Warning: Potential Power Rangers spoilers ahead
With a box office debut that beat expectations and a plan for six films from Haim Saban’s production company, Saban Entertainment, one’s not putting the cart before the horse if they start talking about a sequel to Power Rangers. When the cast stopped by Yahoo Movies’ Los Angeles studios, we asked them what they would like to see in a second movie.
“I think the most interesting thing for me would be, where we left off, the stakes being raised even more, to a global scale could be kind of fun,” said Dacre Montgomery, who plays the Red Ranger. “Also, you know, we hint at the idea of Tommy Oliver, whoever that is, and that could be fun as well, adding a new dynamic in the group.”
RJ Cyler said he is looking for his character, the Blue Ranger, to make a connection of the romantic variety. “I want to see Billy find love,” he shared. “But what would be really cool is if whatever next person is added to the group, if they do go that route, if that is Billy’s love interest. That would be cool, to be like, ‘Hey, Billy’s a nerd who found another…”
“Little thing,” said Becky G., who plays the Yellow Ranger, finishing Cyler’s thought.
Yahoo Movies’ Khail Anonymous asked the gang about characters from the series not seen in the movie, such as bullies Bulk and Skull. “I think it’s kind of fun to leave antagonists that have been used in the show, you know, to potentially come up if there was a sequel,” said Montgomery. “It gives you more room to work with.”
“We left enough Easter eggs in there to suffice,” added Ludi Lin, who plays the Black Ranger.
“We’re building a foundation,” agreed Becky G.
