Paramount Pictures is growing the subsequent Power Rangers film (which is unsurprising contemplating the studio’s relationship with Hasbro, which now owns the property), and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway’s Patrick Burleigh is writing the script. His story reportedly entails the Rangers being despatched again to the 1990s, and following within the footsteps of Back to the Future, they need to discover a means again to the current.
Putting this Power Rangers crew within the 1990s positively constitutes returning to the franchise’s roots, as Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers premiered in 1993 and spent many of the remainder of that decade being a popular culture staple. It’s unclear if placing the heroes within the ‘90s is simply a way to honor the past or if there’s a deeper that means to it.
It’ll even be attention-grabbing to see whether or not this new Power Rangers crew is one other rebooted model of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers or if we’re getting an unique crew not primarily based off any of the TV incarnations. If it’s the latter, I can’t assist questioning if these new Rangers might cross paths with variations of the unique Mighty Morphin’ Rangers, thus offering a multi-generational crossover that would enchantment to each longtime followers and newcomers.
The Hollywood Reporter additionally talked about that The End of the F—king World showrunner Jonathan Entwistle is in negotiations to direct the Power Rangers film. The outlet famous that whereas he’s an unconventional selection given how darkish and mature the Netflix collection is, Paramount believes Entwistle has proven he “has a grasp on the voice of the younger generation,” which is able to hopefully translate into “something unique and appealing” for the Power Rangers film.
While there was a quick interval in 2018 when it seemed like a sequel to 2017’s Power Rangers might see the sunshine of day, Dacre Montgomery, who performed Jason the Red Ranger, revealed again in July that he was knowledgeable a brand new film was in growth, but it surely wouldn’t contain him and his cast-mates. While I’d hoped that this subsequent film would at the least be set in the identical continuity because the 2017 film, it’s arduous to inform if that would be the case or if it is a full reset.
Let’s additionally remember that the plot for this new Power Rangers film might change down the road. It’s nonetheless early into the artistic course of, and since Paramount hasn’t set a launch date but, there’s loads of time for Patrick Burleigh to alter the narrative or Jonathan Entwistle so as to add his personal tweaks. Still, with time journey having been a nicely that the Power Rangers have utilized quite a few instances, this may be a singular means for this subsequent film to face out from its predecessor.
