The upcoming "Power Rangers" movie has got a final cast, and an official release date. Now, fans of the long-running series are eagerly waiting for March 24, 2017, when the movie is scheduled to be out, to find out the difference between the film version and the television series.
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, actor Bryan Cranston of "Breaking Bad" fame, who will portray the mentor of the Ranger, Zordon, said that there will be significant differences between the movie and the TV series of the franchise.
"You can't compare those two, and nor can you compare this movie version of the Power Rangers to that television series. It's unrecognisable for the most part. There are tenets of the folklore that you hold onto for sure, but the inspiration is different, and the sensibility of it, and the approach to the film making is completely different," Cranston said.
Though Cranston hasn't pointed towards any particular change that will take place in the movie, his statement clears the fact that there will be several changes that will make the movie an entirely different experience; something that the fans have not witnessed yet through the various Power Rangers series.
One of the major differences that fans might get to see is that the tone of the movie will be significantly darker and on a different line as compared to the series. However, since the movie revolves around the story of teenagers, it won't be as dark as the likes of "The Dark Knight" trilogy.
Apart from the theme, the movie will also emphasise on the personal life of all the protagonists and will deal with their various teenage-related problems and struggles. It won't be just any other action-packed Power Ranger story, but will also focus on how all the Rangers cope with their personal issues individually.
