Leaks posted to EQD about the upcoming G5 movie (https://www.equestriadaily.com/2021/01/kidscreen-article-reveals-new-movie.html#more) indicate that it's set in Equestria's future. There is a certain amount of left/right fooferaw already over the use of "diversity" and "inclusion" in the descriptions. (Gay zebras?)

Kiss MLP good bye.

If this is what Hasbro thinks of the fan base, this will be as bad as the 2020 Lego Star Wars Xmas special movie.

tl:dr Equestria already purged bigotry in the final season of FiM. What will they purge this time?

Interesting, I wonder what corners they will explore there. And especially what kind of art style they will follow in the movie, or if they will come up with an altogether new one.

Here's the key question: who will be raising the sun?

Will it be a thousand-year-old Twilight, or a successor alicorn? If the latter, what has happened to Luna, Celestia, Twilight, and Cadance? Have they died? Is their successor descended from one of them, or from any G4 character? And if a thousand-year-old Twilight is seated on the throne, can she still be the Princess of Friendship when all her friends have died and turned to dust centuries since? Either way, death will have to enter the MLP picture in a way not seen in any previous gen. (Cue the theme song from Bambi.)

I doubt any of these questions will be addressed.

What I was always curious about though was why did Sun and Moon stop to move on their own in the first place.

We don't have a creation story (unless there's one in The Book of the Two Sisters, which I haven't read]. The impression we have from the canon is that ponies have always existed, and that the phenomena that we call "natural" are all caused and managed by them -- except in the spooky Everfree Forest, where things just HAPPEN BY THEMSELVES (shudder). So the canonical answer is that the sun and moon never moved by themselves.

>>36832251
The canonical answer is that we do not know because it was never explained.

The Journal of the Two Sisters also only mentions that which was said in the episode in which Celestia tried to be an actress: Before Celestia and Lunda six unicorns raised the sun and moon every day which led to them eventually losing their magic.

I wish it were as simple as being 'too girly' from a visual perspective. It's the utter lack of creativity. The sterile depictions of these three characters. Other than the cutie marks and the indication of which kind of pony they are, the lack of effort to differentiation marks all of them as little more than xerox clones.

Mix this with the reports of this show being centered on the left's attempt to inject race and identity politics into the core story and it's little more than pandering to the small minds that embrace such diatribe.

I'm out.

I don't see any evidence, apart from idle speculation, that these are G5 images.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36832282

>>36832281
The evidence is pretty basic. Hasbro has to approve licensed products. Given this must be a licensed product line, it's been reviewed and approved by Hasbro legal.

Look closely at the promotional image and you'll see an obscured line of text at the top of the sheet. "Every----- can make a difference" is clearly displayed. One might extrapolate that the large word is "Everypony" or it might be Everyone. That goes into conjecture. Again, Hasbro had to sign off on that text message as part of the contract they signed with the company producing this.

It's not a leap. It's logic in action. Had this been some random fan produced blanket set, I might have dismissed this as baseless conjecture. However, this is a product that conforms to the rules that Hasbro sets out when people pay the $10,000 fee for each unique MLP based product produced under license.

Given the bland, uninspired and inoffensive images on this bedding set, the writing is on the wall. Get ready for a really lame G5 series.

Why does this have to be a licensed product line? The only evidence is this conjecture on EQD:

"The company, Jerry Fabrics, has been known to license MLP in the past and even has some G4 products awaiting release for later this year."

Nice effort with your sarcasm. You forgot that the primary reason no one in our fandom talks FF. It was an abject failure, seen as the worst attempt to ride the coat tales of MLP.

It crashed and burned after two seasons. It took over a half decade to find a US network that would pay for this dreck. There are only 26 episodes.

Good. It only gets worse the deeper you dig. Now that Hasbro has abandoned the theatrical release in favor of Netflix as their streaming partner along with dropping classic animation in favor of whatever this 3D process is being created with for the G5 series, this could hold out for two to three seasons like NuRa and Voltron did.

Another fresh EqD article on the official release is available.

>I have to grudgingly admit, though, that "Maretime Bay" isn't a bad place name.

The writers have had some leeway to be 'creative' I guess. As long as Hasbro gets their licensing fees and toy sales, it's all good in their eyes.

There's a Twitter link to an animated sample of the actual animation of characters.

I see that G5 fanart has already started showing up on EQD (https://www.equestriadaily.com/2021/02/giant-drawfriend-stuff-pony-art-gallery.html#more). Most of the current specimens look like G4 ponies with fetlocks. It may take a while for the full degradation to sink in.

I will say the actual animation isn't bad at all. It's at the level of Disney's in-house 3D studio but far short of Pixar's better techniques and they should be pleased with how far they've come.

What is killing this is the meta of the story right out of the gate along with the sterile character designs. Humor cannot overcome the pathetic socialist dogma baked into the core story. Blame and shame the authority figures as the new trio of 'heroes' do their best to bring back what had failed in their world.

Sum fun, eh?

I don't think "socialist dogma" is a problem. A lot of great art is Marxist (Auden, Brecht, Eisenstein), and MLP isn't going to be taking on capitalism in any case. (I think what gets your goat is the whole woke inclusivity thing, which isn't connected to economic theory.) The only problems we know about so far are the graphics -- specifically, the Filly Funtasia character designs -- and the general feeling of Puppet World that is inherent to CGI animation. But those are huge problems.

>MLP isn't going to be taking on capitalism in any case.
I disagree. Disrupting social norms is very much an attack on Capitalism. Change is at the core of the new story. The three main characters are actively resisting what they consider the source of what is being defended by their society. Segregation of the three breeds of ponies failed for a reason and you know the writers are going to take the straightest path to disruption: attack those in power promoting the status quo.

Spoiling due to political comparison:
Kind of like what Creepy Uncle Joe and his administration are attempting to do the US by disrupting social norms and promoting plans that will cause a great deal of long term economic hurt for hundreds of millions of people.

Here's the thing. The series won't be out till 2022. It's early 2021. Voice recording happens a year in advance, so in the best case scenario, only the first few episodes of the season would be written at this point, and fewer still actually recorded in studio. It's not likely that a promotional guy would have information about a season that largely isn't written or voice recorded yet.

So feel free to continue dropping info, and if you're legit you can dunk in our faces after, but from my standpoint I think skepticism is warranted.

I like the sound of it all. Kinda promising.

None of it is real. It’s just 1 guy talking to himself across multiple names.

Then it's neat imagining it'd be real.

Poll on EQD: "What do you think of the G5 ponies' art style?" 58% like it, 8% don't, the rest are indifferent.

If this is a fair sample of the fandom, I don't know why Filly Funtasia bombed. The graphics are identical.

>Poll on EQD:
Found your problem.

We're not that kind of fan base. They want anything Hasbro can produce in bulk. Wait for the tears to fall once we see the movie and series for themselves. I'll wager if you poll them about any topic you'd get the same responses. They probably approve of Generation 3.5.

Oh God, those 3.5 graphics.

Like I said, IF EQD is a fair sample of the fandom. (Are we?)
