Ever since the most recent Power Rangers film was announced, fans couldn’t wait to see what the production team would do with the iconic Zords with a massive budget. Now that the film is out, many believe that the Zords were one of the film’s best highlights. A month after the film’s release, concept art for the film has slowly begun to pour out, giving us tons of insight into how the film was made.
The case is different with the concept art for Zack’s Zord, which was created by Mauricio Ruiz . The Zord features 6 legs and is modeled after an icy, black elephant. The concept art showcases Zack’s Zord in a variety of positions and shows it charging as well. Additionally, it shows the Zord’s hovercraft exploration mode. You can check out the concept art below!
Director Dean Israelite also commented on why Zack’s Zord has so many legs when he spoke to Collider.
“And the mastodon is so big that we realized that with added legs it would just move better in a CG environment, and we’d be able to make it a more nimble machine. So it felt kind of like practical; if you were an alien creating this machine, you would want those added limbs.”
Directed by Dean Israelite, the film stars Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Banks.
The story follows five ordinary teens 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 they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
