There's no doubt that everyone in their childhood wanted to be like one of the red, yellow or pink sentai heroes, who Japanese people are still proud of! Attracting a high level of interest from both children and adults for over 40 years in Japan, massive fanfare follows whenever a new release in the series is announced. There are always people eager to find-out which actors will be cast and what kind of special effects will be used!

The long-running TV program known as the "Super Sentai Series" gained huge popularity in Japan and overseas. The English-speaking world imported and adapted it in the 1990s. It was during this period that the American Super Sentai "POWER RANGERS" drama series first hit TV screens, and it is still shown today. The latest "POWER RANGERS" Hollywood blockbuster returned after a 20-year wait, and finally reaches Japan this summer, opening in cinemas nationwide on July 15th 2017! The film is told on an epic scale; depicting five high school students who acquire super human powers, tackle the dangers that threaten humankind head-on, and eventually grow into fully fledged heroes!

Dacre Montgomery (Jason Scott / Red Ranger) makes his Hollywood debut with this film, joining a cast that includes a number of talented young actors who are gaining a lot of attention right now, such as Naomi Scott (Kimberly Hart / Pink Ranger), RJ Cyler (Billy Cranston / Blue Ranger), Becky G. (Trini / Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin (Zack / Black Ranger), as well as Bryan Cranston (Zordon), who also appeared in the TV series.

The Japanese dubbed version features popular actors Ryo Katsuji (勝地涼), Alice Hirose (広瀬アリス), Arata Furuta (古田新太), as well as an impressive array of top voice artists including Tomokazu Sugita (杉田智和), Nana Mizuki (水樹奈々), Tatsuhisa Suzuki (鈴木達央), and Miyuki Sawashiro (沢城みゆき)! The audience are sure to be treated to a feast of fabulous acting whether they decide to go for the original (with subtitles) or dubbed version!
