How Power Rangers Samurai will be handled
The latest news/rumors for Power Rangers Samurai are that PRS is going to be very close to Shinkenger. Since it's a new writing staff, it's understandable because they'll get an idea of how the show works. PRS is also going to have two seasons instead of just one, just like MMPR, kinda. There are also going to be some elements from MMPR used, like Skinny Mack and Big Jack kinda being the Bulk and Skull for this season. And since PRS is getting two seasons, maybe Saban Brands can use footage of Shinkenger mini-series Toei has planned for season two depending on the footage.
The names for the Rangers changed. Here are the new names for each Ranger:
Red Ranger - Jayden
Blue Ranger - Kevin
Pink Ranger - Mia
Green Ranger - Mike
Yellow Ranger - Emily
Gold Ranger - Wesley
Rangers' Mentor - Takeru (Homage to Shinkenger anyone?)
Some of you are probably wondering about the Shinkenger/Decade team-up footage. Well, I was told Saban Brands did buy the rights to the footage, but I have no idea what they will do or how they will work.
Personally, I like the idea of having two seasons rather than one for PRS, because then they can plan something totally cool if they decide to adapt Goseiger. Plus, Goseiger is very much good enough for a anniversary theme. I think they purposely set this up, since Goseiger has alot of elements from the MMPR.
-The color scheme (Red, Yellow, Black, Pink, and Blue)
-The suits/helmets/mecha are very similar to the ones in MMPR.
-Master Head is like Zordon.
-Datas is like Alpha.
-The villains are kinda similar.
Hey, they can even make it something like in Space/Lost Galaxy or give off some elements from both seasons. They can even make GoseiKnight a Magna Defender like character. I would totally love to see another Space season again. And depending on how well PRS does, we MAY even see a movie.
