It’s morphin’ time! Power Rangers is heading into its 28th season and that means it’s time for a brand new team! After two years of Power Rangers Beast Morphers a new team will step up to the plate to become the newest in the long line of Power Rangers. Fans have been eagerly awaiting this announcement for months now and it would have most likely been revealed at Power Morphicon if it wasn’t cancelled because of COVID-19.
Thankfully Hasbro PulseCon and Hasbro Pulse’s Fan First Friday allowed us to meet the new cast virtually and we’ve got all five of them below.
Russel Curry will play Zayto, the Dino Fury Red Ranger.
Kai Moya as Ollie, the Dino Fury Blue Ranger.
Hunter Deno as Amelia, the Dino Fury Pink Ranger.
Tessa Rao as Izzy, the Dino Fury Green Ranger.
Chance Perez as Javier Garcia, the Dino Fury Black Ranger.
The casting of Tessa Rao as Izzy is especially delightful because, for the first time in a very long time, the franchise has decided to gender swap one a Ranger from the Sentai. In Ryusoulger, the series Dino Fury is taking its footage from, the Green Ranger was a man but in Power Rangers Dino Fury she’ll be a woman! Love it!
Along with those cast reveals we also learned the name of a villainess from the season named “Boomtower” and two monsters of the day, “Doomsnake” and “Shockhorn. We also saw, at least for the toys, the Red Ranger will have a sword, the Blue Ranger will have two sai’s, and the Pink Ranger will have a mace.
We also got a trailer for the season which can be watched right here!
This is a fairly generic teaser featuring a few new CGI shots but mostly just Sentai footage. The trailer itself teases a story that will involve the backstory of the Morphin Grid being brought to Earth 65 million years ago. Now in present day evil has come to claim that power. A new group of heroes will ruse up to the challenge and harness the Morphin Grid to become Power Rangers Dino Fury!
As exciting as that sounds these early teasers are often works in progress and don’t always reflect the season we’ll end up getting. So even the elements in the trailer like the cast saying “it’s morphin’ time!” may not be finalized. Still, it’s enough to keep fans’ excitement going until the show premieres in 2021 on Nickelodeon!
If you want more information about the season we had an exclusive interview with Dino Fury showrunner Simon Bennett about how COVID-19 impacted production of the season, his work on previous seasons, writing the series for children and adults, and much more.
We can’t wait for Power Rangers Dino Fury when it premieres next year! What are you hoping from the newest entry in the Power Rangers franchise?
