Jason David Frank Shares New Images of His Full Suit for LEGEND OF THE WHITE DRAGON!

By: John M Jerva

A few days ago, I shared the news that martial arts icon Mark Dacascos has joined the cast of Bat In The Sun’s Legend of the White Dragon which features former Power Rangers Jason David Frank and Jason Faunt. The play here is that it’s an adult take of that type of universe although it’s a different entity and now Frank has shared some official images of himself in full White Dragon mode. Check him out below!

The White Dragon, Erik Reed, has returned home to Virtuo City 3 years later after being defeated in a colossal battle against the ancient overlord, Ashtagor. The crystal he used to become the White Dragon was broken in two as a result of the epic battle, both pieces were subsequently lost. Being blamed for the destruction and collateral lives lost, his identity was outed after the battle thus making him a fugitive from the law.

We now follow Erik on his journey as he teams up with treasure hunters from the past who help him reclaim his power as the White Dragon. Once reunited with his powers, he and his team are now ready to battle a new threat, Dragon Prime, who seeks revenge against the White Dragon. Erik must now try and defeat Dragon Prime in order to get one step closer to clearing his name and being able to protect his family from an ancient evil that still lurks in the darkness… Ashtagor.

The pictures come courtesy of Comic Book.com and Frank spoke in the article about the adult nature of the project and what fans can expect.

“The audience, I think, is going to really relate to Erik Reed because he’s completely different opposite than Tommy Oliver,” Frank said. “And I think if they can imagine what my… It has no relation at all, but I’m saying as far as my audience, it’s a deeper, older, I wouldn’t say version of Tommy Oliver at all. It’s a completely different character. But what they’re going to see is Jason David Frank in a more mature role, meaning that he’s… I can finally express on television, that’s not for kids, nothing that’s PG-13.”

It’s also stated that Frank will be using more brutal forms of empty handed combat like Muay Thai and that he “kept that a little bit different for the audience versus a lot of flashy stuff that you see in regular karate movies or Power Rangers and stuff like that.”

Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce) and Frank’s own daughter Jenna Frank also star in the feature film. Bat in the Sun creators Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke are helming the pic. The film is currently in production.

Legend of the White Dragon is another product that saw a successful crowd finding campaign and it promises to bolster some pretty impressive action and martial arts set pieces. With the talent involved, this one is now high on my list of must see future films. 

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more on the project as we are your destination for everything action!
