Default Turbo Filming Timeline?

It has been said that Turbo : A Power Rangers Movie was filmed in the middle of
Zeo. Now besides Adam's hair, I found another thing to disprove this. It was
said when Austin St. John shot the Turbo movie it was before he was even in
consideration to be the Gold Ranger. But as I watched the Turbo behind the
scenes video today, in preparation for tomorrow's T:APRM anniversary, I noticed
something. I know not many have this video I'll describe it best I can. Jason
Narvy and Paul Schrier were interviewing cast members. They were talking with
Austin outside of his trailer. They said how he used to be the Red Ranger, and
then Austin said how he wasn't a Ranger anymore. Then Paul said that he
thought Austin was, and Austin said that first he was the Red Ranger, then he
was the Black and Gold Ranger, and now he's not a Ranger. Sounds to me like it
was filmed after Zeo.

Not exactly. Pre-production began during the middle of Zeo, and likely some
principal photography. Some scenes were defintely filmed towards the end of
Zeo, also. Hence the movie having Bulk & Skull as cops again. It was written
without much knowledge about where the show was going!

This is true and false. He was signed up to be in T:APRM in the pre-production
phase. Around that time, they decided to go with Jason for the new Gold Ranger,
due to his availability and other factors about their original choice to be
Gold Ranger (Brad Hawkins). You have to remember, as well. Austin & Amy did the
"Blast From The Power Past" appearances in June 96. These were shot just before
the filming of the Jason as Gold episodes (slates for those episodes from the
end credits are late June). It's quite unlikely they got Amy to do it without
it having something to do with her being in the movie, as promotion.

>But as I watched the Turbo behind the

Notice on some of the jungle scene slate shots, the bulk of the movie was shot
in November 96. I'm pretty sure Steve Cardena's absence in "Good As Gold" has
something to do with the filming of T:APRM (he only does a voice in that
episode, which is quite odd). Though I can't figure out exactly what it means.
Maybe they were trying to phase him out early or something.

>I know not many have this video I'll describe it best I can. Jason

This was in the Power Playback special, sort of. "I really don't wanna talk
about it..."

Movies usually take weeks or months to film, obviously. Depending on when that
interview was shot, he'd be Gold Ranger or not. There's also the chance he was
merely going on what he was told would happen with the series. We can only
guess.

You know who we need to answer this questions? Paulie. He'd know, having been
in the film himself.

Ok, well I remember a big discussion a few months ago where someone said it was
filmed in mid Zeo. Although that would mean scenes with David Yost were shot,
and that would mess everything up.

Interesting, I never looked that closely as to what would be on the slates.

The general rumor for that was he eventually came back after leaving at the end
of Zeo. Only to find his role in the film had totally been cut down to nearly
nothing. He walked off the set again. This was all from Oxmouze, who rumors are
heavily conflicting (he's told people countless versions of Yost walking off
the set. From the cutting down of using his character, to torment by fellow
cast members about his sexuality! I kid you not! They all conflict with other
rumors, of course, and nobody from those days is talking).


>Interesting, I never looked that closely as to what would be on the slates.

Always a valuable source of finding when things were filmed. End Credit
bloopers are littered with them, dating back to MMPR 3 and ending with "Dark
Specter's Revenge, Part 2" (at least here in the states).

no I'm sure he never thought of that some people just don't realize that filming a movie takes much longer to deal with even longer than a TV show does.

Wasn't this all debunked though? Didn't it turn out that the movie was produced after Zeo and they just didn't worry about wrapping up Zeo storylines. Since Zeo was considered a failure.

It is interesting that there were whispers of Yost walking out due tp ridicule of his sexual orientation. I didn't know there were every any rumors of that. But at the time they obviously weren't taking seriously. Not until Yost confirmed them himself years latsr.

The idea of the movie being shot Mid Zeo originally came from Mark Oxman. But we later learned that wasn't true. I think it was something to do with Chris Funaro finding a rough draft for Turbo years later. For awhile there it was a fandom myth though.
