Hasbro In New Power Rangers Movie Talks With Paramount

The Power Rangers are coming back to a movie theater near you!

On today’s Q4 earnings call, the new owner of the Power Rangers brand, Hasbro, confirmed that they are in talks with Paramount to produce a new Power Rangers movie.

Hasbro is best known for working with Paramount to produce all of the recent Transformers movies, including Bumblebee, which released in December 2018.

At this time, it is not publicly confirmed whether or not the movie will be a sequel to Lionsgate’s feature film released in 2017, or a reboot the movie franchise entirely.

The news hardly comes as a surprise as Hasbro owns franchises including Transformers, My Little Pony, and G.I. Joe – all of which Hasbro granted major motion picture releases to in recent years.

Much to the dismay of Power Rangers fans, 2017’s feature film under-performed at the box office after bringing in just over $140 million globally, putting any plans for potential sequels into question. Hasbro could choose to find success by rebooting the movie franchise entirely – with a new cast, new suit designs, new Zords, and more.

Fans will have to stay tuned to find out exactly what Hasbro has planned for Power Rangers on the big screen in conjunction with their plans for Power Rangers Beast Morphers – the 26th season of Power Rangers premiering on Nickelodeon in 2019.

Hasbro recently acquired the Power Rangers property in full from Saban Brands for $522 million in early May 2018 (recap here).

2017’s Saban’s Power Rangers movie follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world- is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

Starring Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott, Dacre Montgomery, RJ Cyler, Elizabeth Banks, and Bryan Cranston, Saban’s Power Rangers is available on home video now.

  1. Well this will be interesting as Viacom owns Paramount and Nickelodeon, so this could also be released as a Nickelodeon film.

  2. plz reboot entirely and do not make it a sequel to 2017 ‘s Power Rangers that it was a failure, The reboot is suggest to included or invite original cast from MMPR for cameo appearance,

  3. I’d prefer not to see a reboot, but if they have to it needs to be something original, no adapting any of Japans work.

  4. Yesss! Haven’t been on the site in days and to wake up from a good nap and see this! Yes I am hyped!

    Agree with lots of comments here, megazords were horrendous and a reboot for true fans would be appreciated. If they don’t completely reboot it, give us the best parts.
    I personally would have preferred the black ranger to be of some kind of African or darker toned American background. Adam was great, but Zack was OG perfection. Dude still exudes that swag.

    Keep the movie true. Fav scene was when the zords were hurdling towards Angel Grove and the theme song started! Beauty and nostalgia…they just killed it….until they got silly and had billy the smartest ranger, running backwards. Not this time. I also hope they keep the “political acceptance” out of it this time around. No gay, lesbian or omg trans rangers….I’ll boycott that sooo hard.
    Glad to see so many happy fans. I am one of them. Let’s follow this all the way. I’ll be there opening night for sure.
    Ranger Power all day.

    1. Amen to that, you’re a true Power Rangers fan. Glad I wasn’t the only one who boycotted the first movie, I hate political correctness with a passion, but the SJWs will always defend it because that’s how they’ve been conditioned to think. Keep fighting the good fight, and let’s hope the next Power Rangers movie does the franchise justice!

    2. I agree. Also don’t make the same mistake by not incorporating the wrist communicators, Power Morphers, teleportation to and from the command center and other locations, and more Senes of them actually fighting as rangers and there normal self. In other words take a page out of the original power rangers movie that was the BEST one.

  5. So cool to get a new movie. I hope they put in a autistic character like Billy from the first movie again. Having someone on the spectrum yet not have it prevent them from doing great things and having a normal life is one of the things I really liked from the 2017 movie especially since my brother has autism and yet he is just like everyone else

  6. Don’t need a reboot. The past movie was good enough, it just had an unrealistic expected return considering it’s budget. Lots of praise was given to the characters in the 2017 film, so it makes sense to keep them.

    What does need to be done is improve the action sequences: more morphed fights/screentime, and a more classical zord redesign. It goes without saying to introduce Tommy and Zedd too.

    Keep these in mind, scale back the suit designs to keep the film lower budget, and with some good writing and creativity they’d be able to pull a Wrath of Khan. Infact, it’s a ripe setup for such a thing.

    1. The past movie underpreformed at the box office, if they make a sequel, they will most likely lose money, It would be better to make a reboot and start fresh. “Lots of praise” doesn’t equate to box office success. Justice League also had “Lots of praise” and look at the box office results. Ben Affleck isn’t even Batman anymore.

  7. Hope hasbro makes a movie with more action. But one of the few good things from the first film was making the rangers have a rough and tough personalities rather than have them be perfect angels from the original tv series so hope Hasbro can give the characters personalities like those

    1. Saban’s Power Rangers was an origins film. If they stuck with a sequel, they could easily make a more action packed movie. The Power Rangers now being able to morph, would be able to do it whenever. I think they could do away with them having to be standing on the Morphing Grid, because Billy wasn’t on the Morphing Grid when he morphed for the first time. It could just be for the first time they morph. Then they could morph anywhere they please in the second movie.

  8. How exactly would going with Paramount not 100% guarantee that it’s gonna be a reboot? Can Paramount even use Lionsgate’s formula if they planned on doing a sequel? I honestly would much rather see a sequel to Saban’s Power Rangers, than see a reboot. Dacre Montgomery, Ludi Lin, RJ Cyler, Becky G and Naomi Scott did an awesome job as the Power Rangers team! Bryan Cranston changing roles, going from voicing monsters and doing Zordon was awesome! He’s an older person now and Zordon is a mentor. Bryan Cranston would make for a good mentor for lots of people with his age, so being Zordon suits him! I love the awesome advanced tech designs they used for the suits and the Zords! Elizabeth Banks did a fantastic job as Rita Repulsa. Making her extra scary! The next plans were to make Lord Zedd the main villain for PR2! His design is already enough to scare young children. So imagine what they could do with Lionsgate’s formula!

    Tommy Oliver can also be introduced. He can make for a good cursed side villain and his entire story of being cursed, having the Green Ranger powers, having the curse broken by Jason breaking the Sword of Darkness, Rita Repulsa lighting the green candle (don’t think she died, considering she was only frozen. She could’ve been sent to the moon by the Megazord. Hehe!), Tommy handing his Power coin over to Jason, Zordon giving him temporary Powers and then Lord Zedd having him wear out those Powers by having him fight lots of putties! Dragonzord and Titanus could be introduced in this movie and they get the Mega Dragonzord and the Ultrazord!

    Then when movie 3 rolls around (assuming we get a sequel), Tommy gets his White Ranger Powers and becomes the leader. This would trigger Jason being jealous of Tommy, complaining and fighting with Tommy, wanting to keep his leadership. Then he would eventually get over it and would they would band together to fight the villains. With Lord Zedd taking over, the Power Rangers would have uncontrollable Zords, but would regain access to them. Then they would be able to transform them into the Thunderzords! They could bring in Tor and have the Thunder Ultrazord!

  9. I do think that they need a reboot. While ok, Saban’s 2017 movie missed so many things. A regular morphin sequence for one. They released a morpher toy, but did not show them using their morphers. The megazord looked like it was meant for a “Transformers” movie. The mixing around of the Characters (both personalities and colors) felt flat and that they were trying to check every box in the social diversification and PC list. They had extremely little morphed fighting sequence and NO powered but non-morphed fighting. All and all I think a sequel would probably just compound it. Where a reboot, even a soft reboot could fix the mistakes.
