Teaser #2: Shorter TV Version

This version aired on Nickelodeon on Saturday and is a bit shorter. Some of the scenes are spliced together and the Rangers say “Go-Go Megaforce” instead of the classic “It’s Morphin’ Time!”
I wonder which will be used!

Teaser #1

It’s finally here! We waited, a little impatiently but still, and here it is!

Some key moments in the promo to analyze and remember:
– The Warstar Aliens invade in which appears to be stock foottage but we do get to hear Vrak’s wicked voice!
– Emma has a camera and Jake has a volleyball
– Gosei’s voice is similar to Zordon’s
– The Ranger “Keys” or “Figures” appear to be plentiful in the Command Center
– It appears that the Morphin’ Call is the Classic “It’s Morphin’ Time!” while the shorter TV promo uses “Go Go Megaforce!”
– The Rangers use the same poses as the Goseiger
– Earth’s Defenders, Never Surrender is in play!
– Land, Sea and Air play a part of the powers and Zords
–  Inside the Gosei Great Megazord the Rangers say, “Mega Strike!”
– It appears the cockpit of the Gosei Great Megazord has stayed the same!
– The promo used a splice of the Power Rangers Samurai theme and at the end what sounded like the new Megaforce theme!

My thoughts:
I am pretty impressed. The series seems to follow Mighty Morphin’ in a way that Samurai/Super Samurai never could. The cast looks phenomenal and appears to actually have depth, or from the images of them anyways.
Gosei seems to sound like Zordon and from this, I want to know why! The Command Center looks pretty cool with the rotating fans and the Ranger figurines! I can’t wait to see the first few scenes in two weeks!
When the Rangers morph they use the same arm motions as the Goseiger and I actually like this. At first watch it was a little off putting that the Rangers use “It’s Morphin’ Time” but once I got used to it I liked it a lot more, This is the 20th Anniversary after all!. This was changed for the shorter TV version which has them using Go Go Megaforce!” hmmm strange….
I actually like that we got a tiny glimpse into the Rangers’ lives. Jake had a volleyball and Emma had a camera, which gives them a bit more depth. While Troy and Gia just look like badasses and Noah appears to be the smart one (Like Billy), which we already knew.
In this video we got to hear a tiny bit of the theme which was mixed in with the Samurai/Super Samurai theme, but if you listen to the back end of the promo the Megaforce theme peeks out. So far, sounds good!
There’s not a lot more we can tell from this promo, it was merely a tidbit as to what we can expect. While I also expect that the dubbing will sound a lot better in the final product, it did sound a little weird in the promo. I cannot wait until this show comes out!
Let the WarStar invasion begin!
