POWER RANGERS Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes Released Online; Sequel Talks Not Dead Yet

POWER RANGERS Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes Released Online; Sequel Talks Not Dead Yet

Lionsgate's Power Rangers reboot hits Blu-ray & DVD today and we have all the deleted scenes for you to check out. Plus, director Dean Israelite has shared a small update on the potential sequel.

After a strong start and a solid reception from fans, things were looking up for the Power Rangers, but alas, the good times more or less ended after its opening weekend as the immense competition from heavyweights, Beauty and the Beast, Kong: Skull Island, and Logan, proved to be just a little too much to handle. Ultimately, the Lionsgate production grossed $140.2 million on a $100 million budget, which while not exactly a box office bomb, is far from the numbers it needed to warrant a sequel. 

While it's mostly looked bleak on the sequel front for the past few weeks, there have been recent rumblings that the movie's insane merchandise sales and Lionsgate's reported 25% stake in the production budget could result in a second installment being greenlit. Neither update has provided us with anything directly from the studio, but with the Blu-ray set to release today, the director has weighed in.

In a recent interview with ScreenRant, director Dean Israelite shared his honest thoughts on whether a sequel could actually still happen. “I hope so. It’s obviously not up to me, but I know the studio (Lionsgate) and Saban are talking in earnest about it, and are trying to push forward. They’re having a discussion.” While these comments might not mean much to most, it does at least reveal that the sequel is not out of consideration with the studios just yet.

As for the potential villain, outside of the long-confirmed Green Ranger Tommy Oliver, Israelite revealed to ComicBook, that he would like to introduce the one-and-only Lord Zedd.
