And Now A Message From The Power Rangers
If you've ever watched an episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
, chances are you may have caught one of the public service announcements at the end of each show. Moving along in the vein of announcements, according to Dave McNary over at Variety
, a franchise reboot of the hugely successful TV show is officially in the works thanks to an agreement between Power Rangers
power producer, Haim Saban, and Lionsgate, studio behind other hugely successful franchises from Twilight
to The Hunger Games
1993 was the year Saban launched the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
live-action series, which has been in continuous production for well over 20 years, packaged and repackaged under different names. The current series being Power Rangers Super Megaforce
, which debuted in February.
The first Power Rangers
movie was produced by Saban and released in 1995; it was largely successful, taking in well over $60 million at the box office. Its 1997 successor, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie
, also produced by Saban, took in only $9 million and effectively stifled any future film plans for other iterations of the Rangers. That is, until now.
