These scenes from "Ponyville Confidential" made me very happy.

So did the typewriters with two keys.

The feather boa is what makes him look terrible. That's one of the biggest gripes I have, as it makes him look like he's wearing a Bomber jacket (which I think is the point of that boa).

Plus, his haircut and expression just give me a cliche Arrogant rebel teenager from rich parents vibe. (and it makes him look like the kid in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfsFV7VGBzI )

We've got a date, we've got a synopsis, and the season 5 thread is getting pretty big, so I'm making this thread a month early for all the discussion for the premiere.

This premier's title is Cutie Markless Parts 1 and 2.

>In the Season 5 premiere of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, the Mane 6: Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, Rarity and Applejack meet Starlight Glimmer when they are summoned to solve a friendship problem only to find a utopian village in which everyone has given up their Cutie Marks. At first look, the ponies in this village appear happy, but it soon becomes clear that Starlight Glimmer has a vastly different and rather sinister view on friendship and the individual talents that make Equestria's ponies so special.

This episode airs Saturday, April 4th at 11:00 AM EST/ 8:00 AM PST.

As more S5 and EQG3 info is released, thought it'd be better to separate the two threads.

Short overview of EQG3 info:

-"Friendship games", inter-school competition story
-"Science Twilight" playing a large role in the movie
-"Shadowbolts" name of the villains/villain team, and "Crystal Prep" being the school name
-Releasing in Fall 2015

Apparently just a fake. Someone on /mlp/ had been making fake screenshots, and one of the windows indicates something about Motocross and PP AKA Pinkie Pie.

obviously is fake.

the dessign, how it look.

i know is fake, but i wanted to hear the anon motivation to post it.

unless people was thinking is real, i dont see the point except plant fake material

and if /mlp/ bealive that "screen shot" is real.... they need to practice to destinguish real and fake stuff.

This is going to sound weird, but the thing I find most glaringly obvious is that Pinkie's using a bike, and She's the roller derby character in the movie, not the biker.

So, i was thinking what could be a problem with me and the show lately.

why im more exceptical than ever, even when there is no information to make me think something is going wrong, or something bad is comming.

So i have being watching others shows in the mean while. Steven Universe and Gravity falls.

and i think maybe a reason. Is that ponies give me that feeling that they are doing stuff just to fit a toy line, while this other shows make me wonder what are they going to do or going for. and i dont get that feeling of them making it for an uninspired reason.

It is unfair to compare FIM to others shows because at the end FIM is just a commercial tool and nothing else?

and how can i get the feel that FIM is really trying to go for something....while EqG doesnt help....

I still resent booyakasha replacing Cowabunga. Even if Cowabunga would be feel dated.
Hell, that was the ONE thing about the crappy 2014 movie I liked was the cowabunga line at the end, since they managed to actually make it work without sounding ridiculous.

Ah well. Mikey's the weakest of the 4 turtles this go around anyways.

According to an interview with an executive producer, it wasn't exactly changed because cowabunga was dated. There were talks about if cowabunga should be changed or not and what would it be if it even was changed, so it sounds more like they were considering whether or not to reinvent Mikey's catchphrase in the same sense all shows and such being rebooted have their elements evaluated to see what should be kept and what should be reimagined. Mikey's VA just said "booyakasha" during one recording that had some execs there, they liked it and it just caught on, and so they ended up keeping it.
>> No. 36792586
the more catch phrases your show have the better, now you hear cawabonga and booyakasha, you know this 2 are ninja turtle related.

The writers actually have said that the drafts of the scripts get looked at by people from the network too, and they'll send notes back like Hasbro does.

The designs are based on the pre-existing toy line. They constrain the animation, because of those big Popeye-the-Sailor marshmallow feet. Compare the way the G3.5 cartoon ponies move. It's like walking around with your feet stuck in wastebaskets...
>> No. 36792526
Agreed. Although, even the non-pony characters animate somewhat stiltingly. I think the animators cut a lot of corners. I've seen deliberately bad parody CGI that was accidentally better animated.

I don't know why, but them being stuck in an insecapable cave made me think of this for some reason.


Yeah, their massive Huge "feet"/hooves end up making it look like they're suffering from some sort of gigantism defect and makes the animation suffer.

They have to move their legs in a very awkward manner to get proper clearance for them.

Yeah, its basically a giant river badger; It eats the eyes and teeth too for some weird reason.

Ass hands McGee really doesn't have much in common with his mythological source though aside from the hand tail. He doesn't live in a river, drown people, or cry like a small child to lure people in.

On that note, I think his name being something that's hard to remember hurts his usefulness as a villain too.

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

It may mean that the idea did not original come from the show's creative team, but from some other part of Hasbro.

>she intended him to be [...] a dark dreaded force rather than a direct villain
See, that's kinda what I'm saying. He WAS that. The dark, dreaded force of corruption. Or rather, what corruption can do to someone with power & influence (like, say, a Princess of Magic).
If that was the specific feature of Sauron that Meghan was trying to capture, I'd say she did an alright job. Sauron himself was an Ainur spirit whom Melkor had twisted, after all. If she was trying to make a hyper-competent master-manipulator with warlike aspirations, not so much.

I figured it was the pony of shadows and that it was real. Honestly, the pony of shadows seems logical; cast off negative emotions isn't an uncommon trope, and if one were to headcanon the nightmare force being luna's subconscious dark thoughts rather than a true outside force it would make even more sense.
