The franchise spawned three feature films. ''Film/MightyMorphinPowerRangersTheMovie'' was a big-budget affair with entirely US-produced footage and extensive CGI, set as a NonSerialMovie in an AlternateContinuity to season 3. The second film, ''Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie'' had simply better production values than the TV series, and is within the regular continuity, setting up the premise of the ''Turbo'' season. A third movie is in the works as a co-production between Saban and Lionsgate pictures. Tentatively titled ''[[InCaseYouForgotWhoWroteIt Saban's]] Power Rangers'', it's set to be a ''Mighty [=Morphin'=]'' reboot and the projected release date is January 13, 2017. The screenplay for the movie is being written by Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (''Film/{{Thor}}'', ''Film/XMenFirstClass''), with Dean Israelite (''Film/ProjectAlmanac'') set to direct. Five rangers have already been cast: Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, RJ Cyler as the Blue Ranger, and Becky Gomez as the Yellow Ranger

* YouLookFamiliar: Repeatedly since the move to New Zealand. Ironically, one reason the show features so many {{Fake Brit}}s is to ''avoid'' hiring SAG actors. ** Notably, Kelson Henderson has played or voiced the PluckyComicRelief character in every season between ''SPD'' and ''Jungle Fury'' (and one-off roles in ''Dino Thunder'' before and ''RPM'' after!). ** Katrina Devine played henchgirl Marah in ''Ninja Storm'' and reporter wannabe Cassidy in ''Dino Thunder''. This is unsubtly lampshaded when they pass by each other in the crossover and remark on how pretty the other is. ** Barnie Duncan plays Piggy in ''SPD'' and Toby in ''Mystic Force'', while John Tui plays Cruger in the former and Daggeron in the latter. ** Rick Medina was Cole in ''Wild Force'' and plays NobleDemon Decker in ''Samurai''; probably the most sizable gap between roles.

* PragmaticAdaptation: The original Super Sentai is made for a Japanese audience while Power Rangers goes into {{Syndication}} around the world, as such elements run into ValuesDissonance and are generally smoothed over for Power Rangers. The MonochromeCasting of Sentai is made into a FiveTokenBand for Rangers, sometimes even having a character [[ShesAManInJapan be gender flipped]] to [[TheSmurfettePrinciple improve the female representation]]. In overall reception, Power Rangers does better with the fans the more they create their own work instead of slavishly replicating the sentai. In one case, ''Lost Galaxy'' was [[RecursiveAdaptation redubbed for Japan]] and had better ratings than the original ''Gingaman''.

* {{Sweeps}}: The ''Power Rangers'' season usually airs in spurts from February to November, so the premieres and finales are typically promoted as prime sweeps material.

** ''Megaforce'' did this with its Zords as well. Oddly, this series only referred to the head of the machine as a Zord, except in the case of the Gosei Ultimate Megazord. In total, there were 24 to collect. This is actually a couple fewer than Japanese series.

In 1993, Haim Saban decided to do an American adaptation of the previous year's ''Super Sentai'' program, ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger'', after an unsuccessful prior attempts to adapt previous ''Sentai'' programs such as ''Series/ChoudenshiBioman''. [[CutAndPasteTranslation In a style not dissimilar to Carl Macek's treatment]] of ''{{Robotech}}'', the action sequences from ''Zyuranger'' were intercut with new footage and a new storyline, producing ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'', the first entry in the franchise's history.

moving from the Dino Charge page, it fits better with the franchise as a whole.
Added DiffLines:
* {{Irony}}: The one ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series that [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGoBusters actually uses the phrase "It's Morphin' Time!"]] (And in general a ''lot'' of references to ''Power Rangers'') is being minimally used to skip from ''Megaforce'' to ''Dino Charge''. Especially ironic when you consider that ''Go-Busters'' was allegedly designed with American audiences in mind, hence the use of [[MovieSuperheroesWearBlack black leather costumes]] instead of the traditional spandex garb found in most Sentai shows. Though that being said, most of those references were in the dialogue, which would get replaced even before the editing scissors got to the untransformed scenes.
