Now that the cast has come together, the film version of “Power Rangers” is now beginning production. Now, a photo has been officially released, showing the main characters outside their Power Rangers personas. This includes, from left to right, Billy the Blue Ranger (RJ Cyler), Kimberly the Pink Ranger (Naomi Scott), Zach the Black Ranger (Ludi Lin), Trini the Yellow Ranger (Becky G.), and Jason the Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery). Although there have not been any pictures of the suits these characters will wear, director Dean Israelite said that the costumes will be a greatly improved thanks to “Lord of the Rings” costume designer company Weta Workshop, saying that the suits will be”really modern, edgy, badass, aspirational quality.”
