Very likely

>>36826947
Possibly. Given the movie doing a poor showing, and things winding down, S8 could be.

At the same time, toy sales are what's important, so if things stay strong or steady, S9 is still very likely.


Given that Haber is back, I kind of think it might be better if the show went out of its misery rather than being left in his hands though.

The only way I can think of that it would be handled in video would be to have individual 1-2 minute clips based on which choice you make.

There’s a cartoon somewhere on some fucking website that the internet apparently has never heard of, where you can actually select from 3 options at multiple points during the episode, and it all leads to the same ending. God forbid I remember what it’s called or google has heard of it. I’m going to pull my god damned hair out over here.

No it’s not Chuck’s Choice, I distinctly remember choosing from options.

>>36827291
sounds about right, they'll have a 3 minute intro, then you pick one of a few choices and it resolves in a 3 minute short.

Seems viable. I mean, based on hascon the decision is merely "twilight is trapped, which of the six saves her? Rainbow dash, sunset or twilight saving herself?"

ok, I take back everything I said, it is Chuck's Choice, but the problem is I was watching from an unoficial channel, so the choices weren't included. For some reason the pet adventure I listed below doesn't work anymore. This is what I saw earlier this year.

It's neither a hit nor a bomb. The worldwide gross to date is about $43 million. If it closes at $50 million, if it cost $25 million (as some estimates have it), and if the producers net 55% of the gross, that leaves Hasbro & Co. essentially breaking even. The profit will come with sales of DVDs and toys.

Worth a sequel? Time will tell.

Sadly. this really makes me sad, as I liked the movie, and would wholeheartedly have enjoyed more of these.

On the other hand, if they were to make a Direct to DVD movie, they might make it more lore focused for fans of the show; they had to make this one very lore light and newbie friendly to try and pull in the normies who've never seen FIM before.

>>36827390
its sub 50 million right now. It'll probably exceed 50 million, but that's pretty low. Ninjago, a flop, sold 115 million, the Emoji movie, universally reviled, sold 200 million, ect.

50 million is a damned DISGRACE in today's movie market. the only thing that is going to save the movie is if its budget is incredibly low, as most movies have 50+ million budgets, so a 25 million is pretty small.

>>36827409
My original forecast was 20 million if I remember correctly. So I would see 50 as fantastic actually.

You must remember that the movie has no proper way to position itself on the market to be a big hit. All the other movies have something in common - adults can watch them as guilty pleasure (even without kids); because movies like Shrek made that possible. MLP can't. MLP is a brand for primarily little girls; the movie cannot cater to adults without pushing its target ausdience aside and thus it can never ever even come close to going 100+ million.

Plus, if you have a major animation studio like Pixar or Dreamworks behind you, people (and especially adults) know, it's something they can watch too.

Those are also animated movies that will run at prime time hours at all cinemas. Another thing MLP cannot (or only remotely) do. It has to cater with afternoon showings so the kids can watch it. Kids that are not old enough to stay up so long that they can see the movie at 8 p.m.

That's why I don't see 50 millions as a disgrace. MLP is and cannot compete with Despicable Me or even that Ninjago movie. It's competitors are Bob the Builder's big adventure of that frickin' Thomas the Tank Engine movie.

>MLP is a brand for primarily little girls; the movie cannot cater to adults without pushing its target ausdience aside and thus it can never ever even come close to going 100+ million.



I'm going to call crap on that; You can produce quality entertainment for little girls JUST as easily as you can produce quality entertainment for boys that's also entertaining for adults.
Remember Frozen? aimed primarily at little girls, still great for adults. Hell, all disney princess movies, like mulan and the like are other shining examples.


MLP doesn't have to "cater" to little girls in any specific ways, little girls are just like little boys at this age, the ONLY difference to make it a "girls" thing is to have girl protagonists and treat them in an empowered way.


