Hosted by: Lisa J, Jer, and Tristan
Topics: We talk with Brian Ward of Shout! Factory about producing the “Power Rangers: From Mighty Morphin to Lost Galaxy” box set and the Power Rangers DVDs in general. He answers questions about bonus features, quality of episodes, domestic and international masters, and more.
UPDATE – 6/12/12
Here a follow-up question about Blu-ray:
NPS: Will we be seeing DVDs go to Blu-ray as well? Are there plans, even down the road?
Brian Ward: No plans for BD. The masters aren’t HD compatible in their present state. If Saban decides to go back and recut the entire series from the original film elements, maybe. But I’m not sure I see the value in that, given the nature of 16mm film. Even with an HD transfer, there’s going to be a lot of grain and visual pitfalls. So, no, I don’t really see it happening anytime soon.
