During the visit, Ludi, Becky, RJ, Naomi and Dacre dished about the school supplies that they couldn’t live without when they were in school and helped all the kids unleash their super powers.
Becky also got to sing her song, “Shower” while RJ was spotted dabbing with just about everyone.
Later on, the Power Rangers cast headed to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles for a special screening of their new film and met with teen patients at CHLA’s Teen Lounge, where they also dropped off posters and action figures from the flick.
Everyone loves Trini in The Power Rangers — she stands for ultimate girl power in all of the Power Rangers shows, and we could think of no one better to play her than Becky G.
“The character carries a lot of weight because it’s been played by amazing actresses,” she revealed in a new interview with TeenVogue. “Not only that, but we’re holding people’s childhood dreams in the palms of our hands.”
Becky didn’t change Trini, she’s just telling her origin story.
“I took in consideration the story of the previous Trinis, but also it was kind of easy in a sense because I’m not stepping into anyone else’s shoes other than this Trini, who is this girl in high school that’s lost and kind of figuring herself out…I feel like that’s so relatable because a lot of teenagers go through a lot of different things nowadays.”
“She’s kind of like this loner and kind of owns it, but really just doesn’t want to admit that she doesn’t like being on her own,” she added, “Here she is faced with four other kids who she maybe would’ve never thought she’d kind of cross social paths with.”
Becky adds, “She ends up on an amazing adventure with them and has the first opportunity in her life to have real friends.”

The film 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 20-year-old singer actually met him through her Power Rangers co-star Naomi Scott!
“If it weren’t for this movie, there would not have been this shift that happened in my life. I was kind of in a place in my music, the English side — I didn’t know what I wanted to do next. Creatively, I was stuck in a box. I felt like I needed a break,” Becky told the Miami Herald. “That’s when the audition for Power Rangers came about. Then a new environment, new energy. Being around amazing people made me feel happy and excited and re-energized.”
She added, “I actually got introduced on set to my boyfriend and I’m in love. I feel like this movie is a major milestone for me and attracted nothing but great things personally and professionally.”
The 20-year-old star plays the Yellow Power Ranger in the film – and the director, Dean Israelite, revealed that the scene where the news is revealed is small but “pivotal.”
The scene happens where Trini is going through relationship problems, which one of the heroes assumes is “boyfriend problems,” but then discovers it’s “girlfriend problems.”
“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” Dean told THR. “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.”
There are superheros who have represented the LGBTQ community, but it’s never been translated to the big screen.
