The official logo has been revealed for Power Rangers movie, and we have some details on two of the main characters that we’ll see in the movie.
This is going to be one adventurous fun movie and I as a fan cannot wait to have more details from the project.
This is what director of the film has to say to IGN when asked about his movie:
“I read the script and was really surprised by it and thought there was a really cool, contemporary, mature but still playful, buoyant and fun take on the material, and was updated in a really interesting way. It had this wonderful character that’s essential to going on a fantastic adventure. I was instantly drawn to it. I remember it as a kid. I grew up with it in South Africa. When I opened the script I had no idea how it was going to be updated, and I was really impressed by it. So I put a really big presentation together, because I needed to win the job. There were a lot of guys going out for it and saw the potential in it, so I put a really big presentation together and was lucky enough to get the job. We’re in sort of a soft pre-production right now, doing a lot of design work and reimagining the world. It’s really cool and exciting.”
The director also revealed they’re in the beginnings of casting for the film and shooting is set to start soon.
The movie has previously been described as a modern reinvention of the long-running franchise. The story of which follows “a group of ordinary high school kids find themselves infused with extraterrestrial powers and must harness those powers as a team to save the world.”
The main villains of the film will of course be Rita Repulsa, and thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we have this description of the film version of the character:
“A huntress. A striking, yet subtly alien-looking woman. She carries a metallic staff topped with a distinctive crescent shape. Advances with a soldier’s confidence, guided by some sort of compass… Her staff is actually a device of immense power. She points it at the ground. Heads emerge, built layer upon layer like 3-D printing, made from the earth itself… The staff’s technology grants her the ability to create humanoid figures, soulless and robotic.”
The report goes on to say that Rita will be introduced in the prologue of the film “which takes place during the cretaceous period, on the last day of the dinosaurs on Earth. Rita fights that period’s Power Rangers.”
The site then reveals that the Red Ranger is also fan favorite Zordon described as follows:
“Though alien, he looks like a man in his 50s. Sinewy and strong, as if carved from some root that refused to die. A being of integrity and iron will.”
Release Date January 13th, 2017.
