The Power Rangers movie will do something the original live-action series, and no major superhero film, has done before it: feature the first LGBTQ superhero.
The news comes from Power Rangers director Dean Israelite, who spoke with the Hollywood Reporter. The Yellow Ranger, Trini, played by Becky G addresses her sexuality while still “questioning a lot about who she is.”
“She hasn’t fully figured it out yet,” Israelite tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, 'That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”
The news of Trini’s sexuality was quickly praised on the Twitterers. We have a description of the exact scene in which Trini talks about her sexuality (spoiler warning): Read more (3/20/17 6:51 PM)
