Goldar Toy for the Power Rangers movie revealed
Once again a reveal for Lionsgate’s upcoming Power Rangers movie has been revealed via a toy, but now you can get a glimpse of how Goldar will appear in the film thanks to the commercial below. As you’ll see in the photo above, the film takes a pretty radical departure from how the character appeared in the original series, though it’s taking his name to heart for the new design.
In additional Power Rangers news, Boom! Studios has announced (via IGN) a graphic novel sequel to the film that they will release just days after it debuts in theaters. “Power Rangers Aftershock” will be released March 29 from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Lucas Werneck. You can check out the two covers for it below.
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.
The Power Rangers cast includes Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, with Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live) voicing Alpha 5, Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” Godzilla) as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.
Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island, Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), and Max Landis (Chronicle). Producers are Power Rangers creator Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner franchise).
Power Rangers will be released in theaters on March 24, 2017.
