‘Power Rangers’: First Look at Cast in Costume

The first look at the new “Power Rangers” cast in full alien-combating attire has finally arrived.

“The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis,” “Power Rangers” director Dean Israelite told EW. “These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.”

Like the original 90s TV series and subsequent spinoffs, the “Power Rangers” revival — set for a 2017 release — will follow a band of misfit teenagers who harness their transformative superhero abilities to fight evil alien forces like Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa.

Earlier this year, Israelite commented on the diversity of the modern-day “Power Rangers” crew, stating that he wanted to maintain the diversity of the original TV series while avoiding race-driven color assignments.

“From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process,” he said. “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.”
