This all makes sense I knew I saw a lot of Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Thor in Kyuranger.
No that's not what they were saying.

Bandai of America was looking at marvel because they wanted to see how to expand brand recognition but keep things recognizablely power rangers

- Old Marvel vs Marvel Movies as an idea in how to protect backstory but evolve the brand visually
- Kids should always know a Power Ranger when they see one but be able to realize the differences
So there's no guardians of the galaxy or thor influence

The new power rangers movie is a good example. It still looks like a power ranger but evolves the look for the future

Actually Disney own both Lucasfilm and Marvel so in context yes and no. Both Marvel and LucasFilm share actors and staff so it's safe to say they're both adjacent to each other.

I did say they're both part of Disney. But as I said, Star Wars isn't part of Marvel Studios. Sharing cast and crew doesn't change that fact. Besides which, as Gold Samurai noted above, the Marvel reference is more about reflecting how the Marvel Studios films adapt the source material and modernise it. Kyuranger is to the core concepts of Sentai what the MCU is to the 616.

They don't share staff or actors like it's just a pool you pull from. They're two individual companies with their own hierarchies that are owned by Disney.

Yeah, it's a massively common misconception that just because Disney owns everything means they can combine or pool together without any rhyme or reason.

Best way to see it is as a sort of Pantheon with Disney being Olympus and all the various companies/studios as gods with their own domains, or Disney as a country with the various companies/studios in their own fiefdoms.

I never said that Both Marvel and Lucasfilm are exactly the same. I was referring to the fact that BoA obviously wanted to pull from Movie Franchises that have been successful in recent years.

Sasori Orange with Shishi Red, Chameleon Green and from what it looks like TOQ 4gou
For some reason I feel like TOQ 4gou would do a good job voicing or acting as one of the villains.
Actually it might be a old photo who knows

Can someone translate that has A,B,C,D in front of it.
Unfortunately the more I look at blue the more his suit looks an eyesore compared to the others. That velveteen/plush material doesnt photograph well at all.

Those are the prizes for the campaign, which is the only way to get Aquarius that we know of right now:

A Prize- not sure, could be to appear in something with Kyuranger though, like a guest spot. This goes to 9 people.

B Prize- Appears to be an original SeizaBlaster that will have your name programmed into it, 90 people get this

C Prize- Campaign Original KyuTama (we know this is Aquarius), 900 people get this

D Prize- Campaign Original Handkerchief, 9,000 people get this.

In total you get 9,999 winners.

I just had a random thought. If this gets adapted after Ninja Steel, would this be Neo Saban's Zeo? I'm purely basing this on the pattern of Dinosaurs and Ninjas.

Yeah, not a bad way to end Sentai's anniversary series

A little disheartening to look to Marvel just to help market. I don't need Iron Man and Rocket Raccoon in my Sentai, but they know how to mix serious with silly that Sentai could use just as much as good marketing. Just my thoughts.

I don't think they'd be considered a real Sentai UNLESS they went to that rooftop I'm willing to bet that roof is on one of the buildings at Toei Studios, or at least a building outside that they own.

Tangent: Can you imagine going to work, like an administrative job or something, and bumping into Ex-Aid or Shishi Red? Granted, it'd probably eventually lose it's wow factor, but it'd still be a little cool at least.

While we wait for new teaser,press conference

Let me update something about Kyuranger from twitter





SasoriOrange,ChameleonGreen and ShishiRed

From KajikiYellow actor twitter

He's giving a voice to the character and seem like the girl next to him is the narrator for WashiPink? [or ChameleonGreen but from behind she doesn't look the same to ChameleonGreen]




And from the hashtag #キュウレンジャー  In twitter I found this picture from @onaridayo

There's KajikiYellow and ChameleonGreen and the Neon green ,white blue costume maybe it's a grunt

We've know about the coloured jacket people for a while now. My opinion is that since there is a large starting group of Rangers, I think Jark Matter is made up of many sections or departments like Gaiarc or Gorma. Everyone uses the same grunt, but each section's grunts wear a different colour jacket and may have a unique power.

This is what happens when people misinterpret things. Once again it's been mentioned that bandai just looked at marvel to see how to expand their brand.

Nowhere did they say they want to add marvel characters into Sentai

Companies look to other successful companies all the time for ideas. It's not disheartening

The original observation was "old marvel VS New marvel"

How do we update the look of our main brand but stay true to the original roots

In this case. How do we update the power rangers? Kids should know when they see something it's a power ranger

The new movie is a good example. Updating the look but still looking like power rangers.
