Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the FAN FILM. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don’t send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version is on youtube.

Huge thanks to The Monkie Grid (Twitter) for staying up until 3am EST to confirm this for me!. Turns out, this isn’t a new pilot after all, but a new fan film helmed by Joseph Kahn and starring Katee Sackhoff as Pink Ranger Kimberly Hart and James van Der Beek as Billy Cranston.
News of this fan film first broke when an auction listing for the battle damaged suits used in the filming of this fan film surfaced online. As more and more information slowly unfolded, it looked like many in Ranger Nation were at odds to wonder if this was a real thing or not especially when “news” came out that it was backed by Saban Brands. And now we have our answer!
