2013 Power Rangers Casting Resumes

April 30, 2012:

Continued thanks to Dark Blaze on Rangercrew.com for providing us now with the Yellow Ranger Casting Side.


FEMALE YELLOW RANGER SIDES - AVA


EXT. PARKING LOT - DAY Silas stands outside looking maliciously toward an ambulance. AT THE AMBULANCE, AVA (Ranger) stands at the back of the vehicle. A WOMAN PARAMEDIC starts to come out the van’s open rear doors.


AVA

No!


AVA pushes the Paramedic back inside and moves in behind her. Inside the Ambulance a YOUNG BOY PATIENT lies on a gurney. AVA looks to her and it’s clear she won’t let her pass.


AVA

You’re staying here.


PARAMEDIC

What are you doing? People’s lives come before the stones.


AVA T

hat’s not it! You’re a paramedic, right? You can’t go out there. (looking to the kid) You have to do your job and make sure he makes it safely to the hospital.


A darkness comes over AVA.


AVA

I... couldn’t do anything. Last year my little sister collapsed... I raced her to the doctor but on the way she took a turn for the worse. I lost her.


PARAMEDIC

I’m sorry.


AVA

I didn’t know what I was doing. If someone like you had been there she might have made it. (re: the sick boy) Please. Stay with him.


PARAMEDIC

But Silas won’t let us pass.


AVA

I’ll handle him.


PARAMEDIC

But how?


AVA

I’ll act as a decoy.

(suddenly inspired) That’s it! I’ll go out there dressed as you! That’ll give the ambulance time to go.


PARAMEDIC

That’s too risky. What if he notices right away?


AVA

Then I’ll fight him. I’m not afraid.


AVA puts her hand on the sick boy’s hand.


AVA

I have to do this. I won’t let what happened to my sister happen to this kid.


April 24, 2012:

Casting Sides:

Ranger 1 (Blue Ranger) Casting Side:

EXT. FIELD A teenager, RANGER 1, walks toward a sword that juts up from the ground. He then looks up as he sees... a Cyborg Warrior approaching.


CYBORG

I’ve been waiting.


RANGER 1

Jake?


RANGER 1 walks forward to meet him.


RANGER 1

I didn’t believe but it’s true.

(pauses a beat) You are my brother!


RANGER 1 grabs the Cyborg, trying to get through to it.


RANGER 1

Please open your eyes. Please remember me!


The Cyborg swiftly punches the young man in gut and sends him

1flying back. The Cyborg takes the sword from the ground.


RANGER 1

C’mon, I can bring you back. You’re human.


RANGER 1 pulls his own sword and postures with the blade. The Cyborg turns coolly.

CYBORG

So you’re imitating me?


RANGER 1

Please remember!


RANGER 1 sends an energy blast hurtling through the air from his sword but the Cyborg easily deflects it. RANGER 1 is shocked.


CYBORG

I now have a perfect mechanical body. I am a loyal warrior for the empire. I know nothing of this “brother” you speak of...


The Cyborg turns to leave. Emotions welling up, RANGER 1 rushes after him.


RANGER 1

That can’t be true! You’re lying!!!


He grabs the Cyborg’s shoulder from behind.


Ranger 1

Jake!


This only makes the Cyborg wheel around and viciously hit RANGER 1. Their swords clash and they duel.


RANGER 1

Remember who you are!


RANGER 1 is knocked to the ground. He grabs at the Cyborg’s leg.


RANGER 1

You’re a man. Not a machine!


Dismissing RANGER 1’s pleas, the Cyborg shakes him off and walks away.


Defeated and emotional, RANGER 1 watches him.


RANGER 1

You really are lost to me.


Ranger 2 (Silver Ranger) Casting Side:

EXT. CITY, STREET DAY RANGER 2 walks along. He’s despondent.


RANGER 2

My Morpher... What am gonna do?!


He reaches the corner of a building and turns right into an older man riding a bike! They collide and both fall to the ground. The older man, RYAN, gets up and moves to help.


RYAN

Hey, are you okay?


RANGER 2 (embarrassed)

Ah, I’m fine. Getting up, RANGER 2 sees man’s face and reacts.


RANGER 2

(GASPS) ... Could you be?! The Red Ranger of the Star Force! You’re Ryan Jones, right?


RYAN

I am. But how did you know that? (then back to the issue) Anyway, are you hurt?


RANGER 2 bounces up. The last thing he wants is to look injured in front of a Legendary Ranger.


RANGER 2

I’m fine. See? I’m perfectly okay.


RANGER 2 then aggressively does some martial arts stances to “peacock” for the man.


