In a statement this week for the Hasbro Strategic Decisions Conference, the toy and media company CEO Brian Goldner confirmed the potential for a new Power Rangers movie, among other endeavors relating to the superhero brand in the future. This marks the first time many will hear of official plans for another film at the superhero title’s new home with Hasbro Inc.
TokuNation brings the full quote from Goldner on the possibilities for this long-lasting franchise:
“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.”
It’s unclear if Goldner’s offhanded comments speak toward the possibility of a sequel for the 2017 film from Lionsgate or yet another reboot with new creative energy in the mix, but it’s an encouraging thought for fans hoping for a return to the big screen in the coming years.
