Go go Power Rangers! If you all knew how hard I was cheesing right now you’d probably tell me that my cheeks were going to burst but in this moment, I don’t even care. Saban and Lionsgate just released a brand new teaser trailer for the new ‘Power Rangers film set to hit theaters in 2017.
With the way superhero films and television shows have been dominating the industry as of lately, it’s actually no surprise that we get this new treat. The film is a reboot and re-imagining of the Power Rangers franchise, and the first film since Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, featuring most of the main characters of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers portrayed by a new cast.
The premise of the film is short and sweet, the same as every other Power Rangers movie installment but this rendition looks way more realistic than the kid-friendly version we grew up on. The description given for the film reads “Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens 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 they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.”
In case you were wondering, yes that is singer and actress Becky G in the role of Trini Tran, the Yellow Ranger (which has always been my favorite).
Sound off below and let me know if you’re rolling with me to the movie theaters. If y’all want to make this a group event, we can head to Party City now to grab our costumes and be everybody’s 2017 #SquadGoals!
