The upcoming big screen version of the classic ‘90s kids show will see Yellow Ranger Trini coming to terms with her sexuality.
One particular moment, which has been described as “pivotal”, sees the other heroes realise Trini is having girlfriend problems, rather than boyfriend problems.
Speaking about the moment, director Dean Israelite told The Hollywood Reporter: ”For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is.
Trini was originally played by late actress Thuy Trang is the original TV series, and was portrayed as straight.
The decision to include an LGBT+ character in the film has won praise from former ‘Power Rangers’ star David Yost.
David, who played Blue Ranger, Billy, in the TV series and is gay himself, also told The Hollywood Reporter: “I think so many people in the LGBTQI community are going to be excited to see that representation.”
“I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more,” he said.
Adding it would be “nice” for Deadpool to have a boyfriend at some point, he went on: “I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great.”
The ‘Power Rangers’ announcement follows he move to include an “exclusively gay moment” in the recent live action remake of ‘Beauty And The Beast’.
