 12?!" (puzzled) What's an "interstate"? MORDANT It's like a freeway. How long have you been locked up? ! ZEDD We shall leave you to weave your wicked ways. RITA Now we go out on the town. First dinner, then dancing, then -- BZZWAPP!! The foursome DE-MATERIALIZE. IVAN What is that odious stench? His eyes come alive. IVAN Smell's like... TEENAGERS! 17 OMITTED 18 EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT On cue, the Power Rangers TELEPORT into the construction site. They're surrounded by rock piles, pools of water and a plethora of building supplies. Billy looks down at the mud puddle he's standing in. BILLY Remind me to have a word with Alpha about his teleporting calculations. They survey the construction site for a moment. AISHA Anybody see anything? TOMMY ... Let's take a look over there. They advance up a slope -- the egg comes into view. ROCKY (alarmed) It looks like it's been opened! The kids get close to the egg, looking it over with fascination. Suddenly a hand falls on Aisha. SECURITY GUARD (O.S.} Hey! They all whirl around and see the first Security Guard. He half smiles, shaking his head. SECURITY GUARD You had me scared there. AISHA Makes two of us. KIMBERLY You haven't by any chance seen a ... morphological being lurking around? SECURITY GUARD The only thing I've seen is you teenagers. (beat) And you know... if there's one thing in the world I reeeeally hate.... CLOSE ON HIS FACE as it SHAPE-SHIFTS INTO THE+ HIDEOUS VISAGE OF IVAN OOZE. IVAN It's TEENAGERS KIMBERLY GroSS! IVAN You're too kind. Allow me to introduce myself. I am the infamous, world-reviled, universally despised, IVAN OOZE! ROCKY Well, pack your bags cause we're sending you back where you came from! IVAN Gee, a teenager with a big mouth. Not much has changed in six thousand years. KIMBERLY we're not just teenagers, raisin- head. TOMMY We're the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! Ivan puts his hands to his face in mock fear. IVAN Ooooh, where's my autoqraph book?. He looks them over reproachfully. IVAN Power Rangers, huh? So Zordon is still using a bunch of rug-rats to do his dirty work. And speaking of rats... Ivan raises both hands -- ELECTRICITY SHOOTS OUT HIS FINGERS and the kids DIVE CLEAR as the bolt ZAPS A THRONG OF RATS. Now, incredibly, the RATS GROWN INTO GRUNTING, SNARLING MAN SIZED RAT-BEASTS. IVAN From this moment forth, the world as you know it SHALL CEASE TO EXIST! Ivan raises his arms -- thunder CRACKLES and LIGHTNING RIPS ACROSS THE SKY. IVAN WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE! An EXPLOSION OF PURPLE SMOKE CONSUMES IVAN. ROCKY He's gone. The RATS ATTACK! ADAM Let's take these beasts!! Tommy gets off a stellar CROSS-HOCK TAKEDOWN, Kimberly delivers a world class HEEL STOMP, Billy executes a lethal REVERSE HANDSWORD. Despite their valiant efforts, the Rangers ar being overwhelmed by the fierce combatants. 19 INT. COMMAND CENTER - NIGHT SMOKE POURS from various circuit boards, numerous control panels VIBRATE. ZORDON Alpha, my sensors tell me the Rangers were too late! Ivan is on his way here! ALPHA 5 Hey, NOBODY enters the Command Center without a power coin! There's a BLEET, BLEET -- emergency lights start FLASHING near the entrance. Alpha watches, forlorn, as OOZE SEEPS through the hairline cracks in the door. ALPHA 5 Well... ALMOST nobody. The ooze SLITHERS AND GURGLES ACROSS THE FLOOR, once again IVAN RISES UP. He takes in the state-of-the-art surroundings. IVAN Gee... pretty fancy-shmancy. I guess if you invest your money well over SIXTY centuries you can buy something pretty nice. Alpha drops into a Karate stance, makes some BRUCE LEE NOISES then LUNGES. ALPHA 5 HI , YAH ! Ivan holds his arm out, ZAPS Alpha with an electrical charge Alpha starts spinning. ALPHA 5 Welcome to Wiener World. May I take your order, please? ZORDON You haven't changed, Ooze. You're still picking on creatures smaller than yourself. Ivan slowly circles Zordan's column of light, Zordon turns with him. IVAN Put a cork in it "Z" . Ten minutes out of the egg and I'm already listening to one of your lectures. (he explodes furiously) You robbed me of my PRIME! I was the Supreme Ruler of the most foul Empire in the Universe. I was the King of Calamity. The Duke of Destruction. The big man on campus! (beat) And then you came along. You locked me into your stuffy little hyperlock-chamber and tossed me into the depths like yesterdays TRASH! ZORDON It worked for six thousand years. IVAN Don't remind me! IVAN Do you have any idea what it's like to be cooped up in a rotten egg for six thousand years? It's BORING! Not to mention I've had a Charlie horse since the Renaissance! But now the tables are turned. Now... IVAN raises his hands - he is holding a flute and he PLAYS A FEW NOTES IVAN ... it's time to pay the PIPER! He uses the flute like a lightning rod -- A BOLT OF LIGHTNING BLASTS A PANEL TO SMITHEREENS. IVAN Oh, the things that I have missed. The BLACK PLAGUE! He blows up another PANEL. IVAN The SPANISH INQUISITION! (another bolt) The 70's! HE BLOWS UP ANOTHER PANEL. Ivan CASTS ANOTHER LIGHTNING BOLT, DEMOLISHING AN ENERGY PILLAR. IVAN And now, finally, I have the strength to DESTROY your pathetic powers FOREVER!! ZORDON YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH THIS! IVAN I've got a NEWS flash for you LIGHT-BRIGHT -- I ALREADY HAVE! Now Ivan begins to THROW LIGHTNING EVERYWHERE, LAYING THE COMMAND CENTER TO WASTE. Ivan laughs in the b.g. as Alpha continues to spin, moving his arms in and out. ALPHA 5 You put your left probe in, you put your left probe out, you put your left probe in and you shake it all about. You do the hokey- pokey and you turn yourself around... 20 EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT Two rats charge Aisha and she LEAPS UPWARD - the pair SMASH into each other. Rocky picks up a two-by-four and starts SPARRING with another rat. Billy SHOVES A HUGE WOODEN-SPOOL down a slope and it ROLLS INTO A COUPLE OF RATS, BOWLING THEM OVER. One rat CRACKS IT'S TAIL like a whip, KNOCKING Adam to the ground. Another rat gets Kimberly in a bear hug and she makes a face. KIMBERLY RAT breath!! She grabs a handful of his whiskers. KIMBERLY Somebody needs a shave. She YANKS THEM OUT, the rat SQUEALS and releases her. The fight well, but the rats start to get the upperhand. TOMMY IT'S MORPHIN TIME! The Rangers click their power coins into their power morphers. KIMBERLY PTERODACTYL! BILLY TRICERATOPS! ROCKY TYRANNOSAURUS! ADAM MASTODON! AISHA SABER TOOTH TIGER! TOMMY WHITE TIGER! RANGERS MORPHENOMENAL! They JUMP INTO THE AIR and they're ENGULFED IN A DAZZLING GOLDEN LIGHT as we do a 3D MOVIE VERSION OF THEIR TRANSFORMATION INTO COSTUME. They all LAND and there's a WHIRRING SOUND as all six of the face pieces POLARIZE so we can see their faces. The rats immediately scurry off. TOMMY Let's teach these vermin a few manners. AISHA Activating Power Beam! A YELLOW BEAM SLICES THROUGH THE DARKNESS. Aisha leads the group through the site. KIMBERLY Everybody stay alert. (CONTINUED) - NEXT FILE PAGES 21 ONWARDS 20 CONTINUED: (2) 20 They pass a bulldozer, some scaffolding ADAM Hold it... They come to a stop. ADAM (pointing) I heard something over there. BILLY Activating Audio Enhancer! AN AUTO-PHONIC RECEIVER POPS OUT of the side of Billy's helmet. As he turns his head, the receivers ROTATE. SOUND EFFECT: We hear silence and then... a RASPY BREATHING, followed by a GUTTURAL SNARL. BILLY They're on the other side of that wall. The Rangers advance along a cement wall, slowly round a corner. Aisha's light PANS THROUGH THE GLOOM. TOMMY Anybody see them? ROCKY Activating Power Scope! A SCOPE SNAPS into place over Rocky's left eye. P.O.V. - THROUGH POWER TRACKER We see HEAT SENSOR OUTLINES, PULSATING WITH COLOR. COMMAND GRAPHIC: SEARCH MODE. Lines VECTOR and SCAN as Rocky searches the area. Eventually he looks up and the lines LOCK ON TO THE PULSATING FORMS OF THE RATS. ROCKY THEY'RE ABOVE US!! The creatures LEAP DOWN and we see the Rangers pull off KICKS, SUCKER PUNCHES, SPINBACK-ROUNDHOUSES, you name it. One of the beasts TACKLES Tommy and the pair go TUMBLING OWN A TWENTY FOOT ROCK PILE. Aisha picks up a handful of dirt AISHA Hey, handsome! A beast turns -- Aisha FLINGS dirt in his eyes. AISHA My mistake. She follows through with an OVER SHOULDER THROW -- the beast CRASHES INTO A JOHNNY-ON-THE-SPOT. Rocky fights another beast and the creature SWINGS UP THROUGH SCAFFOLDING with phenomenal dexterity. Rocky goes after him. TOMMY SABA SABER? The talking Saber appears in Tommy's hand. SABA (yawning) What a DREAM I was having! TOMMY We've got company. Saba sees the rats. SABA Rats! I hate rats! We hear a PRIMITIVE CRY as a beast SLAMS INTO ADAM, SENDS HIM CATAPULTING. Adam rises, speaks in a low growl. ADAM Bad move, Willard! He holds his hand in the air. ADAM STEGA-STINGER! The STEGA-STINGER appears in Adam`s hand. He aims it toward an overhang, FIRES. A thin wire SHOOTS OUT -- the Stinger at the end PIERCES the overhang. ADAM Coming through! Adam leaps off a platform, SWINGS THROUGH THE AIR like Tarzan, SLAMS into the rat and sends him CATAPULTING. ADAM Target Neutralized? KIMBERLY Raptor-Ribbon! A contraption APPEARS in Kimberly's hand and she throws her arm out -- a LONG RIBBON SWIRLS out and tangles itself around the rat. KIMBERLY Now you see `em. She yanks the ribbon pulling the rat into an opening -- he DISAPPEARS. KIMBERLY Now you don't. Billy takes a hit, ROLLS across the ground. He stops inches away from a twenty foot drop-off. The beast CHARGES HIM, he ducks and the beast GOES FLYING THROUGH THE AIR AND SPLASHES DOWN IN ONE OF THE MUDDY POOLS OF WATER. BILLY Not the brightest of beasts. Rocky is now up in the scaffolding. He DROPS TEN FEET through the air, LANDS ON ONE END OF A BOARD. There's a beast at the other end and he goes FLIPPING THROUGH THE AIR. Tommy throws Saba Saber and the knife SWOOPS THROUGH THE AIR and zings around the beasts as they try to knock him down. SABA Na na na na na! The rats chase after Saba as he heads into a water-slicked area. There's a large power cable running across it. Once all the rats are in the water, Saba kamikaze dives into the cable, SLICING IT OPEN WITH AN ERUPTION OF SPARKS. The water SIZZLES WITH ELECTRICITY and the rats GO UP IN A PUFF OF SMOKE. SABA Fried mice, anyone? We see the six original small rats scurry away, SQUEAKING. Suddenly, there's an EXPLOSION OF ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY and the Rangers watch, stunned, as their COSTUMES DE-MATERIALIZE and they appear back in civilian clothes. KIMBERLY What's going on?! Billy tries his wrist communicator. BILLY Alpha, come in! There's no response. TOMMY We'd better get back. They all hit their communicators and nothing happens. AISHA (worried) Something's wrong! TOMMY Come on, guys... They hurry off. 21 EXT. COMMAND CENTER - NIGHT 21 The Rangers climb a mountain path, all of them looking alarmed. Up ahead, there's a PILLAR OF BLACK SMOKE rising from the Command Center. 