The Green Ranger is already being teased for the Power Rangers sequel
Although Lionsgate‘s new big screen take on Saban‘s Power Rangers won’t hit theaters until tomorrow, the studio is already teasing a familiar face for the tentative sequel. The below Green Ranger motion poster was just posted to the franchise’s official feed!
On the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, the Green Ranger was the alternate identity of Tommy Oliver (played by Jason David Frank). Throughout the franchise’s run, Oliver has returned as a number of different rangers, including the White Ranger, the Red Ranger and, most recently, the Black Ranger. While Oliver doesn’t appear in the new film, Green Ranger fans would be wise to stay in their seats during the new movie’s end credits.
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, Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect, The Hunger Games) as the villainous Rita Repulsa, Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) voicing Alpha 5 and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Godzilla) as Zordon.
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).
