After a few weeks of inactivity, fresh news as arisen regarding what SABAN’S POWER RANGERS will entail. Lionsgate have recently revealed the synopsis for their upcoming film, which you can read 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 threats. 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.
Interestingly, the synopsis sounds almost note-for-note the same as that as MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS, of which SABAN’S POWER RANGERS is based on. Whilst this synopsis reveal may be as anticlimactic as the film’s title reveal last year, fans can still revel in slowly piecing together the puzzle that stands as yet another symptom of today’s reboot culture in film.
SABAN’S POWER RANGERS stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa.
Directed by Dean Israelite and written by John Gatins, Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazma, SABAN’S POWER RANGERS will be released on March the 24th 2017.
