One reason to believe these leaks are real: This villain looks exactly like Grogar from MLP G1 from the '80s. It is McCarthy's style to reuse G1 characters. (e.g. mentioning Gusty once and villains like Tirek)

Hello anonymous DHX employee,

Are you aware that the TV is less and less of an option for toy shows and advertisements? I mean, there is a reason why Pone is the sole survivor of the death of the HUB. Can you give us a glimpse of what DHX is going to do to avoid becoming irrelevant?

>>36829726
Not the OP but I have some suggestions regarding why DHX and other studios will survive any shake outs in the toy marketing industry.

DHX has scaled themselves to the point where they are a primary media creation producer. That is, they can create almost any form of content for the cable industry. Over the past 15 years or so, they grew by buying other Canadian animation studios and the legal rights to old TV shows which they can now reboot when the need arises.

Look at what happened to Netflix late last year when they announced that they hired damn near every major independent show creator from Disney and CN. The creative teams behind The Powerpuff Girls, Gravity Falls and Adventure Time now work for Netflix. Apple is also growing their services including Apple TV channels featuring original content. There is no reason Apple would turn their noses up at content produced by DHX.

tl:dr DHX is in a good position with or without program orders from Hasbro.

Not true I think. Except for pone they're not making all that much. They did make a new Littlest Pet Shop series last year which bombed so spectacularly that almost nobody knows it even exists.

You may wish to visit their website and see their current production schedule.

They are currently working on The Deep, the latest generation of Inspector Gadget, the latest reboots of MegaMan, Bob the Builder, Polly Pockets as well as claiming they are still producing the animated Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and the Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show. All of this is beside the current EqG minis and FIM

This is far from being unproductive. Keep in mind they also own the Peanuts franchise lock, stock and barrel after the family sold DHX the legal rights. That's worth a lot of cash even if they don't produce new content. The licenses for greeting cards, Xmas tree accessories and every other thing related to Peanuts is making them royalty money.

Hi Jim. Welcome to the thread.

At some point reality sets in and people will do damn near anything to justify a position. One could state that the technical ability to forge images that may not be genuine from existing animation assets is possible. The problem that remains is the plausibility.

Is it plausible that there was a leak? Absolutely. There is no doubt a massive DHX leak occurred. Is it possible that many of the images posted in this thread are potentially faked? Yes. The first round of images were pretty much a xerox of older material from the show. However, there is far too much of a chance that some of this is very real content from the original leaks from before Season 8.

tl:dr Deny it all you like. You gain nothing from further defense to mollify the no-spoilers crowd.

I never go to /mlp/, so I was interested and surprised to see that every single poster, page after page after page, is "Anonymous."

Is there some reason for this, or is it just 4chan culture? It makes conversation impossible.

Sombra just wants to help babysit...

I'm not surprised to see sombra picking up flurry heart-- I kind of figured that any plot for invading the crystal empire that grogar might have would involve flurry heart. She has no stated purpose yet, and alicorns are supposed to ALWAYS have a purpose in the world.
So the plot in S9 will probably relate to what her role in the world is and grogar trying to use her to gain access to some magical power.

On that note, I'm also half expecting a "They kidnap flurry heart and she wrecks havok as they try and babysit her" plot at least once this season.

It helps to know the back story for /mlp/ in the first place. For those who don't know or remember, /mlp/ was created as an all-age friendly containment board after a year or more of people posting pone everyplace including /b/ where it became a flat out war.

Board culture being what it was and Moot not wanting to lose an audience for ad content on 4chan, he ordered the creation of /mlp/ and stated that was the only place on the chan where pone was welcome.

I don't remember if trips were banned on that board or not. It would not be a surprise if they were.

I know, right?
It just was weird how instead of acting like Cadence's arch nemesis and trying to invade it and steal the crystal heart she just kind of fucked off and then randomly started kidnapping people for her big plot and then decided to make a Twig clone plan.


One Thing I hope for in G5 is that if/when they bring back Chrysalis they try and focus her as cadence's foe more than any other characters.

Bumping with fresh information.

The ongoing show episode synopsis releases have finally confirmed the rest of the season 9 story arc today.

For those who doubted the leaked images, here are the facts...

Sombra and Grogar are both going to play major parts in the final season.
Shit is going to hit the fan starting in the first half hour of the season
There will be a lot of callbacks for the other villains from the previous seasons

Remember, you read it here first. Thanks for the insights and shout out to our 'Russian' hacker benefactor!

OK, time for a recap.

Most of the original images were attention grabbing and fake.

This one, however, was spot on, right down to the statue of Tirak and Cozy Glow as well as Discord dressed as a reporter in his first appearance in Episode One. Others were from the pre-production leaks as well.

Still care to call fake? Go ahead.

We don't know much about what's going on in the SECOND half of the season though, since the leaks were just for G5 and the start.
And G5 is malleable for when its going to come out and what's going to happen. (Heck, I think they already pushed its movie date back from what it said in the leaks)

The way Big Jim and Tara Strong have talked about a future for MLP, no one on the FiM team is willing to concede a future, at least as far as those two individuals are concerned. Tara's latest interview is hosted over at EqD for those wanting to read it.

The predicted prequel to Gen 5 is pretty much pushed out to anytime in 2021 now. Sources are very thin on this now, given the backburn over the leaks from Hasbro's e-mail accounts.

In related news. at least one cable TV guide has dropped three of the first second half of the season titles and synopsis. I'm sure someone can provide the screen caps of those or the url of the site that released that info.

Now all that remains is to wait one last time for Season 9 to resume. I need a break.

To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if hasbro is thinking about torpedoing doing MLP stuff besides half assed shorts.

Hasbro has alot of other properties on their plate right now that they need to devote resources too (Like star wars). Its possible that they're thinking about leaving their own properties fallow in order to focus on other more profitable things they have the licenses for.

That image you are linking to is fan art.

To answer your question, no. China stalled their broadcast schedule last week when the online cable guides indicated that the Dutch version would drop out and ahead of everyone else. Funny fact about the Dutch release is that it was a massive accident. Some tech uploaded the whole remaining catalog without permission. All the final Dutch language episodes were only available for two days. That was enough to ruin any further early international releases including China and Australia.

As has been said elsewhere here, there are plenty of screen grabs and a few webm clips popping up here and there. Most Youtube posts are erased as fast as they appear.

Equestria Daily has stopped reporting on any early releases to help stop the process despite the too fucking late status of the situation.

A brief update to tidy up some loose ends.

It's certain a second MLP movie will be released via Paramount Pictures. The studio has taken the URL MyLittlePonyMovie.com and the redirect gives you their logo as a place holder page.

No surprise given the change of distribution announced months ago. It will be fun to see MLP billboards in Hollywood again when the next movie is released.

That's a good way to look at it. Everyone who has seen the leaked e-mail infographics of the Gen 5 development time line are already predicting a two season train wreck. The 2021 movie will tell the story once we know more about what stuck and what was rejected from the 2016 plans.

The newest problem exposed in one line of a graphic posted either here or the Russian Hacker thread shows that Hasbro will not have a contract to show their series on any of the Discovery cable channels.

Could MLP Gen 5 go directly to Netflix as has a number of other series reboots? Given that Netflix has founded their own animation studio, they appear to be quite hungry for damn near any quality nostalgia properties.
