So, working from the concept that everything in FiM is canon with no opportunity for retcons, and that this is taking place in the same world, what's the least bad and offensive direction they could take? I'm really racking my brain for something that isn't awful.
I've come up with three ideas that would at least be better than the Disney Star Wars kerfuffle.

1). Bring back Twilight's friends though some magical bullshit.
2). Kill off all the alicorns in a heroic sacrifice to get them out of the series.
3). Have the series take place away from central Equestria, and just never bring the old characters up.
>>
>>36581640
2 is most likely (as a backstory), but 3 is possible too.
4th: make it 50000 years into the future, all alicorns died due to old age.
>>
>>36581640
>inb4 G5 is a G4 prequel

It's the easy way out.
>>
>>36581719
far as im concerned, without Faust approval NONE of this shit retcons anything G4. yeah sue me, consoomers.

I don't know, Rick. I'm not really sure it's possible for "everything" in FiM to be canon when FiM had retcons already.
Besides, how would something like this even work? Would someone watch all of FiM to develop a *different* series, when some of the writers and story editors in FiM had watched exactly zero episodes before writing their crap? Sounds hella contrived.

The mane 6 will be folklore heroes whose legends inspire the pony strains to come together and reunite.

That's why dash and AJ got paired up, it's literally 'look our ancestral heroes fucked'

No they really can't be so dogshit insane to make a show about non-pony characters living high school life and slap the name pony from Equestria on it. That would be absolutely blasphemous.

FiM after S3 was already like Star Wars sequels (it was even named MLP 2.0 during the production). G5 is triquel, so you can imagine how shitty it will be when the promotion already says that protagonist is an activist.

mark my words

oh they're continuing fim then? if they actually said the protagonist is an activist this might actually hurt them tremendously and it will be hilarious. I just thought the dragons in last thread were related to G5, so I didn't figure it was talking about gen 5

G5 merch is coming in August 2021.
Merch always have logo and stock images of characters in them.
They will reveal all merch that's coming in this fiscal year (March 2021-February 2022)
Therefore they will 100% show G5 merch.
Therefore we will know characters and logo for sure.

I’m not expecting much, but I’m also not expecting it to be unwatchable either. There might be some salvageable parts, like the character designs are cute or interesting lore that actually compliments the established FiM world. Really hope the wokeshit doesn’t end up tainting all together, it probably will though.

I genuinely can't even begin to imagine what some people are thinking when they say they're afraid g5 might "ruin" g4. If after all that happened in g4 anyone still thinks that g4 needs an external force to get "ruined," probably not even making all of Marsminer's art canon would ruin anything for you.

I think it's already been established that they're gonna switch over to human protagonists. Hasbro doesn't actually want us to have or enjoy ponies, they've proved as much over the years.

That's precisely what G5 aims to do, shit you not.

I wouldn't doubt it. Even before Fame and Misfortune, I have believed for years that, if not Hasbro, than the show runners at least have always hated the adult fandom, but people would always reeee if I said this.

Had an awful, awful nightmare last night that the movie quite literally started bringing real world politics into it, and one character started going off about Making America (yes really) Great Again and the other ponies started talking about why they needed to #SettleForBiden, then they brought up crime statistics in black neighborhoods and I was screaming. I was literally screaming for help and I think I was crying too, it was like an evil force wanted me to witness this hell and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it.

Oddly enough, this was all in the FiM art style since right now I genuinely cannot visualize what the movie is going to look like.

Nah, during years when Toy Fair is a thing most of the time press releases are sent out to sites a day before the show room is open to journalists/investors. We got a huuuuuge flood of news for the first movie one day before the Toy Fair started, so it’s looking like February 24th is our field day. Since Hasbro is based in the East Coast, expect around 9 AM - 12 PM for the big stuff.

the franchise was thouroughly and entirely dead to Hasbro so hiring someone like Lauren Faust had absolutely no risk, and after they hired her they "left her alone to do whatever she wanted" (her own words) and then the Hasbro executive Mike vogel heard the gala song from down the hall in his office and decided he needed to get involved with FIM (his own words)
and more and more executive wanted to get a slice of Lauren's pie like gretchen forrest and tyla bucher who came up with eqg
and repeat until here we are now
>>
>>36586820
Lmao.
>>
>>36586106
I think you're right
it's a very big difference from when Lauren and her team were running things and were downright honored to have one of the largest most dedicated subcultures in the history of Humanity revering their work
lauren even went and had them add derpy to scenes for episodes that were technically already "golden" just for the fans

I don't think it's "Hasbro hates the fandom and wants nothing to do with us", it's more "Hasbro sees us as extra income and panders to us for money, but isn't down with the porn/bad press" because there was a time MLP was a plague on Hot Topic. They went out of their way to design brony targeted merchandise with it's own branding of black and white. They were just fine with milking the fandom for all it was worth in it's fad days, and if they really hated us I don't think Slice of Life (in all it's cringy glory) would exist. This is why I don't think they're ever going back to the days of mindless drivel being MLP's supplementary material, because they know that from G4 onwards MLP will always be inexplicably tied to media outside of the toy line. They can't do tea parties and cupcake parties anymore, because it will drive more buzz to their brand (and by extension their products) if it has an actual story to tell. Of course, the writing will probably end up shitty in the wrong hands, but they really can't go back to G3.

