Do you remember where you were when it happened? Do you remember what you were doing when you were watching Television and you first saw the pink ranger and immediately called dibs? I was almost 11 years old watching Fox Kids at my grandparents house when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers came on. I was too young to know about shows like this originating in Japan, so to me this was all new. Due to me being so young everything seemed right about the show and nothing seemed off. The story made sense, the putties seemed like worthy foes and Rita Repulsa’s monsters weren’t rubber suits doing weird dance moves. Out of the two girls on the show Kimberly, the pink ranger, was my favorite and looking back she’s the only one who has aged well.

It’s been over 20 years later and it’s time for the pink ranger hotness to be passed down to another worthy girl. There have been other versions of the pink ranger, but the soon to be released movie version is one that actually seems like she could kick ass. I first learned of Naomi Scott from Terra Nova, which was a really good show and I think it should have lasted longer. Now Instagram has revealed that she will be the next pink ranger and this post has described her age in the movie coming out in 2017

Kimberly – 17 years old, unconventionally cool all in a way the popular girls wish they were. In fact, she was one of those girls, but isn’t anymore. Not since she’s returned to school after an absence of 6 months. Rumors are flying as to why; rumors she seems not to care about, because she’s come back with this new rebel-without-a-cause, edgy attitude. But the truth is, it’s all masking a deep secret that makes her feel profoundly vulnerable.

It’s official! #NaomiScott will play the #PinkRanger in the @PowerRangersMovie!  Coming in 2017…
