It looks like we can expect more Power Rangers films in the works after the reboot. Which is good news in a way. And this news, of course, comes after Hasbro consumed the Saban Brand. Because Transformers was just an awesome film franchise they couldn’t let the opportunity of another franchise go unadapted thoroughly.
Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner mentioned more Power Rangers movies at the recent Hasbro Strategic Decisions Conference:
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. 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.
Whether this will be a continuation of the lacklustre reboot or a new film altogether is still anyone’s guess.
More as things develop.
