Go, go prehistoric era!
The kid-friendly heroes of Saban’s Power Rangers return to the land before time for its 22nd season next year with Power Rangers Dino Charge. The series will air on Nickelodeon in 2015, and Bandai America is slated to create a new dinosaur-themed toy line pegged to its launch.
Dinos are a big draw in Japan and will continue the Power Rangers’ strong success overseas, according to Bandai CEO Akihiro Sato. And by returning to the Jurassic influence that also gave the world Power Rangers Dino Thunder in 2004, “we know fans will find this next season larger than life,” said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands.
In Dino Charge, the Paragon Prisms were given to a dozen dinosaurs for safe keeping by an alien, but they were lost when asteroids hit the Earth and wiped out the dinos. Now in the present day, an intergalactic bounty hunter starts sniffing around Earth looking for the Prisms in order to harness their power and annihilate the world, so a team of Power Rangers forms to find the Prisms first and fight the bounty hunter and other threats with dino-powered swords, blasters, Zords (in Power Rangers lingo, large fighting machines) and Megazords.
No need to wait till next year for a new season of Power Rangers, though — Power Rangers Super Megaforce, the 21st season of the franchise that debuted in 1993, premieres Feb. 15 (noon ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.
