We’ve seen the teens with attitude, we’ve seen Rita Repusla, we’ve even seen the Ranger suits. But until now, we’ve still not actually seen anything in terms of stills from the Power Rangers movie, thanks to this first look at the film.
As part of the kick-off of their San Diego Comic-Con coverage, Entertainment Weekly revealed the scene, featuring Becky G as Yellow Ranger Trini being threatened by the villainous Rita. Becky G describes the scene as Rita singling out the youngest ranger as the weak link in the team:
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?”
It’s still weird to see Elizabeth Bank’s Rita costume— being almost literally alien to the character’s original look—but the idea of her being a little more than a loveable, cackling despot and going after the rangers while they’re not powered up and ready to kick her butt is an interesting one.
