Power Rangers: Hasbro May Cut Ties With Super Sentai Production Company

There¬†is a lot to consider regarding the future of the¬†Power Rangers brand, and for fans, there’s also¬†a lot at stake. For years, they’ve had the close alliance of Saban and Toei to deliver Saturday morning cartoon-esque action-packed television,¬†and their hopes for a slick, modern update of the franchise for the big screen were squandered. Could it have been¬†overzealousness¬†that got in the way? Perhaps, but yet fans¬†are still hopeful that there is room for improvement.

Coming on the heels of the bombshell announcement of an upcoming¬†Power Rangers cinematic universe, the blow of this news¬†shouldn’t¬†be so shocking. It does seem¬†that Hasbro has given this thought:¬†it’s not like¬†they’re deciding on major changes like this without calculated research. There needs to be accessibility for a newer generation, like Alex Kurtzman’s work on his¬†Star Trek¬†TV shows, yet likewise, there needs to be something for the more seasoned viewers. Because fans¬†are, for better or for worse, the gatekeepers of success for a franchise of this caliber, and they won’t let¬†a brand¬†like¬†Power Rangers¬†die out¬†so quickly.
