Hasbro Reportedly Planning 'Power Rangers' Movie Reboot, with New Cast

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Hasbro and Paramount Pictures were in talks to produce a new Power Rangers movie inspired by the iconic television series, though there was no indication as to whether or not the project would be a sequel to the 2017 Saban’s Power Rangers film or a reboot.


Fans may now have their answer, courtesy of Dacre Montgomery, who played Jason, the Red Ranger, in the 2017 movie. The actor recently held a Reddit AMA session for Season 3 of Stranger Things (in which he plays Billy Hargrove) and was asked whether fans would see another Power Rangers movie. Montgomery stated, "I think there is a movie in the works, but it's not with me and the cast. So yes but not with us," which suggests a reboot is currently in development.

The 2017 film, directed by Dean Israelite, centers on a group of teenagers who discover an ancient, alien spacecraft and the consciousness of one of the ancient Rangers. They train and fight together to stop Rita Repulsa from using a powerful crystal to destroy the Earth and all life on it. Power Rangers was filmed on a budget of $100 million and grossed $142.3 million worldwide. Critic and audience reviews for the movie were mixed.

While this seems to be confirmation that a Power Rangers reboot is in the works, no details have been released regarding who the new cast members could be, or what the story would be about.

Hasbro is best known for working with Paramount to produce all of the recent Transformers movies, including Bumblebee, which released in December 2018. Hasbro has also granted Paramount Pictures major motion picture releases to franchises such as My Little Pony and G.I. Joe in recent years. The new Power Rangers movie also could also be released under the Nickelodeon Movies label, as both Nickelodeon and Paramount are owned by Viacom, and Nickelodeon airs the Power Rangers series.

Jason David Frank Releases Trailer for New Power Rangers-Inspired Film, 'Legend of the White Dragon'

Power Rangers alum Jason David Frank has unveiled the debut trailer for Legend of the White Dragon, a new film inspired by Power Rangers that the actor is aiming to secure funding for through Kickstarter.


Frank is seeking to raise $500,000 for the planned movie, which will unite several other fan-favorite franchise stars in a mega mass-up across the Morphin Grid from the Bat in the Sun (Super Power Beat Down) production house. The Kickstarter has raised over $85,000 at the time of writing and will center around a Ranger rebellion recruiting Frank's Tommy Oliver, aka the Green Ranger.

The official synopsis of Legend of the White Dragon is:

"In the Aftermath, the city was left decimated. A past reminder of the great battle and fall of heroes. As a result of the death and destruction the city became known as Angel Graves. The heroes were blamed, stripped of their titles and hunted. But as evil once again threatens to return they must rise from the ashes with the power of the White Dragon."

The four-minute trailer sees the rebels asking Tommy to fight a mysterious overlord in the Citadel of Angel Graves, which fans speculate could be Lord Zedd or an evil Green Ranger. Calling Tommy "the key," they confirm he's their only hope, not to mention the only chance of his daughter's rescue. This leads to him accepting a Morphin crystal from the team and turning into the White Dragon before flying away to begin the mission.



This unofficial Power Rangers project also includes Jason Faunt (Power Rangers Time Force), Johnny Yong Bosch (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce), Chrysti Ane (Power Rangers Ninja Steel) and Yoshi Sudarso (Power Rangers Dino Charge). Frank's daughter Jenna also stars, presumably as Tommy's daughter.

Super Power Beat Down directors Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke will be helming the film, with fight choreography done by Alvin Hsing, who has previously done choreography for Marvel's Netflix shows.

More information about the project:

"It is important that we deliver what the fans want and deserve and Kickstater allows us to do just that! This way we remain 100% in control of the project, giving us the freedom to create a compelling story, intense action sequences, and spectacular visual effects without any studio telling us no. We can't wait to deliver an awesome film experience!

Meet our amazing team we have assembled!

