________The Breakdown_______
Just the facts
  • The newest season of Power Rangers will be adapted from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger
  • Saban has made a new deal with Namco Bandai and Bandai America, for the toys as usual and new video games from Namco.
  • 700 old episodes (original MMPR to RPM) will air on Nicktoons 7 days a week!
  • The new season will feature 40 episodes. They may be split with 20 episodes now and 20 episodes later. But the complete season will be 40 for Power Rangers 2011.
  • Jonathan Tzachor will be in charge of the new 18th season (Shoot me.....).
  • Saban is making deals for a movie. Nothing else has been announced. Most likely it will through Paramount Films, which Nickelodeon is allied with. Nickelodeon has been developing a new film division, with Ninja Turtles being one of the productions.
  • Movie production workers from Auckland, such as costume designers and set painters are being offered three-year contracts on Power Rangers. This means Saban is serious about quality with Power Rangers!
  • Ron Wasserman will not be returning to perform music for the show in any capacity. =[
  • Brian Casentini will help develop new Power Rangers skein -- Haim Saban's new shingle Saban Brands has named Brian Casentini veep of development and production.
  • Nickelodeon/Paramount might not have the dvd rights to Power Rangers. It's rumored Saban Brands is looking for a third party to publish and distribute such dvds.

  • BurgundyRanger has confirmed that August 28 will be the last day of MMPRv2 on ABC. This all pretty much says that we may see the reruns on Nick in September, unless they have other plans.
  • The Power Rangers will leave Disney World in August 7, 2010 according to a castmember at Intercot boards and Daily Disney blog. A week before I go to Disney, whatthehell. XD
  • Saban is in talks to acquire three new properties not specifically aimed at kids!
  • "Power Rangers" is the #7 trending topic in New York City! Airing on ABC Kids now. Source.
