Power Rangers isn’t the same without Alpha 5, but the movie reboot’s robot sidekick isn’t quite looking like how we remember him.
However, Alpha 5 isn’t actually a robot in the new movie. Instead he’s actually an alien, and has similarly textured armor to the Ranger’s own suits; a bizarre mix of organic and inorganic parts.
They did keep some elements of the original alpha, including the mostly-red colour scheme and the saucer shaped head. Among other things given a revamp are the Ranger’s armor (which decidedly looks more alien) the Zords, and Rita Repulsa, who looks totally different from her TV show counterpart.
Power Rangers hits theatres 24 March 2017.
