    Saban Brands’ Power Rangers Megaforce to Premiere on Nickelodeon in Early 2013

    The newest series marks 20 years for the Power Rangers franchise

    LOS ANGELES (June 11, 2012) – (Virtual Press Office) - Saban Brands will launch the newest version of Power Rangers, the number-one kids action series on television, with Power Rangers Megaforce . The all new series, which premieres in 2013, will deliver mega action, humor, excitement, and entertainment, in addition to the core themes of friendship, teamwork, fitness, and helping others. Power Rangers Megaforce will air as Saban Brands celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise.

    “Power Rangers continues to delight fans of all ages, even nearly 20 years after it was first introduced to kids across the world,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. “We are excited to continue the success we’ve experienced with our partnership with Nickelodeon and introduce fans everywhere to a MEGA- installment in 2013.”

    Power Rangers Megaforce introduces a plot line that is sure to captivate audiences with exciting new characters, villains, and high-octane action. The new series features Gosei, a supernatural guardian who for centuries, has protected the earth with his robotic aide, Tensou. But when the evil Warstar aliens begin their massive invasion, Gosei calls upon five teenagers with attitude to form the ultimate team...the Power Rangers Megaforce!

    When the teens morph into Power Rangers, they gain superhuman strength, agility, and mastery over martial arts. In addition to defending earth against the Warstar aliens, other monstrous factions emerge to challenge the Megaforce Rangers. Under the leadership of a malevolent alien, toxic beasts rise from their slimy underground lair to attack the Earth and a ruthless robot army launches an offensive from their deep sea compound. In order to face these new threats, the Power Rangers Megaforce unlock powerful battle modes to fight their adversaries. Go Go Power Rangers! – fans can look forward to all new MEGA adventures in 2013.

The series will be helmed by Haim Saban, who created and produced the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series in 1993. Following its introduction, Power Rangers quickly became the most-watched children’s television program in the United States. The series followed the adventures of a group of ordinary young people who “morphed” into superheroes. It was seen in more than 60 countries, translated into numerous languages, and was a mainstay in the most prominent international children’s programming blocks. Power Rangers LLC, which licenses and merchandises the Power Rangers brand, is an affiliate of Saban Brands. For more information, visithttp://www.powerrangers.com.

    Casting is still going on so not all Rangers are confirmed


    Black Ranger Candidates

    Candidate 1

    Trevor Christianson

    Candidate 2

    Peter Adrian


    Silver Ranger Candidate

    Eric Anwar

    This show will be split into two 20 episode seasons (similar to "Power Rangers: Samurai: and "Super Samurai"). Currently the seasons will be known as "MEGAFORCE" and "Super MEGAFORCE". Also, the two seasons will use footage from twp different Super Sentai shows, Goseiger (pictured above) and Gokaiger (below and also the reason we have a Silver Ranger candidate).


    Something to take note of is the fact that the Gokaiger team has the ability to transform into past Rangers complete with all of their ranger powers with the use of, special "Ranger Keys"


    Finally

    According to Ira Mayer of EPM Communications, Saban Brands will acquire the “4Kids Saturday morning Kids TV block subject to court approval.”



    Konami and Saban have been figuring out how to divide 4Kids Entertainment’s assets after the auction for the bankrupt company adjourned. They had until July 31st to come to an agreement or else 4Kids would go back on the auction block.

    If the acquisition is approved, there’s speculation that after Saban’s contract ends with Nickelodeon in 2014, Power Rangers will be moved to the CW. Others say that it would be another outlet for reruns. Don’t be surprised if this is Fox Kids all over again.

    4Kids is now Vortexx (Link Here:​

    My nephew watches Power Rangers. So I guess he'll be thrilled. His parents, not so much.

    That's all I can really sat about this news.

    Power Rangers was cool when I was 6. If you still watch it, you're 15 and simple trying to feel some sort of psuedo nostalgia that you've never experienced. Either way, the show sucks.

    The newer ones, yes, especially when I saw that 4Kids was involved. the one that aired from 1993 to 1996, was infinitely better. I was watching it on Netflix the other day.

    Samurai is actually pretty good. It blew all the Disney versions out of the water easily.

    Megaforce, love the creative name. Power rangers could probably appeal more to teens if they didn't have to 'kid-ify' it so much. Like where the rangers always have to say their move names. "Hyper punch!!!"

    Can you do those with the dark theme a favor and reformat this? Can't read half of it. Just hit the eraser button in the top left corner next to the light switch.

    Anyways, Power Rangers were pretty cool when I was a kid. Then they got shitty. Hopefully this isn't as bad.

    Sorry about the cast pics. Damn Rangercrew.com I'll fix it in a few. I cant wait for MEGAFORCE! It's gonna kick soo much ass!

    blahkamehameha, did you not watch "Power Rangers: RPM"? That season alone demolishes Samurai! Hell, it's the single greatest season of Power Rangers so far and THAT was made by Disney.

    wait, you're saying RPM is better than not only Samurai, but the original Mighty Morphin' as well? I guess you're entitled to your opinion, but damn....

    I hope Michael Bay makes one.

    Its awesome when you see people get up in arms when someone ruin their "good shows"...you know because as soon as a film is made it permanently deletes the memories and existing episodes. Remove the outfits, make them furries but none have separate colours apart from the bald gay wheelchair bound retarded fellow so stereotypically black it borders on racism and give them all Twilight hair!

    Am I the only one who thought the name meant it was going to be a Gokaiger adaption instead of a Goseiger adaption?

    ^^^view ranger crew. Confirmed Saban can't skip season and MegaForce is going to be a hybrid season of some kind. Also the site owner want's you to take down the pics you stole from him or give credit in the first post.