The only thing that hurt this movie was the Stigma of the MLP brand, and Advertising could have overcome that-- sadly, I still don't know what lion's gate was doing with their advertising budget, because I saw virtually zero push for this movie.
Its only reason for not doing so well is the MLP brand dragging it down, which they should have focused on trying to subvert and fight back against in advertising-- that's what advertising is FOR, spinning things properly.
I mean, look at trolls. Girls franchise, spun completely perfectly in advertising to appeal to BOTH boys and girls, did very well.

that being said, the big reason I say not to be happy about 50 million is because the budget is probably going to be 25-30 million from the leaked info I saw.
So, regardless of sandbags and handicaps, financially it NEEDS to get over 50 million to be a success, with 60-80 million being where I would have rather seen it at.

Frozen had the mighty Disney studios behind it. Everyone watches their crap, no matter what it is.

>MLP doesn't have to "cater" to little girls in any specific way


Yes it does, because it's expected to do that. It cannot go out of its way and cater to a larger audience. It cannot be overly dark or raunchy, it must stick to what the parents expect.

I knew you'd bring up Trolls, but that franchise was dead. They were able to start over WITH the movie. A fresh slate. Plus most importantly, it again had Dreamworks behind it. Adults hear Dreamworks and know: that movie can and will also cater to their enjoyment.

Adults hear MLP and know it's gonna be boring shite for 5 year olds. It is the very stigma you mention.

Only if a major animation studio would pick up the MLP franchise and make from the get go clear that this is not a PG 0 movie (or whatever the US equivalent for "free for all to watch") - it could hope for a large audience.

G rating, for general audiences. Though that rating is hardly ever used anymore. Last movie I even remember getting that rating was the Peanuts movie.

If A Dog and Pony Show had aired in season 7, it’d probably be considered the best episode of the season and best overall since Saddle Row Review. Here’s to hoping season 8 brings back some charm and wit to the show. Also horsey noises.

Kind of underwhelming really, and this AJ/RD one is just a redux of the Shitty Dance off one.

I guess you refer to the villain reformation? Well, I too would like some of them to stick around but if a show like MLP cannot give the hope that no one is beyond redemption than none can.

Also, I agree with her that no one is bad (from the beginning), just broken. But IRL many - if not most - are just beyond fixing.

Well, looks like there ARE going to be some actual legitimate "episode" tier episodes in the equestria girls web series, based on the book that just came out. Not a bad plot, and a good addition to Sunset's arc. A little non-plussed on the other 6 being cameos in it for all intents and purposes, and but sunset and trixie have a great relationship with each other, and its a good plot, so I think it'll translate very well to an episode or 2. (It doesn't feel like there's enough substance for a movie or 3 episode deal, 2 episodes tops for it IMO).

Wallflower is a good foil to sunset and has a legitimately decent feeling motivation, compared to Juniper turning into a giant retard and stomping around in the last specials, and I think the plot flowed well.

What I'm really hoping for is that the Sorceress that Clover the clever chased into the human world turns up as the Arc villain for the series, seeing as how it didn't mention what happened to her, just that he got the memory stone back from her. the human world is once again seeming more and more like pony australia



My one issue is that I hope this isn't an indication of things to come where the other 5/6 are just cameos like they were in the book, and that some future adventure episodes focus on them too like how the plot was completely Sunset focused this time, and that the other 6 aren't just relegated to 2 minute shorts that were shit out with zero effort.

Bringing back Chrysalis strikes me as a great idea, but I'll bet a heap of bits that this synopsis list is bogus. (a) Putting up the EPA ("EEA") as Twilight's enemy -- not a friendship lesson at this juncture in U.S. political history. (b) "Grannies Gone Wild"? Sounds like a softcore porn movie. (c) Putdown on Celestia as a bad actor. (d) Pubescent Spike getting dragon acne? Dragon families drive out adolescents? Not likely. And so on and on. In these and most of the other supposed synopses, the implied level of hostility and childhood anxiety is too high, and/or the themes are too adult, for Hasbro to have passed them for their intended demographic.

