First Official Cast Pic Of The Movie Power Rangers

Lionsgate has just released the first official group picture of the new movie Power Rangers – not in their fighting outfits, sadly, but it’ll do for now.


From left to right they are: RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Ludi Lin,Becky G and Dacre Montgomery as Billy (The Blue Ranger), Kimberly (The Pink Ranger), Zack (The Black Ranger), Trini (The Yellow Ranger) and Jason (The Red Ranger), respectively.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) says he wanted the film to reflect the lives of teens today. The new Power Rangers is a coming of age story for these “disenfranchised and disparate” high schoolers, who are not friends when the new story begins.

“From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process,” he adds. “We switched all of the races around, but we made sure that the essence of each of those characters are who they were in the original show, and this really will be an origin story of those characters.”

If they’d wanted to make it truly diverse, they could have made one of the guys the Pink Ranger.
