“My favorite color is yellow. It’s like it was meant to be,” the singer wrote on Twitter.

Gomez showed off her acting chops earlier this year on Empire, as feisty Valentina Galindo and this marks the performer’s first major film role. She joins previously announced crime fighters Me and Earl and the Dying Girl ‘s R.J. Cyler (Blue Ranger), Dacre Montgomery (Red Ranger), Ludi Lin (Black Ranger), and Naomi Scott (Pink Ranger).

Directed by Dean Israelite, Power Rangers is set to debut in theaters in 2017.
