‘Power Rangers’ Deleted Scene Features Romantic Subplot

Power Rangers Movie

While Power Rangers might have had a disappointing overall run at the box office, the film has garnered something of a cult following since its release, and Saban as a company hasn’t given up on the possibility of a sequel due to strong merchandise sales. To entice old and new fans to the home video release of the film, a few deleted scenes will be included on the Blu-Ray, including a scene showing a romantic storyline between two of the characters.

CinemaBlend has released a short clip showing a more intimate moment between Jason Scott and Kimberly Hart after she reveals why she ended up in detention, which can be seen on their website. The duo had a degree of romantic subtext in the actual movie itself, so it’s unsurprising that a scene that exploring what their romance really meant was initially a part of the movie. Test audiences didn’t like the kiss as it deviated from the source material, which had Kimberly get into a relationship with Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger (who doesn’t appear in the movie, but is teased in a post-credits scene). Given that the cast are really interested in Tommy Oliver being a girl in the potential sequel, it’s understandable that they moved the relationship over to a romance between Kimberly and Jason instead.

Power Rangers is directed by Dean Israelite and stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Scott (Red Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Becky G as Trini (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack (Black Ranger), Bill Hader as Alpha 5, Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. The film will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on June 27, 2017 and on Digital HD tomorrow. Stay tuned for more updates!