I say it's a hoax, written by the sort of sadistic right-wing troll that infests cyberspace. The "EEA" bit is a giveaway.

But I have to admit that some of these are interesting ideas...

Hoax?
Dude, there was ACTUAL FULL episodes with this leak. This was literally the episodes listed in there.
I sat down last night and watched celestia starring in a school play (Celestia is adorable, but its kind of sad how she's gone from being a regal and wise individual when faust was here to a goofball like this) and I'm literally watching the Chrysalis episode right NOW.

This shit is as legitimate as it gets.
I'd shoot you the Youtube links but the Mods deleted everything I posted and I figure I'll get banned if I link to the youtube episodes again given that.


I mean, do you really think that someone stole episodes and assets and then sat down and wrote out a shit ton of real looking fake Documents just to troll people?

the fact that they had episodes to go along with this stuff pretty much proves its real.


>>36827747
And Sombra is back in S9, and Grogar is too.

Spike gets an episode where he goes through some sort of Metamorphasis, molts, gets wings, and then beats the shit out of a roc that kidnaps rarity and Zecora though.
So he gets at least one "spike is a hero" episode.

Yeah, basically. Chrysalis kind of comes off as alot more crazy now than before.

Also, I meant to say though, as to the Russia thing, its DEFINITELY not russia; the stuff posted by the person who leaked the things seemed to imply it was just some pissed off Brony intern at Hasbro, so basically an employee who stole a lot of shit.




Edit:And just finished watching the chrysalis episode.
Damn, she IS pathetic without her hive; like, completely and utterly impotent.

And the scene where the clones get melted wasn't quite as horrific as I expected from the images I'd seen. They kind of just get tired and then get zapped.

Though the tree kind of was a little harsh there, they WERE living creatures with thoughts and feelings, it normally doesn't kill people

From what I can tell, there was some leaked .swf file that somehow had the login/password for DHX's FTP server, and that's how all of this stuff is getting leaked. The FTP server is offline now, though.

But yeah, shitload of emails, future details about the franchise, concept artwork, and some full S8 episodes (albeit with just the voice acting, no music, and very few sound effects), are among the leaked stuff.

Too late. Once it's out on the internet, people will have downloaded it and re-upped to places Hasbro can't touch (Mega, Dropbox, torrents, etc)

If it makes you feel any better, the leaked episodes aren't complete. They just have the voice acting; no sound effects or background music.

So, with the movie being the "definitive end" to fim, do you think they'll do anything special to wrap up the mane six as a group in that plot?

unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36827813


So, watched all 6 of the episodes.
Really liked the mean six; actually a really good episode, and alot better than I have been expecting. lots of good inter mane six jokes, the cluelessness of the clones was enjoyable, and I loved the ending where they got melted. A little bit of darkness is nice.
Chrysalis seemed horrifically incompetent in this episode (fucking twilight clone was BTFO her at the end without any artifacts), and I fully expect this will end up with her releasing another more evil villain in S9 who will usurp and curb stomp her in this line of her being betrayed by her "minions".
On that note, Glimmer was freaking pointless in this episode; she really just seemed "there", apart from chrysalis constantly reminding the audience that "Though this plot SEEMS like its about the mane six, its actually about GLIMMER!".
9/10
I really liked the surf and turf episode as well; Really adorable scootaloo and sweetie belle. Decent plot too. Annoying as fuck Hippogryphs, but, eh, what can you do?
Also 9/10.
Celestia's play episode was good, though I honestly feel bad about celestia being reduced from her regalness to.. this. Good use of applejack too.
8/10
The molt down was a great episode for spike, and had a good plot. Much better puberty plot than secret of my excess too, and tabitha CONTINUES to be an incredible VA (her yelling while deaf was great).
8.5/10.
The non-compete clause... eh, where it starts to get crappy. The students are almost all shitlings; like seriously, I want to kick the balls in of the griffin and dragon kid, they're little shits. Yona is adorable though (her whistling while in the water was adorable) and her Heavy-ish mannerisms are endearing while HAPPILY lacking the angry retard aspects of the previous yaks we met.
AJ and RD were also kind of poor in this episode, though I liked the first 10 minutes of it with them.
6/10
The heart's and hooves day, apart from a couple good jokes like skelenore, was shit.
2/10.
Sunburst and starlight's parents episode was actually alot more enjoyable than I expected, and I say that despite hating starlight with a passion. Great Sunburst execution, his mother was INCREDIBLE, and the villagers were very enjoyable. (really good touch at the start to show how sunburst just throws his mother's letters in the corner to set up the problem early on). Starlight's dad... less so. His personality just wasn't as enjoyable as Sunburst's mothers's overbearing one. Though I did laugh at starlight's goth room.
6.5/10

