It seems Hasbro is finally planning to roll out a Power Rangers sequel film. Hasbro recently acquired the property and other brands from Saban Brands, for a deal valued at a whopping $522 million.
The 2017 big budget live-action reboot didn’t perform well at the box office. The movie grossed just $142 million worldwide. Despite the film’s lackluster performance, Hasbro is reportedly planning to develop another Power Rangers movie that will be a direct sequel to the 2017 film.
According to a report coming from licensing.org, Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner told analysts that the company will collaborate with a film studio to develop a new Power Rangers movie.
“Hasbro will work with a film studio to develop a new Power Rangers movie as a follow-up to the 2017 release,” Goldner said.
He also termed 2019 a transition year for Power Rangers as Hasbro is gearing up to introduce new products in March and April.
To recall, the 2017 Power Rangers movie ended teasing the Green Ranger Tommy Oliver. He is also considered to be the greatest Ranger of all time as he has been a part of four Ranger teams over the years. He is a martial arts expert.
Considering how popular the character is among fans, it would probably be a smart decision on Hasbro’s part to center the upcoming film on the Green Ranger. It is likely that the sequel could showcase a theatrical version of the series’ famous Green With Evil saga.
More details such as the film’s storyline, returning cast, and the studio that will be partnering with Hasbro to make the sequel is expected to be announced in the coming months. It remains to be seen if director Dean Israelite will be brought back for the sequel film.
Power Rangers (2017) is currently available for purchase on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy.
