The information revealed today is mostly things we either already knew or at least assumed. The venerable Kenji Ohba will of course be returning to the role he originated as Retsu Ichijouji/Gavan. This film also sees the return of Doggie Krueger/Dekamaster & Tetsu/Dekabreak. They previously returned with the the rest of the team in Dekaranger 10 Years After. It was assumed they’d be back again but it’s nice to see it confirmed.
Perhaps the most surprising bit of info revealed by the official Space Squad twitter is the addition of a previously unannounced villain to the film. Mad Gallant! This classic villain from 1985’s Kyojuu Tokusou Juspion has been resurrected to menace to menace heroes one more time. Also returning to voice Mad Gallant is his original actor as well, Junichi Haruta! Much like Grifforzer, Geildon, Apollo Geist & other resurrected villains the new Mad Gallant features a design reminiscent of his original with a few new additions.
Space Squad will be screened in theaters on June 17th and released on Blu-ray & DVD on August 9th 2017!
