Season 6
The season's theme is "Explore Equestria".
Episode title: Flutter Brutter. Definitely the episode where Fluttershy's brother makes an appearance. Expected to air early in the season, at least before June 7th.
A picture was shown of Pinkie, Rainbow Dash, and Maud at Manehattan. Very likely an actual screencap.
What was reported from Toy Fair 2016:
>During the Toy Fair 2016 closed door press event, a new season 6 animatic with a griffon named Gabby was revealed. It was strongly hinted that griffons could get cutie marks, and the episode revolves around that.
>And joining her, there were apparently some new dragon chracters in the slide. We heard rumors they were Hearthswarming based, but can't confirm that. One looked female.
>New Hearthswarming Episode Song Details:
>Background ponies team up with mane 6 to decorate>Derpy dropped some boxes, annoyed Rarity, plopped a Christmas star on her head, then hid in a tree branch
>All the mane 6 and CMC Sing
>Christmas dragons
Chiara Zanni, VA of Daring Do, has said that she recorded an episode back in July.
John de Lancie was involved in recording at least one episode, and that seems likely to be a two parter.

>She also didn't have any chemistry with the mane six in the premier either; She basically just nervously laughed and that was it in regards to the other 5.
>She hasn't shown any real interaction with the other 5 to this point besides just being "there".
While I can agree that she hasn't had much interaction with the others, and personally I would like to see a future episode that actually gives Starlight some more focus with another one of the mane six (and I know you don't want her to have any focus), I don't think "not having chemistry" really applies when there's not much given by the story to have some meaningful interaction between them to produce chemistry.

File: 1462387730297.gif (4.05 MB, 746x440, 434.gif)

well what does she have going for her to justify her interacting with the others? What interests or character traits would make her "work" with another of the mane six?

Like, for example, RD and fluttershy have the whole "over protective friend/submissive friend" chemistry and Shared backgrounds in being pegasi who grew up together to get them together in situations: AJ and RD can get together due to their shared love of physical activities or tomboy personalities, Rarity has a social air about her that makes her work in any situation where the other six are dealing with something involving either business or high society (Like in the gift of maud pie being set in manehattan or the upcoming Pinkie/Rarity episode dealing with a business), but what does Starlight truly have to make her fit into episodes or interaction with others?

The only real thing that starlight has as a character trait is "Twilight's pupil" and "Ex villain". Which really isn't good for inserting her organically with the other 5. Like, the other five just don't have anything to make them work well with her ex-villain aspect, and the Pupil thing only works with Twilight.

Starlight only really works with People like Twilight or secondary characters like Trixie, discord or possibly luna.

I hear the movie is already out, and Sony put no marketing on it.

Then i hear it is getting bad reviews, for not being really funny or that good, specially because alot of the movie is pretty much the cinemas in the game.

And that the story work alot better in the game than in the movie.

So it isnt make for the fans of the games because there isnt anything new in the movie if they already play the game., and sony isnt promoting it, so it ill dissapear around all the civil war and stuff.

What do you think the movie's toyline will be? unlikeable pony 36816983[View]

So, here's a question: The show and the movies are, at their core, just there to sell toys. Lets not sugar coat it, even the 2017 movie is going to be there just to be a vehicle to sell another toyline for hasbro.

So, what do you think the theme of the toyline will be? We've had 2 toylines that were just "Stamp cutie marks all over them" with rainbow power and Cutie mark magic, and explore equestria is built around experimenting with making them action figurey (Poseable and with more focus on "Holding" items and letting them use accessories in a way besides just dress up)

So, what direction do you think they'll do for the movie's toyline? (Super forms again, outfit focus, playset, ect.)

Unless one is obsessed with alicorns (Though, admittedly the MLP fanbase does seem to be), just thinking they're grown up seems like the normal thing to view it as IMO.

Either way, I seriously doubt they'll have them all as alicorns in the movie.

The whole canterlot/Crystal prep rivalry seems to have been a much bigger part of the movie in the initial pitch, and when they decided they wanted to shift the focus it was already too late to cut out everything.
Like, look at the original ending: it had a focus on the crystal prep students as a whole leaving instead of twilight specifically.

basically, the motivation aspect was part of a large shaggy dog story, about the two coming together to stop viewing the competition as a way to look down on the other.

Tanks for the Memories > Flight to the Finish > Sisterhooves Social > Magic Duel = Gauntlet of Fire >>> Griffon the Brush-Off.

Feels and great songs, and some darkness, in the top two episodes. "Magic Duel" suffers from the presence of Snips and Snails, who always detract from any episode. At the bottom of the spectrum, I detest the clumsy dialogue and junior-high ambiance in GtBO.

I notice that I'm the anti-Bollox and close to OP (Xylon).
