The Power Rangers movie reboot is doing some big redesigns to the franchise's iconic staples, including bold new looks for the Power Rangers themselves, their Zords (and Megazord Robot) and villain Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks).
It's no surprise then that Rita's evil henchman, Goldar would also get a redesign - and now we know what his new look will be.
...Clearly, the filmmakers have taken the whole "Goldar" name a bit too literally, no? An eagle/bat/ape thing in gold armor was weird enough in the classic series, but this all-gold monster (while fitting for something like The Mummy franchise) lacks the personality and charm of "Goldar classic."
If anything, it seems we'll get another mindless, forgettable CGI villain; then again, the images are just action figure promos, so the onscreen Goldar could definitely deliver something better (not likely).
“Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove - and the world - is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.”
Power Rangers stars Bryan Cranston (Zordon), Elizabeth Banks (Rita Repulsa), Naomi Scott (Kimberly/Pink Ranger), David Denman (Sam Scott), Becky G. (Trini/Yellow Ranger), Sarah Grey (Amanda), RJ Cyler (Billy Cranston/Blue Ranger), Emily Maddison (Rebecca), Ludi Lin (Zack Taylor/Black Ranger), and Dacre Montgomery (Jason Lee Scott/Red Ranger).
