The Power Rangers are returning to entertain a whole new generation, and in 2017 they are making a statement.

According to the Daily Mail, the iconic superhero story from the 90s will return to the big screen, but this time it’ll be more meaningful because singer Becky G’s character is a lesbian, Latina protagonist.

The identity of Becky’s character, Trini, is apparently “small” but “pivotal,” and according to the Daily Mail, “she’s questioning a lot about who she is. She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think that’s what’s great about the scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s okay.’”

Accepting difference is definitely a progressive theme that the film wants to take on. It’s reported that only 19 characters in all the top 100 films of 2014 were represented as gay, lesbian or bisexual, so including one in this story is important for the LGBTQ community.

The Power Rangers movie will also reportedly feature an autistic character, which also sends the message: It doesn’t matter who you are, you can help save the world.

  1. Me before finding out about it having LGBT and autistic characters: zero interest in the movie.
    After finding out? I GOTTA GO SEE THIS ASAP OMFG SO FUCKING PSYCHED!!!

    Before anyone calls me shallow: I'm starved for representation. I end up watching shit I have no interest in (like fucking slice of life, fuck that shit.) just because I want to relate to someone in a thing I'm watching. I actually super love superheroes – THEY'RE MY SPECIAL INTEREST FFS. I just never got into PR when I was a kid.

  2. Love mighty morphing power rangers because it was awesome but campy while remaining innocent so why the hell does the LGBT bullshit have to be rammed down the worlds throat? This is bull shit I get it some people are gay some of my friends are but I don't want it forced into things just because of inequality. I will still watch the movie but this is bull shit an I'm sick of this horse crap being everywhere like the world will stop spinning if LGBT people feel left out. You still exist as a person even if your not represented in a movie so stop trying to force everyone to love people because of their differences and just love people because they are people. Still think this is an innocent show that now has to deal with something that shouldn't be forced into the movie.

  3. While you add it, just make every movie and kids cartoons with gay characters. Smh. Goddamn. does everything has bo gay now?? everything i watch now on TV. Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV? there has to be gay in it. Why?? Nothing against if people are gay but this is bullshit. This is really exaggerating and making a gay statement is pushing it to far. People will hate the LGBT community even more if gay is in everywhere now. Let straight people just except the gay cummunity in time and let people enjoy movies and not deal with the gay rights all the time. Now what, In The next teenage mutant ninja tutles 3 movie has April have to be a lesbian too?? just to make a statement?? or gay character in transformers 6??

  4. If it wasn't apart of the story don't add it. Your so called message is garbage. So many well known people are apart of LGBT. I'm black and I don't want a hero to change from what ever race he was to black. Keep it the way it is. Make your own character up dammit don't change stuff.
