Hasbro acquired the Power Rangers brand from Saban, which sounds like it will be a very good thing for Power Rangers fans.
Last year a reboot film was released, but after it underperformed at the box office, the future of the franchise was put in doubt.
However, during the Hasbro Strategic Decisions Conference, CEO of Hasbro Inc., Brian Goldner confirmed that they plan to make more motion pictures starring the Power Rangers.
“As I mentioned, we’ve now announced the acquisition of Power Rangers. This is really a great statement about where we believe we are in developing our brand blueprint,” Gardner said via Tokunation. “The fact that we can acquire Power Rangers brand and plug and play that right into our strategy where we activate it in entertainment, motion pictures in the future and then of course across toys and games and consumer products and do so globally. We felt the brand was very under leveraged and undervalued. We feel we can exploit it to a much greater extent and it was a great opportunity to acquire the brand.”
At this point it’s not clear if the next film will be a sequel to the 2017 release, or another reboot, but either way it’s good to know that more films will be made in the future.
