Go go Power Rangers! Entertainment Weekly has released an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview with one of the stars of the upcoming film adaptation.
Based on the popular ’90s TV series, the Power Rangers movie stars Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Becky G (Yellow Ranger), RJ Cyler (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger), and Ludi Lin (Black Ranger) alongside Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.
In the interview, Becky G broke down a fight scene between her character (Trini, the Yellow Ranger) and Banks’ villainous Rita Repulsa:
When we did our blocking, our run through, Elizabeth and I really wanted to make it fun, to make this scene as real as possible. Actually, I got to run through the wall a couple of times. I got thrown up against it and I got to break it myself. My stunt double of course was there, talking me through it, but I was really, really excited. It was a bit intimidating for me because, you know, it’s Elizabeth! I look up to her a lot as an actress, so getting to work one on one with her is really cool. I learned a lot, and there were moments when I had to hit her, and I was like, “Oh my God, I hope I don’t actually hit her!” She really let me be hands on in a lot of the fighting, so it was cool.
G also revealed the movie is almost done filming:
We’re done with the majority of filming now. We have some reshoots coming up which I’m excited for, because I’ll get to see everybody again. We have Comic-Con before that, which is even more exciting because it’ll be my first time ever. Honestly, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to go before, because my dad works for a really big toy company. He takes my brother every single year, and he’s always offered for me and my other siblings to go, and I’m always like, no, I’ll go eventually. Little did I know I would be going as an official Power Ranger. [Laughs]”
Power Rangers hits theaters in March 2017.
