P O W E R R A N G E R S[Source: blastr.com] The studio has released the first official shot of the new costumes, showcasing the “translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies,” as opposed to the usual spandex and plastic from the original series. It’s certainly a bold design choice, though they do make a point to keep some homages to the original designs. The helmets are somewhat similar to the classic suits, and hey, they did keep the colors.
“The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis,” director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) told Entertainment Weekly. “These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.”
The big-screen reboot stars 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 RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy. Elizabeth Banks is also attached to play main villain Rita Repulsa.
