Power Rangers First Look: The New Teenagers With Attitude
Power Rangers first look: the new teenagers with attitude, the Saturday morning TV staple Power Rangers (née Mighty Morphin) is coming to theaters in 2017 with a big-screen revival that will introduce a new version of the classic line-up of five alien-blasting teens.
EW has your first look at pop star Becky G, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin, and Dacre Montgomery as Trini, Billy, Kimberly, Zack, and Jason, respectively.
The modern setting was also taken into account during the casting process. Though many of the characters have had their races swapped, the cast retains the original’s diversity—while getting rid of the more race-based color assignments. This, according to Israelite, was a conscious choice to maintain what the original meant for fans around the world.
Power Rangers first look: the new teenagers with attitude will truly start from the beginning, before these five teens became friends. As the story progresses, they’ll come into their powers and face their biggest villain, Rita Repulsa, played by the infectious Elizabeth Banks.
And the Rangers will need those suits if they’re going to stand a chance against Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa, who from the sounds of it, lives up to her insane legacy.
As far as the iconic costumes are concerned, Israelite told them that they will be easily recognizable, but also have a “really modern, edgy, badass, aspirational quality” look to them.
My only question. Will Tommy and Zordon get introduced in this reboot? No word on those two characters yet, but we’re sure more details will roll out sooner than later with this new Power Rangers first look: the new teenagers with attitude.
