“Power Rangers” has been a staple in American entertainment, being a long running live action television series. When creator Haim Saban teamed up with Lionsgate Production and confirmed a film reboot, fans were delighted.

After a year and a half, the production team is set to start filming in Vancouver, Canada on Feb. 29. Apart from the project rolling, a couple of new developments have also taken place like the casting of veteran actress Elizabeth Banks as the main villain of the film, Rita Repulsa.

Unfortunately, Cinema Blend noted that the release date of “Power Rangers” was pushed to March 2017, almost a year of delay compared to its original premiere date of July 22, 2016.

Fans were a little bit disappointed with the news given that the film had major hurdles in the past including a change in producer. Still, the current cast members, including Dacre Montgomery, Becky G, RJ Cyler and Ludi Lin all shared photos and videos on their respective Instagram accounts showing them preparing for their roles.

One of the original stars of the show, Rose McIver, recently talked to IGN and shared what it was like to be part of the iconic superhero squad.

“Oh my goodness, that was probably one of the funniest eight-month stints of my life. We just laughed our heads off; we had so much fun. I think, make sure you enjoy it. Don’t take yourselves too seriously,” McIver gushed. she played Summer Landsdow or Yellow Ranger in “Power Rangers RPM”

“You’re fighting monsters in rubber suits. But it’s a blast. It’s so cool and it’s so cool to be a part of something that as a child my peers watched and I look now and there are children watching it still. It sort of transcends one particular generation and that’s so fun to be part of, so enjoy every minute,” she added. Currently, McIver plays the titular role in the hit The CW series “iZombie.”
