'Power Rangers' Fan Film Featurette Goes Behind-the-Scenes
Last week, producer Adi Shankar released the latest installment from his Bootleg Universe, a new short film entitled Power/Rangers. Just a few days later, it was pulled from Vimeo and YouTube after a copyright dispute with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers creator Haim Saban and his Saban Brands company. But the short film came back online over the weekend. Today, Adi Shankar has released a behind-the-scenes video featuring director Joseph Kahn on the set, along with stars Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek.
