PR News 04/01/08 Power Rangers Jungle Fury will TEAMUP with...
 
I have some good news about the teamup this year. There will be one, but it won't be with Overdrive. I was told that the producers are bringing back the Ninja Storm Rangers. This is gonna rock. Stay tuned for more details. http://www.rovang.org/timeline/bigpics/wind_ninjas.jpg

Knightfall 03/31/08 11:43 PM

Yeah I heard about this.

Apparently one of my two sources was told about this from Sally Martin herself. Seems to be legit.

I guess we can say for sure that it would involve Shane, Tori and Dustin.

PrimoPiccolo 04/01/08 06:09 AM

April Fools'!


...please God.

Knightfall 04/01/08 12:08 PM

Sadly it's not an April Fool's joke.

I told you about this some time ago Piccolo.

It's true.

Tendou Soujiro 04/01/08 01:54 PM

What?

DarkRanger99 04/01/08 02:14 PM

This should be good. I think this is the first time a ranger team has teamed up with just one other team that wasn't right before it. I look forward to it!

PRangerX 04/01/08 06:15 PM

I think a NS/Jungle Fury team up is a smart idea. As both seasons have similar themes. And if production does move to Canada next year, it makes sense to use the first NZ team. I hope this doesn't fall through.

DarkBlaze 04/01/08 06:31 PM

Sweet!

...as a coping mechanism. :(

Poweranimals 04/02/08 02:07 PM

Actually I'm still waiting on confirmation for this, but something is in the works. So hang tight just a little longer.

I can understand your disappointment Primo; Ninja Storm wasn't exactly the best season. In fact, it was almost the worst until S.P.D. But the Rangers themselves were definitely some of the most likable. I'm Definitely looking forward to this, Disney's trying something new:eek:, and I for one do appreciate that. Let's wait and see before jumping to conclusions, whether their good or not.

Sakura3 04/05/08 12:29 AM

Wow that's interesting. This ought to be good. I'll be catching this event on ABC later. I've watched almost all the team ups except To The 10th Power and Rangers Of Two Worlds.

THis is the first I've seen Disney go back 5 years for a team up. Toei didn't evewn plan that. They just teamed up with Operation Overdrive/Boukenger last year but not Hurricane Ranger.

Believe it or not, but Ranger Productions Ltd. doesn't get all their ideas from Toei. Hence us getting Adam in "Once a Ranger" instead of a strange Red Ranger from the future like in Boukenger vs. Super Sentai.

EEEEWWWW, I hate Aka Red.:mad:

RangerKing 04/06/08 11:48 AM

This is excellent. There are certainly similar themes in both seasons and it really seems to work. It would certainly suck not to have the Overdrive team back, but other than Miratrix's end not being really clear, I don't see where a plot could come from.

Knightfall 04/06/08 11:52 AM

Honestly, I have to admit I'm not a fan of this idea.

The tone and feel of Ninjastorm is very self-contained. I dont think you could be true to the sillyness of NS without making JF look like a joke as well.

I would have rather they did an OO/JF teamup with Kamdor and Miratrix. The Bouken/Geki one was cool.

RangerKing 04/06/08 12:01 PM

While Ninja Storm was silly, I seem to believe the sillyness was mostly contained to the villains and not to the actual rangers. And thinking back, that applies to both Thunder Storm and Once A Ranger where the truthfulness of the Ninja Storm team was retained.

Knightfall 04/06/08 12:08 PM

Well to be fair, Thunder Storm kept it in the house with the Sloan series and I thought the Marah/Kapri nonsense dragged the ep down a bit.

Once A Ranger barely had any Tori focus, not that I'm complaining.

An OO/JF would have had more potential though.

I feel like NS is charted territory now, but I suppose if this is the last season in NZ, at least there won't be NS anymore.

RangerKing 04/06/08 12:18 PM

I'm not too sure about that. With the exception of Sally Martin, everyone in Once A Ranger were flown to New Zealand. This is the case with the S.P.D.-Dino Thunder team-up as well where all four actors needed were flown. So there isn't any problem with flying actors.

Knightfall 04/06/08 12:21 PM

Yeah, but that was before the budget was slashed and the cost of filming in NZ went up.

I'm sure the real reason they avoided the OO teamup this year was paying to fly the cast back to NZ (especially since two are in the UK).

Pua, Glenn and Sally are all locals.

RangerKing 04/06/08 03:24 PM

True, the entire Ninja Storm cast was either Kiwi or Aussie. But I don't think that the budget was really as slashed as people are made to believe otherwise why do international casting?

Knightfall 04/06/08 04:05 PM

There was no international casting this year. Everyone is from Australia.

Actually I think NS and JF would go well together. Namely because both use Ninja like Rangers. I don't see how JF is more serious then NS. And NS could be serious when they had to be. I think it would be perfect.

