The cast of the Power Rangers are unmasked in this brand new still ahead of their 2016 San Diego Comic-Con appearance.
Becky G, Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler and Naomi Scott, who all got the poster treatment last week, are ready to meet the fans this weekend for the annual convention.
“Just overall, the whole experience,” Becky shared with EW about her excitement. “There’s so many people in costume and so many die-hard fans, and I’m more excited to meet the Power Rangers fanatics and learning more about what I’m doing. I was a fan growing up, but it’s still, like, a whole new world to be able to share this new insight with the new and old Power Rangers fans. ”
She added, “[My castmates and I] have our little Power Rangers WhatsApp group chat, because we’re all in different parts of the world. You’ve got Ludi [Lin, who plays the Black Ranger] in China, you’ve got Dacre [Montgomery, who plays the Red Ranger] in Australia, and Naomi [Scott, who plays the Pink Ranger] in the U.K. RJ [Cyler, who plays the Blue Ranger] and I are the only ones who live in L.A., so he came by to visit me in the studio. We’re all really looking forward to going. From what I hear, it’s like going to a whole other world.”
Becky G shines in yellow for Trini’s Comic-Con character poster for the upcoming Power Rangers movie.
Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler and Naomi Scott all got the individual poster treatment, which debuted online today (July 14).
“Meet Zack. Bet you couldn’t guess his favorite color,” Ludi joked on Facebook.
He added, “Btw. See you at @Comic_Con next week! ?#?BlackRanger? will personally hand you this poster. That’s how much he loves you…and apparently himself. Ha.”
Power Rangers is expected to hit theaters in March 2017. Check out all the posters below!

The reveal happened over at EW, where production designer Andrew Menzies opened up about the suit re-design.
“It’s tricky finding a new language for a superhero costume,” he shared. “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.”
However, fans are thinking Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) had some influence. Check out their tweets below!