Not bad for this season's start, I really look forward to what's to come. Though I am REALLY cringing at the thought of Tirek being redeemed, which one of the leaked images (Of a stained glass window of him holding Cozy glow over his head, "airplane" style) implies.

https://geekreply.com/geek-culture/2017/12/19/little-pony-seasons-89-information-leaked

I was sad to hear it claimed that the G5 ponies are gong to be CGI. I was almost as sad to see the purported new character designs, in which Fluttershy becomes a unicorn, and AJ -- honest, hardworking, plain-spoken salt-of-the-earth Applejack -- becomes a sort of Applejewel, a coiffure-obsessed pretty-pretty clothes horse (pic). Are these awful revelations for real? Say it ain't so!

To be honest, I actually kind of like that-- Fluttershy never really focused much on her pegasi nature, and was more about animals and nature; Her being more druidic and magical would be a nice fit IMO, though I kind of wonder why she wasn't made an EARTH PONY instead.

Oh Jeezus. The MLP equivalent of Loonatics (pic).

Back in 2012, when everything was still bright and magical and the possibilities for FiM seemed endless, I wrote the following entry (No. 36166079) on a Ponychan thread concerning the difference between Loonatics and the G4 re-imagining of MLP:

"The original WB cartoons were made by animators and directors who were trying to make stuff that they enjoyed themselves. Loonatics is the product of a marketing decision -- to try to appeal to a particular demographic. The underlying cynicism accounts for most of its toxic flavor. In the MLP franchise, the situation is reversed. G1 was the product of artists trying to accede to the demands of the marketing department; G4 is the product of artists trying to make the kind of MLP cartoons that they want to watch themselves. Art contrived to appeal to a market -- art made by artists trying to sell stuff to an audience they despise -- always has a slimy feeling to it. You get that slimy feeling in a lot of Disney, and in Loonatics, and in earlier MLP generations. But the G4 work is made by artists who love the characters and the situations; and that love gets communicated, and echoes back and forth between the two groups of adults."

I have a bad feeling that the toxic cynicism and the slimy feeling may come roaring back in G5.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36827850

>>36827849
Spoiling for obvious reasons.

The reports involving the use of CGI for producing anything involving MLP will be for the transitional movie alone. There was a specific statement that the series will be made with whatever replaces Flash at the studio they will use.

The bad news is that the identification of the woman who was handed the job of writing the new show bible worked for Disney. Plenty of diggers on /mlp/ have built her biography as a person not directly involved in show running. I have almost zero faith given what has been written about her as well as things dug out of the leaks. Unless the leaks shook the shit out the rest of the studio, this is going to be strictly a cash grab rather than anything similar to G4.

I'm fairly sure the "twilight is an earth pony" decision was to balance out the races so there's 2 of each; I think the race shake up was from them trying to make Fluttershy a unicorn (her being a unicorn is the only one of the move that seems interesting IMO), which required a shake up of the others to rebalance.

I figure there's a bit of rebalancing being done, but it's just why not Rarity? Of the two unicorns, Twilight is the one who uses her horn the most due to her focus on magic.

