It’s Morphin’ Time As Hasbro Hires Jonathan Entwistle To Oversee ‘Power Rangers’ Movies and TV Universe

The Power Rangers franchise is getting a massive reboot, one so big that it will bring the movies and television series into a connected universe.

According to THR, director Jonathan Entwistle (I Am Not Ok With This) will be the mastermind behind Hasbro’s new adaptations of films and TV shows. Entwistle will oversee, direct both films and TV properties through Hasbro eOne subsidary.

In a joint statement eOne’s film president Nick Meyer and global television president Michael Lombardo said:

“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.”

Fans of Lionagate’s gritty 2017 Power Rangers reboot had still been holding out hope (myself included) that we would once again see the talented cast return for more adventures, but it’s not meant to be. But I think with Entwistle in charge we’re about to see something that will appeal to us all and he shared his excitement.

“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.”

For me, Power Rangers should be up there with the other superhero properties. It has lots of potential and I think the comics more so have shown that over the last few years. Let’s hope they can bring that kind of excitement to big and small screen. Go go Power Rangers……
