The Power Rangers look ready for battle in a new close up shot from the upcoming movie that showcases the team’s new costumes.
Fans of the original series will remember that the Rangers start off as a normal group of teens from the town of Angel Grove before being recruited into an interstellar war that has been raging for years. With the help of their new powers, they must overcome their own issues to save the world from an evil interstellar witch and her henchmen.
The team of multi-colored Power Rangers consists mostly of relative newcomers: singer Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly and R.J. Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy.
Liongate’s big-budget production is taking on a much edgier tone than the original television series, which has been reflected in the film’s costumes, initially previewed for fans in early May. Costume designers have thrown away the spandex in favor of harder-looking armored suits.
“Power Rangers” is set for a March 24, 2017 release.
