Power Rangers Animated Series (lost Disney XD pilot; existence unconfirmed; 2007-2009)
In 2009 Disney commissioned an animated pilot for Disney XD based off of the American Tokusatsu series Power Rangers. Very little information is known about this.
One source that mentions this pilot is a Facebook page of a Power Rangers news site. On the same page is a concept trailer for a cancelled animated Power Rangers movie. Another mention of the pilot was on RangerBoard (a forum dedicated to Power Rangers), where Ron Wasserman (who had created music for the first 6 PR seasons) spoke about an animated series coming in 2007, saying that a friend had worked on a promotional for it. However afterwards he has not spoken about it. The third and last mention was from BrandonRagnar on DeviantArt, who claimed to have been hired by Disney to work on an animated series for Power Rangers. In his post he includes a piece of concept art for his redesign of the team. Once again, there have been no mentions afterwards.
Nerd Corps Pitch
Animation studio Nerd Corps Entertainment (now known as DHX Studios Vancouver) pitched a Power Rangers animated series to Disney in the mid-late 2000s. To help sell the idea, a crew of three hastily produced a promotional short over the course of a weekend. Disney turned down the offer.
