Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer earlier stated his confidence and excitement in the upcoming film. “We are really, really excited about the ‘Power Rangers’ movie. We could see doing five or six or seven, he said.
He also told Variety about the possibility of having multiple sequels later on while revealing the costume reboot for the lead characters. Feltheimer explained that these new suits consisted translucent armor crystallizing around the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ bodies.
Production designer Andew Menzies told Entertainment Weekly how tricky it was to design the costumes. “It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. Our is an alien costume that grows, that’s not man-made,” he cited.
“You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans,” Menzies added.
“It’s the coolest costume ever. I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years,” Becky G shared.
In addition, Rita Repulsa will be their new villain witch. Elizabeth Banks will play as the evil witch in Power Rangers movie 2017.
In the meantime, the entire casts and crew are filming in British Columbia, Canada for the movie.
