A Full Season of the 15th Incarnation of the Action-Packed Hit Franchise Comes to DVD for the First Time Ever

"Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive Volumes 1 & 2"; First Two Entries in a Five Volume Collection Available on September 18, 2007

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - September 4, 2007) - Five brave teens are all that stand between the power of evil and global domination in "Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive, Volumes 1& 2" coming to DVD on September 18, 2007 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. "Powers Rangers: Operation Overdrive Volumes 1 & 2" are the first two installments in a five volume set that chronicles the adventures of the genetically enhanced super heroes and treats viewers to an exciting interactive game and behind-the-scenes interviews with the Rangers themselves.

The fate of the universe hangs in the balance as the Power Rangers search for the five magical jewels of the Corona Aurora, Crown of the Gods. Long ago, the crown and gemstones were hidden separately to prevent the villainous brothers Moltor and Flurious from using them to further their evil ambitions. Now, with the brothers in search of the crown and its jewels, the Rangers must also search the world from Saint Lucia to the lost continent of Atlantis, unraveling mind-bending mysteries and fighting spectacular battles to find the gems -- or the Dark Forces that covet the Crown will be unstoppable.

"Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive Volumes 1 & 2" each contain six episodes of the exhilarating live action series, as well as an exclusive installment of two ongoing bonus features. "Reserve Ranger Training Course" is a five-level, set-top game that challenges players to recover all five jewels (one per volume) in a simulator training course. "Ranger Profiles" is a five-part series of interviews with the Rangers as they explain their backgrounds, their unique weapons, vehicles and special genetic enhancements, and talk about the powerful lessons their lives as Rangers have taught them.

--  Reserve Ranger Training Course: Level 1 - Black Jewel
--  Ranger Bios: Where did each of the Rangers come from? How did they
    acquire their powers? Learn the history of each of five heroes as
