JDF teases female Green short with Jenna Frank (photo)


Prepare your self.... @jennarfrank #theworldisntready #NDA
Source

Likely for a Bat in the Sun short, but I feel it's worth sharing, and there's a larger discussion to be had.

Jenna Frank made news last year, with headlines like "Jenna Rae Frank Could Be The Next Red Ranger". It was news enough that Google auto-completes "Red Ranger" after her name. For many years, I've felt it's a when, not an if.

Female Green MMPR is another "when" - the movie scratched that itch, then made it worse. From a branding perspective, this is one of the smartest moves I've seen from the House of Frank. Anybody filling those shoes will face undue scrutiny. She's an accomplished martial artist, and teaching martial arts to kids is inarguably one of JDF's skills. And the name.

Do note, Jenna Rae Frank - JRF. In the early days, JDF was keen to have his full name in the credits, because it makes him stand out from other "Franks". The use of a middle name across different press outlets isn't accidental (and it's a recent addition to their social media). The stage is being set.

I may be the biggest critic of JDF, but I'm genuinely excited to see what comes of this.

Thoughts? Speculating about Red Rangers is obviously misplaced, but after the Sudarsos, I'm keen to see more real-world family dynamics influence production.

That's Skye. Jenna is the one he acknowledges.

This thread went downhill, fast.

This seems much more likely than "She's totally gonna be the next red ranger, guys!"

Why is this being treated as anything other than a father putting his daughter in the spot light? JDF has no actual input in writing for the series or any future movies as of right now. If he ended up writing the sequel/reboot then yeah I could see this happening.

Soul of the Dragon wasn't incidental to his influence. If you think he has no input on production and branding, you are mistaken.

I'm pretty sure any sway JDF had with the show went away when Saban sold to Hasbro.

So unless he already had a contract, and thus sold to Hasbro and they didn't buy him out, I find this highly skeptical.

EDIT: Not to mention, that's not even a material the ranger suits are made of, even the Green Ranger V2 suit. Wtf is it even made of? Lmao.

JDF sure had fun leeching off Saban with Tommy popularity. I wonder if it will stick around past the BftG game roster.

Oh wow.

That comment feed made for fascinating reading. So there's brothers in the story, and not just two sisters, at that.

Sounds like a great guy.

Indeed.

Saban was banking on that old MMPR nostalgia, of which Tommy was a huge part (not that it didn't cost, not when JDF annoyed Lionsgate the way he did).

But Hasbro just doesn't need him. So I wonder if Hasbro just aren't returning his calls, and JDF is scratching his head and trying to figure out why?

Kyle Higgins is a Tommy fan, that's why that happened.

My favorite part is it looks like JDF unblocked her when people started to call him out, lmao.

Family dysfunction in the digital age, eh? It's just kinda sad, actually. Irrespective of the people involved.

Because JDF is really good at convincing his fans of things including his level of influence and importance outside of nostalgia's sake. This, given it looks like a take on the Bat in the Sun outfit, is probably for some quick youtube video, maybe he even got them to actually make a full Green ranger video for him or maybe it's another Death Battle thing. Or he just paid for the suit and is trying to shill it out online now, unaware that Hasbro is way worse at copyright infringement than Saban and has absolutely no reason to keep him around.

Or maybe he just got them to steal the concept from the Unworthy fan film.

He has no input on production or branding. Why would you think otherwise?

Well, shit. I knew he was a dick, but I didn't realize how bad it was. Why was this not the first thing anyone brought up when spewing JDF hate was such a big deal? Who cares if he was a jerk at a convention or annoyed lionsgate people, this is a real shitty thing to call him out for and should be the only thing anyone talks about whenever he's at a convention or getting attention online again.

He plays ball.

Don't get me wrong - there is a wide gap between his imagined influence, and his real influence.

There are a few actors who have done notably shitty things, but if it doesn't relate to the show, it usually goes nowhere.

I will point out that her side is only one side of the story and i don't think rb should be in the business of discussing rangers personal family gossip. I would like more actors/show workers to interact with us. Comments should be edited out as it's a bad look for RangerBoard.
Back on topic the suit looks fugly and looks like they just added a skirt to some cheap party store costume.

Pretty much this.
I don't really want to see this thread devolve into that subject matter.
