'Power Rangers' reboot that's set in the 90s is in development
Nostalgia is the drug of the moment, and everyone loves to travel back in time to relive their own childhood. If you were a kid growing up in the nineties, then the Power Rangers were the best thing to watch on TV.
So if you're one of those nineties kids, then I have good news for you. Soon, you will be able to go back in time to 1993 with a new Power Rangers reboot movie.
Check out this scene from Power Rangers Ninja Storm:
Per ComicBook.com, the series is developed by Jonathan Entwistle (creator of Netflix's The End of the F***ing World) and produced by Paramount and Hasbro, the movie will feature elements of time travel and send the characters back to the heyday of the series: the 1990s.
The previous film in the franchise, Dean Israelite's 2017 reboot, was a flop, both critically and commercially. It was initially planned to be the first of a franchise before going on to gross just $147m worldwide, $85.36m of which came domestically. The movie is intended to compete with the latest line of Transformers toys, which have sold far more due to the Michael Bay-directed movies.
Commenting on the new Power Rangers toys, chief executive of Hasbro Brian Golden stated: "Sure. Well, the launch of Power Rangers is starting in North America ... We had some products ship in Q1, but limited. It will roll out in the subsequent quarters, both in North America and around the world. I'm very pleased with the ratings of the new show. It's a ratings leader in its time slot. It's offering a very strong lead out."
He added: "The team has done a great job in producing this transition from Saban to our own studio has been seamless, and I give the team a lot of credit for producing such a high quality show that's really beloved by kids and improved in a number of ways from the last production."
