The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ next generation will be available on Netflix.
As disclosed by Jonathan Entwistle, Hasbro’s departure from Toei and ownership of Entertainment One will now bring about a new “Power Rangers Cinematic Universe,” uniting the countless seasons of television episodes and movie versions.
“Since we started up Power Rangers with Jonathan, we presented truly a whole-world strategy,” Michael Lombardo, President of Global Television at EOne, told Deadline.
“This is not just one program; it is a series of shows accompanied by films and some children’s programming. We have found him a fantastic writing partner, and they are working together. Touchwood, Netflix is ecstatic, we are ecstatic, and we expect to hear some information soon.”
Netflix has started putting new takes on vintage nostalgic children’s programming.
As a program that thrilled an entire generation in the 1990s, Entertainment One and Hasbro’s collaboration with Netflix is the right move in ensuring that future fans experience the same high degree of excitement from the live-action superhero series.
Power Rangers has been on the air for almost thirty years, serving as a sister program to the Japanese show Super Sentai – it frequently employs the same fight scenes with English dubs to match its tale.
We have witnessed 28 seasons, 21 distinct themes, and three films throughout our three-decade association. It is unclear if Netflix will proceed from this enormous canon or start from scratch to attract new fans, but if it does, there is a great history to work with.
It is unclear which path Netflix will follow, but Hasbro paid $500 million for Power Rangers in 2018, so it is not likely hoping to recoup its investment. Nevertheless, there will be games, entertainment, movies, and more comic book runs.