22 INT. COMMAND CENTER - NIGHT 22 The place is trashed -- there's SMOKING debris, ravaged panels, exposed wires and mechanisms. The kids move through the wreckage in numb silence. TOMMY (barely audible) ... what happened here?... Adam spots Alpha's arm protruding from a mound of rubble. ADAM Guys! The kids quickly uncover the battered robot. BILLY Alpha, are you okay?! ALPHA 5 I'll GET you my pretty, and your little DOG toa!! BILLY He must've blown an anitromic demodulator! KIMBERLY (stunned) Oh, no... Everybody follows Kimberly's gaze, thunderstruck expressions coming over them. Laying on a destroyed bed of crystals is Zordon. He is still a SHIMMERING SPECTRAL being, only now he s aged a good fifty years. The kids stand over him, forlorn. AISHA ... What's happening to him?' BILLY Outside of his time warp he's aging at a vastly acellerated rate! KIMBERLY We have to help him! Zordon opens his eyes. ZORDON ... Rangers... thank goodness you're safe. The kids drop down beside him. TOMMY We have to get you back inside your time warp. ZORDON I'm afraid that's impossible... The power has been destroyed. It's gone... The Zords, the weapons... all of it. (beat) The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are no more. The kids are stunned. Kimberly gently takes Zordon's hand. KIMBERLY Zordon... you can't leave us. Ever since you came into our lives... you've been like another father `to us all.- ZORDON ... You must be strong... Ivan almost overthrew the planet once... and now I'm afraid he has the strength to see his scheme through. Zordon closes his eyes. Tommy puts a hand on Kimberly's shoulder. The kids slowly rise, all of them looking utterly despondent. Billy turns to Alpha. BILLY what're we going to do? ALPHA 5 I do not LIKE Green Eggs and Ham! I do not like them, Sam-I-am! Billy opens a panel on Alpha's back, makes an adjustment. Alpha's head rolls back like he's going to sneeze. ALPHA 5 Ah-Ah-Ahhhh-CHOO!! SPARKS BURST from where his nose should be. He SNIFFS. ALPHA 5 Thanks, Billy. Rocky hands Alpha a hanky, Alpha wipes his nose area. ADAM There has to be something we can do. TOMMY Come on, guys, think! Aisha turns to Alpha. AISHA Alpha. Is there any way we can defeat this monster? Any way at all? ALPHA 5 ... Perhaps there is a way... I have heard tales of another power. ADAM What?! ALPHA 5 ... They say that somewhere beyond the Hyperion Constellation there exists a mythological power that is beyond all comprehension. TOMMY How can we get to it? ALPHA 5 As the legend goes, the power is impossible to obtain. ROCKY We have to try, Alpha. It's our only hope. Alpha shakes his head. ALPHA 5 It's far too dangerous. Zordon would never allow it. AISHA If we don't try, Zordon won't survive! ADAM If Ivan Ooze isn't stopped, nobody will survive. Alpha heaves a sigh. ALPHA 5 Ay, yi, yi, yi. (beat) The legend speaks of a Master Warrior who lives on the planet Phaedos... This is the only person who knows the secrets of the power. AISHA How can we reach Phaedos? Alpha heaves a SIGH. ALPHA 5 Zordon's going to have my orbicular spheroids when he hears out about this! The kids exchange curious looks as Alpha opens a compartment and removes a vile filled with RADIOLUMINESCENT ENERGY. ALPHA 5 This is an emergency reserve of morphonic emissions. It should be enough to get -you there. He approaches a damaged panel, loads in the vile. ALPHA 5 There is one problem. I only have enough reserve to send you Phaedos... I can't bring you back. ADAM So how do we get back? Alpha gives them a grim look. ALPHA 5 ... You'll have to pray that the legends are true. Alpha keys in coordinates. ALPHA 5 You're sure you want to do this?! The Rangers share purposeful looks. TOMMY It's our only hope. Alpha shakes his head, punches in the final codes. ALPHA Safe journey, Rangers! He pulls a lever. ALPHA 5 BE CAREFUL!! The kids TRANSFORM INTO SIX STREAKS OF COLOR AND BLAST 0FF THROUGH THE CEILING. Alpha shakes his head in despair. ALPHA 5 Ay, yi, yi, yi. They're DOOMED!! 23 thru 27 OMITTED 28 EXT. EARTH - NIGHT 28 We see the SIX COLORED STREAKS BLAST away from earth and SHOOT PAST the moon. The CAMERA MOVES IN on Zedd's ominous palace which rises up out of the tortured landscape. Zedd, Rita, Mordant and Goldar are standing on the balcony. 29 INT. ZEDD'S PALACE - NIGHT 29 Zedd, Rita and their minions are inside Zedd's dark palace Goldar looks through Rita's telescope as Rita rants. RITA (outraged) How could he let them slip through his hands?! He's no better than the rest of the hired help around here! Goldar looks up from the telescope. GOLDAR According to the TX Tracker, they're headed for Phaedos. ZEDD I'm gonna fire that slimeball so fast his not gonna know what hit him! Ivan sweeps regally into the room. IVAN Hi, honey, I'm home ! RITA You garlic-sucking DINGLEBRAIN! The Rangers are going after the Great Power (to Zedd) I thought you said this guy was the Master of Disaster? (to Ivan) He's nothing but a slime- infested, jelly-bellied blob of -- Ivan SNAPS his hand -- a WAD OF OOZE FLIES OUT, SPLATS RITA across the mouth, muffling her. RITA Rrgh mmffpprr brghuh!! ZEDD How dare you?! Nobody shuts up Rita but me! IVAN Sorry, slick, there's been a slight'change of plans. (arms out in trademark stance) The "booger man" is taking over. Ivan drops regally into Zedd's chair. ZEDD Nobody double-crosses Lord Zedd and lives! Mordant slips behind Goldar, using him as a shield. MORDANT Zedd's gonna kick this snotball into next week! Zedd SHOOTS A BLAST from his staff -- Ivan is COVERED IN SPARKS. IVAN Ooooh, that tickles! Ivan raises his hands and the sparks DISAPPEAR. IVAN My turn. He ZAPS Rita and Zedd, and with a BRILLIANT FLASH, THEY'RE GONE. Mordant moves to a snow-globe on the table, his mouth falling open. Zedd and Rita are INSIDE IT!! Rita wipes the ooze off her mouth, RANTS IN A MUNCHKIN VOICE. RITA This is all your fault! If you'd taken me out tonight like you were suposed to, none of this would've happened. Ivan turns menacingly to Goldar and Mordant. IVAN Now you have a choice, either serve me, or join those insufferable cheesedongs. Mordant and Goldar exchange a look, then turn back to Ivan. GOLDAR We never liked the cheesedongs in the first place. MORDANT Couldn''t stand them -- low-class all the way. And did you catch a whiff of their BREATH?! It's like having a conversation with a couple of ONIONS! Not to mention... Goldar throws a hand over Mordant's mouth, MUFFLING him. GOLDAR (apologetic) He's just visiting for the summer. (beat) Now what about,the Rangers, oh hideous one? IVAN Ah yes, the RANGERS!!! He makes a HOARKING SOUND then SPITS OOZE ONTO THE FLOOR, MORDANT Gasunteidt. Now the OOZE GROWS INTO TEN TENGU WARRIORS -- BIRD-LIKE CREATURES WITH LONG BEAKS AND ENORMOUS WINGS. THEY GOBBLE, SQUAWK AND CHIRP like newborn chickens, the CACOPHONY GROWING LOUDER AND LOUDER until... IVAN SHUT YOUR BEAKS !! The Tengu fall dead silent. IVAN Tengu Warriors, you will fly to Phaedos, find the Power Rangers... and TEAR THEM APART! The creatures make HORRENDOUS SQUAWKING SOUNDS AS THEY SPREAD THEIR REPTILIAN WINGS. IVAN Mordant, go with them and report back to me! MORDANT You know boss, I'd really like to help out but I've got this gastronomic condition which rules out all space trave-- One of the Tengu grabs hold of Mordant and the FLOCK WINGS OFF LIKE COLOSSAL BATS. MORDANT IIIIIII!!! ANGLE ON - SNOW GLOBE Zedd waves his arms around in outrage. ZEDD Isn't this just TYPICAL! We finally do somebody a good turn and just look what happens! RITA From now on it's E-V-I-L, NO exceptions! RITA (optional line) It just goes to show, ya never go into business with a booger. 29A EXT. OUTER SPACE - NIGHT 29A The Tengu warriors sweep toward us -- we see Mordant dangling from one of the Tengu's talons. MORDANT Watch the HAIRRRRRRRR!! He SWINGS PAST CAMERA and out of sight. 30 thru 32A OMITTED 32B EXT. SPACE 32B The COLORED STREAKS OF LIGHT SHOOT THROUGH THE COSMOS, heading down toward the planet, PHAEDOS. It's emerald green with two radiant golden circles around it. 32C EXT. JUNGLE CLEARING / PHAEDOS - DAY 32C The STREAKS OF COLOR hit the jungle floor and only FIVE RANGERS MATERIALIZE. TOMMY Everybody okay? KIMBERLY Where' s BILLY? ! The kids search the sky in a panic. 32D OMITTED 32E INT. COMMAND CENTER - DAY Alpha works frantically hitting buttons and levers. ALPHA 5 Ay, yi, yi, yi! The filamentary transistors have malfunctioned! SPARKS erupt from the panel, SINGING ALPHA. He snarls.

