In an interview with ComicBook, Power Rangers director, Dean Israelite reveals why the Goldar villain was re-fashioned for the 2017 film. He said:

“I said with my production designer language lets sort of push the envelope on him. And it seemed to start … and I said, we always have to go back to the mythology we’re creating. And the mythology that we are creating is that Rita can … has control over elements around her. And if she has control over the elements around her that’s how she physicalizes and creates the Putties that are then made out of whatever environment is around her and that logic should hold true to Goldar and Goldar then should then come out of this debunked gold mine that the whole movie is set around.” 

Talking about Rita along side with other mosters, he added:

“Well, the honest answer is that I feel like we’ve just seen a gargoyle type monster so many times now since the show has started. And my goal, with the movie, was to really give Power Rangers its own aesthetic and its own language. And you’ll notice the each of the Zords, and the space ship, and Alpha 5, and even Zordon … they’re all very organic. All the shapes are very organic. They’re very alive. They’re biomechanical. We came up with this design that felt to me both terrifying and kind of beautiful at the same time.”
