When it premiered over twenty years ago, no one imagined that Power Rangers would turn into a global phenomenon of epic proportions. By repackaging the Super Sentai series into a something more palatable for English speaking audiences, Haim Saban created a monster. Today, many of the fans who were around in the beginning have a lot to celebrate with new seasons of the series still being produced in addition to a new film that’s slated for summer 2016. But, how do those fans express that excitement? Why with a convention of course.
For the last four years, fans of the Power Rangers have held a gathering dubbed “Power Morphicon” where every year, they gather with many former cast and creative personalities from the series to chat about anything and everything Power Rangers. Normally, the only way to experience the event is by either being there or waiting for attendee-generated YouTube videos to pop up of the various panels. However, this year, people who couldn’t make it to California can enjoy the convention in the comfort of their own home, live-style.
Starting today at 11am PST, thanks to the fine folks at Shout! Factory, anyone around the globe will be able to watch the happenings in the Pasadena Convention Center live at PowerMorphiconLive.com. The stream will remain active until 5pm PST, so if you don’t have nothing to do today, it’s time to grab that morpher of yours and plop yourself on your couch with your laptop and a beverage from Ernie’s Juice Bar.
