Show Bible leaked NostalgiaSchmaltz!jdKt6Dif02Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36826872

The often-mentioned "show bible" that Lauren made has been released, amidst all these wacky leaks.

http://derpy.me/X7MSt

Though most of the info is already known, it's nice to see the original.

sheeeeiiiit
nice

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36826883

Very nice from a historical sense.

Though much of this has already been answered by Lauren Faust, the development process is well mapped out in detail. The fact Lauren was going to make Celestia a queen for example.

One can see where Lauren placed a lot of emphasis on some characters like Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash. However, the show runners elected to ignore some of the more negotiable details like the size of the cities and population distribution.

The layout and official release of the sketches we've seen leaked before makes this bible so much more awesome.

Fuckin' downloaded!

Wow. Fascinating. I hope someone picks up those two episode synopses that never got made.

I highly doubt Hasbro would be going after people for posting an 8-year-old document that isn't even relevant to the current show anymore.

It'd be like leaking the source code of WoW...from 2004. Nobody cares, that version of the game isn't relevant to anyone except people who are already pirating it.

Checked.

I do believe Hasbro wants the person or persons who dumped the last four episodes of the season as well as the people who let the Russians get a copy of the movie days before the release.

The script and bible dump is just icing on the cake.

Well, yeah. She worked on Powerpuff Girls with her husband, which was also popular with both boys and girls, despite being a "girl" show.

Wow the names are so much cooler. Big Apple for big Mac, Apple Seed for AB, and Queen Celestia.

What about all the people complaining there was no show bible? cuz looks like there IS one.

lauren knew because she has actual respect for her audiences and tries to make a quality product first and satisfy the corporate suits second. Look at powerpuff girls for example, great "girls" show that still got boys to watch.

>>36826872
Damnit, this makes me so sad; the fact that faust had plans for all the six and not just twilight just hits me in the hear given how after she left the other 5 seemed to have been stuck in limbo/shelved.

I would REALLY have wanted to see what that "fate has something more in store" thing for Dash would have been, given how shitty the wonderbolts have been.

Why don't you faggots come up with your own pitch bible? Are you that talentless, creatively bannkrupt and penniless to not create it yourselves or hire someone?

Lauren Faust actually stole the MLP pitch bible from me. My original vision for it was "Hypno-llamas for Kids".

I have actually been thinking about a new setting with new ponies. Hasbro doesn't seem to understand why the show is a hit and focus solely on the IP, so I've thought about a spinoff that carries the tone and atmosphere of FiM but takes place on another continent far from the mainland and never mentions any Hasbro owned places or characters.

Making the bible is no problem, but the bible alone isn't that interesting if no show gets done with it.

>show is a hit
From a particular perspective, it always got shit ratings

>>36828175
>it always got shit ratings
>The Hub Network
>Discovery Family
>premium priced cable channels
>countless streams that cannibalized viewership ratings

Think we have the problem nailed down. The show is an artistic success that was crippled by being offered as the keystone of two over priced cable services.

Not to mention completely unavailable in most of the world except on Dailymotion.
