Some readers may have noticed the film trucks gathering at the corner of Cheltenham Rd. The Speculator can reveal these trucks constitute part of the crew currently filming a new series of Power Rangers, with North Head and Torpedo Wharf featuring as the locations.
Devonport residents may be momentarily interested to know that this is actually quite big news in Power Rangers fans circles, as it has been the subject of speculation for some time as to whether there REALLY is going to be another series of Power Rangers, and whether the rumours of filming in New Zealand are true.
You could say therefore, that The Speculator has scored an INTERNATIONAL SCOOP.
However, before our readers, ad clickers and dedicated purchasers of any products or services that are advertised on our site become alarmed by The Speculator’s blossoming ego, it should be noted that Power Rangers is possibly the worst TV series ever made. Editor’s Note: The Speculator has received comments taking issue – some vehemently – with the statement that PW is the worst TV series ever made. Further research has revealed that this statement is in fact not correct. The BBC TV series SS Triangle was actually worse, moving PW to second to bottom place.
Power Rangers is a long-running American entertainment and merchandising franchise built around a live action children’s television series featuring teams of costumed heroes.
In mid-2010, Haim Saban’s Saban Brands Ltd bought the Power Rangers franchise back from Disney for $43 million and will produce a new eighteenth season of Power Rangers, now subtitled Samurai, which will be airing on Sky’s Nickelodeon channel.
Haim Saban is an Israeli-American television and media proprietor. With an estimated current net worth of $3.3 billion, he is ranked by Forbes as the 102nd richest person in America.
