Lionsgate’s big screen reboot of Saban’s Power Rangers is pushing forward, with a cast of largely unknown actors (although one big name is in the cast). If anyone was worried that the film wouldn’t be true to the story of the original series, you can breathe a sigh of relief — as they’ve now released the following official synopsis:
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.
It’s pretty much what you’d assume a Power Rangers plot summary would be, although it doesn’t mention whether or not these five teenagers have attitude or not. I mean, they probably have attitude… right? I bet they have attitude.
Power Rangers is scheduled to come out March 24, 2017.
