Filming is officially underway on Lionsgate's revival of the classic television series Power Rangers! With director Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) at the helm and a whole new cast of Rangers on board, we're ready to see them morph the beloved series and usher it into the modern age.
One of the biggest stars involved in the project is The Hunger Games' Elizabeth Banks as the primary antagonist, evil sorceress Rita Repulsa. Photos have already been released of Banks as Repulsa and it's clear the character's original aesthetic has been totally redesigned for the reboot.
Today, a handful of new photos were released (via Latino Review) featuring images of Banks decked out in her green gear and wielding her powerful and ornate wand on the set in Steveston, British Columbia, the stand-in for fictional Angel Grove. Check out some of the images below:
From these on-set photos we can see that Banks is wreaking serious havoc on this small town.
Thanks to one onlooker, we even have a bit of video footage of Rita Repulsa in action. According to the poster, Banks could be heard shouting "Curse you!" in other shots.
In addition to Banks, Power Rangers also stars Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), Becky G. (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), and Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger). Go Go Power Rangers!
The new 'Power Rangers' movie will reach theaters on March 24, 2017.
What do you think of Rita Repulsa's new look?
