What If HBO Had Power Rangers? Take II…Or III [Fanedit]

MMPR logo

Recently took the previous cut of this edit to the discord server on SDN Editions…and got some great feedback, including one or two creative suggestions that made me completely re-evaluate what I’d done. One criticism is that the plot seemed ‘all over the place’ (difficult to achieve with jarringly different footage), so I took their suggestions and have put together a new cut. Parts where JDF isn’t available to use I substituted with the guy who played him on Power/Rangers so there is not much consistency with actor continuity during the middle, but I hope that won’t prove a base breaker. Should have the edit up soon. I’ll leave the original up so people can contrast and compare and decide which cut is better.

Power Rangers Wild Force: Forever Red-End of Session Edition [Fanedit]

Power Rangers Forever Red

DOWNLOAD DVD COVER HERE

As I continue to edit various Power Rangers episodes,  the one I’ve been most pleased so far with is the one I’ve done for “Forever Red” the 10th anniversary story from 2002. I’ve repurposed it so it now serves not just as a finale to Power Rangers Wild Force (in place of the “Tnd of the Power Rangers” two-parter) but also a prequel to 2009’s Power Rangers RPM, which at the time was intended to be the last season.

Changes

  1. Added “Previously On…” montage depicting Master Org’s ultimate defeat
  2. Added Cole saying goodbye to Red Lion
  3. Forever Red plays as normal
  4. Added scenes of Cole making peace with his parents’ memory as well as Victor Adlers’ as well Allisa telling the class of what happened to the Rangers afterwards, all taken from “The End of the Power Rangers Part Two”. The scenes where they give up their growl phones and powers has been removed to give you the hope they will eventually return to active Ranger duty.
  5. Special epilogue created for the ending using footage and audio from the RPM title sequence and the episode “Road to Corinth”

Power Rangers Turbo-Shift Into Turbo Part One [Fanedit]

The fifth season of Power Rangers is hailed as the worst of the Zordon era, for the first sixteen or so episodes of Power Rangers Turbo, it can be argued there is a case for this.

Based off a fairly comical Sentai, Turbo took itself far too seriously, the plots often being played straight despite the zanyness of the concpets. It took a showrunner change, a healthy mixture of high stakes storytelling and an embrace of the cheesy lunacy of Carranger, and the sacking of 97% of the established cast in favour of the next generation to create the Turbo season it’s fans fondly remember.

It’s premiere storyline was actually the Turbo movie, and the follow up which started the season proper was the three parter Shift Into Turbo. Many of my ‘fondest’ memories getting into fanediting was trying to repurpose this story as a grand exist stage left for everybody, Zordon, Alpha, Tommy, Kat, Tanya, and Adam. It was ambitious, and it was ultimately a mess.

When remounting projects, you have to take a look at them again and wonder if what you were trying to make up for was worth discarding in the first place? Was there something in Shift Into Turbo that could be spared? The thing about this trilogy is, it that it devotes itself to three essentials…villain and threat, Ranger action, and Zord commercial for the third part. I chose to focus on the Ranger action, on the characters graduation. The wormhole plot is referenced and built upon, but you can just switch to the traditional third part and pretend it’s the second. In this edit, only parts one and two of this story are fused together.

Gone is some of the graduation day preparation, gone is too much time spent on Divatox’s planet, and to the relief of all, there is Bulk and Skull being turned to monkeys. justin still finds his way to the energy plant without homing in on the plight of the chimps, and the reason he’s there is thankfully covered by Zordon.

Turbo’s first half can be salvaged, let’s see if this is more you speed.

An edit that required minimum effort and fuss, this is merely the second half of the Power Rangers Wild Force two-part crossover ‘Reinforcements From The Future’ re purposed as a “season two” episode of Power Rangera Time Force, complete with TF-flavoured pre-titles, titles, and end credits.

HBO Presents….Power Rangers [Fanedit]

MMPR logo

A reworking of a previous edit I did. This collects several of the more controversial Power Rangers fanfilms such as MMPR and Power/Rangers, and combines them with Bat In The Sun’s Street Fighter Special and the Shattered Grid trailer to create a 18 or so minute ‘proof-of-concept’ presentation of a more grown up take on the programme.

Unlike the previous version, this one tries to stick to the right aspect ratios, although I still came up short a bit with some MMPR footage mid-way through the episode. Ah well.

Happy Easter.
