ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POWER RANGER ROLES are a group of five teens 18-23 years to play 15-19 years. They are all nice looking, charismatic, energetic, outgoing and confident. They must have SUPER HERO LOOKS with average height and in great physical condition. Martial arts or gymnastics is a plus, but not mandatory. We are hoping for a very young looking cast this season.
[RED RANGER – REESE] Any ethnicity male, 18 – 23 to play 17-19 years. Reese is an attractive young man with super hero looks and a nice athletic build. He is a natural leader with honorable intentions. He is a much disciplined young man.[BLACK RANGER – BARON] All ethnicity Male, 18 to 23 to play 17-19. He has good looks with a slim build. He is fearless, fun and athletic. He wears his heart on his sleeve.[BLUE RANGER – PARRY] Any ethnicity Male, 18 to early twenties to play 16-19 years. He is a bit on the nerdy side. He is a studious and highly intelligent.

[PINK RANGER – SADIE] Any ethnicity, 18 to 23 to play 16 to 19 years. Average height. Sadie is a beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent and confident. She is very intuitive and genuinely cares about others.

[YELLOW RANGER – AVA] Any ethnicity, 18 to early twenties to play 16 to 18 years of age. Average height. Ava is STUNNING and athletic. She is generally unflappable and tough, but has a heart of gold. A young Angelina Jolie type.

Yep, everything you’ll need for said auditions. And for my fellow toku fans, I can now hereby confirm that the 20th season of Power Rangers will be based off of Tensou Sentai Goseiger and not any later Super Sentai series like many had predicted. And because they haven’t formally announced the series yet, the show still doesn’t have an official title, though the name “Power Rangers Megaforce” was trademarked last year by Saban Brands last year, so that may still possibly be the title. Anyway, here’s a little sneak preview of what the next team of Rangers will look like:

A fitting bunch to represent the 20th Anniversary celebration of the Power Rangers franchise, don’t you think?

Anyway, some possible spoilers: This group will use card-based attacks, which will include special cards for morphing and summoning their zords. And a new twist on the zords: instead of constantly summoning new zords to create some massive thrown-together eyesore, the will summon attachable zord heads which will unlock new combinations and special moves. In the original Goseiger, they went up against three different enemy organizations, with one enemy constantly reappeaing, but they might not include all three if they don’t run it for two seasons. And yes, there is a sixth ranger, but it won’t be another teenager, or human for that matter!

Aright, enough spoilers for today. Just get out there and start sending in you resumes! That goes for all of you that have been asking about this new updated info since last June.

UPDATE: As of Friday, May 25th, they have stopped accepting new auditions for this next season of Power Rangers, and are now moving onto the next stage of the process, whittling down the number of applicants. Currently, they have about 50 people per role, so it will probably be awhile before we hear anything about an official cast. And yes, there has been unofficial confirmation from people auditioning that one of the roles is for a Black Ranger, confirming a Goseiger adaption. Yes, I know that some of the casting sides were straight out of Go-Kaiger episodes, but that doesn’t mean diddly squat at the moment.

Long Overdue UPDATE: To anyone still interested, I posted this story months ago, and the audition process for this future season of Power Rangers (a.k.a. Power Rangers Megaforce) has been over. The new cast has been picked and revealed already, so please, DO NOT POST ANY MORE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW! This is NOT a casting agency website, this is just an informational fan blog. I have no influence over the casting process whatsoever, I’m just a fan like the rest of you. So unless you want to get spammed like crazy, please stop leaving you personal information. And just to be clear, I have no idea when they will be auditioning for future Ranger series, so don’t ask about that either.

GARO Makai Battle Chronicle Opening

Alright, GARO fans, the new season of GARO has just recently debuted, and the opening for it has made it’s way to us. So here it is, the opening for GARO Makai Battle Chronicle:

Very operatic. I’m very surprised that I’m not into this series as much as some of you. Oh well, enjoy!

