As you break down the photo, you’ll notice that Trini has been thrown, partially, through the wall. It nicely shows off some of the power that Rita has as well as the strength of Trini to endure such a thing. Overall, the entire scene has a sinister feel to it. One that’s much darker when compared to the light-hearted atmosphere of the 90’s television show (with the exception of Primator; that ape was scary). However, does this take away from the original television show? Does this deviate from the original meaning? The answer is no. The Power Rangers were blowing things up and crashing into buildings long before the Avengers made it cool on the big screen. They just never seemed to talk about it or really acknowledge it. And why would they? It was a children’s television show.
Death and destruction were always with the Power Rangers, but this time no one is going to ignore it.
“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?'”
Also in the interview, Becky G reveals that a majority of the filming has been done. Which means that there’s a good chance that fans may have something to look forward to at next week’s San Diego Comic Con. Be on the look out for those reports.
Power Rangers is scheduled for released on March 24, 2017
