Some new rumors cropped up about the Power Rangers Reboot movie and they suggest it’s going to be campy, over-the-top and possibly even quite dark. Sound familiar?
The description sure sounds a lot like the fan film created some time ago — you can see it here.
How Do You Know This?
Heroic Hollywood claims to have gotten their hands on some leaked descriptions of characters from the film. These descriptions are what reveal the tone.
Remember a certain villain named Rita Repulsa? The first description is about her:
A huntress. A striking, yet subtly alien-looking woman. She carries a metallic staff topped with a distinctive crescent shape. Advances with a soldier’s confidence, guided by some sort of compass… Her staff is actually a device of immense power. She points it at the ground. Heads emerge, built layer upon layer like 3-D printing, made from the earth itself… The staff’s technology grants her the ability to create humanoid figures, soulless and robotic.
A description also surfaced about Zordon, the leader and mentor of the Power Rangers team.
Though alien, he looks like a man in his 50s. Sinewy and strong, as if carved from some root that refused to die. A being of integrity and iron will.
Of course, take this information with a grain of salt. It may be complete and utter nonsense and the movie characters might be worlds different.
If the descriptions are true, however, it seems like we’ll be getting a dark, slightly humorous film. That’s very much in line with the original series, which was a bit cheesy to say the least.
