'Power Rangers' Reboot: See the Heroes' New 'Extraterrestrial' Outfits

It's starting to look like Time Inc. Presents Power Rangers out here. First People magazine gave us the first look at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, and now Entertainment Weekly's debuting the rebooted, mightily morphed Rangers themselves.

According to the magazine, it's "translucent extraterrestrial armor that crystallizes around their bodies." Becky G, who plays Yellow Ranger Trini, says, “It’s the coolest costume ever. I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years.”

Production designer Andrew Menzies had more insight for EW:

“It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume. Ours is an alien costume that grows on them, that’s not man-made. You can’t win everyone over, but we are trying to appeal to a more mature audience and gain new fans.”

The new movie is set for March 24, 2017. If you're a Power Ranger at heart, we're guessing you'll like hanging out with these video game cosplayers at PAX East 2016:
