Who doesn’t love the POWER RANGERS? If you are a parent who has a child that was born in the 90’s, chances are, that kid watched the POWER RANGERS like he/she ate food.
Conversationalists around the VOF water cooler are discussing the news reported from Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, who recently said he imagines the studio can make up to six new POWER RANGERS films following next year’s revival.
The new film, slated for a March 2017 release, will follow five normal high school students as they react to an impending alien invasion. In response to the global threat, they discover something powerful within themselves that might be able to save them all.
Earlier this month, there was some conversation regarding the new Power Rangers story — which will star singer Becky G as the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger and RJ Cycler as the Blue Ranger — saying their new uniforms will express “metamorphosis.”
“These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit,” he said at the time.
Production designer Andrew Menzies added the new suits will “grow” instead of being made or worn. “You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans,” he is quoted as saying.
Power Rangers is currently in production in Vancouver.
