'Power Rangers' Starts Filming, Reveals Synopsis
< >
It's Morphin' Time! Sorry, but Lionsgate has just announced that the new Power Rangers movie has begun filming, and along with that cheery news they have also finally released the first official synopsis for the film. Not surprisingly, it sounds exactly like a Power Rangers movie:

Opening quote
"Saban's Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late."
Closing quote


See? Sounds like the Power Rangers. And not just any Power Rangers, but the classic Power Rangers of the '90s. And that shouldn't be too surprising, since everything we've heard about the movie so far, from the inclusion of the classic rangers to villain Rita Repulsa, has made it seem like the film will be an exercise in nostalgia made for fans of the mid-'90s TV show. We'll find out just how much like the old show it is when the film premieres on March 24, 2017.
