Six year old me is crying deeply right now for a couple reasons.

All these reasons have to do with the new Power Rangers movie coming out this Friday.

*SPOILERS AHEAD*

First of all, there’s going to be a Power Rangers reboot. Secondly, Trini, the Yellow Ranger, is being portrayed by Latinx actor Becky G and breaking away from the “Yellow Ranger is Asian” cliche.

Third, director Dean Israelite recently confirmed that Trini is queer. Cue happy tears.

Israelite spoke with the Hollywood Reporter and said,

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is. She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. 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.”

Tons of fans are celebrating the news on Twitter, as all the Power Rangers we grew up with were depicted as straight. And this isn’t the first step in diversity for the Power Rangers reboot. Four of the five main Rangers are people of color. Billy, the Blue Ranger portrayed by RJ Cyler, is autistic. Now Trini is going to be our first queer superhero in a blockbuster film.