The cast: Jason David Frank, Johnny Yong Bosch, Jason Faunt, Ciara Hannah, Yoshi Sudarso, Chrysti Ane, and Jenna Frank!
The crew: The amazing team behind Super Power Beat Down, directors Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke! Along with fight choreographer, Alvin Hsing, who has choreographed for Marvel's Netflix shows!


Our main goal is $500,000. This will allow us to produce an amazing film but if we are able to raise more it would gives us the ability to expand our story, build out set locations, deliver even greater action sequences and have bigger effects! A lot goes into making a great film, so the more money we raise the more exhilarating we can make the project. Thank you so much for your support!

We just want to say thank you again and we look forward to creating something amazing together!"

The Tioga Sequoia Brewing Company to Host SpongeBob 20th Anniversary Tribute on Friday, July 19, 2019

Fresno, California - SpongeBob SquarePants launched July 17, 1999, and has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and countless memes, theatrical releases, BuzzFeed quizzes, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical (which is about to embark on a nationwide tour) and a global, multi-generational fan base.


It's safe to say that SpongeBob SquarePants holds a huge amount of sway with fans of all ages. Enough to merit a cameo at this year’s Superbowl, at the behest of a million-plus fans mourning the death of show creator Stephen Hillenburg.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants, the Tioga Sequoia Brewing Company in Fresno, California will be hosting a tribute to one of the most iconic TV series and characters ever created on Friday, July 19, 2019!

“I can honestly say SpongeBob has had an influential presence on me over the last 20 years,” Michael Cruz, president of Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co., which hosts a tribute to all things SpongeBob at its beer garden Friday night, told The Fresno Bee.

Tioga’s SpongeBob event is being put on in conjunction with the arts collective Wyse Fools and Fresno Street Eats, and will feature a Krabby Patty Showdown (there’s a trophy and everything) along with a recreation of the Krusty Krab diner.

“We want to create an area for people to feel like they are eating their food at the actual restaurant, along with an area to take pictures with SpongeBob and Squidward,” says Anthony Gonzalez with Wyse Fools.

On the beer front, Tioga is offering a pineapple-themed beer slushie and two new SpongeBob-inspired brews: the Jellyfish Hunter Pineapple Gose and a Wumbo Pink Guava IPA. Both will be available on draft and in cans to go. There will also be limited-run glassware and T-shirts, Cruz says.

On-air, Nickelodeon celebrated the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants with the debut of “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout” on Friday, July 12, 2019, which kicked off the "Best Year Ever", Nickelodeon's year-long global celebration commemorating 20 years of SpongeBob SquarePants, one of the most iconic TV series and characters ever created, which includes the launch of the official SpongeBob SquarePants YouTube channel, brand-new merchandise and a app, and will lead up to the Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge, coming 2020.

Spongebob 20th Anniversary Tribute Details: 3 p.m. Friday. Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co., 745 Fulton St. Free. All ages. 559-486-2337, tiogasequoia.com

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea..... July 19th we will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants with a party. We will have a number of food trucks on site participating in our Krabby Patty Showdown and you will get to vote who made the best one. We will have games for the whole family and we will even have a spot where you can take pictures as if you were in Bikini Bottom. Keep on the look out for more details and sneak peaks about some of the specials for this awesome occasion.

Josh Peck Spills Details on Upcoming Project With Drake Bell | KCA 2019

Update (17/6) - Drake Bell today hinted in his Instagram Stories that the return of Drake & Josh could be much closer than first thought, posting a screenshot from Drake & Josh with the caption "2019"!:


What do you think the post means? Let me know in the comments!

Original post (published Sunday, March 24, 2019):

Josh Peck's upcoming project with Drake Bell is not a Drake & Josh reboot.


Entertainment Tonight's kid correspondent, Devin Trey Campbell, spoke with the new dad on the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards 2019 Orange Carpet at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California on Saturday, where he spilled details on the collaboration he and Bell have in the works.

"I wouldn't call it a reboot. I think it's just an opportunity for Drake and I to be working together again," Peck explained. "Obviously we love each other and we were able to make such an impact on people [with Drake & Josh], so any chance to do something dope together, it's really exciting for me."

