Power Rangers To Get a Movie Reboot

by 8Ball T Shirts May 08, 2014 0 Comments

This week Lionsgate and Haim Saban announced the Power Rangers will again grace the big screen

Twenty-one years have passed since the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first hit TV screens in the US and now a new live action movie is in the works.

A staple of all 90s kids’ TV diet, the show focuses on a group of teenagers (with radical 90s attitude) trained by a mentor to be Rangers and use special powers and Zords (fighting machines) to defeat evil forces.

In the original series the costumed, action scenes in the show are lifted from the Japanese show ‘Super Sentai’ with the rest of the storyline reworked and filmed locally to avoid using a dubbed or translated version.

Since then the TV series has been rebooted, recast and reworked into nearly 20 different versions featuring alien, ninja, police and jungle style Rangers.

In a statement on the Lionsgate website, Saban had this to say:

“Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level… they have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent.  In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we’re confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own.”

While Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer added:

“The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever.”

There aren’t too many details surrounding the new release as yet but it’s thought that the reboot will “re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers“.

It will be the first time that the Angel Grove teens will get their own movie since 1997 when Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie was released to pretty bad reviews.  This was the sequel to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie in 1995 which generated an impressive $66 million return at the box office from its $15 million budget.