Though it's kind of funny in a way. First she gains wings which caused controversy, then she winds up losing wings and horn.

Why? one of the things they put as a bulletpoint for a G5 movie is that it'll be ALOT easier to advertise and sell if there's no series already attached to it, since there'd be no pre-existing lore to worry about locking newbies out with.

>>36827888
True, but I have a hard time imagining Rarity's skill with fashion working without telekinesis; it just looks so much more elegant when she's creating with magic as opposed to by hoof.


I think they figured that they could focus on Twilight's leader status as opposed to her magic focus without issues, since EQG twilight has zero Magic focus in her character and was accepted by the fanbase.

If it obviously looks to be another ad for a cheap toy cartoon most will never watch, they learned nothing. I would say wait a few years to make a standalone MLP movie that looks like a real movie...but no one seems to be rushing to make that Hollywood CGI reboot of Care Bears.

G is usually a deathknell, most movies try to AVOID a G rating because of how much it turns off audiences.

Due to how much the rating system has been skewed, G to most people means "Aimed at 3 year old babies"

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36827896

>>36827894
You kind of missed my point, I was saying MLP seemed more likely to aim hard for that audience than Cars, since Finding Dory still got a PG despite being the same content-wise. MLP is TV-Y, the toys are for ages 3 and up, and the whole thing has an air of safe cutesyness. A PG was never going expand the audience, rather it risks scaring off the pre-existing one. You should know, you said as much last year. There's no real "stigma" against G, rather some execs compared the box office to recent G and PG movies, saw which tended to make more money, and came to a lazy size-fits-all reason. Saying overtly your movie has one thing that could make a one-year-old cry does not automatically make it more inclusive.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36827913

>>36827896

See, that would be true, if the rating system wasn't fucked up. G, even PG just add on arbitrary restrictions that really aren't any good for one year olds, and only exist to please 67 year olds who think they know what's best for our children, or at least what's most effective at making them consumers.

There's a stigma against G-rated movies, for good reason. They're too whitewashed and bland to be healthy for child development, and too restrictive to be all that entertaining. Achieving that rating is equivalent to admitting that your ballet routine is done wearing heavy leg shackles, and no, you're not good enough to dance in those.

I mean, no "substance use?" Not even abuse. "use." Save someone's life with whiskey as a disinfectant, get shielded from the eyes of the childrens. No nudity? What the heck do we think we're teaching kids, that horses don't have gonads? That salt will make you drunk? That the Native American genocide was conducted with apple pies?

We're teaching kids that commercial cell phones are wonderful magical devices that bring friends together, and only the objection is if some kid sees a boob? Heck, the one-year-olds see boobs every day!

So yeah, G-rating/Y-rating sucks, and people actually do avoid it. Some creators can still do cool stuff with it, but... it's definitely a justifiable stigma.

Not really, 30% of the audience is young males. Young boys like action and whatnot, a G rated pony movie runs the risk of scaring off that part of the audience.

I think the big reason the movie failed was a lack of advertising, like there should have been previews shown in front of a lot more movies, and way earlier.

>>36827915
tangled has more violence and the threat of death in it.

Some mickey mouse stuff should be PG in the current system (Like the old three musketeers one or the like), while things like mickey mouse clubhouse... fuck man, that's textbook G right there. (And good god is it BORING, had to sit through that alot while babysitting my nieces and nephews)

This very accurately describes how I feel about all the Equestria Girls bullshit.

FIM feels like something made by artists who wanted to make something good and creative.

EQG feels like something made to fulfill a corporate demand to pander to a specific demographic. (ripping off Monster High, since it's apparently wildly popular)

Eeyup. And it looks like G5 will be ripping off G4 (since it is, or was, wildly popular).

