This is the era of sequels, prequels and remakes. Viewers are finding that a movie can quickly become two, three, four or more. Haim Saban, the man largely behind the rise of Power Rangers in the 1990s, is producing the next Power Rangers movie, and has ambitious plans for the original series on the big screen.
In a recent interview, Saban revealed that there is “an arc of six-story stories” already set for the Rangers.
“Think of movies like Jungle Book and Arrival. The effects are amazing. So young people expect more? I bet they will, and they will. ”
Beyond the younger generation that Saban and others have in mind, there is also the nostalgia factor that will appeal to older viewers, with this we refer to viewers who enjoyed the original television series when it first premiered.
If Power Rangers proves to be the success Saban thinks he will be, he and his team are ready to go back to history as soon as possible.
