With us having previously been given our first glimpse of Elizabeth Banks as the villainous Rita Repulsa, we’ve now gotten our first look at the suited-up titular team from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot.
Entertainment Weekly secured the ‘first look’, and production designer Andrew Menzies told the outlet, “Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”
Alien costumes? Well that’s certainly going to split opinion…
Anyway, here’s the first look at the new Power Rangers team in their full gear. We’ll let you make your own mind up.
As for the team, they’re made up of Becky G as Trini/Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack/Black Ranger, Dace Montgomery as Jason/Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly/Pink Ranger, and RJ Cyler as Billy/Blue Ranger.
The official word on Power Rangers reads:
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids 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 that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
To be directed by Project Almanac’s Dean Israelite, Power Rangers is currently set for a March 24th, 2017 release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
