It feels weird to say this in 2016, at the age of 33, but what the hell? Here goes nothing:

“I’m excited about the Power Rangers.”

Yesterday, I shared a couple of interesting theories about how this upcoming Power Rangers reboot is going to rework Rita Repulsa’s backstory. Today, I get to share with you the first official images revealing how Alpha 5 will look in Dean Israelite’s movie.

Check out Alpha 5 (who’ll be voiced by Bill Hader):

Look, I know some purists will be bothered by these designs but- thankfully- I’m not a purist. Considering the more sci-fi feel that this Power Rangers reboot is going for, I think this very alien-looking design is spot on.

How about you?

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

Power Rangers comes out on March 24.
