Following all the super cool character posters Lionsgate released earlier this morning and now we have a new official image from the upcoming Power Rangers reboot! The image below reveals Trini aka The Yellow Ranger played by Becky G going head to head with Elizabeth Banks crazy ass looking Rita Repulsa! So far this film is starting to look pretty good, and I'm really interested to see where they go with this new vision!
Becky did at least shed some light on why Rita has targeted her character, telling Entertainment Weekly:
"Rita tries to make Trini feel like she’s the weakest link of the Power Rangers, and she feels it’s easiest to go for her. Rita’s the type to play a lot of mind games, and Trini’s [thinking], 'Can I really overpower Rita Repulsa or can I not?'"
"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."
Power Rangers is set to hit theaters on March 24th, 2017.
