Several more elements from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will be in the upcoming movie reboot. Nerdist confirmed in a teaser for an upcoming interview with the Power Rangers cast that Alpha 5, Zordon's chipper robot assistant, will appear in the new movie. Since the new Power Rangers movie has been called a "more serious" version of the colorful, action-packed 1990s TV show, many fans were worried that the saucer-headed robot wouldn't appear in the movie.

Nerdist declined to give many details, but the website also confirmed that the Dinozords will also appear in the movie. After getting a good, up close look at the new Rangers' helmets on Wednesday, we can safely bet that the new movie's Zord lineup will include the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Mastodon, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, and a Saber-Toothed Tiger.

One question that wasn't answered in Nerdist's teaser was whether or not the new movie would use the catchy theme song from the original show. There's a billion metal covers of the theme song out there, so it'll likely at least make an appearance on the movie's sound track.

Power Rangers stars Elizabeth Banks, Bryan Cranston, Dacre Montgomery, Becky G, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, and Ludi Lin. Power Rangers will be released in the United States on March 24, 2017.
