Discord knows Fluttershy loves animals, so decides to take her and the Cutie Mark Crusaders on a trip through time so they can see some of the amazing animals of Equestria’s past! Unfortunately, some of them aren’t so friendly. And Discord CAN remember how to get back home… right?

Stylization can help, like Agnes's Art's stylized feel makes it likeable. But I just feel this one is off. I almost feel its as bad as the artist of FF 1.

The fact that Demonio has made me realize the style looks like g3 isn't helping >.<

Well, you get a free pass, this time...

Besides Twi is not a Mary Sue... She is just way more "powerful" than her friends as Magic is how you meassure power levels in fights in FiM, which make her overshadow her friends on adventure episodes which nowadays are always centered as her being the sword of Celestia and the shield of Equestria, more or less.

Huh. Not sure if this is a good idea or not. You run into the same problem as Transformers the movie if so: You can have giant events occur that would leave the fanbase completely out of the loop if they don't see it.

But happy to hear about it being in the show's timeline. Fuck though, gotta admit, I would feel pretty awkward going to actually see this in theaters if it's true :(

Or it could be a standalone movie that's never really acknowledged in the show, like Equestria Girls. Or pretty much most movies based on a show (mainly anime).

well yes, but then they run into different problems. Namely, they feel like they have throwaway villains and filler plots.
Its kind of like how naruto abridged puts it-- for 30 minutes they're treated like the most deadly threat the characters have ever seen, and then will never be referenced again.

I feel that movies work best when they're a seperate continuity from the series, kind of like how the Teenage mutant ninja turtle movies were instead of trying to tie into the series.

He's actually talking about income inequality. Class differences only come into play because he has no real idea how an economy works.

So far, we have 4 Stallions for 4 of the Mane 6: http://www.deviantart.com/art/The-Boyfriend-Club-435220293

We have Flash Sentry for Twilight, Cheese Sandwich for Pinkie, Soarin' for Rainbow Dash, and Trenderhoof for either Rarity or AJ.

But I have been thinking for a while now that the show needs a Stallion for Fluttershy; but now what do you think he'd be like?

I can imagine Fluttershy's "Special SomePony" being of the hippie/counterculture/earthy type (so I guess he'd naturally be an Earth Pony), and I can imagine his Cutie Mark being a 'White Dove carrying an Olive Branch': http://sweetclipart.com/multisite/sweetclipart/files/imagecache/middle/peace_dove.png

I feel like I'm one of the few who geek the hell out about anything pony related. It's been a while (since the end of Season 4) that I've actually been excited about anything really. Although I love Ponies in Pony form, I still enjoyed this movie. I'm also a sucker for music, since it is a huge part of my life. I'd prefer that all the negativity stay out of this thread, but hell, I can't control you guys. If you have something you liked about the movie please feel free to share it.

Bleh, sad I didn't respond to this thread earlier.

Gotta say, I love this movie.
Sunset shimmer managed to make herself

LIKEABLE, which is a pretty big accomplishment considering how much I hated her in the last movie.

The dazzles were a funny group of antagonists, who still felt like legitimate threats. While not really Discord, chrysalis or Discord level of tyranny, they still felt pretty evil and had a decent plan. I do wish Aria had done more starscream esque dialogue though, as her saying, "no, follow MY lead" to sonata before the cafeteria was pretty funny (mainly because it pissed off adagio so much).

I just want to like the five key episodes for what they did, and not bother with the S4 finale and the way it discarded the Mane Five's efforts to earn their keys, in-exchange for Twilight's over-empowerment. Unfortunately, too many bronies have mixed feelings about the five key episodes, disliked the Rainbow Power and Rainbow Castle, but constantly praised the Twilight/Tirek fight scene for making MLP dark and edgy, like all of those Dark Age comics from the 90's, even though the Mane Five were victimized and disposed of along the way.

This is most especially true with Tommy Oliver, aka Brony Curious. He liked Rarity Takes Manehattan and Pinkie Pride, but ruthlessly criticized Breezies, Rainbow Falls, and Leap of Faith. He also praised the fight scene in that finale, but disliked the way the Rainbow Power was presented, namely as the same thing as the Elements of Harmony, but more spruced up.

In other words, I'm in the minority of opinions when it comes to the S4-long story-arc, and I need help dealing with this.

No, just that giant laser battle DBZ fight scenes don't really belong in MLP, but whatever.
I guess they always did have some sort of lasers in defeating big villains, but it felt like it actually took itself too seriously or something this time.
Like I said though, not a huge deal, just kinda stupid. I hope it doesn't become a trend, but it probably will.
But hey it's also a cartoon show for kids, I personally can't fault it for being a bit stupid sometimes.
Maybe it's actually the FANS who take it too seriously...

It's not the cameo itself, it's the idea behind it.

It's an OC that represents misogyny and hate. Being placed into a childrens' comic about friendship. Yeah, that's not good.

Perhaps the cameo would have been meaningless before, but not anymore. Now the fandom knows what that character represents and Mr. Anderson's views regardless of whether we were involved in that drama beforehand. A cameo is no longer meaningless once you understand it. Perhaps it would have remained in obscurity if no one had ever addressed it, but that's not what happened. The fact is, people are now aware of it and it has changed the way they see it.