I have never understood why anyone, of any age, likes EQG. I think I have at least a vague idea of why Monster High is popular. It's a debased variant of the old metaphor of the teenager as misunderstood monstrosity: Spiderman and all the similar Marvel heroes, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, Frankenstein's monster, and so on. The pubescent child finds his or her body being converted into something alien with weird lumps, tufts, and urges, and his or her parents becoming tyrants and stupid, evil cops that Just Don't Understand. It's natural to convert this alienation into a wishful dream of monstrous form and/or super powers. The alienated Romantic poet offered a similar sort of wishful self-image for 19th-century adolescents, leading to the first appearance of the Superman in Nietzsche's writings. Monster High is Nietzsche written in crayon by a twelve-year-old. But EQG has no such bitterness in its heart, and none of the tart sweetness of early FiM either. It's just Play-Doh -- candy-colored library paste with a funny smell.

I don't think "Rip off" is a good way to put it since its explicitly meant to be a REBOOT of G4; Its intended to be the same basic characters and concepts, just with a different world.

Its like saying that War for cybertron is a rip off of G1 transformers or the like. Hasbro intends for FIM to be the bedrock upon which all future MLPs Spring.

Though, on the note of EQG, you're kind of right there, as hasbro even admits amongst themselves that its antithetical to Faust's original vision for the show.

Her reaction to EQG really pissed me off because she basically posted a picture of the dolls and captioned it with “...”.

Really? The person who made My Little fucking Pony interesting to anyone above the age of 5 is going to judge something she hasn’t seen, based on the models? What would her reaction be if someone had done that to the mane 6? Like get the fuck outta here with that hypocritical shit.

At the same time, I can sympathize given what EQG 1 turned out to be. That one was a pretty soulless cashgrab, with no attempt to really expand the world or make the human 5 unique beyond just "HEY, HUMAN WORLD!"

Like, i'm actually all for giving the EQG universe a chance now as I like a few things they've done, but I can see where faust is coming from.

Which seems shortsighted; many people don't still think of MLP and FiM interchangeably. Part of FiM's appeal was it being a reinvention of MLP proper, so why not retain that? There is still nostalgia for all the incarnations, especially among older relatives. It's been proven from time to time that G4 isn't as successful and iconic as bronies and Hasbro seems to think. If you say G4 is popular with today's girls, remember that G5 is meant for the next generation. Besides, they're keeping the lineup yet making changes for the sake of it, so what's the point?

Reboot? Maybe. Would you call "Loonatics" a reboot of the Jones-Freleng-Clampett Looney Tunes? I'd call it a ripoff, even if the same corporation owns the original copyrights.

Maybe "desecration" would be a better word than "ripoff." But as long as it recycles someone else's inspiration, I'll bet dollars to dimes that it won't drive a new generation of fans to produce devotional art (pic).

I think that loonatics was different enough to call it a "new gen" kind of thing rather than a reboot though, much digimon adventure and tamers, ect.. It wasn't bugs bunny after all, it was "ace" bunny, and "danger duck".

Like, I think they're shooting more for what the last looney toons (where all the characters were the same name and all that) was to original looney toons.

why wouldn't it? FIM Is a toy selling juggernaut, and its got a pretty decent boys audience too.

Honestly, I think a big issue is that its advertising was shit, plus the las vegas shooting happening a week before took alot of steam out of their sales.


With proper advertising and releasing at a different time, I think 100 million would have been easily achievable.

She reacted that way likely because she already knew what EQG was going to be: a cliche and generic "high school" cartoon, AKA the same shit as every other girl cartoon, with the same tired old tropes and bad writing and everything else that comes along with no-effort girl cartoons.

Faust wanted to get away from that crap, make something new and different. She didn't want to make another "girl cartoon" that's all about school and fashion and lusting over boys. So of course, when her creation gets twisted and perverted into the very thing she was trying to NOT do, why wouldn't she be pissed?

The synopsis for rainbow dash's book is just... Like, the fuck, who thought this shit up?
I really hope this doesn't get an animated adaption, because this sounds TERRIBLE. Twilight's at least has some magical villain potential, this one is just retarded sounding.

