Disney Sells The Power Rangers…Finally!

I want you to take a good look at the picture below and then continue reading below.

Power Rangers

Does this look like Disney? Did it EVER look like Disney? I remember being completely shocked when in 2001 Disney bought the Power Rangers franchise from Japanese Media Mogul Haim Saban for $5.1 billion (yes a B)! I know that some kids LOVE the Power Rangers but, for the life of me, I can’t see why. The Power Rangers have to be the lamest looking superheros to ever throw a punch. How can the picture above strike fear into any villian?

Well, it seems that Disney has realized the same thing as they’ve sold back the Power Rangers to Haim Saban. Disney spokesman Jonathan Friedland said, “From our perspective, it just doesn’t fit into our long-term programming strategy or with the Disney brand.

However, new owner Saban Brands, already has plans for a new movie and worked a deal with Nickelodeon to show both old and new episodes.
