Jason David Frank in "Junior Defenders" (1997)

As his first tenure as a Power Ranger was winding down in 1997, Jason David Frank (Tommy, MMPR-Turbo, Dino Thunder) donned a different set of tights in the indie flick "Junior Defenders." Originally titled "Groupies," the film tells the story of a man who kidnaps the four stars of his favorite childhood television show (Junior Defenders) and takes them to Hollywood, forcing them to shoot a new episode of the series, after the show was cancelled on a cliffhanger fifteen years before. Frank appears in the last half hour of the film. His character, ironically also named Tommy, is the last member of the Junior Defenders cast to be abducted. The film was released for the first time on DVD in 2007, ten years after it was produced.

"Junior Defenders" is available on DVD