"It's going to be good. Y'all will like it," he added.

Speculation over what the former co-stars could be working on intensified last week, when Peck and Bell were spotted seemingly wrapping up a meeting outside the Viacom office in Los Angeles.

"We're trying to go for a Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, same guys, but in a whole new set of scenarios [type of project]," Peck told ET. "I don't know [when it's premiering]. We'll see! ...It's exciting and it's in the works."



A post shared by Josh Peck (@shuapeck) on
Peck also opened up about his friendship with his former Grandfathered co-star, John Stamos, and how they've gotten closer since both becoming dads. Peck welcomed his first child, son Max, with wife Paige O'Brien in December, while Stamos and his wife, Caitlin McHugh, welcomed son Billy last April.

"Actually, John Stamos brought Billy to the hospital to meet Max. So, it was really special. I just can't believe I'm friends with John Stamos! It was a very cute moment, but let's talk about how I have famous friends," Peck joked.

In all seriousness, the former Nickelodeon star is loving being a dad.

"[Max is] like, nonstop cuteness, which is pretty great. But he's already started to appreciate that song 'Baby Shark,' which is scary but also amazing," he said.

See more on Peck in the video here on et.com!

Kel Mitchell on Teaching Amanda Bynes Comedy Tricks and If She'll Make an 'All That' Reboot Cameo

Kel Mitchell on Teaching Amanda Bynes Comedy Tricks and If She'll Make an 'All That' Reboot Cameo

Kel Mitchell is looking back at his time on the beloved Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That, and opening up about what he taught co-star Amanda Bynes.

Mitchell talked with ET Live on the site of the hotly anticipated Good Burger pop-up restaurant in Los Angeles, and he reflected on his happy memories of sharing the screen with Bynes.

"I love Amanda, she's like [my] little sister. She's so fearless," Mitchell, 40, shared about his former co-star, who recently graduated from fashion design school. "I remember her being on set, she told me, 'Hey Kel, I wanna do the physical comedy that you do.' So I used to show her little tricks to do that would make her comedy just awesome."

"She did everything so great, so awesome, she was super fearless," he added.

While Bynes dealt with a rocky few years, she's rededicated herself to her health, fashion school and returning to acting, which Mitchell said seems like a great fit for the 33-year-old actress.

"She always had style, so going to fashion school was definitely what was up," he said, beaming.

As for the possibility of welcoming Bynes on for a cameo appearance on the long-awaited upcoming All That reboot, Mitchell was wildly excited about the idea.

"That would be crazy! We really want her to do a cameo in All That. We've been talking about that," Mitchell explained. "So, Amanda, come on, girl! Call ya brother up!"

Kel Mitchell Reveals If Amanda Bynes Will Appear On ‘All That’ Reboot — ‘We’re Talking To Her’

With the ‘All That’ reboot in full swing, will fans see Amanda Bynes return to the show that launched her career? ‘Good Burger’ star Kel Mitchell tells us EXCLUSIVELY on how they’re trying to make that happen.

All That is back! The beloved Nickelodeon 90’s sketch comedy show that helped Nick Cannon, Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell become household names returned in June 2019 with a brand new cast. However, some familiar faces – like Josh Server and Lori Beth Denberg — have popped up to give fans of the original series a treat. So, will Amanda Bynes, who got her start on the original All That before getting her own spin-off, make a special cameo on the new show?

Kel Mitchell — who is an executive producer on the reboot, along with Kenan Thompson — talked EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife about the possibility of Amanda’s return while launching The Good Burger Pop Up Restaurant in West Hollywood, California. The co-owner of the hottest burger joint also dished on how the original All That cast stays in contact and the possibility about a Good Burger reboot.

HollywoodLife: How nostalgic is this for you?

Kel Mitchell: It’s been awesome. This is really surreal.

Talk to me about what it’s been like now that all that the reboot is back as well?

To executive produce that — To be producing it with my cast mate that became my brother? It’s just been awesome. We’re having a blast and giving advice to new kids, and the kids are so funny. All seven of them.

