‘Power Rangers’ Suit Up In New Costumes

prangers

The Power Rangers have gone through a major suit upgrade. The outfits don’t appear to be anything like the original uniforms worn by the Rangers. The new suits appear to be high-tech and look like they are made out of extraterrestrial armor, which surrounds their bodies. A definite upgrade.

Director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) spoke out about the new costumes.

“The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis. These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.”

Production designer Andrew Menzies (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) admitted that it was a major challenge to update the outfits while staying true to the original characters.

“It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”

The new cast features Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy.

Becky G is a fan of the outfit already.

“It’s the coolest costume ever. I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years.”

Power Rangers hits theaters March 24th, 2017.

    I don’t know why but i feel like one person designed the body suits, and another one the helmets. Still, i’m liking the Blue, Yellow and Black rangers outfit.

    When I first saw this I immediately thought of the Iron Legion lol. But I dig it, I don’t know how they could have made the costumes cool and not corny but I guess this is one way.

    “Becky G is a fan of the outfit already.

    “It’s the coolest costume ever. I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years.”” I did not know she was in it. Why cast over rated annoying Disney Channel people?
