It’s morphin’ time! Okay, maybe not. However, is time at least time for some new possible details regarding Dean Israelite’s upcoming Power Rangers. So, you know how we’ve all been calling this one a “reboot” of the franchise? It appears that may not be the case according to Collider’s sources. It seems that the upcoming film, which will shoot in Vancouver starting next January, will actually be set after the events of the current TV iteration of the franchise.
Also contained within the report was information regarding the film’s villain, who apparently will be an existing character from the earlier days of the franchise. In the film the new Rangers will take on Scorpina, a minion of the franchise’s original antagonist Rita Repulsa, who has amassed an army of her own. With this bit of information also comes information about the opening sequence which you can read below. WARNING: This does contain some mild spoilers.
I haven’t watched the Power Rangers since the original team debuted back in the 90’s, so it’s a bit hard for me to really comment on some of the details. However, I will admit that I’m slowly gaining more interest in the film as we learn more about it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
Power Rangers is set to hit theaters on January 13, 2017.
