The updated Power Rangers team featured more modern and well-rounded characters. One of the most significant was Yellow Ranger Trini, played by Becky G.

In the film it is revealed that Trini is gay. Her teammates don’t make a big deal out of it, and there’s not time to delve deeper into her character, but Becky G would like to see that change in any possible sequels.

“The truth is with something like that, you don’t just wake up and know. It’s a process,” the actress told The Mary Sue. “And so, as time goes by, if we make Power Rangers 2, 3, 4 … I’m excited to see how she grows.”
