Los Angeles - The Power Rangers are coming to the big screen.



The super-powered kids protecting the world from evil are heading to cinemas under a new deal announced by film studio Lionsgate and Saban Brands, which launched the series on television more than 20 years ago.

"The Power Rangers stories and characters have been embraced by generations of audiences for more than 20 years, and today they are more powerful than ever," said Lionsgate chief executive Jon Feltheimer.

No details were given about who would direct the movie or when it would be released.
