Lionsgate is teaming up with Saban Brands to develop a new Power Rangers movie! The live-action reboot will be based on the original 1990s TV series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
According to THR "the new movie franchise will bring back a group of high school kids with superpowers they must harness and use as a team to save the world."
Power Rangers was always fun to watch growing up. My brothers and I would watch it all the time. Even my young daughters watch it on Netflix every single night, which I think is pretty freakin' cool. It's great seeing them get into this kind of stuff. I'm sure they will be extremely excited to hear that a new movie is being made.
I think Power Rangers could be a huge hit as a movie franchise, and I'm surprised it took them this long to make it happen. Saban Brands head, Haim Sabansaid, had this to say in a statement:
"Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangersbrand to the next level.”
Lionsgate CEO, Jon Feltheimer, added:
"We’re thrilled to be partnering with Haim Saban and his team to maximize the potential of this immensely successful and universally recognized franchise."
Of course they are thrilled! This franchise is going to make them a ridiculous amount of money. Power Rangers is still one of the top-rated and longest running boys series being produced. it will be great following the production news on this and seeing the team they assemble to bring it to life. I'm I'm already kind of excited to see the final product.
