Rita is integral for several elements of the Power Rangers story if they want to go with the original concepts (as many long time fans of the franchise will know). Without her we can’t get a Green Ranger, *hint hint*. For those of you unfamiliar Rita was the head honcho and primary nemesis for the Rangers who also was the one super sizing them with greater power thus ensure that we would get some giant robot on giant monster action.
Now while Elizabeth Banks is stepping into a role played by several actresses I would like to add the voice of Rita was voice actress Barbara Goodson so just throwing it out there that maybe we can have Banks and the original voice all in one awesome package. The Power Rangers Movie releases March 24, 2017.
