The Power Rangers are back and better than ever.
“From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process,” Dean Israelite, the director of the new film, told Entertainment Weekly. “We switched all of the races around, but we made sure that the essence of each of those characters are who they were in the original show, and this really will be an origin story of those characters.”
The production team working on the film have promised they will give the new suits a new twist.
“We’ve really pushed ourselves to make them feel different from any other superhero costume that’s out there,” Israelite said. “One key that’s different to the Power Ranger suits is that they’re not really suits that people get into. They’re suits that morph onto our kids, so they already have this almost metaphysical quality to them.”
