Hasbro toy maker juggernaut is developing a sequel to the 2017 Powers Rangers movie.
Growing up in the 90’s Mighty Morphing Power Rangers was an institution and I was committed so when the 2017 movie based on the show came out in theaters I was there and even though I enjoyed the film it was far from a hit earning $56.9 million internationally, bringing its worldwide haul to $142.3 million on an estimated $100 million production budget which is not good. So when Brian Goldner, the CEO of Power Ranger’s rights holders Hasbro said by way of trade site Inside Licensing that the company “will work with a film studio to develop a new Power Rangers movie as a follow-up to the 2017 release.” it was a bit of a shock.
“Shortly after entering into our licensing arrangement, it became clear that now was the time to begin investing in unlocking Power Rangers’ full potential. We see significant opportunity for Power Rangers across our entire Brand Blueprint, including toys and games, consumer products, digital gaming, and entertainment, as well as geographically throughout our global retail footprint. We couldn’t be more pleased that Haim Saban will continue in a consulting role to further guide our development of this valuable property for the next generation of Power Rangers fans.” Brian Goldner also said in an official release in May.
It’s not known if writer John Gatins (Real Steel) and directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac) will be back for this possible Power Rangers sequel or if it will keep the darker tone the 2017 film had. Whether it be a sequel or a reboot Hasbro is dedicated to putting out a Powers Rangers movie out in the near future.
