Ah! After what felt like 10,000 years, several of the original Power Rangers have reunited to save the world, treating fans to plenty of nostalgic callbacks and fun reveals along the way.

Now streaming on Netflix, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Once & Always finds Billy (David Yost) and Zack (Walter Jones) building a new-ish team of Rangers to take on Rita Repulsa (voiced once again by Barbara Goodson), following the tragic death of Yellow Ranger Trini (Thuy Trang) at Rita’s now-robotic hand.

The painful loss of Trini, whose portrayer died in 2001 car accident, looms large in Once & Always, as Trini’s daughter Minh (Charlie Kersh) rises up to take her mother’s place as the new Yellow Ranger. Meanwhile, Rocky (Steve Cardenas) and Kat (Catherine Sutherland) rejoin the team to fill the void left by Jason and Kimberly, who are among the many Rangers kidnapped to power Rita’s time-traveling device. Though no longer in Ranger form, Karan Ashley and Johnny Yong Bosch also return as Aisha and Adam, respectively.

At a breezy 55 minutes, Once & Always is a delightfully cheesy, totally satisfying tribute to the roots of this iconic franchise, with locations like the Command Center, the Bandora Palace and Ernie’s Juice Bar lovingly recreated. A lot of care appears to have gone into getting this right for the fans, and everyone involved is clearly having a blast. And don’t even try to act like you didn’t get chills watching those Zords back in action.
