From Entertainment Weekly:

When the Power Rangers revival morphs into theaters, the five teenagers with attitude won’t be wearing the original series’ campy costumes to battle Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks). Instead, the new cast — singer Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy — will don translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies.

Commentary: I am still not really sure how I feel about this whole project.  I did enjoy the original Might Morphin Power Rangers back in the day, but I was never a big fan.  And I have said many times how much I hate remakes on general principle.  I do think that the updated looking costumes do look cool, but at the same time, they just don't have that timeless feel the originals had...  

The new MMPR comic series has shown that you can update the Power Rangers for today without getting rid of everything that made the original so unique.  And so far, I'm just not sure this new movie has that same intent.  But, I am quite ready to dismiss this movie yet.
