Now That Hasbro Owns POWER RANGERS They Plan on Making More Movies

I was a little late to the party and only recently watched the new Power Rangers movie. I was surprised at how well I liked the movie right up until they morphed. For me, that was when the movie started going downhill and there’s a good chance a lot of that has to do with my inner fanboy raging about all the changes they made. With how the movie performed at the box office and Hasbro acquiring the franchise from Saban, many fans have been wondering if a sequel will happen. It might. CEO of Hasbro, Brian Goldner, recently outlined their plans for Power Rangers, and you may notice, they want to do movies.

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.

So we know that Hasbro wants to make Power Rangers movies. The question is, will they reboot the franchise or just continue it? The recent film was done through Lionsgate, but Hasbro partners with Paramount Pictures which is one of the reasons some are thinking it will be rebooted instead of continued.

I personally would not mind a reboot so they can get the Power Rangers part of the movie right. What do you think Hasbro should do with the Power Rangers franchise?

On a semi-related note; please make a Shattered Grid or Lord Drakkon series!
