We’ve been hearing a few tidbits here and there about Lionsgate’s Power Rangers film recently. Director Dean Israelite recently said their aiming for a “mature but playful” tone for the film, but now according to Heroic Hollywood, they have learned about two major characters in the film, Rita Repulsa and Zordon.
Here’s what their sources had to say about the characters.
“A huntress. A striking, yet subtly alien-looking woman. [Rita] carries a metallic staff topped with a distinctive crescent shape. Advances with a soldier’s confidence, guided by some sort of compass… Her staff is actually a device of immense power. She points it at the ground. Heads emerge, built layer upon layer like 3-D printing, made from the earth itself… The staff’s technology grants her the ability to create humanoid figures, soulless and robotic.”
“Though alien, [Zordon] looks like a man in his 50s. Sinewy and strong, as if carved from some root that refused to die. A being of integrity and iron will.”
The site went on to claim that the movies prologue would open to the two in battle in a scene that is set during the cretaceous period on the last days of the Dinosuars. Rita will be seen fighting that era’s Power Rangers led by Zordon who is the Red Ranger at the time.
