The most evil villainess of the “Power Rangers” galaxy has returned. People has posted the first official look at Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa in the upcoming live-action film reboot of the property.

Speaking with the outlet from the set of the film which is currently in production in Vancouver, Banks says: “It’s definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita Repulsa. We wanted to give her a backstory that connects her to the new Rangers.”

The film follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Naomi Scott, Becky G, and Ludi Lin star in the Dean Israelite-directed film which opens March 24th next year.
