On Wednesday, May 17, 2017 a cast talk for the Power Rangers movie was held. At the event were Ryo Katsuji (VA of Jason Scott/Red Ranger), Alice Hirose (Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger), and Ryota Yamasato (Alpha-5).
The special guests were treated to applause as they appeared on stage. The theme song of Power Rangers played.
The cast began by doing a live dub of clips from the film. Katsuji have a heated performance as Jason when first meeting Alpha-5. This will be Hirose’s voice acting debut. She was nervous as she performed. Yamamoto has extensive voice acting experience, from Super Sentai to Pretty Cure. Mistakes were made and apologies given, but the cast performed their best to the delight of the venue.
When I Received the Offer
Katsuji: I was happy, and I thought it was an honor.
Hirose: Growing up, I watched Super Sentai with my older brother. I was nervous to watch the movie and to be cast as the Pink Ranger.
Yamamoto: I was able to play the role of a robot this time. I had to act like a machine and not be emotional. But movies like Power Rangers, I feel like it’s loved by many generations. I’m happy to be involved in this work. Adults and children in Japan will enjoy it.
Power Rangers will be released in Japan on Saturday, July 15, 2017.
