When the Power Rangers return to the big screen, their trusty aide Alpha 5 will be along for the ride. IGN released concept art of what the Bill Hader-voiced robot will look like when it’s rendered in CGI. Keeping the same form as it’s television counterpart, the Alpha 5 appearing in the rebooted “Power Rangers” film ditches the brighter red and blue colors from the original design for more of a darker look. The new Alpha 5 does keep its large, circular head, albeit with protruding light bulbs for eyes.
In the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” television series, Alpha 5 chose the five “teenagers with attitude” to become Power Rangers and protect the Earth from the evil Rita Repulsa. Alpha 5 is known for using the phrase “ay yi yi” whenever he’s excited or in a state of panic. It’s still unknown if Bill Hader will use that catch phrase when he takes over the role in the upcoming feature film.
Directed by Dean Israelite, “Power Ranges” stars Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason Lee Scott, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly Hart, RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy Cranston, Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini Kwan, and Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack Taylor. It also features Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston as Zordon. The big-screen adaptation of the television hit arrives in theaters on March 24, 2017.
