The Green Power Ranger, who does not appear in the new reboot, was one of the more popular characters in the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series. The character of Tommy Oliver was portrayed in the TV series by Jason David Frank, who has a cameo in the new movie, fighting alongside the Pink Ranger in the final battle scene.
In the TV series, The Green Power Ranger started as a high school student who became a servant for Rita Repulsa (she was the original Green Ranger, millions of years ago, before turning bad). Enchanted by Rita, he is ordered to destroy the other Power Rangers, but eventually joins them, and in Season 2, becomes the White Power Ranger.
While Tommy Oliver, the Green Power Ranger, is missing from the latest Power Rangers movie, the character is mentioned during the movie’s post credits scene. In the scene, the five Power Rangers, who just finished saving the world, are in school detention. The teacher supervising the detention is calling out the names of the students who should be present – and he stops when he reaches the name Tommy Oliver. The teacher calls out the name several times, but there’s no response.
