Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy (PRLG 2014, sometimes can be referred to as Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: The Reboot Movie, Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy 2014 or Lost Galaxy 14) is an upcoming but long-awaited and much delayed fan-film to the Power Rangers franchise, which is now being pushed back 2 years later for a Summer 2014 release. However, it has nothing to do with the actual TV series itself, it's a fan-film that is being completely and mostly written, co-produced and directed by Anthony Marsh, Jr .
The film is a alternate untold side-story and is eponyously based on Marsh's fan-fiction era of Power Rangers and his point of view of how he sees the franchise in his personal perspective and It is obviously and eponymously based on its same season predecessor of the Power Rangers TV series that aired in 1999, adapted by Saban Entertainment (now known aparent as Saban Brands, inc.) on Fox Kids. Like both, The sentai source -its jungle forest concept- was never used. Marsh's take on Lost Galaxy also borrowed the "Space Opera" genre from its Power Rangers TV counterpart for the movie. The fanfilm will be released to celebrate Lost Galaxy's 15th Anniversary in 2014.
On July 20, 2012, after Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: The Rise of Trakeena has been terminated, the cast in the fan-film l consists big-name actors (excluding Marsh, who is just a regular person) to play the Power Rangers and their villains and allies, with the film set to star Wes Bentley as Tony Marshall , Don Cheadle as Browne Jones , Noomi Rapace as Gwen McQueen , and Marsh as his own character of AJ Weems. Rider Strong is still active to play Billy James in the film. The Rangers in this film are completely different from the ones from the actual Saban-produced series - Leo Corbett, Damon Henderson, Kendrix Morgan, Maya, and Kai Chen, altogether played by Danny Slavin, Reggie Rolle, Valerie Vernon, Cerina Vincent, and Archie Kao respectively - unfortunately, they will not be in this film since this is Marsh's reboot era of the same Power Rangers season because this is considered "The Untold Legacy", thus, they will be referenced in the film throughout. On August 25, 2012, actress and model icon Jerry Hall has been presumed to be cast as the Galaxy Rangers' most known enemy Trakeena after the character was originally to be played by Patricia Heaton before production on the reboot would even begin.
Production will be begin in June 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For post-production, Sony Pictures Imageworks has agreed to handle the visual effects for the film in addtion of composer Christopher Young to do the film score. This will be the first Power Rangers fanfilm to be complete shot in 3D but will also be available in both 2D and 3D formats, respectively.
It will be the first Power Rangers fanfilm - for its production medium - to require both posterboard-made Paper Puppets and, usually, Action Figures to represent as characters and it will be the first Power Rangers fanfilm to be animated in posterized animation and the fanfilm is being edited on Sony Vegas Pro 10 and to be finalized by Windows Live Movie Maker.
Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy 2014 is set 15 years in the near but not too distant future after the actual series' final episode but this is a independent continuity as it will focus on a new group of 4 individuals (minus the one legendary beholder) to wield the mighty power of the legendary Quasar Sabers to become the next generation of Lost Galaxy Power Rangers, teaming with veteran Galaxy Ranger Leo Corbett (Wes Bentley) as they also enact in battles with a rising forthcoming reunited force of evil onboard their Terra Venture space colony, Mark II.
The film will tell a complete original untold back-side story of the Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy series starring mainly the 4 new chosen ones (Anthony Marsh Jr, Noomi Rapace, Rider Strong and Don Cheadle) and one created for Trakeena (Jerry Hall). It will mainly focus on Leo, following his destiny of being the Red Ranger, retaining a close relationship with Gwen McQueen (Rapace), and making 2 complicated choices, in Trakeena's favor of seducing him to join her to conquer Terra Venture, either her joins Trakeena to destroy Terra Venture and his Ranger team, or be with his friends to save the galaxy and defeat her for good. - This is for the audience and fans to decide. Plus, Trakeena, now in her 50s and resurrected, in this film, unlike in the TV series, has developed a split-personality problem. She uses the two personalities (one being her usual evil self and the other being Irene " Tracendra " Lewis - a ballroom opera ballet dancer and the derranged obsessive stalker of Leo's) to seduce and stalk him, and aggressively manipulates him from being with his new Ranger friends. Trakeena/Tracendra's deverse plan also follows her will of alienating and seperating the Power Rangers at hand, causing them to turn against each other..
It is also confirmed for the fanfilm that familiar faces of evil - Furio, Treacheron, Barbarax, and Deviot, will appear.
The fanfilm will also be shot with 100% original footage and using less Gingaman footage as recycled.
