Power Rangers fans, it’s time to rise once again. We’re here to remind you all that Hasbro has not neglected the beloved brand. In fact, the powers that be at Hasbro used their Investor Day to assure fans that they’re only getting started putting the power back in Power Rangers.
Among Hasbro’s iconic brands, plans for Power Rangers‘ future were discussed at this year’s Investor Day. While not much new information was given, the information was still refreshing to hear, especially when they were reiterations or confirmations.
What’s In Store For Power Rangers?
At the Investor Day, Olivier Dumont, eOne’s President of Family Brands stated basically everything mentioned in the tweet above. There’ll be new content for all ages, the upcoming thirtieth season, Cosmic Fury, featuring the returning Dino Fury rangers with major upgrades, and the anniversary special featuring long-awaited returning rangers. It’s also worth mentioning that Dumont confirmed that the anniversary special will be separate from Cosmic Fury
There was no mention of Jonathan Entwistle’s reboot or cinematic universe, but do not panic, that is still happening. Jonathan Entwistle, Jenny Klein, and Bryan Edward Hill are still attached as the director, producer, and writer respectively. We expect it to go into production after Cosmic Fury. The new universe will be out on Netflix.
We should learn more information in the near future. Steve Bertram, eOne’s President of Film and Television stated that there’ll be news regarding upcoming productions in the coming quarters.
