Power Rangers Wild Force is an American television series created by Haim Saban (but acquired by The Walt Disney Company as part of the recent acquisition of the entire franchise) and the tenth season and anniversary of the Power Rangers franchise, began airing on February 9, 2002 on Fox Kids. Power Rangers Wild Force comprises 40 episodes and concluded its initial airing on November 16, 2002 on ABC Kids. Wild Force uses footage and elements from the Super Sentai series Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. Regular cast members during Wild Force include Ricardo Medina, Jr., Alyson Kiperman, Phillip Jeanmarie, Jessica Rey, Jack Guzman, Philip Andrew, Ann Marie Crouch, Ilia Volok and Sin Wong.

Power Rangers Wild Force takes place in 2002. The first part of the series was originally broadcast from February 9 to August 10, 2002 on the Fox Kids television block. Following the sale of Fox Family Worldwide (renamed ABC Family Worldwide) including Saban Entertainment (renamed BVS 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 (formerly Disney's One Saturday Morning).

Wild Force was the first and only season to be under the copyright of Disney Enterprises. Disney had bought Power Rangers (along with other Saban properties) of the final 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 14, 2002. Following this season, production of the Power Rangers franchise moved from Los Angeles to New Zealand, which resulted in many crew members and all voice actors being laid off.

Wild Force was the last series created by Saban Entertainment before Disney acquired the franchise in October 2001. Saban produced the pre-production, the promos of the series, created the logo and a song that was introduced in the end of the episode "The End of Time, Pt. 3" of Power Rangers Time Force. Saban sold their properties to Disney when the shooting of Wild Force began, so now the series was owned by Disney but produced by MMPR Productions, which still has remnants of Saban.
