The team behind the Power Ranges reboot have announced via Twitter that Bill Hader (Superbad) is set to voice Alpha 5, the chatty, supportive robot who works with the powerful Zordon and aids the Rangers.
The move certainly makes sense – Hader has plenty of history with voice over roles, including work on Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (2009), Inside Out (2015), Sausage Party, and providing the fight voice for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (2010).
With Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) voicing Zordon and Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) physically present as villain Rita Repulsa, the movie will find the Rangers battling Rita's evil schemes and defending the Earth while figuring out their own teenage issues.
Power Rangers will be out in the UK on 24 March next year. Hader has recently moved into directing with Barry for HBO, and is also back on US TV screens in spoof documentary show Documentary Now!
