For those who don’t know, next year we are getting another reboot movie based on a popular kids TV series from over 20 years ago.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
The past couple of weeks, images have leaked of the new look for Rita Repulsa, as played by actress Elizabeth Banks.
Gone is her flowing dress, weird breast plate, and corny hat. Her design is drastically different from the original Rita Repulsa from the TV series, sporting an almost alien Poison Ivy vibe to her with her green body forming costume with dragon scale like accents.
Banks’s Rita Repulsa has been the only official design of a character that has been revealed so far of this new movie, everything else except who is playing the new rangers is a mystery.
I just hope whatever they do with the rangers, they do not keep them in the spandex suits…

Well she still is a space witch.
Maybe this new Rita will be a lead from the front type of leader, rather than a lead from behind like the old one.
The plus side of this Rita is that it has no Japanese predecessor.
The original Rita Repulsa was just the Japanese villain with an English voice dub (at least S1 was, the later seasons ran out of stock footage). The original Japanese villain…actually had a pretty good singing voice…
