The big news is here. Hasbro has acquired the Power Rangers franchise from Saban Brands.

Hasbro had announced that it is purchasing Power Rangers and many other brands like Popples, My Pet Monster, Luna Petunia, Julius Jr., Treehouse Detectives, and many more. The deal which includes stock and cash is being valued at $522 million.

“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,” Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s chairman, and the chief executive officer had said.

“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 HaimSaban will continue in a consulting role to further guide our development of this valuable property for the next generation of Power Rangers fans.”

“25 years after launching Power Rangers, I believe the future for this brand has never been greater,” said HaimSaban, founder of Saban Brands and creator of Power Rangers.

“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.”

Fans will see products from Hasbro by 2019. This is not the first time Saban sold the Power Rangers. It had sold this brand to Disney in 2001 and was then purchased back in 2010. Since then this show has featured Super Samurai, Power Rangers Samurai, Super Megaforce, Megaforce, Dino Super Charge, Dino Charge, Ninja Steel, and Super Ninja Steel.

Hasbro had acquired the toy license for Power Rangers which was held by Bandai America, and now it will be adding the whole brand under its wing.