Do you and Kenan ever talk about doing just a Good Burger reboot? I’m sure you get asked all the time.

Yes. We have been talking about it. We’re talking about GB too. Just know that we’re ready. We’re ready, but some other people, they a little higher up. They gotta make it happen. But yes, we’re down. We’re totally down for making it happen.

Do you think we’re getting closer to it finally happening?

We are getting very close. The story has to be good. We’ve had a few ideas that we chopped around to make it happen. We’re excited. But until then you could come to The Good Burger Pop Up.

Will we see him here too, or have you guys talked about doing something here together?

Yes. We have talked about it. He is in New York, so he’s like boom. But he will be here because we’ll be here for six months so he’ll be here.

I can’t wait. Have you guys all kept in touch over the… All of you All Thaters?

[Angelique Bates] goes to my church. Lori Beth [Danberg] and Josh [Server]; we have been wanting to do all that; playing around, guest starring a little bit. You know we’ve seen them all, and we all stay in contact on Instagram. So staying in contract with Lisa [Foiles]. Katrina [Johnson], everybody. Yeah. That’s just a whole new cast. Yeah.

Any chance at all we… I mean Amanda Bynes to make an appearance or have you heard from her, Nick Cannon?.

Yes. Amanda just graduated from fashion school, so I’m super excited about that. That’s like my little sister, so I’m excited about that. We would love for her to come on all that; Nick Cannon as well. I talked to Nick yesterday, so we’re excited about that. That’s my boy.

Do you think they both will come on at some point?

Of course.

So exciting. So you guys all keep in touch?

Everybody keeps in touch. Yeah.

So is there a group text? Do you guys get together once a month?

Instagram. We talk through Instagram. We talk through social media. That’s how we all get together.

So this would really be like Amanda’s come back into the industry a little bit for a while. Have you thought about that?

I don’t know if I’ve thought about that, but I think it’d be great. For Amanda to do that. That’d be fun. I mean she’s definitely in fashion school right now, so we’re excited about that. So we’ll just give positive vibes to that.

So she will, or she won’t be? Are you guys figuring out if she would come back?

We’re talking to her. Yeah.

Are you still planning on starting your own Orange Soda Line, and do you still love it?

Yes. I do. I do, but I drink a lot healthier now, so we’re definitely trying to get like an electrolyte or some type of pre-workout. Yeah.

Favorite All That skit over the years?

Of course, “Good Burger.” Since we’re right here, in the Good Burger pop up. I opened up my own restaurant, man.

Do people still come up to you on the street and say, like what-

They do. They come up. They say, “Welcome to Good Burger.” at red lights, all over the place. Yeah.

All That airs weekly on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.

Kel Mitchell On Why Drake Bell Slammed ‘All That’ Reboot — ‘He Was Wrong’

Kel Mitchell talked EXCLUSIVELY to HL about a series of things at the new Good Burger pop up restaurant in West Hollywood, CA, including fellow Nickelodeon star Drake Bell’s negative comments about the ‘All That’ reboot, and he admitted he doesn’t agree with his opinion.

Kel Mitchell, 40, is going back to his Good Burger sketch roots with the new Good Burger pop up restaurant, and during the opening of the location in West Hollywood, CA, he talked about the famous old school All That segment along with his thoughts on fellow Nickelodeon actor Drake Bell‘s recent diss about the show’s reboot. 33-year-old Drake recently made headlines for responding to pics and videos of the new cast of the reboot, which debuted on June 15, and making harsh mocking comments. “This is LITERALLY THE WORST THING I’VE SEEN IN a loooong time!!!” he wrote on Instagram over a photo of the new cast members, whose ages range from 12-15. He also compared them with a pic of the original cast, including Kel, and wrote “Not EVEN CLOSE.”

