Hasbro Confirms Friendship is Magic Ending This Season EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829797

We all knew this was coming, but it’s still very sad. It’s also long past time to move on. I hope this is the best season of the show, and they find a way to end it gracefully and in the spirit of its humble beginnings. I don’t need a big baddie, just give me 44 minutes to say goodbye and thank you.

One thing is certain, I’m gonna be a blubbering mess on the day of the finale. I’m kinda feeling it right now. This show has meant so much to me. It’s basically shaped the last 8 years of my life. It was a source of beauty, warmth, and happiness. It was and still is a light when I needed it most. I’ve never seen a cartoon with more heart, passion, and genuine talent put into its production. This is gonna feel like losing a loved one.

I wonder if the new movie (2021) will be FiM, or to introduce Gen5.

I've been watching the show since season 1 ended. I hate to see it go, but i'm glad it will have a real ending instead of being ran into the ground.

>>36829802
It would be ponderous as hell to invest in a movie for a generation you’ve retired. The 2021 movie would have to be Gen 5.

>>36829804
Well, they did say they intend to continue in other media. Maybe that media will include FiM movies.

Let me counterpoint you and ask, which film would sell more tickets, a FiM movie released as the first installment since the regular season format ended, or a brand new franchise of MLP which hasn't built a fanbase yet?

They do know we're still money, I think and I think a Gen4 movie would outsell a Gen5 one.

Not the end, that much isn't hard to believe.

But "just the beginning"? Seriously?

Gen 5 is all but confirmed, so they would be shooting themselves in the foot by plunking down mega millions for a line of toys that’ll compete for shelf space and dollars directly AGAINST the line they’re launching for the 2020s.

>>36829810
You make good points, but I'm not convinced yet. I'm going to hold out hope. After all, Hasbro maintains about four different lines of Transformers at a time, from Michael Bay ones to kid ones to comic based ones to resculpts of the original series, so competing for shelf space doesn't seem to be a problem. I could see a line of movie toys, in the higher priced Guardians of Harmony series alongside their regular line. Guess I'll just have to wait and see.

What exactly do y'all think they mean? Comics? EQG on youtube?

It is a saying after all.

It's about money, and you could make it by a movie about either generation.

Because it feels like the right time? Sort of natural? I mean, all the little horsie girls have kind of moved to the end of their progression, right? Dashie is a Wonderbolt, Fluttershy built a grand home for animals, Rarity has built an empire of fashion, Twi is spreading the lessons she once learned herself...

I have those feelings too, but they're also balanced with a feeling that where they are now is not the end for them. Even if their wishes have been fulfilled, there's no way they'll just grow complacent. I know there are still times in their lives yet to see and I'm saddened I won't get to see where they go next.

Yes, it has to end. Still, I do not want it to.

Cloud!materiaXYYCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829827

Let's see if I can remember my tripcode. (Edit: Yay! I can)

Seen this coming since the leaks over a year ago, which were very reliable and pretty clearly the real deal, and have been okay with it (I thought the movie and student six etc left the show plenty of room for expansion and revitalisation but that if they wanted to end it then had a view of "so be it"), but it still felt like a hit to the stomach seeing the official announcement.

I was hoping the upcoming movie would be G4, a bit like how the Star Trek movies were an extended goodbye after TOS and TNG ended, just to kind of wean us off it gently, but indeed it looks to be a clean break.

It's alright as those Bronies who've stuck it out this long will probably be around forever, and there are still plenty of us out there. The chans may be on life support compared to the past but some chat groups are thriving. We may never see characters like Derpy again in official media (after all, she was born from a DHX animation error, she's kind of 'their thing') but as long as fans keep drawing these characters, posting their images etc they never really go away :)

I'll at least check out G5. Part of me was thinking it'd be a good time to walk away and drop the MLP obsession and become a normie again, but I can't stomach that, just too invested in it now. I'm kind of excited to see what the future holds.

I too am going to be an absolute mess when the final credits roll.
It'll be a major dilemma whether or not to go to a finale meet - part of me wants to see it out with brony friends together, all see the final moments at once, hug it out, have a bit of a party. The other part of me wants to see it alone and have a proper cry (still can't help holding back somewhat in company) and make sure it's a quality viewing not interrupted with ads and stream glitches etc. Can't decide!

Nine years running, soon to be nine seasons, soon to be over 200 episodes, a theatrical movie, a spin off that's still going on, a Christmas special, books, comics series, and a whole ton of other stuff and merchandise. So many shows are lucky to get just a few seasons to reach the 65 episode syndication goal, so I'd say this series can end with its head high with how long it's been able to go on for and for what it's created. I bet no one would think that it would be the longest lasting show once the Hub started, or even that it'd outlast everything even after the Hub ended. Getting flashbacks to Oppy now, for speaking of things that lasted far longer than anyone could've expected.

>>36829825
I can see the reasoning here. I'd rather a show go out well rather than turn into a zombie (I was unhappy with how voltron degraded from its early seasons for example), and I AM looking forward to G5.

>>36829799
Same.

>>36829844
Huh, besides the original TMNT, not thinking of a whole lot of cartoons (non-anime) that lasted that long.
