Along with the new photo, EW also released a few new quotes about the upcoming film from the film’s director, Dean Israelite. On the subject of diversity within the film, Israelite was quoted as stating:

From the very beginning, diversity was a very important part of the whole process…We switched all of the races around, but we made sure that the essence of each of those characters are who they were in the original show, and this really will be an origin story of those characters.

He also spoke on Elizabeth Banks’ casting as the film’s villain, Rita Repulsa:

It’s very exciting that we got [Banks], and I think what she loves is the opportunity to really embrace the insanity and deliciousness of Rita Repulsa in terms of how weird and wonderful that character was, and really dive into and consume that character…You should always be off-balance when you’re watching her. Is she insane? Is she totally calculated? Does she know what she’s doing? Elizabeth can toe that line really well.

Power Rangers will arrive in theaters on March 24, 2017.
