The Clone Wars has been Saved.

Posted by OujaStrike on July 19, 2018

Today it was announced during San Diego Comic Con Star Wars: The Clone Wars 10th Anniversary Panel that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning for a new season of 12 Episodes on Disney’s Upcoming Streaming service in 2019.

Here is all of the info below:

Just announced by Dave Filoni at San Diego Comic-Con during a 10th anniversary celebration of the beloved animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be returning with 12 all-new episodes on Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service. Created by George Lucas, the show first aired in 2008 and became an entry point into Star Wars for an entire generation, following fan-favorites like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while introducing major new characters like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. Its stories were complex, its heroes and villains were perfectly imperfect, and its look was captivatingly beautiful. It became a multi-Emmy winner and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.
But it was never finished. The Clone Wars ended after five broadcast seasons — just as Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. A few post-Season Five episodes were later released as “The Lost Missions,” but the story wasn’t over. Fans have clamored for Disney and Lucasfilm to finish what was started ever since. And now it’s actually happening.

This is amazing news I’ve always been a huge fan of the Clone Wars, Prequels especially Revenge of the Sith and Anakin Skywalker and I can’t wait until upcoming Season releases.

The Link below to the full article also has a interview with Dave Filoni.

As somebody who owns the MMPR-PRLG boxset once it was announced a few years back I hope Should Factor or Fox releases the MMPR Movie on Blu-Ray as a stand alone, I can’t see myself paying that much on something I have the whole MMPR set of.

It may be a rights issue that Shout can only release it thru the collection set since Fox owns the MMPR Movie rights.

Hasbro has acquire the rights to the Power Rangers Brand.

Posted by OujaStrike on May 1, 2018

First off man it’s been awhile since the last time I posted on here it was in April of 2016, hopefully I be a little more active on here going forward.

Huge Breaking News hit today that Haim Saban has Sold the Power Rangers franchise to Hasbro, i’m kinda surprised i didn’t think Haim would sell Power Rangers again since he bought back from rights to Power Rangers from Disney back in 2010.

Back in Feburary when it was announced that in 2019 Toys for Power Rangers will be leaving Bandai America to Hasbro I think many of us assumed in a few years Hasbo could buy the rights but don’t think many saw it happening so soon.

Here is the some of the Press Release click the link for the whole article.

LOS ANGELES & PAWTUCKET, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–May 1, 2018– Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, and Saban Properties LLC today announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement for Hasbro to purchase Saban’s Power Rangers and several other entertainment brands, including My Pet Monster, Popples, Julius Jr., Luna Petunia, Treehouse Detectives and others, in a combination of cash and stock valued at $522 million.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180501005946/en/
“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,” said Brian Goldner, Hasbro’s chairman and chief executive officer. “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 Haim Saban 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 Haim Saban, 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.”
Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers quickly became a pop culture phenomenon. Today, Power Rangers is one of the longest running kids’ live-action series in television history with nearly 900 episodes produced to date. The TV series, currently in its 25th season with Power Rangers Super Ninja Steel, and feature films, including 2017’s movie with Lionsgate, follows the adventures of a group of ordinary teens who morph into superheroes and save the world from evil. Saban’s Power Rangers currently airs in 150 markets around the world and is translated into numerous languages.
The first set of products from Hasbro will be available in spring 2019

Posted by OujaStrike on January 12, 2016

Today it has official been confirmed that Season 24 of Power Rangers will be titled Power Rangers Ninja Steel airing in 2017 on Nickelodeon, no news on which Sentai it will be adapted from but it’s very likely it will be adapted from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.

Saban Brands and Nickelodeon have extended their deal thru 2018

On top of that, Saban’s partnership with Nickelodeon to broadcast Power Rangers has now been renewed through 2018 and IGN can exclusively reveal the title of Season 24, beginning in 2017: Power Rangers Ninja Steel. No image of the new team yet, but Nickelodeon has provided us with an official synopsis of Power Rangers’ next iteration:

The Article confirming the new season comes from IGN via the official Power Rangers Facebook page.

