Comments from 4 casts have arrived!
Tomokazu Sugita as Blue Ranger (Billy), Nana Mizuki as Yellow Ranger (Trini), Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Black Ranger (Zack) and Miyuki Sawashiro as villain character Rita Repulsa were announced as dubbing casts for Hollywood movie “Power Rangers”. The movie will be on screen from July 15 in Japan.
Comment by Tomokazu Sugita as Blue Ranger (Billy)
I’m thinking that how heroes act and my character Billy grow are important factors in the movie.
Comment by Nana Mizuki as Yellow Ranger (Trini)
It is honor to be chosen as cast for “Power Rangers”, a title which is loved by many people all over the world. It’s rare for women to perform a hero, so I was very happy and put all my effort into recording!
Trini likes to be alone but she fights back her suffers and conflicts with her superpower. Of course, action scenes are dynamic but please take a close look towards their emotional descriptions.
Comment by Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Black Ranger (Zack)
I’ll be performing as Zack/Black Ranger. I was personally looking forward to see how Japanese ‘Tokusatsu’ will change its shape by filmed in oversea, and I’m very happy that my name will be credited in such movie.
I once experienced Tokusatsu in “Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters” as voice actor for Buddyloid, so I hope I can introduce different way of dubbing in this movie.
Comment by Miyuki Sawashiro as villain warrior Rita Repulsa
When I was announced to be performing as Rita Repulsa, my first impression was ‘Can I really play this role…?’ This character is based on a character appeared in “Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger” called Witch Bandora, and I couldn’t forget Ms. Machiko Soga’s performance. May be it was my first time to feel admire towards someone.
It may be impossible to reach my childhood memory, but I used my full effort trying to defeat all 5 rangers so please watch this movie also in dubbed version.
