Mighty Morphin Power Rangers - It's Morphin' Time! Saban Signs with Shout! for DVD Distribution

May the Power protect your wallet, after this deal for all incarnations from Mighty Morphin' to 2009's RPM, plus other Saban shows

Posted by David Lambert
The secret is out thanks to Home Media Magazine's story, so we can say at last that Shout! Factory has signed the deal to distribute DVDs (and Blu-rays, if they wish, although that's not initially expected) from Saban Capital Group's Saban Brands division. That includes the Haim Saban-created series Power Rangers, including all incarnations of the show from 1993 to 2009:
  • Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
  • Power Rangers Zeo
  • Power Rangers Turbo
  • Power Rangers in Space
  • Power Rangers Lost Galaxy
  • Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue
  • Power Rangers Time Force
  • Power Rangers Wild Force
  • Power Rangers Ninja Storm
  • Power Rangers Dino Thunder
  • Power Rangers S.P.D.
  • Power Rangers Mystic Force
  • Power Rangers Operation Overdrive
  • Power Rangers Jungle Fury
  • Power Rangers RPM
The deal reportedly does NOT include the current incarnation of the show, Power Rangers Samurai, nor does it include the theatrical films spun off from the program (Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie and Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, whose rights have been retained all along by Fox Home Entertainment).

However, the deal DOES include other Saban programs, including Big Bad Beetleborgs (a.k.a. Beetleborgs Metallix), V.R. Troopers, and the short-lived live-action show Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation. The HMM story by John Latchem reports that the "Initial rollout plans for the Saban are slated to begin in summer 2012, according to Shout! Factory, with single-season sets to start and potentially complete-series sets in the future."

Our understanding is that there's more to this than HMM is currently reporting, but then again this is just the initial announcement. Stay tuned and we'll try to bring you more, just as soon as we can!
