‘Power Rangers’ Director On The Journey To Suiting Up

The following article contains some spoilers from Power Rangers.

Power Rangers

If you’ve already seen Power Rangers then you know that the five teens didn’t morph into their suits right away. In fact, it took quite awhile for them to do so.

Speaking with Cinema Blend, director Dean Israelite discussed the reasoning behind that decision.

There’s always a kind of balance, especially in a movie like this where, you know, we kind of had to tell five origin stories in one movie and it was a challenge. It was something that we felt was important because it was an opportunity to tell stories of teenagers that hopefully kind of reflects 2017. We wanted teenagers to be able to see themselves in the movie and we thought that was kind of important, and also it’s like we live in a world with so many flying capes and whatever that I think, for my tastes, I wanted the personal stories to invest us before it became really about heroic maneuvers, but yeah it was a challenge.

With the focus being on the Power Rangers’ origin and having them be themselves first before they were to become heroes, the film took its time before they suited up. This either pleased or displeased fans, depending on how fond you are of the Power Rangers taking their place and morphing.

Saban’s Power Rangers 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 discoverer they are the only ones who 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.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, RJ Cyler as the Blue Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, and Becky G. as the Yellow Ranger. The cast also includes Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks, and Bill Hader.

Power Rangers is now out in theaters.
