Power Rangers is getting a movie reboot two decades after it the first film adaptation of the TV hit in 1995.
Collider provides the juicy details of the characters that fans will soon watch in theaters.
Jason is a 17-year-old quarterback that everyone adores until he met an accident that injured his knees. He will become a teen that needs redemption and will then lead a group of teens with distinct personalities to find who they truly are.
Kimberly, 17 years old, used to be a popular girl. She shows off an edgy attitude to mask a deep secret that makes her feel profoundly vulnerable, Collider wrote.
Trini, 17, is extremely bright but a loner. She is always “the new girl” to any school because of her parents’ work, requiring them to move every time.
Billy is also 17 years old. He is smart but lacks social skills. Showing his emotions and dealing with his OCD is a challenge for him.
Finally, 17-year-old Zack, who has all the confidence and charm of a teen. Collider noted “Zack advertises everything about himself, except the truth that he lives in a trailer park with his single mom.” This makes him feel inferior to his peers.
Tech Times said the five Power Rangers are basically all closely adapted to the original television characters but the movie might go further than the old TV series.
“Project Almanac’s” Dean Israelite is set to direct the reboot of “Power Rangers.” Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (The Last Witch Hunter) will write the early draft of the script. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the duo behind “X-Men: First Class,” develop a “mature but still playful” version of it, Collider added.
The “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” was one of the most beloved television superheroes of the 90s. It was created by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban.
Lionsgate and Saban Entertainment’s “Power Rangers” is due in theaters January 13, 2017.
