The news comes on the heels after a postponed live tour that the franchise attempted in 2018, called Power Rangers Live!. Power Rangers Live! was one of the final projects launched under Saban Brands, the previous owners of the Power Rangers brand, to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. The project’s conception sadly never made it to fruition.