And I say this as someone who normally ALWAYS welcomes more dash stories.


My Little Pony: Equestria Girls: Canterlot High Stories: Rainbow Dash Brings The Blitz

Release Date: April 3rd, 2018

Summary: When Rainbow Dash's favorite new sport, Blitzball, finally starts a league at Canterlot High, she can't wait to try out! Even though she's the best player on the field, the new head coach, Blitzball champion Comet Chaser, has a rule: no girls allowed! But Rainbow Dash isn't about to let that get in her way. She and all her friends challenge the boys to Blitzball game-and if her team wins, Rainbow Dash and any other girl who plays well can join the league. Will Rainbow Dash blitz her way to victory?

>>36828191
eh, going to disagree about the "getting constantly better" bit-- RR was good, it got worse with FG, got better with LOE, and then took another turn into the toilet until this special.

Its not a constant upward growth rate, its a rollercoaster ride, and it still hasn't surpassed RR. They really need to bring the dazzlings back as villains for this series IMO.

Also, more specials like this that play out with a more magical girl feel, compared to Dance magic and Movie magic (though its not like mirror magic was any good, though I blame that on it being based around glimmer).


I agree with you that the anon's way out of line about EQG being pure crap, but its not a sure thing for quality.

Well true, RR is a pick but come on. It's really hard to top it off and I think they keep other EqG quality rather near the RR then the first movie. Also I enjoy most of the shorts.

Rumorish leakage on EQD today:

Holiday Special:

•44 Minutes long (Confirmed during the leaks a few months ago)
•Written by MKToon (Teased constantly by him on twitter)
•Airing in the 4th quarter of the year
•Takes place after season 8
•Features your usual music!

Season 9:

•26 episodes total
•Grogar arrives from Tartarus to cause trouble
•A special 200th episode is planned

Grogar will be another case of the Pluto/Goofy effect. Some dogs (Pluto), cats (Opalescence) and sheep are four-footed chattels; others (Goofy, Capper, Grogar) are bipedal, citizens, and players.

Actually kind of the opposite.
I rather enjoyed the rockhoof episode (Since I found him connecting with yona pretty good, and really enjoyed him at the start), but really disliked the what lies beneath episode.

it felt just kind of forced (What's that gallus, shit talking a tree in the courtyard? INTO THE PUNISHMENT BOX! Because a slowly closing deathtrap teaches friendship!), and while I found a couple of the lessons okay (Yona and occellus's), I just found it pretty meh.


Not to say the rockhoof one was a 10/10 (It dragged in the middle as they failed to keep the joke fresh, so it sagged after the start till the end, so its about a 7/10), but I felt what lies beneath was a real dissapointment.

Plus, I'm finding all the hamfisted racism shit this season (cozy glows "your handicap!" speech being really bad) to feel excessive and annoying.

The slow music is overly corny, and I kinda hoped they’d stay away from the obvious end game of Celly and Luna retiring.

At least hand it off to Cadence and Twilight, not the mane 6. That at least would have been more logical and given a solid basis for making them Princesses.

At least they're doing some ongoing stuff with the Villain teamup, though I have a feeling this might undercut Grogar as a threat if he's constantly getting his plans fucked up due to incompetent minions (while having to RELY on said incompetent minions).

I like at least a few of the student six. Like Smolder. I thought her and Spike's interactions were the more interesting parts of Father Knows Beast and would've honestly preferred an episode on those two instead of Spike and Sludge, so Sweet and Smoky sounds good to me. Inclusion of Fluttershy makes sense too, since it could give some finality to her dragon phobia (plus she likes baby dragons).

Unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830067

>>36830042
Ironically, I'm actually more interested in the Yona/sandbar one, since Yona's about the only one of the six I enjoy.

I kind of get the feeling the Dragon one will end up having the same plot as the book they released a few years ago with fluttershy, where they end up having to hug the dragon eggs to get them to hatch. And that book was... kind of meh.

