Power Rangers is taking you back to the beginning.

In a new trailer released on Thursday for the highly anticipated movie, we see how Red Ranger Jason (Dacre Montgomery), Blue Ranger Billy (RJ Cyler), Yellow Ranger Trini (Becky G.), Black Ranger Zack (Ludi Lin) and Pink Ranger Kimberly (Naomi Scott) came to be.

"Me and four kids found a spaceship buried underground," Trini says in the trailer. "I'm pretty sure I'm a superhero."

The official synopsis says the reboot follows "five ordinary high school kids 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 that they are the only ones who can save the planet," the synopsis continues. "But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late."

The full-length trailer comes after the first teaser trailer was released in October, showing the franchise in a darker light.

In June, Bryan Cranston, who plays Zordon in the reboot, dished to ET about his character.

"It's motion capture, and it's a lot of CGI work," he said.

In the '90s TV show, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Zordon was trapped in a time warp, and the new movie could be exploring his mysterious backstory even more.

"The tenant of that storyline is that this is a real person who is trapped in this etherworld and it becomes this in-the-wall so to speak of [the command center]," said Cranston. "He still has a heart and mind, but an agenda that he's got to get these five Power Rangers to defend the earth or else everyone they know will be killed."

Saban's Power Rangers, also starring Elizabeth Banks and Bill Hader, hits theaters March 24.