Power Rangers Samurai Episode Titles Revealed!: Dates? Who needs dates?

It’s been about, I don’t know, two months since we’ve heard anything new come about Power Rangers Samurai, for reasons unknown (and hopefully benign). Well, someone managed to find out the episode titles for the first four episodes of the next season of Power Rangers Samurai! (Sorry, still no confirmed dates for when they’ll air.) Here’s what we’re looking at so far:

17 – Broken Dreams (TBA)

18 – The Ultimate Deal
(TBA)

19 – Origins, Part 1 (TBA)
(formerly Call of the Red
Ranger)

20 – Origins, Part 2 (TBA)
(formerly Rise of the
Megazord)

There you go, episodes 17-20. The only thing we have so far are titles, no descriptions, no dates, nothing else. You could probably make an educated guess on what the episodes will be about based on the Shinkenger episodes, but since they have been know to skip, I wouldn’t go in a straight order. And if 19 and 20 really the “Origins” episodes, then that puts all of this sometime later this fall, assuming any of it is true. Oh well, I’m sure Nick will announce something over the next couple of months.

Mountain Blaster Turbo Power!: Is Blake Foster returning to Power Rangers?

Do you by chance remember Power Rangers Turbo? More importantly, do you remember this kid?:

For those of you unfamiliar with this series (lol), this is Justin, the Blue Turbo Ranger. His character was introduced in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, and the kid that played Justin, Blake Foster, was both a replacement for Steve Cardenas (Rocky from MMPR season 2 to Zeo) and the youngest actor to ever portray a Power Ranger. Well, now little Blake is all grown up, he’s finished with school, but it looks like he might not be finished with Power Rangers just yet.

Ahh, they grow up so fast...

Blake Foster recently attended the Anime Festival Orlando Convention, and a staff member at the convention “overheard” something very interesting Foster was talking about with another conventioner.

Here’s a paraphrase of the supposed conversation:

Fan: Are you going to come back to acting?
Blake Foster: I’m thinking about it. I’m done with school now.
Fan: Would you come back to Power Rangers?
Blake Foster: I’d like to. They’ve asked if I’d be interested, I don’t know if it’d be as the same character or someone new.

Well, if this is true, then that would certainly be interesting, to say the least. It’s certainly within the realm of possibility. They’ve brought actors back in the past, whether it was to reprise an old role or have them take on a new one (Power Rangers Samurai currently has three actors that fit that description). And since open casting calls for next year’s batch of Power Rangers are just around the corner, there could be a real possibility that they could bring Foster back in either his old role or in a brand new role. Either way, it would be cool to see him in Power Rangers again. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

Saban to begin Casting Call for Power Rangers 2012!: YES!!!!!!!!!!!

According to Fury Diamond of Ranger Crew, Saban will be holding open casting calls for next year’s version of Power Rangers! Here’s what he posted:

“My source has informed me that Saban is holding an open casting call for the next Power Rangers series in a few weeks.  I’ll post more information when I get it.
If you plan on auditioning, get your audition tape ready.”

This is AWESOME! Oh, crap, I have to prepare! And if you interested, start getting ready NOW.

UPDATE: (8/14/11) I’m not sure how long ago this happened, but apparently Saban has CANCELLED the casting calls. Here’s a new quote from Fury Diamond of Rangerboard:

My source has informed me that they cancelled the “big open casting event”.

They didn’t give me a reason why this occurred.  Maybe they need more time before casting or they want to be low key for now.  I’ll keep you guys updated if I hear anything else.

He posted that two days ago apparently, sorry I didn’t report on it before now, I wasn’t aware of this before today. My apologies to anyone who was interested in auditioning. And I’ll try to keep you guys posted on any new info that comes out about this. Hopefully, they will go through with it in some form or another. Just gotta keep our fingers crossed.

UPDATE: (8/22/11) They are holding auditions, just much more low key. In fact, they’ll be going from Monday 8/22 thru Thursday 8/25. For more info check this post. Good Luck out there!
