So we finally make it to the final Disney era Power Rangers season and boy did they go out with a bang. Much like with Power Rangers In Space, RPM was a season where clearly the writers had tons of leeway to do whatever show they wanted. Disney at the time was investing heavily in Marvel so the Power Rangers license was whatever to them. What we end up getting is easily one of the best seasons of this franchise.
A preview of things to come when we talk about Power Rangers Samurai
The Power Rangers movie trailer has FINALLY been released and we have a lot to say about it. We talk about what we like/dislike about the trailer, dive into news from out of NYCC, talk a little bit of Tokusatsu randomness, and finally dig deep into Ninja Storm.
So at the height of Power Rangers initial success, Saban optioned to spread his wings and do American adaptations of other tokusatsu shows. One of those shows being based off the Metal Hero franchise. In comes VR Troopers which did lots of things that made it different than just another show like Power Rangers. Sure the characters transformed into suited heroes but these characters were different. They were young adults instead of teenagers and they had actual lives. The show overall was interesting and certain ideas from it was implemented into the Power Rangers franchise for the better.
