    OFFICIAL LIONSGATE / SABAN BRANDS PRESS RELEASE!

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF), a leading global entertainment company, and Saban Brands, a strategic brand management company that acquires and builds global consumer brands, are partnering to develop and produce an original live action feature film based on the iconic Power Rangers property, it was announced today by creator of Power Rangers Haim Saban and Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. The announcement marks another step in Lionsgate's continued commitment to build a broad portfolio of branded properties and franchises with global appeal.

    Saban launched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a live action television series more than 20 years ago, and the series has been in continuous production ever since. It has subsequently grown into one of the world's most popular and recognizable brands, with toys, apparel, costumes, video games, DVD's, comic books and other merchandise.

    The two companies noted that, with an extensive and extremely devoted worldwide fan base as well as a deep and detailed mythology, the Power Rangers are primed for the big screen. The new film franchise will re-envision the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique and cool super powers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.

    "Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level," said Saban. "They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from The Hunger Games to Twilight and Divergent. In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we're confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own."

    "We're thrilled to be partnering with Haim Saban and his team to maximize the potential of this immensely successful and universally recognized franchise," said Feltheimer. "The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever. We have the ideal partner and the perfect brand with which to create a motion picture event that will resonate with moviegoers around the world for years to come."

    ABOUT SABAN'S POWER RANGERS

    Saban's Power Rangers franchise is the brainchild of Haim Saban, creator and producer of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers hit series that launched in 1993. Following its introduction, Power Rangers quickly became the most-watched children's television program in the United States and remains one of the top-rated and longest running boys live-action series in television history. The series follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who "morph" into superheroes and save the world from evil. It is seen in more than 150 markets around the world, translated into numerous languages and is a mainstay in the most prominent international children's programming blocks.

    Personally, I'd rather have a Dino Charge pilot film or a stand alone film based on Go-Busters (whose characters can then appear in Dino Charge without screwing up the canon.)

    I'd rather they left Morphin alone. But that's just me.

    It should have the visuals of Pacific Rim, for Ranger shit, and Pan's Labyrinth for Rita Repulsa shit.

    Tone of the writing and acting should be Speed Racer.

    Anyone else who says otherwise is objectively wrong.

    I kind of agree with Blueprodigy. I think they should leave MMPR alone. While it will be cool to see MMPR done RIGHT as a movie (I have faith that Lionsgate won't fuck it up as bad as that other company did with the original movie), I'm scared that Saban will use this as an excuse to never have any of the original Morphin' actors and actresses appear in the show again. I think Saban needs to come right out and say that the MMPR Movie will be it's own universe like the original. Also, if this is rebooting the Movie-verse, does that mean MMPR will now have two Movie-verses?

    They should also come out and say Power Rangers is a fictional show. Stop pussyfooting around Saban!