JUNGLE CLEARING / PHAEDOS - DAY (OLD SC. 32C) The Rangers continue scouring the sky as BILLY COMES FLYING. BILLY WHOAAAAAAHHHH!!! He SPLASHES DOWN in a puddle. AISHA BILLY!! The others quickly gather around him. KIMBERLY You okay? BILLY I think so. Billy looks down at the puddle. BILLY This puddle thing is really getting on my nerves. They help Billy up then take in the exotic jungle environment. They hear all sorts of EXOTIC ANIMAL SOUNDS. AISHA Welcome to beautiful downtown Phaedos. ROCKY ... Incredible... Tommy gives them all an invigorating look. TOMMY Let's see if we can find this Master warrior. He leads the team down a narrow path. 32G EXT. CHEMICAL PLANT - DAY (OLD SC 32D) 32G Establishing. 33 INT. CHEMICAL PLANT - DAY 33 Ivan is walking through a giant chemical plant with Goldar IVAN Taking over the world is one thing. It's finding good help to run it for you that's the killer. GOLDAR You want me to place a few calls? Ivan shakes his head. IVAN No need. I'm going to use the young minds of Angel Grove. GOLDAR digs for buried treasure deep in his nose. GOLDAR No offense, boss, but they might find you a little disgusting. IVAN Yes, well, I suppose you'd know a little something about that. (beat) Not to worry. I'll ever so gently lure them in and mold them into an army of devils! And what better way to entice them ... than with a little Ivan's Ooze?! Ivan approaches an enormous vat, turns a tap -- it BURPS and GLOPS as PURPLE OOZE pours out. GOLDAR But boss, what about their parents? IVAN Ah, the old and doddering. I'm going to SCOURGE their puny minds, reducing them to ZOMBIE'S. And then I'll put them to work rebuilding my empire. Bulk and Skull enter waving a "help wanted" flier. Both them are wearing their garish blazers and dark sunglasses. SKULL I understand you're looking for a few new assistants. Bulk does a G.Q. stance. BULK Well put your mind to rest `cause now you've got the best. Ivan doesn't look too pleased. IVAN What is this?! I advertised for brilliant and good looking assistants! Skull extends his hand. SKULL Hi, I'm brilliant. BULK (hand extended) And I'm good looking. Ivan steps forward. IVAN And I'm Little-Bo-Peep. Bulk and Skull lower the sunglasses and take a good look Ivan. Both of them swallow hard. SKULL Bulk... why don't we give Mr. Peep here a chance to think it over? BULK A stellar idea, Skull. They start to back away. IVAN Not so fast, greaseballs. Goldar blocks their way. IVAN You'll have to do. 34 thru 38 OMITTED 39 EXT. PHAEDOS JUNGLE - DAY 39 The Rangers move through foreboding jungle terrain, their ears alert to all the UNEARTHLY SOUNDS around them. Tommy watches Kimberly, who seems to be lost in thought. TOMMY Hey. Kimberly glances up. TOMMY You okay? Kimberly takes a moment to answer. KIMBERLY I was just thinking about Zordon... everything we've been through together. AISHA You know, meeting Zordon... teaming up with you guys, it's the best thing that's ever happened to me. ROCKY It's the best thing that's ever happened to all of us. ADAM ... He's gonna make it, guys. The others nod in agreement. TOMMY We'll get this warrior... save Zordon... and send that SLIMEBALL Ivan Ooze back to the SEWER he crawled out of. Tommy's words sink in. He stops suddenly, sensing something. ANGLE ON - MORDANT hiding behind a tree, watching the Ranger's pass. There's a HORRIFIC SCREECH -- the kids look up as the TENGU WARRIORS COME SWEEPING OUT OF THE SKY ROCKY TAKE COVER! It's too late. The Tengu attack with unbelievable ferocity They SLASH with their claws, STAB with their beaks and BATTER with their wings. KIMBERLY THEY'RE T00 STRONG?? ADAM WE NEED OUR POWERS!! Rocky is hurtled into some bushes, Aisha is knocked against a tree, Adam splashes down in a small creek. Mordant watches of this from the sidelines. He gets so excited that he starts throwing punches and kicks. MORDANT WHAM! KAPOW! BOOM! He accidently punches a tree. MORDANT #[email protected]!#! One of the Tengu gets Kimberly in a choke-hold, TOMMY HANG ON, KIMBERLY. Tommy rushes to help her and another Tengu trips him -- he TUMBLES HEAD OVER HEELS DOWN A SLOPE. We hear an OTHERWORDLY CRY as a small, hunched figure wearing a tattered robe SWINGS IN ON A VINE. He proceeds to pull off what is nothing short of a miracle. He uses the STICKS for weapons as he executes a ROUNDHOUSE KICK, a SCISSOR-KICK TAKEDOWN, a SITTING SIDE KICK, a ROUNDHOUSE DROP SPIN BACK KICK, a PARALLEL BLOCK FROM THE OUTSIDE, a REVERSE HANDSWORD and so on. The creature punctuates the hits with an exotic variation of BRUCE LEE NOISES. MORDANT What's the matter with you woodpeckers! Take this guy out! The Tengu SQUAWK and SQUEAL as the little dynamo WAILS ON THEM. MORDANT The Tengu Warriors my butt! The Tengu TURKEYS is more like it! Finally the Tengu retreat, WINGING UP THROUGH THE TREES. MORDANT Hey, aren't you bird-brains forgetting something?! One of the Tengu SWOOPS IN AND SNATCHES Mordant up. MORDANT Watch the meathooks!! The Rangers recover and exchange expressions of utter disbelief KIMBERLY Wow! That was amazing for such a little dude! The figure speaks in a HOARSE WHISPER. FIGURE You're trespassing. (beat) Now state your business. TOMMY We're looking for the Master Warrior. Do you know where we can find him? FIGURE The Master Warrior doesn't entertain visitors - KIMBERLY But we have to find him. Our leader Zordon is dying. FIGURE Zordon? Now the most amazing thing happens. The figure RISES TO FULL HEIGHT OF SIX FEET, while simultaneously shedding it's robe. Underneath is a SCANTILY CLAD, STUNNING AMAZONIAN WOMAN. We're talking B-U-I-L-T. Meet the Master warrior, DULCEA. The Rangers stand there with stunned expressions. Dulcea looks to Tommy. DULCEA How did this happen?! Tommy just gapes. Kimberly gives him a cold glance and THUNKS him one with her elbow. KIMBERLY The lady asked you a question. TOMMY Huh ... Oh, uh, we re, ah... Kimberly intervenes. KIMBERLY He was attacked by this horrific being -- Ivan Ooze. DULCEA Ivan Ooze is free?! We are all in mortal danger! She moves off - the Rangers just stand there staring at each other. DULCEA Let' s go. The Rangers quickly follow her through the brush Aisha turns to Kimberly, speaks under her breath. AISHA Kind of bossy, isn't she? 39A.. EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK - DAY (OLD SC 38) 39A CLOSE UP - OOZE CONTAINER There's a label with a picture of Ivan -- he's wearing make-up to make him a little more presentable. DOZENS OF KIDS Ranging in age from eight to seventeen, are swarming Bulk and Skull, who have set up a booth with a large banner that reads: "FREE OOZE!" Some kids STRETCH the ooze, others MOLD it, others THROW it at each other. It's an ooze free-for-all. IVAN Boys and girls, girls and boys, gather round and feast your eyes. This ain't sludge and this ain't guck... this is the one and only Ivan's Ooze! Yesireebob. It's ooey, gooey and even kind of chewy. But best of all it's FREE! Bulk and Skull run a booth. A banner screams "OOZE RULES". Kids crowd around. BULK Here you go! No pushing! SKULL There's enough for everybody! Fred approaches. FRED So where'd this guy come from? Bulk and Skull exchange apprehensive looks. SKULL Uh... that's classified, top secret, confidential, undercover information. BULK If we told you -- we'd have to kill you. Fred looks at the container in his hand but he doesn't open it. Skull sees a kid HURL some ooze at him. SKULL INCOMING! Skull ducks and Bulk gets SPLATTERED in the face. Bulk glares at Skull, wipes some goop off, FLICKS it at Skull. WIZARD Come on, come all -- it's an COZE FREE FOR ALL! He smiles, revealing a glistening silver tooth. 40 thru 42 OMITTED 42A EXT. DULCEA'S MOUNTAINSIDE COMPLEX - DAY 42A An oriental garden set against a stunning hillside vista. 