Hell, O Pinkie Pie Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830724

The new Pinkie Pie Show from Hasbro. I hope this isn't a foretaste of G5 (Pinkie Pie Presents Her New Show 'Hello Pinkie Pie'! 🎙️ | My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)

But I'm afraid it is.

3-D CGI-- reportedly the medium for the movie that will kick off the next gen. Hello, Filly Funtasia!

Watch the short and notice what Hasbro did. In short, this is a cheap grab at market awareness and not a hint of the certain character redesigns that will come with G5 MLP.

Notice that they used Mama Faust's character designs and names for Ponk and Gummy. Had this been a full blown effort to move away from G4 as fast as possible, Hasbro would not have left any asset from G4 in play. These shorts are just a filler for however long the execs at Hasbro feel they serve any purpose.

My bet is that once G4 ends in October, all G4 designs will be put on ice and we'll get the new character designs when the next movie is released.

Yep
My guess is that G5 will be more like the Rainbow Roadtrip special

This.

I knew saving those e-mail documents was going to come in handy. While the schedule dates have changed, this was Hasbro's plan running up to the end of FIM and transition to Gen 5. I'll leave a few relevant graphics here.

In short, the plan for the G5 intro movie was always CGI with a hard reverse to ToonBoom for the series. This is unchanged for the moment despite debate when this schedule was proposed back in '16.

Here's another infographic roadmap that may have changed only by the proposed time frame.

This last screen shot shows the thinking around how much change Hasbro is ready to make to MLP going forward, including the open slam of Applejack as a character and what they could do to make the staff more happy working with her character in G5.

One last insight on Hasbro's thinking about future character designs. Kind of makes me think I'd never be happy in this kind of workplace knowing people who think like this employee are in charge.

It appears that Hasbro isn't done milking the Ponk for extra points.

Watch this official short if you dare.

Yeah, know what you mean. GOOD LORD is that bad CGI.
WTF.

>>36830745
Honestly, wondering when we'll get more G5 leaks given how everything about G4 is leaking like the titanic.

>>36830761
Too much darlings for the darling jar :p

Though, in seriousness, they tend to focus on the "Big three" (Dash, Ponk and twilight) due to sales. Sadly.

>>36830758
This one is actually better than the CGI one TBH.
