Nineties kids, prepare for a wave of nostalgia as it’s been confirmed that the Power Rangers are coming back for a new TV series AND a film.
Prepare to introduce a whole new generation to your favourite superheroes.
EntertainmentOne confirmed they’re coming back with a new TV series and film.
In a surprise move, the director has been confirmed as Jonathan Entwistle, who you might know for his work on I Am Not Okay With This and The End Of The F***ing World – could we be getting a darker twist?
eOne executives Nick Meyer and Michael Lombardo told Variety: “Jonathan has an incredible creative vision for this iconic and hugely successful franchise, and is hands down the right architect to join us as we reimagine the television and film worlds of this property.”
They continued: “Across our slate, we are looking forward to working with the most talented storytellers as we take on Hasbro’s rich fan-favourite brands and build entertainment universes around them.”
Entwistle said: “This is an unbelievable opportunity to deliver new Power Rangers to both new and existing generations of awaiting and adoring fans.
“We’ll bring the spirit of analog into the future, harnessing the action and storytelling that made this brand a success.
“I’m looking forward to working with the teams at eOne and Hasbro. Together, we can’t wait to share more Power Rangers with the world very soon.”
If you’ve never heard of The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (to give them their full name) featured teenagers discovering powers working under the guidance of Zordon, teaming up to save the world from Rita Repulsa and her evil forces.