43 EXT. DULCEA'S CAMP / PHAEDOS - DAY 43 The kids are seated on rocks by a lakeside, all of them drinking from clay mugs. Dulcea finishes handing out bowls. Aisha stares into hers with a grim expression. AISHA Is this... food! DULCEA They're called squirbs. Kimberly lifts out an EEL-LIKE CREATURE, and watches it SQUIRM between her fingers. KIMBERLY Mine seems to be a little undercooked. Dulcea sprinkles hers with brown flakes. DULCEA Add a few dried weevils and you'll never know the difference. The other Rangers watch as Billy holds one of the squirbs over his mouth and drops it in. He chews a few times, lets out a BURP. BILLY ... Not bad. TOMMY Listen, we appreciate your hospitality, but we really don't have much time. Dulcea looks to Tommy. DULCEA What do you know of the Great Power? KIMBERLY Only that we need it to defeat Ivan Ooze. Dulcea's eyes move from Ranger to Ranger. DULCEA It is said that to those who possess the Power... all things are possible. BILLY Where did it originate? DULCEA In another time, another dimension. It was brought here long ago by the "Nathadians", a people who are now all but extinct. They built an impenetrable stone Monolith to store the power and keep it from their enemies. (ominous) For thousands of years, beings from all over the Universe have tried to obtain it... ALL have perished. Dulcea's words hang heavily in the air. AISHA So how can we get to it? DULCEA The only way to obtain the power is to achieve the highest state of being... TOMMY And how do we do that? DULCEA By learning the ancient art of Ninjetti. It is the Genesis of what you on earth have come to know as the Ninja. (beat) It is the perfect union of mind, body and spirit. ROCKY Look, Zordon doesn't have much longer to live. And for all we know, Angel Grove could already be under attack. We don't have TIME for this. As Rocky is talking, a flubbery looking SNOUT works it's way over Kimberly's shoulder. She hasn't noticed it yet. DULCEA You don't understand. If you do not have the Ninjetti, the power will destroy you. (beat) To reach the Monolith we must traverse the Neola jungle. We will train today, and set out on foot tomorrow. The snout works it's way underneath Kimberly's chin -- she SCREAMS FOR ALL SHE'S WORTH. INCLUDE - A TERRIFIED SNOGGLE. This is Dulcea's ant-eater like assistant. He jumps up and down, YAMMERING and GESTICULATING. SNOGGLE HNUGLHLU PHUNGLUMP BUGHLSMRPH GBUJIPHN HUPHLGMPNORU!!! DULCEA Snoggle, you watch your language! Snoggle now re-fills Aisha's tea-cup. SNOGGLE Slnughyu buglhugrmrph? AISHA Excuse me? SNOGGLE Slnughyu buglhugrmrph? DULCEA He wants to know if you'd like a cube of sugar in your tea. AISHA Ah... sure. We hear a PHOOT as Snoggle BLOWS A CUBE OF SUGAR OUT HIS SNOUT AND IT SPLASHES INTO AISHA'S TEA. Aisha stares at the cube a moment. AISHA Ah... thanks. The other Rangers watch as Billy holds one of the squibs above his mouth and drops it in. He chews a few times, lets out a BURP. BILLY ... Not bad. 43A EXT. ANGEL GROVE LANE - DAY (OLD SC 40) 43A Night has fallen on Angel Grove. We PAN ACROSS a quiet, middle- class neighborhood, settle on a two story house. 43B INT. LIVING ROOM / KELMAN-RESIDENCE - DAY (OLD SC 41) 43B CLOSE ON - OOZE CONTAINER We PULL BACK to reveal it's sitting on a table. Mr Kelman enters, looks it over curiously. He picks it up, opens it and sticks his finger inside. Suddenly a CRACKLING ELECTRICAL CURRENT RUNS OVER HIS ENTIRE BODY. His face goes blank and his eyes momentarily GLOWS PURPLE. Now he strides purposefully out the door. 43C thru 47 OMITTED 48 EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY 48 Dulcea and the Rangers are gathered around a bird-bath stand with FLAMES leaping out of it. DULCEA In the language of the Nathadians, "Nin" stands for "man", "jetti" stands for "animal". Ninjetti - man and animal, together as one. (beat) Now, put your hands inside the flame. AISHA Yeah, right. DULCEA It will not harm you. The kids hesitate a moment, then reluctantly put their hands inside the flame. Aisha makes a horrific expression... AISHA Just kidding. They remove their hands -- they're filled with sand. AISHA Wow. Sand. DULCEA Now tell me... what do you see? Aisha studies the sand for a moment -- it MAGICALLY TAKE ON THE SHAPE OF A BEAR. AISHA (bedazzled) I see... a bear DULCEA Aisha, you are the Bear, stalwart and bold. AISHA Stylin'! Dulcea turns to Rocky. His sand MAGICALLY TAKES ON THE SHAPE OF AN APE. ROCKY I see... an Ape. DULCEA Rocky, you are the Mighty Ape. We see each of them DISCOVER THEIR ANIMAL. BILLY I see... a fox DULCEA Close. Billy, you are the Wolf, cunning and swift. And now Kimberly. She studies hers for a moment. It looks like a bird. KIMBERLY I think its some kind of bird. DULCEA Kimberly, you are the Crane, agile and sublime. Now Adam. ADAM That's gotta be a frog. DULCEA Adam, you are the Frog, quick as lightning. And finally, Tommy. TOMMY It's... an eagle? DULCEA Look closer. TOMMY ... A falcon? DULCEA Tommy, you are the Falcon, Winged Lord of the Sky. Kimberly regards Dulcea with true admiration. KIMBERLY How do you know so much about the Ninjetti? Dulcea stands tall and proud. DULCEA I... am the sole living descendant of the "Nathadians". (beat) Now prepare yourselves for the most intense physical and mental training known to man and animal. 48A INT. KELMAN HOUSE / LIVING ROOM - DAY (OLD SC 44) 48A Fred enters the living room and searches for his Dad. FRED Dad... ??! He heaves a frustrated sigh. 48B INT. KELMAN HOUSE / MASTER BEDROOM - DAY (OLD SC 45) 48B Fred enters the empty master bedroom, a look of concern coming over him. FRED DAD?! 48C EXT. KELMAN HOUSE - DAY (OLD SC 46) 48C Fred comes outside as several KIDS approach, all of them looking forlorn. KID #1 You seen my parents? FRED I can't find my dad either. KID #2 What's going on?! Suddenly a WILD KID wearing grunge clothes runs by HOWLING LIKE A BANSHEE. He's holding a container of ooze in one hand and a baseball bat in the other. He SMASHES a couple of trash cans with his bat. WILD KID Ooze, ooze, ooze rules!! The kid BASHES IN a mailbox then runs off. Fred looks startled. FRED That guy was the student body President 49 thru 50 OMITTED 51 EXT. DULGEA'S GARDEN - DAY 51 Kimberly and Snoggle observe as Dulcea walks ON HER HANDS across a narrow bamboo log that spans a pond. A waterfall churns in the b.g. DULCEA The crane maintains it's agility through the perfect harmony of mind, body and spirit. She leaps into the air, does a ROUND-HOUSE KICK, lands perfectly on the narrow span. KIMBERLY Awesome! Dulcea reaches the end of the log, flips through the air lands flawlessly on the ground. Kimberly heaves a sigh, climbs onto the bamboo and start walking across, balancing precariously on her hands. She gets about a quarter of the way, loses her balance, and falls into the shallow pond. Snoggle laughs, making a loud HONKING SOUND. Kimberly recovers, shoots him a look. KIMBERLY Let's see you do it . SNOGGLE (indignant) Ghun Phnug Gnouphl. He marches to the pole, Dulcea holds him back. DULCEA Snoggle, we don't have time for you to show off 52 thru 53 OMITTED 53A EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY 53A Dulcea and Rocky are standing at the bottom of a twenty foot pole with an exotic oriental carving DULCEA The ape is strong, but more importantly it is flexible and free. Dulcea now SCRAMBLES UP THE POLE WITH THE NIMBLENESS OF A SPIDER. In less than ten seconds she reaches the top. Rocky shakes his head in disbelief. ROCKY Who is this lady? Now she SLIDES DOWN like a firewoman, drops beside Rocky. He takes hold of the pole, focuses for a moment. ROCKY Here goes! It starts SCURRYING UPWARD. He gets about fifteen feet in the air, loses his grip, PLUMMETS AND SLAMS TO THE GROUND. 54A EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY (OLD SC 53) 54A Dulcea and Billy circle one another, fighting with spinning WHISTLING sticks. Dulcea is blindfolded, Billy isn't. DULCEA The wolf relies on it's enhanced senses to guide it... He can hear what we cannot hear, he can smell what we cannot smell. Billy takes SWING after SWING -- Dulcea easily DEFLECTS every blow. Now Dulcea takes numerous SWINGS, THWACKING Billy repeatedly and finally KNOCKING him INTO THE WATER. 