Background: Saban Brands was established by Haim Saban through Saban Capital Group, Inc. after re-acquiring the rights to the
Power Rangers franchise from The Walt Disney Company on May 13, 2010, who previously acquired his former company Saban Entertainment in 2001 and was reincorporated as "BVS Entertainment". Currently Saban produces the franchise's newer installments for Nickelodeon. In May 2018, Hasbro acquired several of Saban's properties including Power Rangers, and in July 2018 the company was shuttered.

1st Logo
(February 7, 2011-January 28, 2017)

Logo: On the left side of the screen, we see the Earth moving to the left and the sun moving to the center. Then, three red ribbons, two from the right and one from the left, fly in and form the Saban logo (which appears as a revised version of the 1996 Saban Entertainment logo). Once the logo is formed, we see the words "SABAN Brands" with "SABAN" in red and "Brands" in black appearing letter by letter, both set in Avenir. Finally, the sun fades from left to the center and we see some shining stars.

Variant: The print logo is used on Power Rangers Samurai for NDS.

FX/SFX: The ribbons flying and the Earth and sun moving in different directions. Nice CGI.

Music/Sounds: A guitar-driven sounder.

Availability: Common. Seen on every Power Rangers series from Power Rangers Samurai to Power Rangers Ninja Steel (only the first two episodes; the third episode onward uses the next logo), as well as Julius Jr. and Glitter Force (the English dub of Smile PreCure!). Also plasters the Saban Entertainment logos on Netflix copies and television broadcasts of past Power Rangers series. Surprisingly, this doesn't plaster the "Twirly-Doo" logo on the Newvideo DVD sets and Netflix prints of Digimon Adventure.

Editors Note: A decent logo, though considered annoying by some due to its levels of plastering.

2nd Logo
(February 4, 2017-December 1, 2018)

: On a black background, the camera pans around a glass globe with gold continents and transparent oceans (which looks to have lights inside of it) and zooms backwards to the center of the screen. As this happens, the transparent oceans get filled with gold as well. The globe stops in the near-center of the screen and the gold letters "SABAN Brands", and the trademark symbol in tiny print, fade in below the globe.Three streaks then draw themselves into the globe from the left, forming the Saban logo, as the continents disappear from the globe.

Variant: A longer version exists. It starts with three gold strands zooming past and several other strands spreading from the corners of the screen, tipped with bright lights. More strands slowly spread, drawing in the globe as hexagonal lights appear, which draw in the continents. The rest of the logo follows normally, except the animation is slower and the text reads "SCG Films".

FX/SFX: The globe rotating, the gold filling in, the streaks drawing themselves in, the continents disappearing and the text fading in. All very nice CGI.

Music/Sounds: A proud 5-note fanfare with the last note held for a couple of seconds. The longer version uses a repeating four-note twinkling buildup with a violin underscore, before going into a 12-note fanfare (notes 3-6 match the short version), with the 11th note held out for three seconds, and the 12th note (the last note of the short versions fanfare) being held out longer (longer than the short version as well). On the 2017 Power Rangers movie, the music from the film's opening plays over the logo.

Availability: Uncommon. Debuted on the third episode of Power Rangers Ninja Steel and was seen on further episodes of the series. The SCG Films version was seen on the 2017 Power Rangers movie. Starting with Power Rangers Beast Morphers, the Allspark Pictures logo is used instead due to Hasbro's acquisition of most of Saban Brands's properties.

Editor's Note: A worthy successor to the previous logo, one that sadly wasn't able to be used much.
