We Now Have an Official Synopsis For ‘Power Rangers’

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.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
