Cranston told Entertainment Tonight about his Zordon role, "Yes, it's motion capture and it's a lot of CGI-work. The tenant of that storyline is that this a real person who is trapped in this etherworld and it becomes this in-the-wall so to speak of [the command center], He still has a heart and mind, but an agenda that he's got to get these five Power Rangers to defend the earth or else everyone they know will be killed. So, it's exciting."
From the sounds of it, it seems we'll be seeing some form of the classic energy tube from "Might Morphin' Power Rangers," or another high-concept representation of Zordon in the new film. And, it also looks as though some of Zordon's origin will be shown (or explained), allowing Cranston to appear in a more human form.
Starring Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, Ludi Lin as Black Ranger Zack, Dacre Montgomery as Red Ranger Jason, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger Kimberly, Becky G as Yellow Ranger and RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger Billy and Cranston as Zordon, "Power Rangers" opens on March 24, 2017.
