The Kamen Rider franchise and Super Sentai franchise are both having a big year, together and separately. 2021 marks 50 years of Kamen Rider, and Super Sentai is coming out with its 45th work. That work is the crossover movie Saber + Zenkaiger: Super Hero Senki, which brings the two franchises together.
A trailer for it has been released, promising a July 27 movie theater premiere.
The movie is supposed to have 83 characters — 47 Super Sentai characters and 37 Kamen Rider characters. Kamen Rider Saber started last fall, and Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger debuted in March.