54B EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY 54B Dulcea, Adam and Snoggle stand in an area filled with FLYING INSECTS. DULCEA The frog remains still and silent while it assesses its target... then strikes out in the blink of an eye. We hear a TRILLING SOUND as Dulcea watches some kind of insect dart around her. THWAP! The TRILLING SOUND is gone. Dulcea has literally caught the insect in the blink of an eye. Adam shakes his head in disbelief. He waits a moment, hears a TAT-TAT-TAT sound and watches a insect zip around him. He lashes out numerous times, missing the insect completely. THWUMP! With lightning speed Snoggle VACUUMS the fly into his snout. CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH. Adam speaks under his breath. ADAM Show off. 54C EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY (OLD SC 52) 54C Aisha watches as Dulcea goes into a bear stance. DULCEA The bear is sturdy as a towering tree. Nothing can uproot it. Snoggle CHARGES Dulcea, SLAMS INTO HER. She remains as rooted as a tree. Snoggle meanwhile suffers some serious bodily damage. AISHA Girl, you've got to be kidding me. Snoggle recovers and faces Aisha. Aisha shrugs, goes into a bear stance. Snoggle charges, SLAMS INTO HER and sends HER FLYING! 54D thru 54E OMITTED 54F EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - DAY 54F Dulcea and Tommy are standing on a towering rock rising out of a dark lake. DULCEA The falcon never struggles with the air, but rather becomes one with it. Now Dulcea does the impossible. She LEAPS OFF THE ROCK, SOARS FIFTY FEET through the air, AND LANDS on another protruding rock. Tommy is stunned. DULCEA (calling out) JOIN WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE! Tommy psyches himself up. TOMMY You can do this. You can do this. You can do this... He spreads his arms out, LEAPS... and DROPS LIKE A ROCK exploding into THE BLACK WATER. 54G INT. COMMAND CENTER - NIGHT (OLD SC 54E) 54G Alpha fusses over Zordon, who is looking a good ten years older. ZORDON ... Alpha, I am deeply concerned about the Rangers... ALPHA 5 I told them it was too dangerous, but they wouldn't listen. ZORDON ... We must try to communicate with them. Alpha looks out over the decimated Command Center. ALPHA 5 Perhaps if I could locate a vertical-deflector then I could assemble a holographic-comlink. Zordon shudders in pain, closes his eyes. Alpha watches over his mentor, shakes his head in anguish. ALPHA Ay, yi, yi, yi, yi . 55 OMITTED 55A EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - NIGHT 55A Dulcea leads the kids through a circular opening in one wall, all of them look completely wiped out. She reaches an ornate doorway, faces the Rangers. DULCEA Each of you must reach deep within and draw upon your natural instincts... Only then will you know the way of the Ninjetti. (beat) Rest for a few hours. We will continue at daybreak. She heads through the door. KIMBERLY So where are we supposed to sleep? Snoggle points to the campfire. SNOGGLE Buhph nghujr. He pushes Kimberly toward it making a "Na na na na na" sound through his snout. He then hurries inside and SLAMS the door. KIMBERLY That guy's cruisin' for a bruisin'. The kids approach the dying fire, all of them limping a little. BILLY I can hardly walk... AISHA I've never been this sore in my life. They drop around the fire, a few of them GROANING. They stare into the orange coals for a long moment, all of them looking disillusioned. BILLY Do you guys really think we can pull this off? It takes a moment to get a response. ADAM Maybe if we had more time. TOMMY ... I wonder... We've been relying on our Morphin Powers for so long... maybe we've forgotten how to rely on ourselves. There's a somber silence. TOMMY We should get some rest. They all settle in for the night. 55B EXT. INNER CITY CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT (OLD SC 47) 55B A PURPLE HAZE OF SMOKE has settled on the construction site. Suddenly, mysteriously, SWARMS OF ZOMBIFIED PARENTS emerge from the vapors - We see Mr. Kelman amongst them. Ivan steps forward, followed by Goldar. IVAN Ladies and gentlemen, Simon says... STOP! All the parents stop. IVAN Simon says... stand on one foot! All the parents stand on one foot. Ivan seems to be taking a perverse glee in all this. IVAN Simon says... GOLDAR Quack like a'duck! All the parents start QUACKING LIKE DUCKS. Ivan slowly turns to Goldar, gives him an icy stare. GOLDAR It just slipped out. Ivan turns back to the QUACKING parents. IVAN SHUT UP!! The parents keep quacking. GOLDAR You didn't say "Simon says". IVAN (irritated) Simon says SHUT UP!!! (they shut up) Now, as soon as I give the word I want all of you to start digging. (beat) Do I make myself perfectly -- The zombie parents have already started going to work. Ivan shakes his head in exasperation. IVAN This is the Iast time I use parents for anything! 55C EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - NIGHT 55C The Rangers are fast asleep. A night wind WHISTLES through the trees, causing the branches to shiver. After a moment, there's movement in the bushes. Suddenly, amazingly, a WOLF emerges -- his mane glistening in the moonlight, his eyes GLOWING LIKE FIRE. He surveys the sleeping clan, moves straight toward Billy. He stands inches away from him, watches him with an intense gaze. Billy stirs slightly. The embers cast an orange glow on Kimberly's sleeping face A SHADOW moves over her and two CRANE LEGS step into frame. There's a FLURRY OF FLAPPING WINGS as a FALCON SWOOPS DOWN and lands on a rock directly above Tommy. The bird fixes on Tommy with its piercing eyes. We hear a GRUNTING SOUND as the SILHOUETTE OF AN APE APPEARS: Now a FROG HOPS through the air and lands inches away from Adam. The frog sits there a moment, it's THROAT THROBBING Now we hear a DEEP GROWL and a tree SHAKES. Aisha fidgets in her sleep as an ENORMOUS BEAR SHADOW FALLS OVER HER. Now, all at once, the six animals VANISH INTO THIN AIR LIKE SPIRITS OF THE NIGHT. 55D EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT (PART OLD SC 55B) 55D Ivan and Goldar patrol the parents who are busy digging. IVAN Let's pick it up here! I've got a schedule to keep. In twenty four hours the ooze is gonna hit the fan! Goldar suddenly point to the sky. GOLDAR Hey, boss! THE TENGU DROPS INTO THE SCENE, SQUEALING MORDANT What kind of landing was that?! These clowns are a menace to the sky IVAN How did you fare? Mordant waves Ivan off. MORDANT Oh, it couldn't've gone better. The Power Rangers didn't know what hit them . The Tengu appear, one of them SQUAWKS and makes grand gestures. MORDANT That's right. And then we threw one of them off a mountain and another one into a raqing river! IVAN So they've been destroyed? The Tengu SQUAWKS some more. MORDANT "Basically". IVAN What do you mean "basically"? MORDANT Well... we were about to finish them off... when this huge monster came out of nowhere! MORDANT Okay, maybe he wasn't so huge. But you should've seen the size of his STICKS A pensive look comes over Ivan... IVAN Did these sticks make a whistling sound? MORDANT How'd you know? IVAN Dulcea! (beat) That miserable, manipulating loathsome she-devil of a WITCH!! To help make the point Mordant SPITS on the ground. IVAN How could you let them get away?! If Dulcea leads them to the Great Power, everything will be ruined! They must be OBLITERATED! One of the Tengu SCREECHES again. MORDANT What're you talking about?! It wasn't my fault! You're the featherbrains that let them get away! Ivan looks up to the sky. IVAN I call upon the Powers of Darkness to enrich the evil of my creatures by tenfold! LIGHTNING RIPS from the sky and ZAPS THE TENGU, CAUSING THEM TO GLOW RADIANTLY. IVAN And now the coup de grace, to lead my tribe to victorious battle! He shoots a BOLT OF ENERGY AND CREATES THE OUEEN TENGU! She is a different color than the rest and her eyes GLOW RED. Mordant shakes his head in wonder. MORDANT Where does he come up with this stuff? The Queen spreads her wings and makes the most HORRENDOUS SCREECH imaginable. IVAN Queen Tengu, lead-your warriors to Phaedos, FEAST YOURSELVES UPON THE POWER RANGERS AND BRING ME DULCEA!

