Goldar Battles The Zords In New POWER RANGERS Image; Details On Controversial Redesign Revealed

Two new images from the upcoming Power Rangers have been released, featuring a detailed look at Goldar taking on the Zords while the movie's director and designer weigh in on his new look...

The new designs for the upcoming Power Rangers have generated a lot of discussion in recent months, with Goldar's literal gold makeover proving to be particularly controversial with some fans. 

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, production designer Andrew Menzies confirmed that this version won't be as chatty as his small screen counterpart as he wanted to create a kaiju-like beast who would serve as a physical manifestation of Rita Repulsa's evil nature. "Dean and I talked about him being faceless and intimidating and characterless. He’s an extension of Rita that’s unstoppable."

Bizarrely, Menzies revealed that he based Goldar off a chocolate fountain as he has a melting form which is constantly changing. "I think as humans we always search for character in a face, and if it’s always shifting and changing, it becomes scary. If it moved like chocolate and kept flowing, you could never put your finger on it." That's a pretty unique sounding description, but one which makes a little more sense when Power Rangers director Dean Israelite weighs in on this version of the villain. 

"There’s something very beautiful about him," he explains. "All of the negative space that’s constantly in Goldar’s design feels very eerie, but on the other hand, he’s a kinetic sculpture."
