Built on the popular children's action franchise, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie features a team of super powered youths engaged in a battle of good and evil. Using martial arts, magic, and technology, the Rangers square off against the space pirate Divatox, who intends to free her betrothed from his prison and conquer the universe. The movie follows the Rangers trying to find the only being who can open the prison, a wizard named Larigot, before Divatox finds him.
Unlike the previous installment in the Power Rangers movie franchise, this film is meant to serve as a bridge between seasons of the television show. This gives the movie a chance to draw on old characters for continuity purposes, but the excess characters are not explained thoroughly when viewed as a stand alone work. Elements like these would indicate that Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie is meant to be viewed as part of the greater Power Rangers franchise, not as an introduction to the concept.
