With Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters being used as the Sentai that Power Rangers Beast Morphers would be adapting it’s season from, many fans were surprised that Saban Brands/Hasbro decided to go back to a five/six-year-old source material. The main reason being that the quality of the suits would not be up to snuff, a common reasoning behind why many fans believe multiple Sentai seasons were skipped over the years.
Yesterday, at the Hasbro preview breakfast at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, some interesting news has been revealed: the production of the show includes plans to recreate the suits as needed, when needed.
For a little bit of further explanation for why this has come to pass and how it would affect filming:
This news has had many fans thinking this will be an expensive season. Without use of the bonus 5% uplift for the Power Rangers franchise as it films in New Zealand, one does wonder if the budget for this show would increase. Or does Hasbro has other means in receiving more finances from New Zealand to pull off this feat.
Filming for the 26th season of the franchise — which we still do not have information regarding how many seasons this theme will last — is due to start in late September/Early October. The cast is known to be revealed at Power Morphicon, the official Power Rangers convention, being held this year August 17-19th 2018 in Anaheim, California.
