power rangers

While the ‘Power Rangers’ reboot film failed to lived up to most fans’ and critics’ expectations earlier this year, it may have done just well enough in total combined income – particularly from merchandising and toy sales – to warrant production company Lionsgate to work with property owner Saban Entertainment to push forward a second film.

In a recent interview, director Dean Isrealite summed up his thoughts on whether a sequel might happen:

“I hope so. It’s obviously not up to me, but I know the studio (Lionsgate) and Saban are talking in earnest about it, and are trying to push forward. They’re having a discussion.”

To hold fans over on this tidbit of potential big news for the franchise, we have 20 deleted scenes from the film!  This is a mega-video compilation, so grab a quick snack and sit down to get a good look at what didn’t quite make it on-screen (description of each scene below the video, along with the film’s synopsis).

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

‘Power Rangers’ is now available on DVD/Blu-Ray and home video.
