From one strange character to the next, Elizabeth Banks leaves behind the Capitol’s fashion from Hunger Games‘ Effie Trinket, to rule the galaxy as the Power Rangers’ nemesis, Rita Repulsa. This morning EW shares the first image of the iconic villain.
Rita is an Evil monster summoning alien bent on galactic domination who was imprisoned by the sage Zordon of Eldar when she tried to invade Earth. Her release from the space dumpster prison is what lead to the five teenagers from Angel Grove to be summoned and granted with Morph coins to battle the forces of evil.
The sleeker look on Rita makes me excited for more to come from this upcoming reboot and other character designs. Having grown up during the times that Power Rangers was at its strongest point makes this one of the projects I’m most looking forward to. Power Rangers is scheduled to release on March 24, 2017
