The 2017 film may not have done as well in the box office as many had hoped, but a 'Power Rangers' sequel makes sense if these reactions are anything to go by.
This week, Hasbro confirmed they were working on a sequel to their 2017 'Power Rangers' movie, which rebooted the franchise and brought on the likes of Dacre Montgomery, Becky G, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, and Ludi Lin as the world-saving team of superheroes.
The 2017 cast could be making a comeback!
The news has come as a shock to many, as the flick didn't do quite as well in the box office as many would have predicted or indeed hoped. Still, if these excitable fans on Twitter and their reactions are anything to go by, Hasbro have made the right decision in taking another shot at bringing 'Power Rangers' to the big screen!

This year's big winners included 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri', 'Veep' and 'Big Little Lies' - Los Angeles, California, United States - Sunday 21st January 2018
The actor recently made waves as the Red Ranger in the new 'Power Rangers' movie and Billy in 'Stranger Things'.
For some time, fans of DC have been wondering about who will be taking centre stage in the confirmed upcoming 'Nightwing' solo movie, directed by Chris McKay. Having already seen huge success with 'The LEGO Batman Movie', he's a director who knows how to weave drama and humour together to bring about brilliance on the big screen.
Fans seem keen to see Dacre Montgomery as Dick Grayson
This week, McKay changed his Twitter account to further represent the upcoming film and the DC Comics hero, also known as Dick Grayson, so it would stand to reason that an announcement about the movie is right around the corner. That announcement may have come a little prematurely from 'Power Rangers' and 'Stranger Things' actor, Dacre Montgomery.

Zack Taylor (Ludi Lin), Kimberly Hart (Naomi Scott), Billy Cranston (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G) and Jason Lee Scott (Dacre Montgomery) are five kids with a lot in common; they're all high-schoolers with pretty screwed up lives and going through a lot of the kind of problems that regular teenagers go through. That is until one day, when they stumble across what looks like a long-abandoned spaceship which they somehow manage to accidentally open. Once inside the ship, it soon becomes clear that they are not alone and are very much trapped. It's not the most friendly welcome to their new master as they could have, but they soon realise that Zordon and his robot minion Alpha 5 mean no harm.
In fact, they have chosen these very kids to unite together and become their Power Rangers; superheroes on which the world depends. Of course, they don't believe that they really have super powers at first, but after a series of minor incidents, they are forced to accept their newfound destiny - and quickly because a deadly force is already on the rise led by the dastardly Rita Repulsa.
'Power Rangers' (sometimes known as 'Saban's Power Rangers') is the third and newest movie from the superhero franchise, coming 22 years after 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'. It has been directed by by Dean Israelite ('Project Almanac') with a screenplay written by the Academy Award nominated John Gatins ('Flight', 'Real Steel'), and it is set to be released in theatres on March 24th 2017.

Kimberly Hart, Trini, Jason Lee Scott, Zack Taylor and Billy Cranston are a group of high school kids from Angel Grove who all have their own problems. They are misfits who all find themselves thrust together as a team when they discover some mysterious artifacts that transform them into glowing, uber strong super heroes. Their discovery leads them to Zordon; an ancient being who now survives only as part of the Morphin Grid, and who reveals to them that they have been chosen as this generation's Power Rangers. Together, and with a little help from Zordon's faithful android Alpha 5, they must use their powers and their disguises to save the world from whatever adversary that may lay ahead - unfortunately for them, that comes sooner than anticipated with the villainous villainess Rita Repulsa who threatens to bring them all down. Are these new Rangers equipped to handle their first alien threat?

Go Go Power Rangers! Billy Cranston, Jason Lee Scott, Kimberly Hart, Trini Kwan and Zack Taylor are five kids who are all at Angel Grove high school together. Not one of them is particularly popular and they find themselves being brought together through an equal disdain for the rest of their classmates.
What the five new friends don't realise is that they are soon to become important to everyone on the planet. When the group go off adventuring, they find themselves in an old quarry and uncover the secret that will change all their lives. When they hear sirens, the group flee the area and head back to their homes but in the days following they all realise that their physique has changed significantly and their muscular strength is far superior to any normal human. As they begin to experiment with their new powers, they find they can fight, jump and withstand huge amounts of force.
Their new personal changes are not the only thing the teenagers have to think about, they're also faced with information that will cause a great darkness to be cast over the world. Their little town of Angel Grove is being threatened by a deadly alien force lead by the wicked Rita Repulsa. Though they're young, the five heroes must team together and defend their town - and ultimately the rest of the world - from Repulsa.
