“The director and I discussed the musical tone of the score from the script phase of the movie,” Tyler explained. “We wanted it to be evocative, thematic, memorable, and emotional. The sonic palette remained as we planned which was a score played by orchestra, a soundscape of guitars, vintage synths, and drums.”
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
“The Power Rangers themselves have a central theme that applies to the five of them,” said composer Brian Tyler. “I would describe the music as aspirational in that it always reaches for something just out of reach emotionally. It is not blatantly heroic, it is more of a theme of the heart.” Tyler added, “I had watched the series back in the day and still enjoy them. This was a cool opportunity to jump on board something that I previously knew.”