As they get out from under their blankets they're shocked to discover that they're all wearing Ninjetti costumes with animal symbols on their chest. TOMMY How the heck?!... ROCKY What's going on?! KIMBERLY I don't believe it! Dulcea approaches, a wondrous expression on her face. DULCEA You have been visited by the animal spirits... they have given you their blessing. The Rangers continue to admire their symbols in silent wonder. 55G EXT. DULCEA'S GARDEN / PHAEDOS - MORNING (OLD SC 55E) 55G MONTAGE HARD DRIVING MUSIC KICKS IN. 1. We see Aisha standing on a rock, her whole body flowing in a martial art exercise. 2. Billy and Dulcea continue to fight with whistling sticks. Billy is starting to get the hang of it. He hits Dulcea a few times, then she CLOBBERS him. 3. Kimberly balances along the bamboo log again. She does a FLIP and lands it, however one foot slips off and she struggles to maintain her balance. 4. Tommy stands on the protruding rock again, spreads high like a falcon, SOARS THROUGH THE AIR. He gets about ten feet then DROPS INTO THE WATER. 5. Rocky climbs up the oriental pole -- this time he makes it up about FIFTEEN FEET before he slips. He only drops five feet. 6. Adam stands amidst overhanging trees and goes into his frog animal stance, his entire being focused on his actions. 7. Billy stands off alone practicing with the whistling sticks. The weapons are now a BLURR in his hands. 8. Kimberly balances along the log, executes a FLIP, lands it perfectly, throws her arms up triumphantly. 9. Adam stands on the lakeshore, cncentrating on a buzzing insect. He strikes out at it, but just misses it. 10. Aisha also does something appropriate. 55H EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK - DAY (OLD SC 55F) 55H HUNDREDS OF KIDS AND TEENAGERS fill the park, all of them wearing PURPLE CLOTHES. They're all dirty and grunged out They jump around, breaking stuff, sparring with each other It's total pandemonium. Suddenly, an ERUPTION OF SMOKE -- and Ivan, disguised as the wizard, MAGICALLY APPEARS. The crowd CHEERS, Nuremburg style, fists raised. CROWD OOZE! OOZE! OOZE! OOZE! IVAN Thank you! Please! You're too kind. (sotto voce) Finally. a little appreciation where it's deserved. VOICE We love you Ivan! IVAN Right back at ya!- (he smiles) Now, WHO MISSES SCHOOL?! CROWD NOT US! IVAN AND WHO MISSES RULES?! CROWD NOT US! IVAN AND WHO WANTS TO JOIN ME IN RAISING HELL ACROSS THE UNIVERSE?! CROWD WE DO! At the edge, Fred discreetly approaches Bulk and Skull. FRED Can I have a word with you guys? (he pulls them aside) What's really going on here?! Where are everybody's parents? Bulk and Skull exchange a look. SKULL Like we said before, that's classified, top secret... Fred decides to be tricky. FRED Look, Ivan wants me to go dump a load of garbage all over them. BULK Well, why didn't you say so?! SKULL They're at the World Center Construction Site. Fred nods. FRED Uh. OOZE RULES! He does a ridiculous mock salute. Bulk and Skull repeat it. BULK AND SKULL OOZE RULES ! Fred rolls his eyes and hurries away. 56 thru 57A OMITTED 58 EXT. JUNGLE / PHAEDOS - MORNING 58 Dulcea leads Snoggle and the Rangers up a stone path. They approach a bush filled with exotic berries. All of them start eating the berries. TOMMY Dulcea... how do you and Zordon know each other? Dulcea reminisces. DULCEA We belonged to an interstellar Peace Keeping Force known as the "Order of the Meledan". (beat) Zordon was widely regarded as the finest Commander in the Galaxy. He was a true Legend... If it wasn't for him, the Universe would be a very different place from what it is today. The kids are overwhelmed by what they're hearing. ROCKY So... what happened? DULCEA Over time our enemies were defeated... I returned to Phaedos, Zordon moved on to continue the struggle elsewhere. (beat) Until you kids showed up, I hadn't heard from him for centuries. The Rangers are silent for a moment. DULCEA He was always an inspiration... Dulcea speaks with grim-visaged intensity. DULCEA This is why I'm taking you to the Nathadian Monolith. That is why I'm teaching you the Ninjetti. (beat) If Zordon dies... then a piece of all of us dies... and the force of good within the Universe will be dealt an irreparable blow. These words strike deep in the kids. 59 EXT. INNER CITY CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY 59 The bulldozers and earth movers have dug out a twenty foot pit. IVAN leads Goldar and Mordant through the site, passing dozens of laboring parents. MORDANT As soon as we've taken over the world I'm gonna change my name to Sir Mordant. Or how about MAJOR Mordant?! GOLDAR How about Major Moron? IVAN How about the two of you shut Up and pay attention!! The entourage comes to a stop, Goldar and Mordant can't believe what's before them. MORDANT What is THAT! INCLUDE - A HUGE MECHANICAL ARM AND LEG EXTRUDING FROM THE DIRT. IVAN Feast your eyes upon the exoskeleton of the barbaric HORNITOR! (to parents) KEEP DIGGING. THE DREADFUL SCORPITRON SHOULD BE CLOSE BY. (beat) ONCE I HAVE MY ECTO-MORPHICON MACHINES UP AND RUNNING, I SHALL ANNIHILATE ANGEL GROVE... AND THEN... THE WORLD ANGLE ON FRED as he darts through the construction site, taking care not to be seen. He hunkers down behind a stack of two-by-fours, searches the area. He spots his dad, speaks under his breath. FRED Dad...?! He glances around to make sure the coast is clear, then sprints off to where his dad is digging, grabs his hand. FRED We have to get out of here! MR. KELMAN Dig... dig... dig... FRED Dad?!... It's me, Fred! Mr. Kelman just gives Fred a blank stare. MR. KELMAN Dig... dig... dig... Suddenly an ARM FALLS ON FRED'S SHOULDER. MORDANT (O.S.) Gotchya! Fred whips araund, finds Mordant standing behind him. He SPRINGS TO ACTION pulling off a lightning quick IRON HAMMER FIST STRIKE, a PALM HEEL BLOCK, A FRONT KICK WITH JUMPING KICK. Mordant is getting pummeled. The last kick sends him FLYING BACK INTO THE DIRT. Fred takes off as Goldar stands over Mordant. MORDANT Just shut your gap! GOLDAR Did I say anything? 60 OMITTED 60 61 INT. COMMAND CENTER - DAY 61 Zordon is looking more decrepit than ever. Alpha inserts tube into a make-shift electronic contraption. ALPHA 5 By bouncing ultra-high frequencies off one of the network satellites, I can send a long-range pulsar signal to within TWO FEET of the Rangers coordinates. ZORDON (with difficulty) ... I just pray we're not too late. Alpha continues making adjustments. ALPHA 5 Let's give it a whirl. He flicks a switch and the screen LIGHTS UP WITH STATIC. The the same reporter we saw at the opening of the movie appears. REPORTER Angel Grove Police have been fielding hundreds of calls from concerned citizens as the number of missing gersons continues to grow There's more STATIC, then IVAN APPEARS AS THE WIZARD. IVAN Hi, folks, Ivan Ooze here. ALPHA 5 Ai, yi, yi, yi, yi As Ivan speaks we see Mordant behind him waving into camera. IVAN Are you bored with your work? Are you bored with your family Are you bored with your 1ife Well, come on down to Ooze City and LET'S GET STICKY! 62 OMITTED 62 63 EXT. ROCKY TERRAIN - DAY 63 The group reaches the crest of a ridge -- off in the background we can see the outline of the Nathadian Monolith. DULCEA The Monolith is there in the distance. The kids strain to get a better look. DULCEA This is as far as I can take you. The kids are thrown by this. KIMBERLY You're leaving us?! DULCEA I have taught you all that I know. Now you must achieve the Ninjetti on your own. The kids share glances, not quite knowing what to say. DULCEA It is said that once you've reached the power... you have only ten triacs to release it. BILLY What's a Triac? DULCEA About twenty seconds in your time. TOMMY And how do we release the power? DULCEA The legend goes that you release the power with the power. ADAM What does that mean! DULCEA That is a question that even I cannot answer. (beat) Remember, ten triacs. After that something bad will happen. KIMBERLY Like...how bad? Dulcea gives them a grim look. DULCEA They say the power will throw off a super-heated, radioactive fireball, instantly reducing you to ash and bits of charred bone. Aisha nods. AISHA That's pretty bad. TOMMY Thank you, Dulcea. For everything. Dulcea catches her hand and six Rangers put their hands on top of hers. DULCEA Ka'Alabas tor nartu En'Kata-Tay. (beat) May your animals watch over you. 64 OMITTED 64 65 EXT. CHEMICAL PLANT - DAY 65 The sky above the chemical plant is BOILING WITH DARK CLOUDS. 