That's part two of the film trilogy.

[up]well this is...different. I wonder if this means Kim will be wearing her Punk attire. [lol]

Ok, who let Light Yagami in here?

It sounds like a natural extension of the original character archetypes. Jason is the all-star athlete, Kimberly the popular girl, Billy the awkward kid, Trini the new girl, Zach the life of the party.

Everyone always seems to forget there have been feature films before

[up]I don't think anyone is. The title says original feature film, as opposed to the previous movies, which were all parts of the previous TV shows. (Or the first one was supposed to be, at least, but it's non-canon).

Yeah, the previous films were natural extensions of the TV show and didn't really bother with character introductions. That's one reason behind the Critical Dissonance. Having an original film with actual introductions to the heroes and villains will be something the franchise hasn't ever done before.

Well, I'd say they've made decent decisions when it comes to the racial make up of the cast. Making the Black Ranger Asian and the Blue Ranger African-American keeps the mix about what it was, but strips away some of the Unfortunate Implications.

I actually wish they could have made the Pink Ranger a male.

We aren't ready yet?

All that's left is the Yellow Ranger, which would be interesting because to keep the same racial make-up she would have to be white, and I can't think of any season that had two white female rangers. Maybe she'll be Hispanic, as in the original pilot.

Or she'll be black, like Aisha Campbell.

She could still be Asian. For all the jokes about the Unfortunate Implications there were at least one or two black actors in the running for Zack's part, iirc. It just seems that the other guy won out.

So in theory we could still end up with an Asian actress as Trini.

Becky Gomez is our yellow ranger. The current news is they're all new characters after the last rewrite.

I like how the comments section has people debate on the racial make-up of the cast.

Looks like I called it, a Latina for the yellow ranger.

And contrary to the previous reports it is indeed a reboot and they are playing new versions of the original 5 Rangers, not new characters.

I wonder if they'll get any of the original cast to make cameos...
