Power Rangers Wild Force is the tenth anniversary season of the Power Rangers franchise, based on the Super Sentai series Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, which itself was the 25th anniversary of Super Sentai.
Power Rangers Wild Force takes place in 2002. The first part of the series was originally broadcast from February to August 2002 on the Fox Kids television block. Following the sale of Fox Family Worldwide, including Saban Entertainment, to Disney by Haim Saban and News Corporation, Fox Network's parent company, the show was moved in the fall 2002 to ABC's new Saturday morning block, ABC Kids.
Wild Force is the first and only season to be under the copyright of Disney Enterprises. Disney had bought Power Rangers partway through the run of Power Rangers Time Force. It was the last season to be produced in the United States by MMPR Productions as pre-production for Wild Force began before the buyout as well as they still had a contract for Fox Kids. When this expired, the series moved to ABC Kids in September 2002. Following this season, production of the Power Rangers franchise moved from California to New Zealand, which resulted in many crew members and all voice actors being laid off.
