This is a surprise. Perhaps the sale will add some “grit” back into the Rangers I grew up with. Then again, it’s just Super Sentai recut with American footage.
Power Rangers never fit with Disney.
I guess this will allow Disney to concentrate more on integrating the Marvel properties =)!
Wait – Disney spent more on Power Rangers than it did on Marvel? I guess I had forgotten how popular they once were.
“Wait – Disney spent more on Power Rangers than it did on Marvel?”
This article is a bit misleading. Disney actually paid $5.2 billion ($3.2 billion in cash and an assumption of $2 billion in debt) for the Fox Family Channel, now called the ABC Family Channel. The rights to the Power Rangers were included in the deal. Disney did not pay more for the Power Rangers than it did for Marvel.
You’re right. My wording was not as clear as it should have been. I’ve updated the article to include the additional details you mentioned. Sorry for any confusion.
I am SO glad that they are getting rid of this franchise. I have never liked it, and am happy it’s finally going away. No loss for me, that’s for sure.
Disney will buy Power Rangers, All Of Saban Brands, Haim And Everything Back! Really!
