“Power Rangers” Stars Scheduled For Upcoming TODAY Show Episodes

The new “Power Rangers” movie opens on March 24.

Ahead of that debut, the film will receive ample exposure on NBC’s TODAY Show.

NBC confirms that star Elizabeth Banks will appear on the March 14 episode. She is scheduled for the 7-9AM ET portion of that day’s show.

Co-star Bryan Cranston will then appear on the March 16 TODAY broadcast. He is also set to appear during the 7-9AM window.

NBC additionally says that “Power Rangers Kids” will appear during the 7-9AM portion of the March 20 episode. The listing is very ambiguous, but it seems logical to assume the segment will include some or all of the young leads (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G and Ludi Lin) from the upcoming film. NBC will hopefully provide more clarity prior to the March 20 broadcast.
