Power Rangers Beast Morphers is bringing back a familiar face…or perhaps, composer?
Noam Kaniel is set to return for the 26th season of Power Rangers to produce the season’s music and theme song. Kaniel has been with the Power Rangers brand since 2011, first composing the theme song for Power Rangers Samurai.
Since then, Kaniel has been on board to create theme songs for Power Rangers Megaforce, Power Rangers Dino Charge, and Power Rangers Ninja Steel – the entirety of the Saban Brands era.
Kaniel’s theme songs have become infamous for remixing different variations of the classic “Go Go Power Rangers” tag line. Power Rangers Beast Morphers is expected to continue that trend.
Haim Saban first introduced Kaniel to Power Rangers as a result of their long-standing friendship dating back to 1978. Kaniel moved to Los Angeles over 40 years ago to partner with Haim Saban in creating music for various animated children’s shows.
Power Rangers Beast Morphers will be the first season to air under Hasbro’s leadership after the toy giant acquired the franchise in mid-2018. However, very little has changed from the Saban Brands era thus far. Chip Lynn returns as Executive Producer, Becca Barnes and Alwyn Dale return as the show’s writers, and now, Noam Kaniel returns to produce the show’s music.
The season will have 22 episodes, and air on Nickelodeon in early 2019 (click here to recap).
Hasbro’s Power Rangers Beast Morphers toys will begin hitting store shelves in Spring 2019. Fans can check out the official Power Rangers Beast Morphers synopsis below, starring Rorrie Travis as Devon the Red Ranger, Jasmeet Baduwalia as Ravi the Blue Ranger, and Jacqueline Scislowski as Zoey the Yellow Ranger.
Set in the future, a secret agency combines a newly discovered substance called “Morph-X” with animal DNA to create the Power Rangers Beast Morphers team. The Rangers must fight off an evil sentient computer virus bent on taking over the source of all Ranger power, the Morphin Grid itself. Featuring never-before-seen leather suits and an all-new beast-themed arsenal (including dynamic new Zords), fans should get ready for a season full of secret ops and morphinominal fun.
The season also stars Liana Ramirez as Roxy, Colby Strong as Blaze, Abraham Rodriguez as Nate, Cosme Flores as Ben, and Kristina Ho as Betty.
Kaniel’s return to the franchise was confirmed by Twitter user @ThePowerScoop.
