Last week we got a slew of names of young actors currently up for the role of each Power Ranger in the upcoming reboot. Now Lionsgate has officially cast Kimberly the Pink Ranger in The Marian actress Naomi Scott. Scott beat out other contenders Stephanie Scott and even AnnaSophia Robb.
Next Collider has gotten word on the epic opening sequence that takes place in the upcoming reboot. They also state classic Power Ranger villains like Rita & Lord Zedd aren’t the main antagonists in this upcoming reboot but a more obscure villain from the series.
:: Minor Spoilers Ahead ::
“Rita Repulsa and Lord Zedd will not be the main antagonists. As loyal fans of the series know (and this could be considered a spoiler here), both of those villains were among the evil forces purified by Zordon’s energy wave (or Z-wave) that spread peace throughout the universe. However, not all adversaries were neutralized. There’s even one major villain from the early days of the series who promised she would return, but never did, prompting people to assume that she was destroyed or turned good by the Z-wave. Yes, I’m talking about Scorpina, of course! Sources tell us the ruthless and dangerous minion of Rita has returned to plague the Rangers once more. And it seems she’s brought an army, which she uses to battle the Power Rangers and their robot Megazords in the epic opening battle scene. From what we’re hearing, the Rangers (presumably the Dino Charge team at this point) are protecting the Morphin Grid, an energy field that provides power to every generation of Rangers.”
