In my opinion, one sad casualty of 2017 was the Power Rangers film. Sure, the film wasn’t the greatest thing in the world, but I thought it did a lot of things right, and it somehow managed to bring the overall spirit of Power Rangers to the big screen without it being a campy, spandex-driven escapade like the series.
For a while, it seemed as though the studio had given up on potentially doing a sequel, and though we reported as such, we were immediately compelled to print a retraction from the studio, and that that the franchise was “as strong and enthusiastic about its future as ever.”
Now, Hasbro has announced that they have acquired the Power Rangers property in its entirety.

Of course, this applies to stuff like toys (as one would expect from Hasbro), but what about the TV shows and potential films? From what we can tell, it’s the entire property, meaning that it could very well get another film in the very near future.
As we know, Hasbro has been proactive about their film projects, creating Allspark Pictures as a means to produce their own films. So far, their big partner has been Paramount, and with their relationship only growing stronger, it’s not crazy to think a new film announcement could be around the corner (Though that’s admittedly speculation).
