"Power Rangers" Zordon, played by Bryan Cranston, talks about his hesitation to take the role of Zordon. The film is almost finished shooting all the scenes, getting ready for its scheduled premiere on March 24, 2017.
In a recent interview with Bryan Cranston, the actor explains he is initially reluctant to accept the role of Zordon, Power Ranger's mentor, but changed his mind after reading the script and talking to the producer's film.
He said "At first I was, to be honest with you, I was reticent to looking at the role because I remember the television series was kind of farcical and silly and 'pow' and 'zow' - weird movements and things like that. I was like, 'Oh, OK,'"
But after talking to the director, he realized "This is different"
"This is as different as reimagining the 'Batman' television series and became the 'Batman' movie series. You can't compare those two, and nor can you compare this movie version of the 'Power Rangers' to that television series." he explained.
Unbeknownst to many, Cranston also worked in dubbing the Power Rangers television series 35 years ago. The actor did it so often that one of the characters was named after him "Billy Cranston or Blue Power Ranger"
Cranston also hinted the possible appearance of Green Ranger in the movie who could join the team too. But no official statement and no actor has been reported to possibly portray the 6th ranger.
Becky G. who portrays Yellow Ranger also shared the movie is almost finished filming and only needs to do several reshoots in the following days. Other casts in "Power Rangers" are Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger or Jason Lee Scott, Ry Cyler as Blue Ranger or Billy Cranston, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger or Zack Taylor and Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger or Kimberly Hart.
