Hasbro now owns the Power Rangers franchise!

Worlds collided today when Hasbro and Saban Properties LLC today announced that the companies have signed an agreement for Hasbro to purchase Saban’s Power Rangers and several other entertainment brands, including My Pet Monster, Popples, Julius Jr., Luna Petunia, Treehouse Detectives and others, in a combination of cash and stock valued at $522 million.

Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s chairman and chief executive officer stated:

“’Power Rangers’ is an iconic brand built on a heritage of great storytelling and merchandising with tremendous upside potential when fully executed across Hasbro’s Brand Blueprint; shortly after entering into our licensing arrangement, it became clear that now was the time to begin investing in unlocking ‘Power Rangers’ full potential. We see significant opportunity for ‘Power Rangers’ across our entire Brand Blueprint, including toys and games, consumer products, digital gaming and entertainment, as well as geographically throughout our global retail footprint. We couldn’t be more pleased that Haim Saban will continue in a consulting role to further guide our development of this valuable property for the next generation of ‘Power Rangers’ fans.”

Haim Saban, founder of Saban Brands and creator of Power Rangers added:

“25 years after launching ‘Power Rangers,’ I believe the future for this brand has never been greater. Hasbro’s leadership in innovation, storytelling and brand stewardship make it the perfect company to further develop the global reach and appeal of the Power Rangers property. I look forward to working with Brian and the team in the years to come.”

The first set of products from Hasbro will be available in spring 2019.