The current G4 - G5 transition is shaping up to be like the continuation of G1 to G1.5 (for more 'modern and inclusive' kids). Nothing says this won't continue another G3 oblivion. Despite everything I'm still in the hopeful camp, for now.
>>
>>36587146
Oh yeah I don't doubt that the writing won't suck in some way, shape or form, but there's no way they're ever going back to not giving a shit about MLP animated media by pushing out substanceless bargain bin DVD fodder again. If they were planning on doing that, I don't think they'd be making another major motion picture.
>>
>>36587118
The irony is a return to form would help them. They were involved in the downfall of g4. When the manager goes into the kitchen and starts fucking up what the chef is making this is what you get.
The best thing Hasbro can do for pony is butt out and let creatives in charge again. And no sarc even a return to g3 would be better than what they'll have in store.
>>
>>36587146
>old cartoons inclusiveness> modern day media inclusiveness
There's not going to be canon outright stated gay shit because this is still mlp and that would scare parents, anyway as long the show remains pony centric it will all be cool but given the info they dropped it might not be the case shit i was attempting to be positive but I'm so expecting the worst so fucking much

More than that, it would be tarnish the brand reputation with their target markets: China and India

>>
>>36587261
Honestly? I can't really disagree with you. I really wish these large corporations would realize that not everything they make needs to say something, and I'm not even talking about in a political sense. The target audience and the fandom would be just fine if G5 was just the Western CGDCT show like the early seasons of FiM were known for. The staff really shot themselves in the foot for making the later seasons a confusing mess of contradictory lore and out of character nightmares, so if they just made everything simple again and didn't shove current day issues for woke points into it I really don't think anyone would have too much of a problem with it. They're already getting bad press by yapping to the media about how woke the new movie is gonna be, we don't even know what it looks like yet and that's what they're the most proud of. I want to rip my hair out.
>>
>>36587285
Oh yeah, that too. IIRC that's the reason Steven Universe got cut short. I remember the season finale for the 5th season literally felt like checkboxes were being ticked as it went on for the things they hadn't done in the show yet but needed to do before it wrapped up, come to find out Cartoon Network was getting pulled in international countries due to the lesbian tones from that specific show and they were hesitant to renew it for that reason. There's actually an interesting video on that subject somewhere on YouTube, but my point is if Cartoon Network would do that to one of it's most successful shows since the OG Powerpuff Girls then there's no way Hasbro's gonna go overboard with the LGBT stuff in G5, because at the end of the day they rely on parents. Conservative parents and parents in other countries won't buy their kids pony dolls if they're lezzing out with each other on screen.

And agreed. I'm cool with the diversity in new pony types, but Hasbro's never going full My Little Creature. The perfect place to test out that concept would be the season 8 toy line, but even then they only made Sandbar and Silverstream because they were the cheapest and easiest to make. I think going forward we can rest on the creatures overtaking pony thing because it's not happening.

Like, set the show 300 years in the future and say that the princesses died a couple centuries ago. Having a pair of immortal god-princesses die of old age in some shitty nursing home is obviously terrible and stupid, but so is having them retire in the first place, and I'll take any excuse to keep them out of the hands of whatever hacks end up writing G5.
>>
>>36586820
So, it was never about money. Greed for money didn't destroy FiM. It was pure ego of executives that was at fault.

Get ready Anon, in nu-mlp they raped them to death. In G5 they are going to rape their corpses.
>>
If G5 never mention existing G4 characters, how can they ruin continuity with G4?
1) Have a war, but no Windigos show up
2) Ponies born with Cutie Marks, adult blank-flank mares/stallions, non-ponies with cutie marks.
3) Earth Ponies having flashy superpowers.
4) Unicorns can't do telekinesis
5) Dragons getting burned by fire
6) Weather works by itself
7) Talking pets
Anything else?

That line about being in the same world as FiM and PL is suspicious. Do you think PL s02 finale will tie-in g4 and g4.5? (like, in the PL s02 finale Pinkie wakes up to her RR-styled room, with entirety of PL being a dream)

This would be absolutely awful though. Think about it for a second, Pinkie is dreaming of hanging out with her friends, that's the entire point of Pony Life, it's just Cheers with ponies. And then she wakes up to a world where not only that probably doesn't happen often anymore, but also she only sees Twilight once a month. The message would literally be, "being with your friends is nothing but a childish dream!" In a fucking world where friendship is allegedly magic. It would be even worse than the fucking finale.

It's so unspeakably terrible that now I'm completely sure that this is exactly what will happen.
>>
>>36581356
/mlp/ will hate it, circlejerk about hating it, and reject any other opinions, calling the outside world stupid for having a more nuanced opinion.

