It takes a highly pumped ego to slap on a name to a well known property like Power Rangers, but the synopsis given to us for Saban’s Power Rangers.
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.
I don’t think anyone who knows Power Rangers are surprised by the synopsis of the film. The real surprise will come once we see the trailer or some set photos of the cast and crew in action and a presentation of the scale of this intriguing new film.
The changes likely lamented from the original source material have it going in a direction that will bring a more “serious” tone to the many different personalities of the Rangers themselves as well as include their teenage drama in a more “realistic” fashion, but that is yet to be determined.