RANGER 2

After all, I’m the Silver Ranger!


RYAN

Silver Ranger?


RANGER 2

Yes!


RYAN

RYAN You’re the kid that just joined the Mega Force?


RANGER 2 takes Ryan’s hand and shakes it excitedly.


RANGER 2

One and the same. I’m RANGER Smith!


RANGER 2’s excitement suddenly ends, he remembers his predicament.


RANGER 2

Although... right now... I can’t transform.


RYAN
Why not?


RANGER 2
The aliens took my Morpher. I can’t believe it I let that happen.


RYAN

That’s bad but keep your spirits up.


RANGER 2 appreciates advice.


RANGER 2

I’ve admired you and the other Legendary Rangers since I was little.


He remembers his calling and fills with pride.


RANGER 2

So, when I got my Morpher, I was so happy. To suddenly be a Power Ranger. A hero! (then darkening again) But...


RYAN

But?


RANGER 2

If I can’t transform... then I’m no longer a hero. What does that make me?


Pink Ranger and/or Red Ranger Casting Side:

INT. COMAND CENTER - LIVING ROOM - DAY SADIE paces nervously. She checks her watch.


REESE

(O.S.) Are you really that concerned about the time?


SADIE N-not really.


REESE

There’s only one reason a military Officer is interested in the time. To calculate if a mission is on schedule.


SADIE

I’m impressed. I thought you were naive.


REESE Just what are you scheming?

SADIE

I guess it’s out in the open. My orders were to find and delay your team.


REESE

Delay?


SADIE

The Commander is negotiating a deal with Silas. (frankly) We needed to keep you out of the way.


REESE

But he’s a hero. How could he betray us and make a deal with a terrorist?


SADIE

That’s not it! There’s no deal.

It’s just a ploy so he can face Silas alone. He’s doing this to retrieve the stolen Zaferia Stone.


REESE

Regardless, he shouldn’t be on his own.


SADIE

I know it’s dangerous. If he fails, Silas has the power to steal his life force. (earnestly) If that happens, we’ll entrust you with the rest of the Zaferia Stones. That’s another reason I was sent to you.


REESE

Entrust us? But we’re wanted criminals.


SADIE

The Commander knows you’re more than that. That’s why he was willing to risk everything... because he believes in you.


Her watch BEEPS.


SADIE

It’s time. He hasn’t contacted me and that means he’s failed. I’m entrusting you with the rest of the stones. Our survival depends on it.


All of the casting sides have the statement that “Sides Do Not reflect story line of new season.” So the actual stories may change or not even be used in the show. However, for fans of Super Sentai, it is now quite clear that all three casting sides were taken from episodes of Gokaiger. Blue Rangers from Episode 12, Silver’s from Episode 33, and Pink and/or Red’s from Episode 31.


So it now looks like that the 2013 season of Power Rangers will be using Gokaiger, which could make for one HUGE anniversary season.


November 11, 2011:

Wow, this is pretty big.  A memo was sent out to Acting Agencies recently, concerning actors & actresses who auditioned for the next season of Power Rangers.  The memo comes from Iris Hampton, the main person in charge of Power Rangers casting.  The memo reads as follows:

Dear all agents who participated in the Power Ranger casting process,

We want to express our sincere thanks to your clients who recently auditioned for Power Rangers' 2013 season and provide you with a quick update. Since we will be celebrating our 20th anniversary season in 2013, we have decided to elevate the season's creativity to entirely new heights. This will require us to commence production in 2012 rather than 2011. We hope that the great talent we met during our recent auditions will still be available when we recommence casting and promise that you will be the first to know when that will occur. At this time, we plan to resume the casting process March to early April 2012.

So what exactly does this mean?  Well, it possibily sounds like Saban Brands may now be giving all of their focus to the 20th Anniversary Season.  So, it may be that Power Rangers skips over the Goseiger Sentai Season. . .


And instead jumps right into. . .


GOKAIGER!

We will have to wait and see what develops from here, but personally, I am REALLY excited.

 

August 25, 2011:

Last week the casting sides for the next Power Rangers season were released to casting agencies.  However, the sides themselves are exactly the same as those used for the Power Rangers Samurai Casting.  The only exception being that the Green Ranger references have all now been changed to say Black Ranger.  So this does confirm that Saban Brands is now casting people for their Power Rangers adaptation of Goseiger (the team seen above).

As for when the new season will actually air?  I have no clue what-so-ever.  Due to NIckelodeon's . . . eccentric airing habits, it is quite possible that we may not even see the team above until 2013.

And before anyone asks, no I do not know how you go about auditioning for Power Rangers.

Should more news develop on this story, I will post it here.
