Power Rangers Ninja Steel announced for 2017.

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.

Power Rangers Reboot Movie News

Posted by OujaStrike on July 15, 2014


Huge news broke by the Hollywood Reporter that confirmed 2 Writers and a exec producer for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie Reboot.

Here is the full press release by the Hollywood Reporter

The Power Rangers have found their creative team.

The upcoming movie being developed by Lionsgate and rights holder Saban Brands will be scripted by X-Men: First Class writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz.

Additionally, Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters behind the Transformers and Star Trek movies, is coming on board as an exec producer.

Orci who recently split with screenwriting partner Alex Kurtzman, has formed a new venture, Sneaky Shark.

Orci will develop the movie’s story along with Miller and Stentz, with the latter two handling screenwriting duties.

Power Rangers was a ’90s TV series and global marketing franchise, initially called The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, that used footage from a Japanese children’s show. It first aired on Fox Kids then in the 2000s on Disney-owned channels. A movie also hit theaters in 1995.

The new movie promises to completely re-envision the Rangers, a group of high school kids who are infused with unique superpowers but must harness and use those powers as a team if they have any hope of saving the world.
Haim Saban, who created the franchise, will produce Power Rangers with Saban Brands’ head of development and production Brian Casentini. Also producing is Allison Shearmur, who oversaw The Hunger Games when she was Lionsgate’s president of production and recently produced Disney’s Cinderella.

In addition to First Class, Miller and Stentz have screenwriting credit on Marvel’s Thor and are working on a Terminator TV series. They worked with Orci on Fringe, the cult TV show he created with Kurtzman.
In addition to three Transformers movies and two Trek films, Orci’s writing credits include Mission: Impossible III, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, among several others.

Orci is repped by CAA, Miller and Stentz by WME and Principato Young Entertainment.
Lionsgate Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig and executive vp production and development Jim Miller are overseeing Rangers.

I never really heard of Ashley, Zack and Roberto but those are some successful movies that they each worked on and it’s good to see that Lionsgate and Saban Brands wants this film to be very successful and as a die-hard Power Ranger fan i’m excited for whats to come in the coming months.

Any other info that gets release i’ll keep everyone updated.

News broke on Monday afternoon by IGN that Paul Schrier best known for Bulk on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, Power Rangers In Space & Power Rangers Lost Galaxy will be returning to Power Rangers & will appear in the 1st Episode this coming Monday.
from IGN.
Original Power Rangers Cast Member Returns
Exclusive: Which Mighty Morphin’ actor is back for Power Rangers: Samurai?
When Power Rangers: Samurai premieres on Nickelodeon next week, a very familiar face to longtime Power Rangers fans will be present – someone who was there for the very first episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back in 1993.

That person is Paul Schrier, who will be reprising his role as Bulk on Power Rangers: Samurai. Schrier was a longtime cast member of the franchise, appearing in both the Power Rangers feature films and throughout the first several seasons and incarnations of the TV series. Schrier last played Bulk in 2002, when he made a guest appearance on Power Rangers: Wild Force. In addition, Schrier directed episodes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy and Power Rangers: Turbo.

Schrier will appear in the premiere episode of Samurai — airing on Monday, February 7th at 8pm on Nickelodeon — and then make guest appearances throughout the series.

Check out our exclusive clip of Schrier on Power Rangers: Samurai, which proves that 18 years later, Bulk is still, well, Bulk.
The Video includes Bulk & Spike Skull’s Son yes you heard me right Skull’s Son.

The Following Entertainment Weekly posted the following:
Power Rangers Samurai’: Sneak peek at the reboot’s new intro — EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Back in May, the news came out that the long-running Power Rangers franchise was making the leap from Disney to Nickelodeon after the entity was bought back by original owner Haim Saban of Saban Brands. Well, now the new reboot of the series is coming to delightful consumer fruition, with the Power Rangers Samurai — the series 19th season! — launching soon, on Monday, Feb. 7, on Nickelodeon. As a run up to that premiere, EW has obtained an exclusive sneak peek at the intro to the new series, which explains some of the mythology behind this new generation of samurai warriors.
What’s different about this Power Rangers reboot? “We wanted to get back to the original core DNA of the show that made it so powerful and resonant in the ’90s,” explains Saban Brands president Elie Dekel. “We made sure that moving forward we drew on the best possible elements that we knew kids responded to, so we embedded a lot more humor in the show, a lot more charm and fun. Bringing back some of the silliness of the original series was a goal, and now it’s in high-def, which has never been done before, which gives it a really great new look.” Beyond that, Dekel continues, “We really wanted to pay homage to, if you will, the show’s Japanese origins with Samurai.” Take a peek at it here:

The new Rangers Cast Photo

The Power Rangers Samurai page has added Character Bios for Bulk & Spike:
Well-meaning, but a bit of a dolt, Bulk has big delusions of grandeur that don’t often translate to real life. Fancying himself a Samurai, Bulk is determined to shape Spike, the son of his lifelong best friend Skull, into a true Samurai warrior like himself. These efforts often end in comical disaster, as Bulk has no idea what he’s doing, and in the face of danger he often runs in the other direction.

The hapless son of Skull has inherited his father’s clumsy tendencies and his snorting laughter, but that doesn’t stop him in his earnest quest to become a Samurai. Though he tries to have courage, Spike is ill-prepared for the dangers that come with being a Samurai and is essentially just a clumsy civilian with a serious crush on the Pink Ranger.

Saban’s Power Rangers Youtube Channel has a interview with Paul Schrier who plays Bulk.

The Power Rangers Official Website has added a Become A Samurai where you can upload a picture of yourself with a one side has the PR Helmet & the other side has your face & if you have a Webcam you can have the whole helmet in the pic. http://samuraiyourself.powerrangers.com/

Just as the Power Rangers work together to solve a different challenge in every episode, the Power Rangers emPOWER Movement will provide parents and kids the tools they need to work together to grow healthy kids and support healthy communities.

EmPOWER inspires participation in schools, online and in local communities to demonstrate the Power Rangers values in action: teamwork, confidence, health and physical activity, friendship and caring. emPOWER will launch with a focus on health and physical fitness in February, 2011. The emPOWER Movement is positive and fun, emphasizing kids’ strengths and potential, and providing kids and parents with accessible resources.

Ranger of the week
Every week the emPOWER website will feature a young person who’s making a difference in their family, school, or community. Nominated by parents on the emPOWER facebook page, we’ll feature the Ranger of the Week’s photo and story to inspire kids, parents, and teachers about how kids are making a difference.

emPOWER Schools
During January and February 2011, Gym Class Kits including Fitness guides and bulletin board messaging are being delivered to more than 4500 participating U.S. elementary schools. The guides include group activities focused on Power Rangers values and physical fitness, designed for Kindergarten – 3rd grade students.
