The Power Rangers from Entertainment One are making their way to Netflix. After Hasbro subsidiary eOne appointed Jonathan Entwistle to oversee a Power Rangers cinematic universe of interconnected film and television adaptations, Entwistle confirmed Hasbro’s PRCU will be available on Netflix.
Netflix will be the home of eOne Television’s planned Power Rangers expansion of “several shows and movies,” including Entwistle’s previously announced 1990s-based feature picture revival originally lined up at Paramount Pictures, according to Deadline.
“Since we set up Power Rangers with Jonathan, we pitched really a whole-world approach,” Michael Lombardo, eOne’s President of Global Television, told Deadline. “It’s not just one show, it is shows followed by films, some kids’ programming. We have found a great writing partner for him, they are off. Knock on wood, Netflix is excited, we’re excited, we hope to have some news soon.”
Reacting to the news, Entwistle tweeted Monday, “I guess the cat’s out of the bag! The new Power Rangers universe is coming to Netflix.”
