Power Rangers Cosmic Fury is the latest iteration of the long-running Power Rangers media franchise and will celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary.
It will also be the third season of Power Rangers Dino Fury as well as the 30th season of the show overall. This is the first time since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers that a cast and storyline has stuck around for three consecutive seasons. Considering this is new territory for a lot of Power Rangers fans, there has been a lot of speculation as to what new things Cosmic Fury will bring to the series and what returning aspects will be there for the old fans.
Warning this article will feature some international spoilers for Dino Fury Season 2. If you do not wish to be spoiled, you have been warned.
Will Cosmic Fury Be a Sentai Adaptation or Original Footage?
One of the biggest questions currently being raised by Power Rangers fans is if Cosmic Fury will use footage from the Japanese Super Sentai series like the 29 seasons before it or if it will be the first Power Rangers season to be fully shot in New Zealand. Evidence seems to suggest that it will be the latter.
For starters, ever since Hasbro gained the rights to Power Rangers, the use of Super Sentai footage in both Power Rangers Beast Morphers and Power Rangers Dino Fury has become increasingly less. It is possible that this was the production teams testing the waters for an all-American season.
When asked about using Super Sentai footage in an interview with ScreenRant, Kai Moya and Jordon Fite, who play the Blue and Gold Rangers respectively, teased that fans should expect something new:
Jordon Fite: I would think we’re doing something new. This is just going off what I think, so I would think we’re going into something new. This is going to be new overall in general.
Kai Moya: Yeah, it’s gonna be something new. I think everything we do is gonna be pretty much original with this.
Can We Expect Returning Rangers In Power Rangers Cosmic Fury?
Considering Power Rangers Cosmic Fury will be the 30th anniversary of the show, it isn’t crazy for Ranger Fans to expect returning Rangers and storylines to the show.
Thanks to international spoilers, we know that we are (kind of) going to get a Beast Morphers crossover episode. The episode featured General Shaw returning to ask for the Dino Fury Rangers’ help after Lokar’s son, Lothorn, escaped from Grid Battleforce. The Grid Battleforce Rangers also appeared, though only through Super Sentai footage and voiceover work. Perhaps Cosmic Fury could be the perfect opportunity for the Grid Battleforce Rangers and the current team of Rangers to finally team up.
Mick Kanic from Power Rangers Ninja Steel also returned in season one of Power Rangers Dino Fury. In the episode, Mick revealed that since the events of Power Rangers Ninja Steel, he has been keeping the Ranger database updated and has met countless Ranger teams across the galaxy. Now that we know that the Dino Fury Rangers are heading to space to take intergalactic villains, this could be a great time for them to cross paths with Mick again.
Lastly, The Illuminerdi reported a while back that David Yost, the original Blue Ranger, signed on to return to Power Rangers for the 30th anniversary. Now that a reunion special is up in the air thanks to recent controversy, Cosmic Fury could be the season that features Billy’s triumphant return.
Power Rangers Cosmic Fury stars Russell Curry as Zayto, Hunter Deno as Amelia Jones, Kai Moya as Ollie Akana, Tessa Rao as Izzy Garcia, Chance Perez as Javi Garcia, and Jordon Fite as Aiyon. Simon Bennett will also return as showrunner.