56 INT. CHEMICAL PLANT - DAY 66 The parents have finished assembling the STEEL TOWER -- thick cables run from the base to the skeletal heads of Hornitor and Scorpitron. We see a group of parents fastening clear plastic pipes to the skeletal feet -- the pipes are attached to the vat of ooze. Mordant videotapes Ivan as he struts past a giant mechanical foot. IVAN Finally, after centuries of waiting, my Ecto-Morphicon machines are ready to take on the world! Mordant gets the camera a little too close to Ivan. IVAN GET THAT THING OUT OF MY FACE! Ivan SWATS Mordant and the camera FLIES up through the air and SMASHES against a wall. MORDANT Oh, man, that was a rental! ANGLE ON - FRED watching from behind a generator, an alarmed look on his face. Ivan steps up onto a platform. IVAN Mordant... let the ooze flow! Mordant pulls a lever and the OOZE SLITHERS THROUGH THE PIPES AND STARTS FILLING OUT THE GIANT EXOSKELETONS. IVAN Goldar... the roof! Goldar presses a button and the roof of the plant ROLLS OPEN, REVEALING THE TUMULTUOUS SKIES ABOVE. IVAN Looks like a fine day for raising HELL! Ivan holds his arms up to the heavens. IVAN HECALE MENNIPUS LIBRI MAGUS! THE SKY CRACKLES WITH THUNDER AND A JAGGED BOLT OF LIGHTNING STREAKS DOWN, ZAPS THE METAL TOWER SENDING UP AN ENORMOUS ERUPTION OF SPARKS! IVAN Bullseye! ELECTROMAGNETIC CHARGES TRAVEL THE LENGTH OF THE CABLES AND HIT HORNITOR AND SCORPITRON WITH SEARING BLASTS OF ENERGY. IVAN LIFE!! Give my creatures LIFE! Mordant admires Ivan. MORDANT This guy is the King! Now the most amazing thing of all happens... The SCINTILLATING BEHEMOTHS AWAKE FROM THE DEAD, THEIR EYES AND MOUTHS OPENING, THEIR ARMS REACHING UPWARD. The beasts ROAR OUT IN THUNDEROUS RAGE. Mordant's HAIR LITERALLY STANDS ON END -- he quickly retreats behind a drum. FRED looks on in horror. IVAN PARENTS OF ANGEL GROVE. All of them turn their attention to Ivan. IVAN YOU HAVE SERVED YOUR PURPOSE. NOW YOU WILL RETURN TO THE CONSTRUCTION SITE AND LEAP TO YOUR DEMISE! The parents just stand there with blank expressions. IVAN What're you waiting for??... Goldar taps him on the shoulder and he spins around. IVAN What! GOLDAR You forgot to say 'Simon says." Ivan shakes his head dismally. 67 EXT. ROPE BRIDGE - DAY 67 The Rangers crest a hill and Adam, who's in the lead, suddenly drops down - the others following suit. They peer over the ridge -- their eyes wide. Before them, a tenuous rope bridge leads to a vast rock landing. The ocean RAGES BELOW. On top of the island is the Nathadian Monolith. It's a mind- boggling wonder from another time and place. Between the Rangers and the bridge, the Tengu Warriors are on patrol. KIMBERLY Man, these are the last guys I wanted to see. AISHA Whadda we do now? Kimberly surveys the area. BILLY That's the only way to the Monolith... ROCKY We can take these guys! Tommy pulls all of them into a huddle. 68 EXT. ROPE BRIDGE - DAY 68 The Tengu are on full alert. One of them hears something, snaps around, there's nothing there. Another Tengu looks down as a frog hops between his leg. He SCREECHES and STOMPS down his taloned foot, missing the creature by inches. We hear a CAW and the Queen Tengu squints as she spots a falcon circling in the sky above. The Queen is perched on top of a 20 foot rock face. She looks around hesitantly. Now the Rangers ATTACK, some of them LUNGING OFF ROCKS, others BURSTING out of crevices, others coming over the walls. Billy wields his WHISTLING sticks -- misses several times, then starts BASHING and THWACKING the feathered beasts. The Queen SHOOTS A LASER BLAST from her eyes -- it EXPLODES before Tommy. Kimberly battles another Tengu and the creature forces her back on to the rickety bridge. The Queen FIRES ANOTHER BLAST. ROCKY LOOK OUT! Rocky DIVES, knocking Aisha away from the bolt. Adam and one of the Tengu circle each other warily. ADAM The frog silently assesses its target, then strikes out... Suddenly the Tengu is HURTLED BACKWARD TEN FEET THROUGH THE AIR. We didn't even see Adam move. ADAM ... in the blink of an eye. Tommy steps up behind a Tengu. TOMMY Yo, Tweety! The Tengu turns around and Tommy WHALLOPS HIM WITH A SPINNING- HEEL KICK. A Tengu faces down Aisha and she goes into a bear stance. AISHA The bear is sturdy as a towering tree. Nothing can uproot it. The Tengu CHARGES LIKE A BULL, SLAMS INTO AISHA. She holds fast and the bird EXPLODES INTO A CLOUD OF FEATHERS. AISHA Bye, bye birdy. Kimberly continues balancing precariously on the bridge as she EXCHANGES BLOWS with her foe. She finally drops into a crane stance... then just like Dulcea she LEAPS THROUGH THE AIR, EXECUTES A BRUTAL SPINNING HELL KICK and sends the birdman TUMBLING OFF THE BRIDGE. In a movement that seems to defy gravity, she lands perfcctly back on the swinging bridge. KIMBERLY Hasta la Pasta, Bigbird! Billy swings his sticks, BASHES one of the Tengu in the beak -- the creature EXPLODES INTO A CLOUD OF FEATHERS! BILLY AIM FOR THEIR BEAKS! Tommy reaches the top of a rack. He sees a Tengu making a KAMIKAZE DIVE TOWARD KIMBERLY. TOMMY DIVES, SOARING THIRTY FEET THROUGH THE AIR -- HE INTERCEPTS THE TENGU AND THEY SPIN TOWARD EARTH TOGETHER. They HIT the ground and EXCHANGE BLOWS AS THEY FALL OVER ONE ANOTHER. Rocky SLAMS another Tengu in the beak, KABLAM -- the creature is OBLITERATED. Tommy LEAPS INTO THE AIR, NAILS two Tengu in the beaks. They BOTH BURST IN AN EXPLOSION OF FEATHERS. The Queen shoots another BOLT OF ENERGY -- a rock EXPLODES, SHOWERING THE KIDS WITH SHRAPNEL. Aisha turns to Rocky. AISHA It's up to you. Rocky takes a deep breath, goes into a crouch position. Incredibly he SCALES THE WALL IN THE SAME WAY HE WENT UP THE POLE. HE FLIPS OVER THE TOP and lands right before the Queen Tengu. He looks her dead in the eye. ROCKY Polly wanna cracker? With that, he executes a devastating SPINNING-HEEL KICK and the Queen BURSTS INTO OBLIVION. KIMBERLY ALL RIGHT, ROCKY! Instantly, the remaining Tengu retreat, SQUAWKING and CAWWING in rage. The kids turn to eaeh other, sharing in a moment of triumph. ADAM WE DID IT!! 72 EXT. ANGEL GROVE TOWER - DAY 72 We're on top of a high tower overlooking the entire city There's a BURST OF PURPLE SMOKE -- Ivan, Mordant and Goldar appear. Ivan looks out on the city, holds up his arms theatrically. IVAN ANGEL GROVE... I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE YOU TO A COUPLE OF MY NEAREST AND DEAREST FRIENDS... HORNITOR! HORNITOR APPEARS on the street ROARING like a fiend. His enormous foot DROPS DOWN AND CRUSHES A CAR INTO OBLIVION. IVAN And his trimetallic partner in crime... SCORPITRON!! SCORPITRON APPEARS on the street and BASHES IN THE SIDE OF A BUILDING, SENDING GLASS AND DEBRIS EVERYWHERE. IVAN THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!!! GOLDAR GO IVAN!! Mordant turns to Ivan and throws his arms up in jubilation. MORDANT LONG LIVE THE BOOGER MAN! 73 INT. COMMAND CENTER - DAY 73 Zordon, now barely alive, watches as Alpha makes more adjustments to his contraption. ALPHA 5 That should do it. we won't be able to hear them, but they SHOULD be able to hear us. (beat) Here goes. There's STATIC and then we see the reporter again. NEWS REPORTER ... the Mayor has declared a state of emergency and asked that the city be immediately evacuated. He has reiterated the need for everyone to remain calm. We see images of PEOPLE SCREAMING THEIR GUTS out as they CLAMBER PAST CAMERA. NEWS REPORTER Angel Grove has never before known such a crisis and we can now only pray for the swift arrival of the Power Rangers! ALPHA 5 Ay, yi, yi, yi! Zordon speaks in a whisper. ZORDON ... Alpha, keep trying! 74 74 thru OMITTED thru 75 75 75A EXT. MONOLITH - DAY 75A The kids climb up on top of the rock bluff -- before them is a huge black Monolith. There's all sorts of charred bones and skeletons strewn around it, some of them human, some of them alien. They approach the massive block, stand before it in awe struck silence. In the middle of the Monolith there's a large circle with the six animals of the Ninjetti carved into it. ROCKY ... The Nathadian Monolith... Kimberly looks at all the bones -- instinctively puts her hand on her animal symbol. KIMBERLY I guess these guys weren't so lucky. A few of the kids walk around the Monolith, examining it more closely. AISHA We've come all this way for a rock wall?! BILLY There should be a way to open it. Billy &;Tommy latch their hands over the block, searching for an opening. BILLY ... Nothing. ROCKY Release the power with the power. Rocky steps back, THROWS HIS SHOULDER into the Monolith with a THUMP, winces in pain. AISHA Not that kind of power. The kids exchange discouraged looks. BILLY ... There has to be something we're missing. The kids look crestfallen. ROCKY It can't end like this... Suddenly a SIZZLE OF ELECTRICITY forms in front of them. KIMBERLY What NOW! The kids mouth's fall open as... a HOLOGRAPHIC IMAGE OF ZORDON'S WITHERED FACE APPEARS. He speaks in a barely audible voice. ZORDON Rangers... Ivan has invaded the city... time is running