Default Tzachor views Disney Seasons as uncanon?

So Jonathon Tzachor wants to consider the Disney seasons non-canon.

http://www.rangerboard.com/showthread.php?t=145452

I think people are overreacting about this. Funaro said that Tzachor got overruled when he wanted the Disney seasons off the official website. So obviously Saban Brands is not on board the idea of making seasons non canon. And nor should they be. It makes no business sense. So I don't think we have too much to worry about.

The Disney seasons were cannon. PRDT's "Legacy of Power", the team-ups and other mentions of Rangers, allies villains from the first PR seasons prove that. He just can ignore all of that. We even see the original MMPR team in one PRDT episode!

I agree with Tzachor.

Since he can't get what he wants all he has to do is to write them out of continuity.

Same basic principal, plus Saban can still sell toys of that crap.

Be REAL EASY with a throw away line too.

i think it would be unfair to the diseny era power rangers to get rid of them out of canon and from what he seems to want to do aka remove them from exsistence. I feel that thiou they were not the best they still deserve to be preserved and remembered in canon.

I don't care how the show is made. It's made for american/western audience who cares about continuity so why should american/western fans accept something that's relevant to eastern style of fiction?)

- Tzachor treats PR as his own and will do what he wants and feels like and yes, he wants the show to be succesful but only in his own way. Tzachor L-O-V-E-S Sentai and wants PR to be basically Sentai with english-speaking cast. Was pressed for 9 years he couldn't work on PR. Some Lee Marshall woman who worked on MMPR Productions posted on her Facebook "Jonathan is great, everything he does is for right reasons and good for the show, you don't know him, you wouldn't have the show without him" blah blah fans-suck-BS

- Chris says again he had 2 sources going on "Disney season are out" and thinks with Ricardo Medina's return it basically confirms that WF will be treated as the last season before Samurai.


Quality of the podcast is bad (I don't get why some voices are pushed to the right speaker and some to the left) so it's a pain to listen. Maybe someone will do the rest or maybe I will manage to get through it all. And frankly, it's REALLY hard to know which parts of what Chris says are his personal opinions/interpretation and which are some inside-production scoop so take everything in this podcast with a BIG grain of salt.

EDIT 1: I'm in the 23rd minute and it's getting hilarious. These people in the podcast think they're some superior part of the fandom, or 'teh seriouz' PR & fiction analytics and experts LOLOLOLOLOLOL

EDIT 2: OK they've toned down the superiority thing but here comes another thing. 50 minutes in they complain about comic reboots and how it's bad because because of this lack of continuity and canceling of previous events there's lack of feel of consequences and it's hard to get into. But that's how PR has been for several years, basically rebooting itself every year. And Chris at the beggning kinda tried to defend eastern style of writing and lack of universe-continuity. So yeah, PR gets a pass because it's eastern-based yet american comics don't because they're american? LOL They've said reboots are lazy writing. I call eastern writing with lack of care for continuity exactly the same.

ciaranred, you are forgetting one thing, Tzachor is not the owner. The owner has already overruled him as proven by powerrangers.com. Doesn't mean Tzachor can't ignore all Disney seasons and only refrence pre-Disney seasons. Also doesn't mean Tzachor can't edit out any Gokaiger footage that shows Ranger costumes used during the Disney seasons. Also doesn't mean he can't add in a line that says the Earth has been completely alien/other type of PR villian free since whatever year Wild Force took place in (assuming he can get away with that), if he does that he writes them out of continuity of the Saban seasons but creates the continuity of the Disney seasons.

From Rangerboard all based on that one podcast I linked to earlier:

- Then they discuss how Kamen Rider sucks, how Samurai suuuuuper sucks and how RPM was good
- Then they discuss how 'autistic' the PR fandom is and how people like what's old stuff even if it sucked before (they bring Deca example), one guy mocks when fan like 'adult' stuff
- Then they dwell into comic books reboots and continuity around 50 minute mark. They complain about comic reboots and how it's bad because because of this lack of continuity and canceling of previous events there's lack of feel of consequences and it's hard to get into.

- around hour mark they discuss what could potential PR reboot look like

But it's all their fan opinions, nothing with inside scoop except for the part when it appears dubbing Shinkenger and airing it as PR was actually considered at one point.

Funaro never said that Tzachor sucks. He actually made it clear that Tzachor is a good guy that honestly cares about PR. Its just that his ideas of what PR is totally flies in the face of what the fandom wants out of PR.

Chris wouldn't even be worried about contunity if it we're for the adaption of the latest sentai that we are going to get in a few years ( the big team up style sentai).

But Chris is more concerns with Jonathon's desire to copy sentai scene by scene. And feels that fans should do a handwritten or typed letter writing campaign. But one where they are rational and simply state what they want in the franchise ( not calling for Jonathon's head or something crazy like that).

But until something is explicitly stated on screen I am not going to accept word of god in this case. There is just too much evidence that PR is one universe ( save maybe RPM ).
