New NSFW Power Rangers Has A Behind The Scenes Video. It’s AWESOME… And SFW.

The “Not Safe For Work” Power Rangers short film video stirred a ton of debate. Saban, the owner of the popular kid’s franchise, was none too happy about the tone of the “Bootleg”. The video was quickly shut down on Youtube and Vimeo, but the internet had a thing or two to say about that. Fans who were young enough to see Power Rangers come onto the scene, are now old enough to appreciate a darker, more adult adaptation. The internet had NO problem voicing it’s approval of the very rated R version of the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. The video was resurrected, but with some new disclaimer text at the opening among a few other elements of source material disassociation.

Before we start getting too ahead of ourselves, if you happen to have pulled a Beatrix Kiddo and just woke up from a coma that spanned longer than 2 weeks, you need to hit this link first to get caught up…

Ever Want The Power Rangers To Be Darker And Brutal? You Got It… And James Van Der Beek.

Ok… that should sufficiently bring you up to current day knowledge of Power Rangers news, which is slightly ironic because now I’m redirecting this narrative to shoot back in time.

The Power Rangers video was incredible as far as quality  is concerned. There’s more to why that is besides just the desire to make a quality product, but not only did we receive a pretty phenomenal “Bootleg”, we now get an equally impressive behind the scenes video. This is a must see.

The Making of Power/Rangers

If you never knew the new Power Rangers bootleg video topped out at just under 15 minutes, after seeing this behind the scenes video, one would most likely think this was a studio production for a full-length feature film. Adi Shankar, the bootleg’s producer, said the extremely high quality was all a part of the humor and largely IS the joke of it all. He’s spot on with that statement.

Anyone who has seen a fair amount of fan films can attest to the fact that most of them are just “good tries” at paying homage to their source material by creating something original in its name. The quality is always attempted to match that of the original’s, but always falls significantly short. As optimistic fan viewers, we expect that to be the case, throw it out as an avenue of criticism, and alternatively, give praise to it based on the quality it was able to bring while clearly sitting as the underdog in the standings against the original material.

Shankar pulled the rug out from under that fan film notion. This video was legit from front to back with high quality effects/CGI, costuming, casting, action sequences, scripting, sets, shooting/editing equipment, crew, staff, direction, etc. etc. etc… You name it, it was top of the line and that’s pretty unheard of for any fan film/bootleg/parody.

Pretty impressive stuff right? I always want to hear your thoughts on the videos I post, but honestly… I kind of just want to see a ton of James Van Der Beek  memes. Hit up the comments and I’ll see you down there.

If you can’t get enough of “The Beek”, follow me on facebooktwitter and instagramI’ll be keeping an eye out for more of this unexpected appearances.
