Power Rangers is a long-running American children's television series adapted from the Japanese tokusatsu Super Sentai Series. A team of five high school students are selected by Zordon to battle evil. Using martial arts, special weapons, and gigantic robots called "Zords", they protect their city Angel Grove from monsters and witches.
Variety reports that Haim Saban's newly formed Saban Brands company has gotten the rights to the Power Rangers back from Disney. This is the franchise that built Saban's fortune in the mid-1990s.
Saban has put together a deal with Nickelodeon for 20 new Power Rangers episodes. The library of some 700 older segments will start airing on cable channel Nicktoons later this year.Read More
