Cameo Rangers and Jason David Frank Video

My review of Prince Takes Knight will be up this week.

Just a few weeks ago, we got confirmed by FuryDiamond of RangerCrew that there would be 10 Returning Rangers for the second half of MegaForce for May 25th and May 26th. This comes after the invitation fiasco that happened. These 10 Rangers are:
  • Jason David Frank: Tommy Oliver (Green Mighty Morphin Ranger, White Mighty Morphin Ranger, Red Zeo Ranger, 1st Red Turbo Ranger and Black Dino Thunder Ranger)
  • Selwyn Ward: T.J. Johnson (2nd Red Turbo Ranger and Blue In Space Ranger)
  • Melody Perkins: Karone (Astronema: Queen Of Evil and 2nd Pink Lost Galaxy Ranger)
  • Danny Slavin: Leo Corbett (Red Lost Galaxy Ranger)
  • Reggie Rolle: Damon Henderson (Green Lost Galaxy Ranger)
  • Sean CW Johnson: Carter Grayson (Red Lightspeed Rescue Ranger)
  • Alison MacInnis: Dana Mitchell (Pink Lightspeed Rescue Ranger)
  • Jason Faunt: Wes Collins (Red Time Force Ranger)
  • Hector David Jr: Mike (Green Samurai Ranger)
  • Brittney Anne Pirtle: Emily (Yellow Samurai Ranger)
According to Fury Diamond's source, it said that most of them will be used in the final scene for MegaForce and the others will be in something else, but I have a feeling from the following photos that there's more to it that the source isn't telling us. :)

Pictures come from the actors/actresses respectable social media pages.
This also reveals that Patricia Ja Lee who played Cassie Chan. (2nd Pink Turbo Ranger and Pink In Space Ranger) has also returned.

Jason David Frank also put up these cool posters.

More info as it develops :)

"Past Rangers Cameos" Fiasco

Pictures and video belong to their rightful owners. I own nothing.

There has been commotion going on in the PR fandom in the past few days. It's about cameos in the second half of MegaForce (which is being pitifully titled "Super" MegaForce. I hate it as much as you may do.) which will be using elements from Gokaiger as well as Goseiger with the Goaki suits being used as "power-ups". One of the elements from Gokaiger that the are also utilizing is appearances of former actors. This is a good thing.......................and a bad thing. In the past few days, a few actors declined or was uninvited to appear. Here they are now:

Pictured up above is Rhett Fisher. He played Ryan Mitchell, the Titanium Ranger in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. He is best known for portraying the very first American only Power Ranger since the Super Sentai that Lightspeed Rescue was adapted from, GoGoV, didn't have one. He was due to cameo in MegaForce, but this tweet said otherwise:
"Guess who was invited to do a cameo on PR Megaforce and then un-invited the next week because of budget restrictions. #majorletdown#titanium"

Next comes Steve Cardenas who portrayed Rocky DeSantos, the 2nd Red Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Seasons 2 & 3 and the Blue Ranger in Power Rangers Zeo. He was invited to appear  but he said they weren't offering enough of his character. Here was his Facebook post on the situation:

Then there's Karen Ashley who portrayed Aisha Campbell, the 2nd Yellow Ranger in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Seasons 2 &3. Like Steve, she also declined. Here's what she had to say on the subject in this expert from "Uncensored Radio":

Matt Austin who portrayed Bridge, the Green Ranger of Power Rangers SPD was never contacted by Saban to appear despite a previous tweet rumoring that he was, but here's what he had to say about this subject on YouTube:

What do I think? Well, I believe this is unfair, but stuff like this can happen. Keep in mind that the show has been filmed in New Zealand since Ninja Storm, so it may be hard to get people from MMPR-PRWF all the way from the USA to get there because of airfare and what not. Hopefully, Saban Brands will fix this somehow and I will keep you up to date on this as information develops.
