During the panel, it was also revealed that Goldar will be featured in the movie as Rita Repulsa’s (Elizabeth Banks) right hand. Goldar is one of the oldest villains in the Power Rangers franchise, and is a lion-faced, griffin-themed knight who was second-in-command for both Rita and the later big bad, Lord Zedd.
Pitch Perfect‘s Elizabeth Banks is starring in the film as the villain Rita Repulsa. Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.
The film follows five ordinary teens 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. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

“Scott is single and they’re focusing on other relationships this season, so stay tuned,” Holland shared when asked if a Stiles and Lydia relationship would finally be happening for the last season. “That’s the soundbite I’m allowed to give.”
She added later, “It’s back to solving the Beacon Hills crimes. Malia brings the physicality and Lydia brings the banshee supernatural aspect to it. Between the two of them, they make a great duo.”
“We spent a bit of time sort of collaborating through the rehearsal process with other people before it was initially established that he was going to be playing the role,” Dacre dished to EW about working with Bryan Cranston on the upcoming film.
He added, “So we had a bit of contact with these other actors, and suddenly he came into the mix, and we were all like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Bryan Cranston.’”

“Just overall, the whole experience,” Becky shared with EW about her excitement. “There’s so many people in costume and so many die-hard fans, and I’m more excited to meet the Power Rangers fanatics and learning more about what I’m doing. I was a fan growing up, but it’s still, like, a whole new world to be able to share this new insight with the new and old Power Rangers fans. ”
She added, “[My castmates and I] have our little Power Rangers WhatsApp group chat, because we’re all in different parts of the world. You’ve got Ludi [Lin, who plays the Black Ranger] in China, you’ve got Dacre [Montgomery, who plays the Red Ranger] in Australia, and Naomi [Scott, who plays the Pink Ranger] in the U.K. RJ [Cyler, who plays the Blue Ranger] and I are the only ones who live in L.A., so he came by to visit me in the studio. We’re all really looking forward to going. From what I hear, it’s like going to a whole other world.”