out... Zordon's image FLICKERS a few times then STABILIZES again. ZORDON Each of you are now in possession of miraculous skills... but only when the six become one will you have the strength to harness the Great Power. His IMAGE FLICKERS then FADES AWAY. KIMBERLY ZORDON!! Billy studies the circle with zealous eyes. TOMMY Six become one... the combined forces of the Ninjetti. ROCKY Strength in numbers!! They silently assemble in a line, all of them interlock: hands. They face the Monolith with fire in their eyes. BILLY I am the wolf, cunning and swift! KIMBERLY I am the crane, agile and sublime! AISHA I am the bear, stalwart and bold! ADAM I am the frog, quick as lightning! ROCKY I am the mighty ape! TOMMY And I am the Falcon, Winged Lord of the Sky! RANGERS WE... ARE THE NINJETTI!!! A mysterious HALO OF LIGHT SHROUDS the Rangers and they dissapear INTO THIN AIR. 75B OMITTED 75B 75C INT. MONOLITH - DAY 75C The kids BURST THROUGH A WALL OF LIGHT and come down together inside a vast cavern. There's a pyramid shaped steel object in the center of the room, a RADIANT LIGHT SHINING FROM IT. AISHA What HAPPENED?! ADAM Where are we?! BILLY Of course! The power is of another world. Another dimension. KIMBERLY WE'VE GOT TEN TRIACS BEFORE WE'RE TOAST!! ROCKY That's twenty seconds!! The kids advance toward the pyramid. TOMMY Release the power WITH the power. AISHA What does that mean?! Adam notices their symbols are glowing. BILLY Our SYMBOLS. The kids ogle the radiant emblems. Kimberly takes hold of hers and it COMES OFF in her hand -- there's a mirror on the other side. ROCKY Ten seconds and counting!! KIMBERLY It's some kind of mirror! Kimberly looks at her reflection and primps her hair. The other's remove their symbols. AISHA Release the power with the power. BILLY I've got it! We use the mirrors to reflect the light back into itself!! ROCKY THREE SECONDS!! TOMMY LET'S DO IT!? All of them turn their mirrors toward the pyramid. A BEAM OF LIGHT SHOOT FROM THE POWER; INTO THE MIRRORS AND BACK IN TO THE POWER. We hear a RUMBLING SOUND as the earth starts to SHAKE. The Rangers look to each other, horrified. Then everything falls still and silent... and then a miracle happens. We hear a HARMONIOUS, OTHERWORLDLY CHORUS as the pyramid OPENS UP, REVEALING THE MOST GLORIOUS SOURCE OF LIGHT IN THE UNIVERSE. The kids shield their eyes from the brilliance, all of them wearing wonder-struck expressions. SIX BEAMS OF COLORED LIGHT SHOOT OUT AND HIT EACH OF THE RANGERS... AND THEIR POWER RANGERS UNIFORMS MATERIALIZE ON THEM! Their visors are clear so we can see their faces. TOMMY WE HAVE THE GREAT POWER!! Now the symbols in their hands TRANSFORM INTO... ROCKY NEW POWER COINS!! BILLY OUR MORPHERS ARE ON LINE! AISHA. WE DID IT!! ADAM HANG ON, ANGEL GROVE. KIMBERLY WE'RE ON OUR WAY! They hit their communicators -- they instantly TRANSFORM INTO SIX IRIDESCENT COLUMNS OF COLOR AND BLAST OFF. 75D EXT. MOUNTAIN SIDE / PHAEDOS - DAY 75D Dulcea and Snoggle watch as the COLUMNS OF COLOR streak away from the planet, leaving behind a RAINBOW with the six colors of the Power Rangers. SNOGGLE Spherhlegnu. DULCEA Yes, Snoggle... they now have the Great Power of the Ninjetti! 76 EXT. GEORGE STREET - NIGHT (OLD SC 75B) 76 We see the mass of parents as they march intently down a dark city street. 76A EXT. ANGEL GROVE PARK - ERNIE'S - NIGHT (OLD SC 64) 76A Ernie's is packed with crazed kids and teenagers who are ripping the place apart. Bulk and Skull watch while gorging themselves on pizza. BULK There goes the neighborhood. SKULL A real shame. Suddenly Fred appears and shouts out. FRED EVERYBODY, LISTEN UP! The place falls silent. FRED You've been brainwashed! This Ivan is no Wizard. He's some kind of DEMON! KID #4 Shut up, squirt. KID #3 You can't talk that way about our leader. Enraged, they move in on Fred. FRED You gotta believe me -- he's EVIL! The crowd gets angrier. They move closer... Fred gulps with fear... glancing around for help, he notices a HOSE. He lunges for it, cranks on the water, and TURNS IT ON THE CROWD! SPLASH! They get SPRAYED DOWN! Suddenly -- they stop in their tracks, slowly blinking, confused. The spell is broken. We hear: "What's going on ?!" "What am I doing here?!", etc. FRED Listen to me! Our parents are in danger! If we don't help them they're going to be killed! He hurries off. A few follow him, then a few more... until pretty soon everybody joins him. Bulk and Skull share a look. SKULL What about the pizza? Bulk considers the dilemma. BULK We could take it with us. Skull nods, relieved. They gather up the pizza and move off after the others. 77 OMITTED 77 78 INT. COMMAND CENTER - NIGHT 78 The Rangers MATERIALIZE in the Command Center with their helmets off. AISHA ALPHA?! Alpha approaches, speaks in an anguished voice. ALPHA 5 Rangers... I'm afraid you're too late. AISHA What?! ALPHA 5 Zordon... he's gone. The Rangers are too stunned to speak. They approach Zordon's lifeless form looking absolutely devastated. KIMBERLY ... This can't be... They stare at Zordon with gut-wrenching expressions. They're utterly defeated. Eventually, Tommy looks to the others and speaks in a fervent voice. TOMMY "To those who possess the Great Power... all things are possible." The kids gradually exchange zealous looks. They form a circle around Zordon and interlock hands. They close their eyes, bow their heads... After a long moment, a SHIMMERING ENERGY BEGINS TO FLOW DOWN FROM THE RANGERS, INTO ZORDON'S ASTRAL FORM. Zordon grows BRIGHTER and BRIGHTER and then there's a DAZZLING, STROBOSCOPIC EXPLOSION. When the LIGHT FADES WE SEE THE COMMAND CENTER BACK IN ITS ORIGINAL, PRISTINE FORM. Zordon's youthful face once again looks down from within his pillar of light, his eyes filled with a fierce pride. RANGERS ZORDON!! ZORDON Welcome back, kids. ADAM It's good to be back. Alpha jumps up and down like a child. ALPHA 5 HE'S ALIVE! HE'S ALIVE! KIMBERLY We thought you... ZORDON It's good to see you again, too. Alpha sees the Ecto-Morphicon machines on the VIEWING GLOBE.

CITY STREETS 80 The Rangers watch as Hornitor and Scorpitron come THUNDERING down the street toward them. KIMBERLY What're THOSE?! We hear Alpha on Tommy's wrist communicator. ALPHA 5 (V. 0.)

MONORAIL STATION - NIGHT (OLD SC 69) 81A Fred, Bulk and Skull watch a sleek monorail pulling in. Skull talks with a mouth full of pizza. SKULL Look, kid, I don't think you realize who you're dealing with. FRED I don't think he realizes who HE'S dealing with. The train glides to a complete stop and the doors SLIDE OPEN . FRED EVERYBODY ON BOARD! The youngsters pile through the doors, quickly filling up the entire monorail. 81B EXT. CITY STREET 81B The parents round a corner, advance down the street like machines. 82 EXT. THE ECTO-MORPHICON MACHINES 82 ATTACK WITH A RELENTLESS FEROCITY. There's all kinds of CRASHING and BASHING and EXPLOSIONS! There's a BLAM, BLAM, BLAM as Scorpitron REPEATEDLY FIRES his cannon arm at the Bear Zord, who in turn DEFLECTS THE VOLLEYS. Hornitor shoots a BLAST from it's stinger, the Crane Zord dodges the FIERY ERUPTION. KIMBERLY (V. O.) Nice try, Pinhead! Scorpitron repeatedly KICKS at the Frog Zord with it's BLADED FEET, SENDING UP OSCILLATORY DISCHARGES, at the same time SLASHING WITH IT'S LETHAL CLAWS. ADAM (V. O.) Somebody back me up, here! Hornitor BORES IT'S DRILL ARM INTO THE APE ZORD, SENDING EXPLOSIONS OF SPARKS. ROCKY (V. O.) These things are FEROCIOUS! The Bear Zord CHARGES HORNITOR and the two Mastodons go CRASHING BACKWARD. AISHA (V.O.) The bear kicks butt! Hornitor SEARS the Wolf Zord with it's needle-nose. In retaliation, the Wolf Zord POUNCES, KNOCKING HORNITOR INTO THE STREET. Now the Falcon Zord SWOOPS THROUGH THE AIR. TOMMY (V.O.) Heads up! He FIRES BOOSTER ROCKETS, STRAFING SCORPITRON WITH AN INTENSE FUSILLADE. Hornitor gets back up -- the Ape Zord SWINGS DOWN FROM BILLBOARD, RAMS HIM FEET FIRST, SENDS HIM CATAPULTING BACK. ROCKY (V.O.) Hope you've got a good mechanic. Scorpitron FIRES A VOLLEY at the Frog Zord -- the Zord BOUNDS THROUGH THE AIR, AVOIDING THE BLAST, COMES CRASHING DOW ON TOP OF SCORPITRON. The Falcon Zord swoops in and blasts Scorpitron who BLOWS UP INTO A BILLION FLAMING PARTICLES! KIMBERLY (V.O.) WE GOT HIM!! IVAN (outraged) These brats are ruining EVERYTHING! Mordant and Goldar watch popeyed as IVAN'S BODY STRETCHES OUT LIKE A HUGE PIECE OF GUM. He STRETCHES and STRETCHES until his head BURSTS THROUGH THE STOMACH OF SCORPITRON. We hear a resounding SNAP AS IVAN'S FEET ARE RELEASED FROM THE ROOFTOP AND HIS ENTIRE BEING SPURTS INSIDE THE GIANT'S BELLY. Now there's all sorts of GURGLING and SLURPING sounds as the monster's face SHAPE-SHIFTS INTO IVAN'S FACE! He grins, revealing his silver tooth. IVAN Let's TANGO! TOMMY (V.O.)
