Bryan Cranston Opens Up About Playing Zordon in POWER RANGERS
In his first interview since landing the part of Zordon in the upcoming Power Rangers, Bryan Cranston talks about the film and shares a couple of new details. Casting Cranston was the best thing to happen to this film because he brings huge credence and confidence to the project.
While talking to Entertainment Tonight, Cranston, who provided some voice work on the original series, shared his excitement for playing the part and revealed a few details on his version of Zordon and the role he plays in the lives of the Power Rangers.
"Yes, it's motion capture and it's a lot of CGI-work. The tenant of that storyline is that this a real person who is trapped in this etherworld and it becomes this in-the-wall so to speak of [the command center], 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. So, it's exciting."
I can’t wait to see Cranston as Zordon. I hope he ends up having a decent sized role in the movie, but we’ll probably only get about five to ten minutes of Zordon in the film, if that.
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.
Power Rangers comes out on March 24th, 2017.
