The Power Rangers reboot is taking a step forward in the diversity game.
Trini, the Yellow Ranger played by Becky G, will have a subplot throughout the movie regarding her sexual orientation. Director Dean Israelite told The Hollywood Reporter that Trini’s sexuality is “small” but “pivotal” for the movie.
“I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe,” Israelite said.
