New ‘Power Rangers’ Rita Repulsa Pic
Following a trailer release, Lionsgate has revealed a new photo from the upcoming big screen reboot of the Power Rangers franchise, featuring Elizabeth Banks as the iconic baddie Rita Repulsa in all it’s green glory.
It’s now obvious she’s going to be the main driving force against a group of teenagers (all of them outcasts). Originally a character from the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” series, she remains one of the most anticipated pieces of the movie along with Bryan Cranston‘s Zordon.
Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Becky G and Ludi Lin play the rangers, while Bill Hader is Alpha 5. Directed by Dean Israelite, the film arrives in theaters on March 24, 2017.
Could the Green Ranger be in the movie? Honestly, I don’t know, but it could be possible that Rita gives the Green Ranger his power. Check out the new photo, released via the official Power Rangers movie Twitter account.
Saban’s Power Rangers 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. 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.
