Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced that it has teamed up with Lionsgate to promote the release of Saban’s Power Rangers movie starring Elizabeth Banks as arch-villain Rita Repulsa, along with new Power Rangers played by Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Becky G, and Ludi Lin. Lionsgate will release Saban’s Power Rangers in theaters nationwide on March 24.
The promotional partnership includes the launch of Krispy Kreme’s first digital shop and real-life Power Rangers doughnuts available now through April 2 at participating shops in the U.S. and Canada.
Available online, Krispy Kreme’s Angel Grove shop is a digital representation of the Krispy Kreme shop featured in the Power Rangers movie. Filmed using Matterport technologies, the shop allows fans worldwide to virtually experience the shop, filled with sneak peeks at scenes from the movie not yet seen.
“We have teamed up with Lionsgate to promote the Power Rangers film in a way that allows fans to experience Krispy Kreme in a totally new, unexpected way,” says Jackie Woodward, chief marketing officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “The virtual opening of Krispy Kreme Angel Grove comes with the same passion and excitement experienced with a traditional Krispy Kreme shop grand opening.”

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, the film’s heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. To do so, they have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.
