The cast of director Dean Israelite's Power Rangers reboot has already been revealed, but here's your first glimpse of them in their new armored costumes.
“Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made," production designer Andrew Menzies told Entertainment Weekly. "You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”
“The show was about kids coming of age, about metamorphosis,” Israelite continued. “These suits needed to feel like they were catalyzed by these kids and their energy, their spirit.”
EW describes the suits as "translucent armor that crystallizes around their bodies". Longtime Power Rangers fans may be reminded of the armored costumes featured in 1995's Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie.
Power Rangers is scheduled to be released in theaters March 24, 2017.
