In an exclusive from IGNLionsgate revealed the concept art behind their adaptation of the Power Rangers character Alpha 5. The new version of Alpha 5 will be voiced by SNL alum Bill Hader.

This version of Alpha 5 is definitely more streamlined than what I can recall from the original series. With these modern reboots of science fiction properties, there is always a tendency to rid themselves of bright primary colors and go for a darker, edgier look. Even though we already knew this based off of what has been released so far, the Power Rangers reboot is sticking to what is popular right now with the color palette.

The official synopsis for the Power Rangers reboot is below:

SABAN’S POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary teens 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 they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
