Over the past few months, we have been teased by the official confirmation, as well as screenshots and cast reveals for the upcoming Power Rangers movie. Rebooting the series with a more mature tone, and a new lineup, I feel like a young teenager all over again.
“Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.”
The movie stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, with Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks.
Power Rangers will be an origin story, of how the Rangers became friends and in turn, discovered their powers. How much of the movie will be the origin story before they become Rangers is unclear, and this teaser trailer shows little to no Power Rangers action. We know that Rita Repulsa will feature as the antagonist, who you can see in the screenshot below, but will Saban and Lionsgate be able to squeeze in enough story and action in under two hours?
Power Rangers will release in the US in March of 2017. Aye aye aye aye aye!
