Marvista Entertainment and Saban Brands will showcase the latest incarnation in the Power Rangers franchise at Mipcom in October.

Power Rangers Megaforce will premiere in the US in 2013 on Nickelodeon, introducing new characters and villains.

International buyers at Mipcom will be offered 40 new half hour episodes.

"Haim Saban, who created and produced the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, wanted to ensure this latest iteration of the Power Rangers franchise delivered in terms of entertainment and broadcasters' expectations," said Fernando Szew, CEO at Marvista. "Power Rangers Megaforce is his way of acknowledging 20 years of phenomenal support from multiple generations of viewers."

"We're developing some spectacular marketing support programs for the 2013 launch of Power Rangers Megaforce and will definitely tie the broadcast premieres into the 20th anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise," added Elie Dekel, president of Saban Brands. "It's not often that our industry celebrates this level of sustained success, so we're planning on making a lot of noise."
