Whenever the Power Rangers defeat a monster, usually said monster is somehow enlarged to it can wreak more havoc. When that happens, the Rangers call upon their Zords, giant robots that are formidable on their own, but can also combine together to form a super robot called the Megazord (yes, like Voltron). In the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers' case, they called on the Dinozords, modeled after creatures from prehistoric times, and now we have our first look at what the new Dinozords will look like in the upcoming Power Rangers reboot.
Since the new Power Rangers movie is giving us reimagined versions of the classic '90s Rangers, it was only sensible to give moviegoers redesigned versions of their Zords rather than go with a different theme. While the pictures don't fully reveal how these new mechanical beasts will look, their designs are definitely more alien than what was on TV more than two decades ago. First up, we have Dacre Montgomery as Jason the Red Ranger sitting on top of his Tyrannosaurus Zord, which is rocking a nice "candy apple red" color.
Next, Becky G as Trini the Yellow Ranger is standing on her Sabertooth Tiger Zord. Yes, despite the fact that these Zords could destroy cities if used improperly, evidently you don't need to take Driver's Ed to pilot them.
Third is Naomi Scott as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, who has gotten comfortable on her Pterodactyl Zord, the only one of the Zords that can fly. Lucky her!
Fourth is Ludi Lin as Zack the Black Ranger, who is striking a pose on his Mastodon Zord. Evidently a "hot new whip" (a.k.a. a flash, new car, for the older readers out there) isn't enough to describe who cool this Zord is.
Finally, RJ Cyler as Billy the Blue Ranger is relaxing atop his Triceratops Zord, and it's a much better ride than that minivan he presumably drives to school in.
The Power Rangers social media accounts also announced today that they'll release a "first look" at the movie Saturday, October 8 at the New York Comic-Con panel, so maybe that's when fans will get to see these Zords completely and even in action. However, now that these beasts have at least been partially glimpsed, we're eager to see how they look combined as the Megazord. The individual Zords are certainly impressive on their own, but when the teens merge them as one, that's when you know that the true gigantic battle is beginning.
Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