I'm reminded of an article I read a while back about a black woman that won an award for a fantasy novel she had written. It was quite an honor for her to win such an award and she was proud to receive it. The thing is, the award was in the shape of the bust of H. P. Lovecraft, who the woman later discovered held some very racist views. This completely changed the way she felt whenever she looked at it. The same is true here; the very knowledge of what that character represents has probably made plenty of people uncomfortable.

If anyone knows timetravel themes and tropes, you know of the most important one. That the smallest differences can make the broadest changes. I thought of that when I saw the attached image and wondered; What small change would have lead to Twilight AND Sunset going to Ponyville together?

I personally would pin the best point for the change to occur when Sunset was reading in the park. In the background, we can see filly Twilight, Cadance and Shining Armor playing. What if a gust of wind had blown that ball towards Sunset, leading Twilight to notice the books and inquire about it?

Sure, Sunset would of course not bother with the filly. Until an Alicorn walks up and introduces them. Then trust Twilight to show as much interest in books as Sunset. That would connect them but won't change her.

I believe the critical point however will either occur when Sunset has the chance into the 'Dark Magic' wing or after she is sent away. Knowing Twilight might be enough to have her re-think her move and take a different path. One that will have her stay in Equestria.

So how would each episode change, either in big or small ways, with Sunset around?

>no character
Well, if she were to return to Equestria, that could be fixed
Twilight could go all-out princess and disappear from the main cast, the earthpony/pegasus/unicorn balance would be restored (I hear people complained about that) and new friendship lessons could be learned because Sunset doesn't know friendship or something and then she becomes the next alicorn princess

I, personally, wouldn't mind too much if the show went in this direction
>> No. 36781677
No, that have almost no fix.
it doesnt matter if she is in equestria or in Monster High.

A character, is the guy which is put in different scenarios to do stuff, and react to stuff which happen.

no matter what they do, she was bad as a villain, she was blander as a good guy. there is no more point to go with that half ass character sunset shimmer.

you say remove twilight and put sunset instead?
THAT is what they should have done on EG. Go full "ok, sunset shimmer is our new main character, and she have to learn how to be good"

but in EG2, they pretty much jumped all that, and she is the nicest girl in the world, with the best intention ever, but she is just sad because everybody hate her guts and want her dead...
>> No. 36781827
If I may, I'd like to copy over my own idea for a "From Twilight to Sunset" scenario from elsewhere.

"A what-if story, where the branch-off from the original timeline(hereby called the Alpha Line) is where Celestia lets Sunset see what the crystal mirror was trying to show her, and it turns out to be a vision of what Sunset experiences near the end of the first Equestria Girls movie. The vision, showing what she'll become if she continues down her dark path, unnerves her and she refuses to have anything to do with the mirror. This prevents her from becoming disowned by Celestia and traveling to the human world, and stays on as her personal student. Eventually Celestia teaches Sunset about certain events of her own past, such as what happened with Luna(albeit with a bit of a fictional twist to hide the truth of Nightmare Moon's identity,) which helps open Sunset's eyes a bit in regards to her self-centered solitude, however she still goes on with her high-horse arrogance, albeit not so much cruel to others as before. Meanwhile, Twilight enters the school as a prodigy per Alpha Line, and Celestia decides to take her under her wing in order to give Sunset a possible friend. Eventually the two foster a sort of friendly rivalry, but mostly keeping to themselves. Thanks to this though, Twilight opens up a bit to other unicorns at the school, while Sunset stays with her magical studies since she's still quite self-absorbed. One day, she remembers the story Celestia told her about Luna and Nightmare Moon, and checks a book about prophecies(the same book Twilight read in Alpha Line.) And of course, upon trying to contact Celestia, she's told to stop studying magic so much and to go out and make more friends. Cue Episode 1: Friendship is Magic, as Sunset is sent to Ponyville instead of Twilight, who remains in Canterlot doing... magical things."

It's official: Now that "Hub Network" has changed into "Discovery Family", MLP:FiM is about to outlive (and perhaps outgrow) its own incubator.

Sure, MLP:FiM will continue to air on "Discovery Family"; but I have a feeling that Discovery Communications wants to slowly (and I do mean slowly) phase out everything "Hasbro" overtime.

But this is a great opportunity for MLP:FiM to touch the lives of much more people than it could on "Hub Network". An article on EQD talked about the possibility of Hasbro syndicating (and likely continuing) the series on another network, such as "Disney Channel".

I find "Disney Channel" to be a pretty good idea for a new home to MLP:FiM (far better than the 'Adult Swim for children' called "Cartoon Network"); but I'm also thinking it could possibly do well on a broadcast network such as CBS (in the morning), or even PBS. The first season is already E/I accredited, and I do believe the rest of the seasons can also apply and get the E/I accreditation as well (I don't see any content in the subsequent seasons that could prevent it); so, broadcast networks can air MLP:FiM as part of their daily required E/I programming. Also, by airing on a broadcast network, people who don't have access to networks such as Nick, CN or "Disney Channel" will get to experience MLP:FiM.

And that's not all: I also feel that the show could do very well for at least 2 more seasons (for a total of 7 seasons; around the same about of seasons shows such as "The Smurfs" and "Muppet Babies" have); and I also can imagine MLP:FiM getting a star (maybe even a special star) on the 'Hollywood Walk Of Fame' (I'm certain many of you will agree that it deserves a star).

I feel like the hub was cool because I like when they make good shows like MLP or LPS.
