Since Lionsgate announced the production of Power Rangers movie for 2017, fans throughout the world have been critical about the reboot. Although it was primarily PG-13 centric, the upcoming movie could possibly appeal to the ’90s fans as well as the current generation.
Since its last release, the movie is making its comeback after twenty years. Fortunately, the upcoming Power Rangers movie will be sticking to the original plot. As of now, it has been confirmed that the story will set off with the origin — our heroes as classic high schoolers.
According to Movie Pilot, cast were already confirmed. Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G. and Dacre Montgomery will be playing their roles as Black Ranger, Pink Ranger, Blue Ranger, Yellow Ranger and Red Ranger. But fans are puzzled if Green Ranger will be included in the cast.
Green Ranger is considered as one of the best characters since his appearance in the original TV series. The hero is known for his dark traits, as he once sided with Rita Repulsa and fought against the Power Rangers.
While it’s possible that the studio decide to tweak certain parts of the story, a theory posted by a Reddit user suggests the Green Ranger will be an important secret character in the movie. Reddit user The_AtomBomb suggests that Rita is in fact the Green Rangers. It was based on the similarities of her suit to the Green Ranger. She could have turned to the other side but decided to keep the outfit.
In other news, Bryan Cranston recently shared more details on his role as Zordon in Power Rangers. The actor interacted with Entertainment Tonight and spoke about his character, sharing technical and backstory details.
Bryan Cranston confirmed that Zordon will be portrayed in the movie through “motion capture” and said it would involve “a lot of CGI-work.” He also revealed new details about Zordon’s story.
“He still has a heart and mind, but an agenda that he’s got to get these five Power Rangers to defend the earth or else everyone they know will be killed,” he said.
Power Rangers movie, which will be directed by Dean Israelite and produced by Lionsgate, will hit theaters on March 24, 2017.
