In an interview wth Entetainmet Weekly Tuesday Cranston revealed a bit more. ““It’s motion capture, and it’s a lot of CGI-work.”
He went on to say, “The tenant of that storyline is that this a real person who is trapped in this etherworld and it becomes this in-the-wall so to speak of [the command center]. He still has a heart and mind, but an agenda that he’s got to get these five Power Rangers to defend the earth or else everyone they know will be killed.”
Cranston lent his voice to the Power Rangers TV series 23 years ago, playing character likes Snizard and Tinman.
Elizabeth Banks will play the rangers’ main nemesis in the movie, Rita Repulsa. The film will hit theaters in March of 2017.