Although the judgments from Drake, who starred on the All That spinoff, The Amanda Show, made some fans upset, Kel admitted he’s not letting it bother him because he doesn’t agree. “I don’t care. I don’t know. You know what? He’s not really a good fan of All That, you know what I mean?” Kel EXCLUSIVELY told us at the pop up restaurant. “And so, hey, show’s awesome. The ratings prove it that we’re awesome, so he was wrong. You’re wrong Drake Bell.”

Kel has a point. The reboot got a lot of attention when it aired on Nickelodeon and included support and cameo appearances by many of the original cast members, including Lori Beth Denberg, who was known for her popular skit Vital Information, Josh Server, who acted alongside Kel as “Ear Boy” opposite his “Pizza Face”, and of course, Kel himself, who was known for various memorable skits, including Good Burger and Coach Kreeton. The new cast members EXCLUSIVELY told us last month that although it’s reboot with new people, it still follows the premise of the original.

“I feel that the new reboot still stays true to the original, but it’s more modernized with new kids and it still brings back some of the old sketches and the original cast,” new cast member Lex Lumpkin said. “It’s the same old All That with a brand-new cast,” co-star Nathan Janak agreed. “It’s classic sketches, the same type of comedy, with an all-new cast and maybe some even old cast members, too.”

The Good Burger pop up restaurant, which is inspired by the All That sketch, opened on July 10 in Los Angeles, CA and will remain open until the end of 2019.

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Team Up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in New Comic Series from BOOM! Studios

The Power Rangers have crossed over quite a bit with teams from other seasons, but only once before have they crossed over with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That happened during Power Rangers In Space, but the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers are set to team-up for the first time with the heroes in a half-shell thanks to BOOM! Studios' brand new miniseries, and ComicBook has unveiled a Turtley Awesome first look!


Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 (of 5) will be written by Necessary Evil writer Ryan Parrott and drawn by Beyond The Grid artist Simone di Meo, and will have the two iconic teams attempting to survive a world where Shredder and the Green Ranger have combined forces.

As you can see in the gorgeous artwork below, the series will boast a main cover by Power Rangers and Buffy the Vampire Slayer artist Dan Mora, and the series will also feature Turtle Ranger Helmet variant covers by Mighty Morphin Power Rangers cover artist Goni Montes. For Parrott, this is a surreal dream and quite a difficult secret to keep.


"Honestly, I'm pretty certain keeping this project a secret has taken years off my life. These two iconic franchises were my TV parents, each teaching me valuable life lessons thirty minutes at a time. The Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles are too insanely awesome not to bring together. I mean, they're both color-coded teenage martial artists who fight monsters! It just makes too much sense!" said writer Ryan Parrott. "A huge thank you to Hasbro and Nickelodeon for letting me play with so many of their wonderful toys, as it is truly an honor to be a part of such an exciting crossover. I'm the luckiest kid in the world, and I cannot wait for you all to see what we've been putting together."

Simone di Meo returns to Power Rangers after his gorgeous stint on Beyond The Grid, and this is pretty much a dream for him as well.

"It’s an honor to be able to work on this amazing project. I'm very happy to be a part of this, one of the crossovers I've been waiting for since I was a kid,” di Meo said. “Drawing these two teams together is a dream come true!"

As Senior Editor Dafna Pleban explains, this event couldn't be in better hands.

“No one could possibly love the Power Rangers or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles more than the creative team at the helm of this epic event! Which means they’ve got every dream team up scenario you can think of jam-packed into the pages of every issue.” Pleban said “Monsters will grow. Shells will get kicked. And that thing you’re really hoping we’ll do? Yeah, that’s in here, too.”

You can check out the official description for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles below.

"The Power Rangers arrive in New York City to find Tommy Oliver - AKA The Mighty Morphin Green Ranger - but soon discover he's joined forces with the villainous Shredder and the Foot Clan! As the Rangers are sent reeling by this betrayal, they're confronted by another (fr)enemy - the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Can these heroes find a way to work together to defeat the bad guys and save the world from total destruction?!"

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1 hits comic stores on Wednesday, December 4th.

The news follows the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' recent successful comic team up with Batman, which was also turned into an animated movie.
