As we know by now the power rangers are returning for a movie in 2017, fans of these guys and girls in colourful suits are already excited for their long time awaited comeback to the big screen. The film will follow the storyline of the old 90s television series but with a modern twist.
The five rangers Billy, Trinity, Jason, Kimberly and Zack will work together to save earth from Rita Repulsa. Rita is an evil Alien who wants to destroy planet earth. Although the five look like ordinary high school students, they have awesome and unique abilities that can defeat the her as long as they work together as a team, but this is not going to be an easy job for the colourful rangers, because they are each having their own individual struggles as teenagers. Before they can save the planet they need to work out their issues first.
Recent reports reveal that today’s young generation can relate to the story and the teens struggles. The 2017 reboot will have a general modern setting, also big issues like cyberbullying and insecurities will be discussed in the film.
Some of the ranger’s fans got a little worried that sex and drugs might make an appearance in the upcoming movie, but Saban and Lionsgate assured them that they will be extremely careful with the theme.
Let’s hope they are, as kids are going to want to see this movie and parents may cause a shit storm if things like that are featured.
Meanwhile, recent update show Rita Repulsa played by Elizabeth Banks trapped inside an ice prison, HNGN reports she will later find her way out to accomplish her evil plans and fight against those who get in her way.
