It’s been over two years since Saban’s Power Rangers movie hit theaters, and for the first time ever, fans can check out rejected logo designs.
The logos were created by artist Shawn Michael Yanez, and eventually turned down by Lionsgate and Saban Brands before their rebooted film launched in 2017.
Judging by the rejected designs below, most feature a lightning bolt, implying that the icon was of utmost importance to Lionsgate when deciding to give the franchise’s logo a facelift.
While some of the designs seem similar to what ended up being the final product, fans can see some versions below that would have been very far out there from what the Power Rangers brand has historically stuck to.
Of course shortly after the movie’s launch, Hasbro acquired the property from Saban Brands, giving the franchise its first new owner in almost a decade.
Since then, Hasbro has been in talks with Paramount about a new Power Rangers movie, although the chances of it being a sequel to Lionsgate’s 2017 movie remain slim. It’s more likely that Hasbro and Paramount will choose to reboot the movie universe with a new story, and a new cast. (Click here to recap Hasbro’s new movie discussions with Paramount).
Saban’s Power Rangers 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.