So now we've got a better idea on how this might work after seeing the premiere. I actually wonder if this might be something similar to The Beach from Avatar The Last Airbender as a villain episode where they bond and learn about each other. Maybe even get some flashbacks and deeper look into why Chrysalis, Tirek, and Cozy are the way they are (like actually getting to see Scorpan in a Tirek flashback).

Why not? He seems pretty clear and direct on his objective, get the villains to work together so that they can take over Equesteria. The guy's powerful enough that I think the only other thing he needs was the bell that Gusty took from him, but if the bell comes into play I bet it'd be in the finale.

Probably the inciting incident will be us starting out the episode checking in on Grogar and his legion just to show how Tirek and Chrysalis can't get along (and don't act well towards Cozy despite her efforts) so annoyed at their behavior he demands that the three learn to get along for his plan to work.

It's less a question about what can be kept as a pet but more of how it can be done in a reasonable manner.

If Pinkie had an alligator it would have to be kept in a big enclosure - or the show would promote bad animal care habits.

So, it's more than reasonable showing him as merely a stuffed animal.

>Bodyswap episode (I really just want to hear the VAs do impressions of each other for an entire episode.)


>Blueblood episode

>More reformed Diamond Tiara


>Spike officially gets over Rarity


>Each member of the student six gets an episode each fully focusing on them. Gallus' has Gilda and Gabby return in speaking roles. We also get to learn who Sandbar is and learn anything about him this way.

Also, I hope that either;

A) The epilogue of the series finale is everyone celebrating at the Grand Galloping Gala (if they reprise 'At the Gala' too, I will cry)

B) The final shot is Twilight reading a book under a tree just like the cold open to season 1 episode 1, then the mane six join her.

Yeah, coming back to the beginning is a guaranteed closure-maker. Das ewige Wiederkehr. The Ring of the Nibelungen. Finnegan's Wake. The Threepenny Opera. Alice in Wonderland. The wheel of karma. The circle of life.

I love the idea of ending with a reprise of "At the Gala," which is still the best thing Ingram ever wrote for this show. Alhough for a combo of graphics and music, I'll take "Winter Wrap-Up" over it. The animators never again did anything as surprising, touching, and expressive as Twilight simply closing her eyes at the end of that number as all the ponies evaporate into darkness around her.

Yeah, that'd be great.

While Winter Wrap up is arguably better in isolation, At the Gala would work way better as a bookend to the series.

>>36830268

That is great.

I mean we've seen Twilight doing Pinkie (Hearth's Warming Tale), Rarity doing Pinkie (Gift of the Maid Pie), Fluttershy doing Rarity (Fake It Till You Make It) and Rainbow doing everyone else (Newbie Dash)

I may have forgotten some. Still, those moments were great but too brief. A whole episode of that kinda stuff will be so fun.

G1 did their own bodyswap episode and despite a less talented and diverse voice cast doing it with less developed characters, it was still a lot of fun to watch. And that was G1. Imagine how fun it would be with G4!

Cyan HideCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830276

Predictions for the rest of the first half:

Common Ground: Dash is going to learn some kind of lesson here, as is Quibble

She's All Yak: Yona and Sandbar start getting shipped by the show. Rarity almost ruins Yona's chances by tarting her up (and instructing her how to act) instead of letting her be herself. Prepare for cringe

Frenemies: Tirek saves Cozy Glow's life and gets tsundere about it. Chrysalis is tsundere 24/7

Sweet and Smoky: Smolder's brother is the red dragon from Dragonshy.

Going To Seed: Babs Seed returns. There will be a heartfelt Applejack song

The Last Crusade: Diamond Tiara gets a speaking role. Scootaloo's family are the unexpected visitors. The CMC stay together and aren't split up.

Between Dark And Dawn: Lessons from the previous episodes this season actually stick and the Mane six do a good job once they get their bearings. Celestia and Luna will be hilarious.
