Power Rangers sequel not dead (yet), according to director


I've never been shy about my love of the new POWER RANGERS movie. It just hit all the right notes for me, even though it is certainly flawed (with probably the most egregious use of product placement in recent memory). Above all, it had a great cast, cool action, and a decent grasp of the tone - taking itself seriously, but not self-seriously. It's a tough balance, and I think the movie managed it for the most part.

However, with a disappointing box-office return ($85 million domestically on a reported $100 million budget, while flopping completely in China), it seemed the series was DOA. However, with renewed interest in toy sells, and a new show on the air, there might be just enough blood in that stone for a sequel.

Either way, here's what POWER RANGERS director Dean Israelite had to say about the possibility of making a POWER RANGERS sequel in an exclusive interview with ScreenRant:

I hope so. It’s obviously not up to me, but I know the studio (Lionsgate) and Saban are talking in earnest about it, and are trying to push forward. They’re having a discussion.

I mean, obviously nothing definitive, but it is still hopeful that talks are still on-going. Again, the new POWER RANGERS franchise could still be dead in the water, but it's not dead yet! 

Meanwhile, you can see POWER RANGERS on Blu-Ray/DVD and online streaming right now!

Extra Tidbit: I hope they bring in Zedd if the sequel does indeed get off the ground.
