that sounds too Sailor Moon style, it might even get ridiculed if they go through with it...btw, even if they were to follow you're idea, they will most likely use the inner planets as the core team (like what they did in Sailor Moon), because those planets are the closest to Earth & the sun.

The furthest planets would probably be made as the 6th & additional senshis.
That's precisely why the Sailor Senshi have those colours. Only Sailor Venus is the yellow member, pink being used for Sailor Moon's upgrades.
^Her power aura was pink but Moon didn't really wear pink.
If the live-action movie of gatchaman released toei will think in something like that.
Venus was likely yellow because you know the color of the planet and it being the metal star
the problem with this is that in Sailor moon, our moon was the central entity & its senshi's primary color was pink. Let's say hypothetically, if Red Nature Ranger's idea does come true, they would not use the moon since it's not a planet...so unless they decide to omit pink, they would have to use it for a planet, and I think it would most likely be Venus, even though its Asian name 金星 is 'metal star' (however the more accurate meaning of the chinese characters actually mean 'gold star'), hence associated with the color yellow.
The reason I think Venus would most likely be linked with pink, at least for this hypothetical planet Sentai, is because it's the only major planet that is named after a female goddess with its astrological symbol being that of the female symbol, hence it's always been a planet that's commonly associated with feminism...and pink is also widely seen as the most feminine color.
If they were to follow according to the planets Asian names, then Venus would be yellow...the only way it would be pink is if they follow the western astronomy...because I really cannot think of any other [major] planet that pink can be linked with. I think it would be alot easier if they just omit pink altogether.
With pink omitted, yellow could represent Venus...or it could represent Saturn too since Saturn's Asian name 土星 means 'earth star'.
Then again, I guess pink can also be linked to Uranus...since Uranus' name 天王星 means 'sky king star'...and you know how sometimes in the world of Sentai, the senshi that has the power of air/wind/heaven/sky is often the pink senshi.
As for red, typically we link that color to Mars for obvious reasons...but in the world of Sentai, red is regarded as the 'leading' color, the most important & primary color on the team. so it would depend on what planet the writers want to be the most central entity planet in the series...if they want Earth to be the most centrally represented planet on the team, then it would have to be linked with red...that would seem like a pretty awkward match IMO...unless they decide to go with Mars as the "leading" entity.
Overall the whole color-linking planets thing is a little complicated for some planets, and I highly doubt this kind of theme would ever be used in Sentai...but it's quite fun to discuss it hypothetically...

We can also rule out:

Another martial arts, animals, or vehicles theme is possible. I hope for a supernatural theme at last, but maybe they'll decide it's too close to Wizard

How is Wizard an obstacle? It'll have finished five months ago by the time the next Sentai starts.
What about another rescue sentai theme ?
the next sentai i'd like to be Greek Mythology theme.
Red = Hercules, Zord Pegasus
Blue = Poseidon God of The 7 Seas, Zord Dolphin (His sacred animal)
Black = Ares God of War, Zord Snake (His Sacred animal)
Yellow= Artemis Goddess of Youth, Zord Bear (her sacred animal)
Pink = Aphrodite Goddess of Love, Zord Dove (Her sacred animal)
Gold = Apollo God of Light, Zord Raven (His sacred animal)
Zeus like mentor
and Hades and Medusa are the main villians
