Default RIP Saban Brands

Yes you read the title right. Saban Brands will be dissolving this Summer due to Hasbro's purchase of Power Rangers. Saban Capital Group will still remain in operation.

60 employees will be laid off due to the closure.

Its a shame for the employees. But with Saban selling PR, the writing was on the wall. Saban Brands was originally created to manage Power Rangers.

No! This is awful! I just don't get it. Saban could have built a new empire to rival Disney. Yet he just stkpped and sold PR. And now he is closing the company? We are screwed now. Without Saban Power Rangers will be terrible and will die off.

yup it was inevitable for Saban Brands to close what I'm wondering about is the various rights that they would have.

Didn't they just sell everything to Hasbro?

This is just a paper move so Saban can focus working on Power Rangers. Hasbro is going to focus on the business side so Saban can focus on the writing.

Unfortunately I don't think this will be the case. Saban is abandoning PR. And its truely from going to be a dark era for the franchise. I am surprised Saban is stepping aside. We know what a control freak he can be.

Saban thinks its time to move on and found a good owner for the brand. He didn't just abandon the franchise. Also he had little to do with the day to day writing.
