Bryan Cranston to Play Zordon in Saban’s Power Rangers Movie
If you’re new to the site or haven’t been paying very close attention, you might not know that around here, a bunch of us are huge fans of Power Rangers. And you also might not know that we aren’t all that excited about the new movie coming out. But with this announcement, some of us might end up seeing it after all.

Zordon, for the uninitiated, is the mentor of the Rangers. He found the Power Coins that gave the Rangers their powers. Before that, he was at war with Rita Repulsa for centuries and was the one who trapped her and her minions in the dumpster on the moon. This all makes sense, I swear.
Cranston himself is no stranger to Power Rangers. He voiced a couple of monsters in the first season of the show, and was so loved among the crew that the Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston, was named after him.
Power Rangers is set for release on March 24th, 2017.
