The highly anticipated Power Rangers movie is finally in theaters. And if it’s up to the franchise’s creator, Haim Saban, this will only be the first of many.
In an interview with Variety, Saban declared his commitment to the brand’s new cinematic universe by stating that a story arc for up to six movies is already laid out.
“We already have a six-movie story arc. If this film is as successful as I hope on March 24, on March 25 we’ll have the first story meeting for Movie No. 2.”
While Saban and Lionsgate may have a plan to fulfill six movies, their fruition to reality obviously hinges on the film’s ability to succeed financially. The movie has already received an incredibly positive reception from moviegoers of all ages.
Among the obvious directions the Power Ranger’ cinematic universe will go is towards the introduction of Tommy Oliver, the iconic Green Ranger, as hinted in the closing moments of the Power Rangers movie. Fans will also be looking for the introduction of Lord Zedd, the grim arch-nemesis of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers from the 1990’s TV show.
But no matter which characters come enter the fold down the road, Saban considers it equally important to stay true to the franchise’s roots, which includes further development for the core five Power Rangers already introduced, and continued strong visual effects.
“The effects are part of the movie. We also are developing likable characters. They don’t take themselves too seriously, in terms of how they relate. I wanted the movie to say that losers or weirdos, by coming together, can realize the importance of the responsibility on their shoulders.”
Saban also stated his belief that Power Rangers could once again be something big – something that Disney was never able to achieve when they owned the franchise from 2002-2009, prior to Saban re-purchasing the property.
“I monitored from a distance what they (Disney) were doing. I think Disney never really got its arms around the value of the franchise.”
Saban’s Power Rangers movie is in theaters now. Be sure to follow Power Rangers NOW on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates.

I love saban power rangers movie it awesome and great I like the heroes that save angel grove now its time for power rangers 2 with the new green ranger in the second chapter of the series go go power rangers see you in 2019 this is a new beginnings of power rangers its morphin time
I would really want to be in the next power rangers Moive
The second movie should start off with another flashback, then have lord zed is awakened on the moon, where Rita frozen body end up being found and also introduce scorpina. Rita’s power coin should have been lost some where on earth, Which tommy ends up retrieving the 6th power coin and become the 6th ranger, but the 6th coin was still apart of Rita, making her able to have partial control over tommy. not only do the ranger have to find the zeo Chrystal and protect it from Rita n zed along with scorpina and goldar, they also have to find away to purify the green power coin, which the would in the peak of the movie when the rangers find a source to turn the green power coin into the white power coin making tommy the white ranger, fast forward the ranger ends up locating the zero crystal and destroy scorpina and goldar for good. Leaving Rita in zed for the 3rd movie along with the machine empire
Like the ones from power rangers zeo. I see the rangers that defeat the evil king mondo and these robots. What about a end clip scene that I see Jason Frank & Amy Jo Johnson has met the masked rider?
Yes the 3rd movie should end with the Rita and zed destroying the command center causing the rangers to also lose power within the power coins, but being as tho the ranger would have hidden the zero crystal, it would have restored the command center and the remains of the crystals would have been given to the ranger making them the zero rangers. On the other hand we have the machine empire who have set an immediate attack on the moon Obliterating Rita and zed castle. After Rita in zed destroyed the rangers command center they was contacted by one of the putties that they were under attach ending the 3rd movie with the machine empire throwing Rita and zed in a dark whole and now leaving the zed rangers to have to face the machine empire. As far as tommy and Kimberly they could also be tied in the movie some way and they could also ad another bully and make the one that was bullying billy bulk and bring in a scull
