WATCH THIS: POWER RANGERS
#FLASHBACKFRIDAY: It’s morphin’ time! The Power Rangers are back, with a new twist! The new Power Rangers movie was released today, and has morphed from the original 90’s TV series. The movie takes place in a present day American high school, where 5 students that are not friends, discover some coins that change their life forever, by making them Power Rangers. While the Power Rangers have this in common, viewers will discover their differences are celebrated in this film.
Yellow Power Ranger Trini (Becky G) will be the first gay superhero on the big screen. A big budget film like this has never featured a gay superhero. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the original Blue Ranger, actor David Yost, left the 1990’s series because of humiliation he experienced while on the set regarding his sexual orientation. Today, he praises the film for stepping up to the plate for the LGBTQ community. Director Dean Israelite told The Hollywood Reporter, “The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
Power Rangers is in theatres now.
