San Diego Comic Con 2016 is less than two weeks away and the panel information is beginning to be released! We’ve been keeping our eyes out for any Power Rangers panel news (what with the movie cast mentioning they’d be at the show this year) and so far we haven’t been disappointed – there’s two panels on Friday, July 22nd that deal with or probably deal with the Power Rangers!
First off – at 11:30am in room 5AB is the BOOM! Studios Power Rangers panel with host Yoshi Sudarso:
In January, BOOM! Studios launched Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a new comic series based on Saban Brands’ hit ’90s live-action children’s TV series about a group of ordinary teenagers who “morphed” into superheroes to save the world from evil. Series writer Kyle Higgins, cover artist Goñi Montes, The Ongoing Adventures of Bulk and Skull writer Steve Orlando, editor Dafna Pleban, Saban Brands director of development and production Melissa Flores, and Saban Brands director of global consumer products Jason Bischoff talk about the series, the spinoff Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Pink, and the everlasting popularity of these “teenagers with attitude.” Moderated by stunt performer and actor, long-time Power Rangers superfan, and Blue Ranger on the current season of Power Rangers Dino Super Charge, Yoshi Sudarso. Plus everyone in attendance will receive a free Power Rangers item!
That’s right – the Dino Charge Blue Ranger is hosting! One can only imagine how much fun that panel is going to be. We will do our best to be there to cover it!
And later on that same day at 8:00pm in room 29AB is the Shout! Factory and Scream Factory panel:
Brian Ward (DVD producer) and Jeff Nelson (senior marketing director) make exclusive announcements, deliver sneak peeks of video from upcoming releases, and more.
Brian Ward likes to drop news on Power Rangers DVD releases in these panels. Will we get an announcement of Power Rangers Dino Thunder season set, or possibly something else related to Super Sentai? Stay tuned to TokuNation.com for your complete SDCC 2016 coverage!!
