Saban’s Power Rangers was certainly no success in 2017, both critically and at the box office, making $142 million worldwide on a $100 million budget. However, some fans were still hoping they would see the actors reprise the main roles in the next Power Rangers movie.
That does not appear to be the case, as Stranger Things star Dacre Montgomery (he played Red Ranger) has revealed in a Reddit Q&A that the cast won’t be back. “I think there is a movie in the works, but it’s not with me and the cast,” he said when asked if we were getting more Power Rangers movies. “So yes, but not with us,” he added.
As was previously revealed, Hasbro has bought the rights to the property from Saban and is moving forward with the next movie.
The 2017 movie was released by Lionsgate, directed by Dean Israelite, and also stars RJ Cyler as Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott as Pink Ranger, Becky G as Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin as Black Ranger. The cast includes Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Banks as well.
Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.
