The new Power Rangers trailer offered fans a glimpse of Zordon and several villains that the superheroes will fight against. It appears these protagonists have major threats in their hands.
Lionsgate has released the second teaser for the reboot, two months before its official premiere. The film studio unveiled the first Power Rangers trailer in October.
Zordon (Bryan Cranston) and Alpha 5 (Bill Hader) appears in the teaser. It also showed how Red Ranger Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Blue Ranger Billy (RJ Cyler), Yellow Ranger Trini (Becky G), Black Ranger Zack (Ludi Lin), and Pink Ranger Kimberly (Naomi Scott) got their powers. The group then embarks on a mission to stop Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and her minions from destroying their town.
The official synopsis suggests the superheroes will face their respective real-life issues before they battle some extra terrestrial creatures. It reads as 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 threat. 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.”
What We Know About Power Rangers Reboot So Far
The original TV show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, took inspiration from the Japanese series, Super Senta. The upcoming movie is the third reboot for the Saban franchise.
The first movie, titled Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, debuted in 1995. Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie followed two years later.
Both Zordon and Rita Repulsa appeared in the first two movies. Zordon was played by Nicholas Bell in the first movie and Winston Richard in the second. Julia Cortez and Carla Perez played the role of Rita in first and the second film, respectively.
In the ’90s TV show, Zordon was trapped in a time warp. According to Entertainment Tonight, Zordon’s backstory could further unravel in the new film. In the Power Rangers trailer, Zordon was seen mentoring the rangers via his giant holographic face on the wall.
Meanwhile, Rita will send off an enormous monster, Goldar, to fight the teen rangers. She will also summon an army of large stone fighters to destroy Angel Grove.
