It’s so sad to hear the loss of Kiwi former Ninja Storm actor Pua Magasiva. But he will forever be in our thoughts and hearts and last but not least our prayers. Pua will also be safe in God’s memories, as a Kiwi Superhero.
May this man rest in peace and his memory live on in all the people he brought so much joy to.
He was a wonderful person who will be forever missed along with all previous power ranger actors who died before him. Even though he is gone he will never be forgotten he will be ninja storm red forever
Beast morphers doesn’t have to do this but maybe they can dedicate one their episodes to Pua like Lightspeed rescue did for Bob mattan who played Zordon as his second voice actor and like Time Force did for Thuy Trang. At the end of one of the episodes they can put something like “In loving memory of Pua.” They don’t have to if they can’t I just think it would be a nice way to honor a fellow actor from the series
I hope they do
I’m pretty sure they will, I don’t see why they wouldn’t.

Maybe the 9th episode of Beast Morpher S1 might say “In Loving Memory of one of our Legendary Rangers – Pua Magasiva” at the end of the 9th episode. Would that sound nice? 😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔😔
Plus, maybe the 10th episode of Beast Morpher S1 might say “In Loving Memory of our Dino Charge Silver Ranger – Alistair Browning” at the end of the 10th episode as well. Would that sound nice too?
Wait, or perhaps on the special Ranger team up episode with the Beast Rangers and 3 Dino Teams (Mighty Morphin, Dino Thunder and Dino Charge).
Look at these kind, loving, heartwarming words:
“God (that is the Heavenly Father’s name) will wipe out every tear from their eyes. And there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:4