>>36590057
/mlp/ can love something. But the problem is, the "love" is a meta-stable state in /mlp/, and "hate" is a stable state. All it takes is one autist to get the hate bandwagon rolling. Manga is the prime example of autist eventually getting what he wants. There's other autist shitting on Pencils, for esoteric reason, and I'm sure he would eventually get the whole board into hating him. And people get surprised why we are losing creators. Not everyone have a beaten wife complex, if they feel unwelcome, they just leave.
>>
>>36590143
That's kind of a weak argument, since none of this would be a problem if Hasbro produced something, ANYTHING, decent for the franchise and the board would subsequently be flooded with wholesome positivity.
>>
>>36581356

>>36590155

>>36589238

>>
>>36590219
"Cute ponies doing cute things" on its own is fucking G3, fuck off, the first two seasons were so appealing because of the sense of wonder and adventure
>>
>>36590221
Everyone who's not retarded agrees in retrospect that the worst part of the early seasons were the adventure two parters with the exception of canterlot wedding. It should always be cute ponies doing cute things with sprinklings of interesting lore, not fucking war. They gave you the fights and war that you faggots wanted so badly in later seasons and you hated it.
>>
>>36590221
fuck forgot to add

The focus on shitty lore and adventuring is what got us shit like everycreature and the treehouse of harmony and everything after season 5 that nobody gave a shit about. All anyone came for in the first place was the ponies being cute. People just deluded themselves into thinking that expanding on lore and pointless character backstories would justify them watching the cute pony show and make it more adult.
>>
>>36590237
I always really enjoyed the adventure parts. Ironically, mostly because the character writing in those bits was usually on point. Like in that episode where Chrysalis created evil doubles of the mane 6. You actually see Pinkie Pie comforting Fluttershy and hugging her after someone made her cry.

In some of the later more casual episodes, she would scream Flutters worst fears at her until Fluttershy started to sob on the ground, and then Pinkie still would not care and had to be forcibly pulled away from hurting Flutters. Even though in S1 she is shown to specifically keep others from pranking Fluttershy in order not to hurt her feelings.

I also like the mythology aspects these episodes brought. Cute ponies in a fantasy world has a lot of charme to me. In contrast, episodes in Manehatten or Las Pegasus were always pretty off-putting to me due to how "human" and normal everything suddenly was.

I can totally see why you wouldn't like them though. Things got way too serious at times, to the point of slightly cringy. And the way they advanced the story to "more responsibilities!", "less comfy things!", and "change everything!" was pretty off-putting. I found myself longing for those nice slice of life episodes between the mane 6 from seasons 1 and 2 in the later seasons a lot. I miss Twilight being just a casual nerdy unicorn who lives in a tree library and hangs out with her friends. Her being a god-like princess of most of the known world against her will is not very relatable to me.
>>
>>36590234
Obligatory reminder that Fall Weather Friends was a heavy lore episode, while its unnecessary and completely stupid rehash Non-Compete Clause had zero lore whatsoever.

It's easy to blame lore for everything wrong with the show when it's undeniable that at some point the writers stopped giving a fuck and genuinely thought that throwing laser battles everywhere was a good substitute for a real story, no wonder why we got an avengers endgame ripoff as series finale. But it's incredibly naive to think that things would have been better without lore.
The problem was not whether or not FiM had lore, the problem was that Hasbro hired bottom of the barrel retards as writers. And, no matter how the g5 setting is, that will stay the same. If you think a show that were simply about "cute ponies doing cute things" would be harder to destroy, you haven't been paying attention to g4.
>>
>3 days remaining
>>
>>36590302
>>36590302
I wasn't being clear before but it's not that I think the show would have been better without any lore, it's that the increased focus on lore and efforts to turn a slice of life show into some high fantasy epic (exactly what stupid faggots on this board were begging for from day one) ruined the show. Fall Weather Friends was well liked because it was simple lore being used for cute shit, while nobody gives a fuck about Shadow Play or Royal Tensions because it's endless strings of names and characters and boring magic that nobody gives a fuck about but were pushed in for retarded unnecessary worldbuilding purposes and pandering.
>>
>>36590261
Yeah, I wasn't being clear enough before. The fantasy world is a big part of the appeal, but it should never, ever be what drives the episodes in any particular way.
> And the way they advanced the story to "more responsibilities!", "less comfy things!"
Pretty much this. The increased focus on lore lead to increased seriousness in tone revolving around superficial stakes. The leaning towards high fantasy adventure was never going to work because nobody will ever seriously believe that friendship won't win. All anyone cares about at the end of the day is the relationships between the ponies. The lore should only exist to spice that up a little and help create story ideas, not to be the focus.

It's actually very decent, discounting little things like the non-explanation explanation of ToH's origin, not letting Pony of Shadow be a threat, and contradicting M6's sacrifice of Elements in s04.
Now, the real example would be s05 finale, "The Cutie Re-Mark". It's ironically similar to Doctor Who, fan wanks and running around is 90% of the run time, and actual things happening is 10% of the time. "Look! A Weeping Angel!" is just replaced to "Look! Nightmare Moon!".

What the fuck are you talking about. Pokemon leagues aren't comparable to the stakes in mlp two parters. MLP two parters and pokemon movies are more comparable because we've seen the same characters face the same odds over and over and they've never lost, yet there's some stupid attempt at making it seem like a high stakes, thrilling (or mature in mlp's case) story. KYS.
