Thanks to Nerdist we've learned some new details regarding the upcoming Power Rangers movie. It was confirmed in a video they released that Alpha 5 and the Dinozords will appear in the movie! How freakin' cool is that?!
For those of you who need a refresher, Alpha 5 is Zordon's annoying saucer robot assistant who is best known for his cry of "Aye-yi-yi-yi-yi!" It will be interesting to see how the character is implemented into this film because it's going to have a darker, more serious tone than the original series.
As for the Dinozords, they were the first zords used by the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. The rangers called on them whenever Rita Repulsa grew her monsters into giants after the team of heroes beat them in their normal size. The Zord lineup will likely include the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Mastodon, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, and a Saber-Toothed Tiger.
The more that I learn about this film, the more excited I get about seeing the movie. I can't wait to watch a trailer for it, so we can see what exactly we're in for. For more information on the movie click here.
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.
The Rangers include Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger. Elizabeth Banks also stars in the movie as the main villain Rita Repulsa, and Bryan Cranston is playing Zordon.
The Power Rangers will jump into action when the movie is released on March 24th, 2017.
