"The Untold Story of Power Begins...."
|This is an article about a Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy Fan-Film.|
The Lost Galaxy series Reimagined.....in 2014.
Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy (PRLG 2014, can be perferred as Power Rangers Lost Galaxy: The Reboot Movie, Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy 2014 or Lost Galaxy 14) is a non-commercial fan-film adaptation, unofficially, to the Power Rangers franchise and is half-based on one of Saban's season entries in the show, of the same name, which was at first being set for a Summer 2014 release, then being pushed back to Fall 2014, as the 10th fan-film project attempt entry of Lost Galaxy and it is officially the first of a actual fan-film series that is currently likely to be made into a trilogy of films starring these Rangers. However, it has nothing to do with the actual TV series itself, it's a fan-film that is being and mostly completely developed (as head writer and now producer) by Anthony Marsh, Jr with the film also edited and completely consulted by Marsh.

The story for the fan-film reboot revolves around 5 new adult individuals - consisting of Tony Marshall , Gwen McQueen , Will James , Browne Jones and Miranda Campbell - begin "their" journey as they retrieve the legendary 3,000+ year old Quasar Sabers to become to new Lost Galaxy Power Rangers while they also travel across the dark centers of space onboard the Terra Venture Mark II space colony. The main villain in this reboot film of the series is Lord Metarex the grand ruler of the Dark Galaxy and leader of the evil Zeon Empire, as he begins malicious conquest to destroy and conquer the entire galaxy.
Starting with this film, Leo and his friends and brother (Mike, Damon, Kendrix, Kai, and Maya) will not be in the reboot nor the new series. This is Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy - reimagined, which means new Rangers, a new take on familar fan-favorite villains (such as Villamax and Treacheron), renewal of the Galaxy powers, zords and lore and, most ultimately, a new Villain. It was been confirmed that the original Magna Defender makes an appearence in this film starting in the middle of it all the way to the climax.
It is the first Power Rangers fan-film - for its production medium - to require both mounting board-made Paper Puppets (with faces of some of the following movie and TV celebrities featured as the characters' likenesses) and Action Figures to represent as the film's characters and it is be the first Power Rangers fan-film to be animated in posterized animation and the fan-film is being edited on Sony Vegas Pro 10 and to be finalized by Windows Live Movie Maker.
A sequel has been announced, but it is likely to be slated for a 2019 release as uncertain. In 2015, an Extended Edition has been confirmed and it's likely that the Fan-Film will be rereleased sometime in 2016, leading to the anticipating release of Marsh's next Power Rangers Lost Galaxy Fan-Film.
Non-Profit/Commercial Marketing and Promotion
Like Marsh did in 2011 for his previously proposed PRLG fanfilm The Rise of Trakeena, which didn't fare well that year and had a small promotion campaign despite its non-existance, the Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy 2014 Fan-Film has a unofficial Facebook Fan-Page for anyone who uses the site to give him some support on the fan-film's existance. The page is more likely made for those who are and/or were fans of the Lost Galaxy series of the show. As of March 2013, its Fan-Page has reached up to 5 likes. As of late November 2013, the fan-film 's fan page on Facebook has now reached more than 60 likes. On March 29, 2014, the fan-page has reached its 100 "Like" milestone.
The fan-film has a unofficial YouTube channel made by Marsh, since August 31, 2012.
The fan film was original projected for a July 4, 2014 release but it later got pushed back due to more time in post-production and multiple cuts being made. It was later going to be pushed back on November 5, 2014 but on August 17, 2014, Marsh has decided to release the film on October 17. On November 4, 2014, after having receiving a copyright notice from CD Baby for a song sample featured throughout the film in a portion, the film was taken down quick and has been again postponed for a November 21, 2014 release.
Early reception for the film was negative. Since its release on YouTube between October 10 to November 10, the fan-film mainly met an even more negative reception.
