Everyone knows that there is a "Power Rangers" reboot coming to the big screen with a grittier- and more mature-looking trailer. But one thing is missing from the trailer, Alpha Five.

Zordon's adorable sidekick, however, has a design that looks like it came straight out of an X Files episode.

Images, footage, and trailer have been released online, but it is only now that fans will have their first look of the funny and always anxious droid. "Ay yi yi!" would be one way to describe how fans accept the new design of the droid, as it looks nothing like the original, Cinema Blend reported.

Alpha Five's New Design

Alpha Five's new design looks like Steven Spielberg's ET and Star Treck's Enterprise had a son, who suffered severe burns, Inverse reported. Alpha Five in the original TV show was loved by fans, since it brings comic relief to the show, especially when he shouts his trademark, "Ay yi yi" with his hands raised near his disk head. That iconic line may still be said by the new Alpha Five, but probably because of how it looks like.

The image was tweeted by IGN, and looks more serious. He might not do things as ridiculous as the original Alpha Five in the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" TV series.

It has weird eye-stalks that look like flash lights. Its overall body figure somehow looks very alien, which only means the new movie will give fans a more out-of-this-world feel for the movie. The new film, which is set to hit cinemas on March 24, 2017, will have a strange and darker tone.

Alpha Five Voiced by Bill Harder

But fans shouldn't lose hope for their favourite side kick, since the droid will be voiced by Bill Harder of "Saturday Night Live." Harder is a very funny comedian, and fans can expect that he will bring that comic attitude voicing the weird alien-looking Alpha Five of the new "Power Rangers" movie.
