Power Rangers as we know it tends to be geared toward children, in regards to the ’90s TV show and action figures. The 2017 film adaptation has a PG rating, so it’s still safe for youngsters to go see, but it will also hold the attention for us grown-ups.

But for the most part, the rest of the cast is made up of fairly new faces. While the young actors have credits, it’s kind of nice to go into the film without any distractions or preconceived notions based on earlier work. They are the Power Rangers.

The team of Power Rangers is portrayed by Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), Becky G. (Yellow Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger) and R.J. Tyler (Blue Ranger).
