‘Power Rangers’ Movie Version of Goldar Will Melt Your Brain (Photo)

Rita Repulsa’s trusted alien henchman undergoes a significant transformation

The new “Power Rangers” movie is offering a fresh take on a number of the classic characters and villain Goldar is no exception.

In a commercial for the new Megazord toy released by Saban, fans got a first look at how Rita Repulsa’s No. 1 henchman will look in the new film and it is…interesting.

Previously, Goldar (pictured above) was a gargoyle-type beast covered in gold armor. Here’s what Goldar will look like now:

It looks like someone took an old Goldar action figure and put it through a few popcorn cycles on a microwave. Of course, this is not the only shocking twist on the look of an old character.

The first photo of robot Alpha-5 did away with the classic image of the faithful helper to Zordon and instead made it look incredibly alien.

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.

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.

“Power Rangers” is scheduled to premiere in theaters on March 24.
