A new set of teaser posters has been revealed through MTV’s snapchat and other media sites this morning for Lionsgate’s upcoming Saban’s Power Rangers Movie. These posters will be at San Diego Comic Con 2016.
We also dissect the new Power Rangers Ninja Steel logo and synopsis, discuss the future of the franchise and how the success (or failure) of the new movie might affect the tv show, Legacy figure news, Megaforce and Super Megaforce DVD sets, OhRanger from Shout!Factory, Legacy Helmet and Ninja Megazord news, and Power Morphicon guest announcements.
Finally, in our Ranger Nation Asks segment, a listener asks us to give our opinion on the state of Power Rangers fan films and we read your reactions to the movie suit reveal.
Entertainment Weekly released the first look image of the movie suits for Saban’s Power Rangers releasing next year.
The outfits are visual throwbacks to the franchise’s long-running mythology. “The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis,” director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) says. “These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.”
The spandex-free makeover also helps set the film apart from other big-screen franchises. “It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume,” production designer Andrew Menzies (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) admits. “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.”
Today, Lionsgate sent Power Force members a hi-res file for the new movie’s logo. Click above to download.