Saban’s Power Rangers Ninja Steel starts deep in space, where Zircon is the reigning champion of the most popular intergalactic game show in the universe, and monsters battle to prove who is the mightiest warrior. Zircon is determined to become invincible by controlling the mythical Spirit Crystal, which contains six supernatural Ninja Power Throwing Stars. The only thing standing in his way is a new team of heroic teenage Power Rangers who possess the Spirit Crystal. The evil Zircon sends his warrior contestants down to Earth to steal the Crystal, where each epic battle against the Rangers is broadcast throughout the universe. Together, the Rangers must master their arsenal of Throwing Stars, Zords and Megazords, each made of legendary ninja steel, in order to stop this evil threat and save our planet from destruction.

My favorite Lightsaber Duels in Star Wars

Posted by OujaStrike on December 17, 2015

This is my top 10 Lightsaber Duels in Star Wars, this only covers the movies not any of the animated series from Star Wars.

10 – Ben Kenobi vs Darth Vader Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope.

open-uri20150608-27674-e78oit_b478dfc2

I think th.is is the weakest of any of the lightsaber duels but a great story to explain the force to Luke Skywalker.

9 – Yoda vs Darth Sidious Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

open-uri20150608-27674-cqvj57_fe5995b0

An okay fight but just a filler i believe to say we have a battle between the two most powerful masters in Star Wars Jedi and Sith.

8 – Obi-Want vs General Grievous Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.Star-Wars-3-Revenge-of-the-Sith-Obi-Wan-Kenobi-vs-General-Grievous

A underrated fight but was cool to see someone who is neither a Jedi or Sith wield a Lightsaber or even 4 Lightsabers but just wish the Lightsaber battle lasted a little longer.

7 – Mace Windu vs Darth Sidious Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

ep-q10_36f40bbd.jpg

I always liked this battle and was cool to see the Dark Side in Mace Windu’s eyes and also love the Shatter Glass breaking thru with the Lightsabers.

6 – Obi-Wan & Anakin vs Count Dooku, Yoda vs Count Dooku Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones.

369084_1264949445974_full

A cool battle was very cool to see Anakin wield 2 Lightsabers don’t think that’s been shown in any of the films before and loved the dark battle with the brightness of the Lightsabers with close up shots of Anakin and Dooku.

Dooku_vs_yoda

Such a funny battle when i saw it on opening weekend in 2002 the theater was laughing so much, since this is the first time we see Yoda with a Lightsaber so awesome

5 – Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

open-uri20150608-27674-vpzf83_d992ba6b.jpg

A perfect way to wrap up the story for Darth Vader by having Luke using his anger like his Father in the ending of the Lightsaber duel but not going over board like his Father.

4 – Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan vs Darth Maul Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace.

Episode_1_Darth_Maul_Obi-Wan_Kenobi_Qui-Gon_Jinn.jpg

Such an epic duel and the ending between Obi-Wan and Maul was so fast and intense it will always be the high point all of Lightsaber battles.

3 – Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

open-uri20150608-27674-zfaw3b_3f7b3ae3.jpg

The very best of the Originals battles I remember watching this so much on my Brother’s VHS that it ruining the tape and who would of thought that Vader is Luke’s Father one of the biggest surprises in movie history.

2 – Obi-Wan & Anakin Skywalker vs Count Dooku Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

369084_1264949479179_full

open-uri20150608-27674-5ek0sk_36e06a2b.jpg

The battle between Anakin and Dooku this could of been my #1 as you see how much Hayden Christensen has improved on his Sword fighting he was amazing and you see the Power that Anakin has to take 1 step close to the dark side by beheaded Dooku.

1 – Obi-Wan vs Darth Vader Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

Obi-Wan-Kenobi-Anakin-Skywalker-obi-wan-kenobi-24321622-360-214.jpg

sw_obiwan-vs-anakin

The Battle of all battles this was a masterpiece between Master and Apprentice and also the longest Lightsaber battle in history, could of been a little more dialog between Kenobi & Vader and as you can see Vader’s rage gets the better of him and leaves him stuck in the Vader suit.

Hope you all enjoy my list ranking the duels let me know what you think of my list.

May The Force Be You & enjoy Star Wars Episode VII The Force awakens.
