We knew “Power Rangers” baddie Rita Repulsa would be getting a makeover in the new big-budget movie version of the old kiddie series, and now fans get to see the result.

And, well, it’s pretty shocking! Elizabeth Banks‘ all-green take on the character showcased doesn’t much look like the old version, which was likely the point. This is not your childhood’s Repulsa.

“It’s definitely a modern and edgy re-imagining of the original Rita Repulsa,” Banks told People, which posted the first look.

The $120 million big screen “Power Rangers” reboot — which, if you don’t recall, is about a team of superpowered teenagers who do battle with aliens — will hit theaters in March 2017, so you have a while to get used to Rita’s new getup.
