Lionsgate and Saban Brands recently announced they’d be launching a rebooted film based on the Power Rangers, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this gave them some inspiration.
Khan’s credentials make it clear he’s a talented filmmaker, but it may be a short film based on a beloved children’s franchise that gets him the most recognition.
Here’s what Khan had to say about the project.
“Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the FAN FILM. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don’t send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version is on youtube.”
Let’s hope the real Power Rangers reboot looks like this.
The film has been taken down from Vimeo, but is still currently being hosted by Youtube. Apparently “Power Rangers” owner Haim Saban is NOT happy with this reboot and is pursuing legal action to take it down.
Joseph Kahn tweeted, “Saban is trying to shut Power/Rangers down.” “If you’d like to keep watching, tell them to stop harassing me. Every image in Power/Rangers is original footage. Nothing was pre-existing. There is no copyrighted footage in the short. I am not making any money on it and I refuse to accept any from anyone. It was not even Kickstarted, I paid for it myself. This was made to be given away for free. It is just as if I drew a pic of Power Rangers on a napkin and I gave it to my friend. Is it illegal to give pic I drew of a character on a napkin to someone for free? No.”
