The Power Rangers are back! With a new cast, a new look and a new network, Power Rangers: Samurai debuts on Nickelodeon Monday, Feb. 7th at 8pm EST before moving to it's regular spot on Sundays at noon on Nickelodeon. Read ALL the way to the bottom for more info on this fantastically fun show!!! :-)
The world's most successful kids action series is in it's 19th season and has moved from Disney to Nickelodoen and just got a shiny, martial-arts-influenced reboot.
Combining comedy with action-filled storylines, the all-new half-hour series features a new cast of Rangers and never-before-seen villains, as well as high-octane action, martial arts and advanced special effects.
The emPOWER movement will launch along with the new series. emPOWER provides parents and kids the tools they need to work together to grow healthy kids and support healthy communities.
emPOWER inspires participation in schools, online and in local communities to demonstrate the Power Rangers values:
* Standing for What's Right
* Teamwork and Cooperation
* Health and Physical Fitness
* Caring and Friendship
I encourage parents to nominate their children for the "Ranger of the Week" on the emPOWER facebook page. Every week the emPOWER site will feature a young person who's making a difference in their family, school or community.
Also, share some tips on getting kids to exercise and eat right - kid-friendly cooking, healthy recipes, ideas for exercising with your kids or keeping kids active during winter months.
Share stores about kids who've had a positive impact on their communities - kids who are putting Power Rangers values into action.
Use the emPOWER program as an introduction to highlight a great kid's organization doing work in schools or communities.
About Power Rangers: Samurai
A new generation of heroes is about to explode out of the darkness to battle bad guys everywhere!
The new Rangers, Jayden, Kevin, Mia, Emily and Mike, harness the mystical Samurai Symbols of Power to fight evil with the elements of Fire, Water, Sky, Forest and Earth.
They are not alone in their struggle. An all-knowing mentor and special spirit animals called Zords aid in their attack against the relentless dark forces.
Tune in to Nickelodoen Sundays at noon to check out the new series.