See an OO/JF team up would just be the same team up we have gotten most years. I think NS/JF teaming up would be a much fresher idea. OO/JF really don't go as well together. And its not like there is a lot of loose ends to tie up in OO. Sure there's Miratrix. But if you really wanted to, you could bring her back to jion the JF villians. Now that would be thinking outside of the box.

I still don't know why people consider this a 'loose end'. I mean, whether or not Kamdor had the amulet when he exploded, Miratrix was dealt with.

That's like saying because Gluto froze himself instead of being destroyed that he could still come back.

I think there is a way to bring her back though. Somehow the amulet could have survived. We have seen villains survive worse. Sure she could very well be gone. It was probably just a way to kill her off without getting the sensors angry. But I could diffinitly see her coming back. Its not an incredible loose end that has to be resolved though.

Correct, but budget rumors surfaced during S.P.D. so it logically wouldn't make sense after last year's team-up.

Because we saw Kamdor was able to escape the amulet and so Miratrix didn't have even a remotely permament fate.

christphern 04/07/08 12:31 AM

Well, aside from her ninja abilities, Miratrix appeared to be, more or less, a human. Just because Kamdor was able to get free does not necessarily mean Miratrix could. Additionally, being a human, it's unlikely that Miratrix would have survived the explosion better than any other human would.

I'm glad that they're not doing an Overdrive team-up. Overdrive was, honestly, the worst Disney season, if not the worst PR season, to date. I found no redeeming quality in the series, aside from Spencer (who was mostly dropped mid-season) and the Once a Ranger team-up. Definitely not worth having wasted 16 hours on. It had terrible acting and terrible writing. Add in Dax, Ronnie, Norg, Moltor, Flurious, Sentinel Knight, Kamdor, the *cringe* Fear Cats, Miratrix, and Tyzonne, and you've got a PR series worse than any I can think of. So, yeah, thank whatever deity you believe in that Overdrive isn't returning to ruin what has thus far proved to be a much better series. The best part of Overdrive was the end. Not the ending, the fact that it's over. I just want to forget that that season ever happened, and remember only Boukenger.

Additionally, I actually really liked Ninja Storm. It was a nice balance of comedy, fun characters, and cool powers. The theme of this series, as has been stated, fits along the same lines as NS, so it's a good choice to team the two up. Even if it sucks, it's bound to be better than the alternative we would otherwise have gotten.

RangerKing 04/07/08 06:06 PM

Quite frankly some of the most evil of villains in the end were just simply human...Master Org, Lothor, Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd...albeit with some help. Kamdor, remember, wasn't able to simply remove himself from the amulet without help and therefore the same rule should apply to Miratrix, if the amulet isn't destroyed.

Thank you.

That reticulating laser thingy seemed hard to come by when Will swiped it, and if I remember right it got trashed right after Kamdor was freed. So it's not like we're just waiting for some hapless fool to find a necklace, see a hot chick inside, and rub it for three wishes.

RangerKing 04/07/08 07:04 PM

But you know with this year being ninja based and Miratrix and Kamdor were ninjas....Dai Shi could've done something (maybe).

Jungle Fury is not Ninja based.

Why do people always get their shorts in a bunch about the definition of 'ninja'? You know he meant that the series is based in martial arts. Obviously they're not ninjas, but if you're going to get so technical about the meaning, I can think of a ton of reasons the Wind and Thunder Rangers weren't true ninjas either.

Sakura3 04/08/08 03:23 AM

Actually correct because Jungle Fury like the Toei based series is Kung Fu. We've only had one Ninja themed series which was Ninja Storm. Disney has only used one theme style for each show they adapted. Like Space Patrol Delta was intergalactic police themed and Mystic Force was a Magic theme. This year is Jungle / Kung Fu.

Power Rangers XV in 09 will be some sort of racing feel to it so Power Rangers 09 will have a name to fit the style for the year. Also this year it'll possibly have something to do with enviornmental defense battles like the Toei series. We've been geting a lot of that with Mystic Force , Space Ptrol Delta and Jungle Fury. However before too long we could see some styles used in the Saban era days since Disney hasn't used them yet. That's what happened with Dino Thunder. We had a lot of the same kind of Zords we saw in Mighty Morphin. Soon we could see a Zeo or In Space type theme with a new tweak.

But it is about an academy dedicated to training young people in an ancient form of martial arts in order to protect the world against evil.

Which is two themes.

lol true!

Harlan Phoenix 04/27/08 07:37 PM

I've called this on both HenshinTalk and Rangerboard, but I'll say it here too.

I'm betting that Dai Shi's first host was the original Lothor.

red timeforce ranger 04/27/08 08:56 PM

dai shi is dragon

Macdaddyc 04/28/08 01:07 AM

actually i think that it's better to do JF/OO team up because that's how it always been, except for PROO. Usually every season teams up with the previous season.

PROO had Mystic Force Green Ranger which was right but everyone else wasnt suppose to be there.
