Power Rangers movie sequel reportedly in the works

Published on: 9th August 2018

A sequel to 2017’s Power Rangers is finally moving forward with Paramount and Hasbro.

The Power Rangers made a big return to the big screen last year with the release of Paramount’s live-action reboot. Having achieved a strong home DVD release, Paramount and Hasbro’s All Spark Pictures are now going to develop a sequel to the 2017 film.

The production of a sequel didn’t look likely when Hasbro acquired the Power Rangers property, with reports indicating that a reboot was on the horizon instead.

However, some industry insiders think Hasbro is looking towards the future by banking on the talented cast’s profiles continuing to rise. Dacre Montgomery was a standout of Stranger Things season 2 and is returning for season 3. Naomi Scott is going to be in Disney’s live-action Aladdin and Sony’s Charlie’s Angels reboot next year too. Plus, with a villain and the Green Ranger needed, more star power could come.

Hasbro also stands to benefit from boosted toy sales; Power Rangers toy sales went though the roof last year, and even if all of the success wasn’t entirely due to the popularity of the movie, it is at least a factor.
