some board artist just leaked two boards from the upcoming series on his portfoliohttps://e8orton.weebly.com/gallery.html
>>37679206>>37679208Nice find! G5 confirmed for ladybugs and whatever is going on with hitch
>>37679206Looks Hitch will either become a vigilante or fight one, or possibly some masked criminal.
>>37679206>stalliondowell>original file name"G5 won't have any more references to G4" doomfags BTFO.
>>37679224The mysterious stallion do well?
>>37679232Engaging maximum kino protocols.
Is there any confirmation on whether the series is 2d or 3d yet?
So does this mean the show is gonna be 3D or 2D?
>>37679232What in the fuck are you talking about
>>37679206Hitch becomes a superhero? I didn't really like the superhero stories in FIM, I hope this is unused.
>>37679240Show is confirmed 3D, but storyboards are still drawn out in 2D for obvious reasons.
>>37679238>>37679240How are people still fucking asking. Lurk more you fags.https://boards.greenhouse.io/atomiccartoons/jobs/4754449003It's 3D.
>>37679206R63 Mare Do Well?
>>37679253massive apologies that we’re not super obsessed with g5 to keep up with their news
>>37679206>Stallion Do WellYou have my attention solely because it reminds me of The Shadow
slashy at it again
>>37679206>Tags: stallion on stallion, masked male, superhero
I'm skeptical The first G5 storyboard drawings we've seen also went unused
>>37679240yeah hold on let me just make a 3D storyboard really quick
>>37679206>Mysterious Mare Do Well referenceThey going so deep into the series, theres no way they wont re introduce Discord
>>37679206Portfolios are not "leaks".
>>37679206Is that Boymare Do Well?
>>37679244It would make sense for a cop to become a superhero or vigilante
>>37679206>mare do well costumeFuck. They had like 200 episodes to copy from, and they go straight for the worst one.
>>37679333Trips confirmBut imagine Discord in 3D
Welp. It literally can't be worse than the original Mysterious Mare Do Well.
>>37679343>the worst one…I don’t want to destroy your innocence.>>37679346If they bring him back, they’ll keep him 2D for weirndess points.
>>37679346SFM fan made Discord looks awful but i imagine they would make him look better in boom. Either that or theu will just introduce his daughter pony or something
>>37679343Next episode they will reference is Yakity Sax
>>37679366I'm personally waiting for non-compete clause
>>37679206>Stallion do wellNice callback
>>37679206Well i guess its better to retell bad episodes in order to fix them rather than trying to copy best episodes and create something weaker
>>37679372At worst they will just make him turn into a pony as permanent disguise
>>37679208Poor little bug on the wall, ding, ding!
>>37679380>Hitch plays the role of both Gordon and BatmanWhat could go wrong?
>>37679208Izzy is going to be in this series too!
>>37679206"leak" is a pretty liberal term to use here.
>>37679206>filenamehasbro will keep making episodes like this to spite us
>>37679232Nigga people complain about the G4 references only existing to make you say 'I remember that.' rather than actually fitting in the world.It means nothing.If anything this is just more of that, why the fuck would 'mare-do-well' of all things be something that survives as a concept long enough for hitch to learn about.As opposed to a fuck ton of other things.
>>37679344>>37679485Gay and not canon.
>>37679290Yeah, but that was four years before the actual G5 movie was released, whereas the series is already releasing next year, with the special coming out in just a few months.
>>37679275Nigger that info was out there everywhere on the board after the hasbro investor event. You needed only to open the fucking sticky, ctrl + f for links and watch the recap. That's what I did, literally 2 minutes worth of my time.LURKMOAR
>>37679275Also>weWhere do you think we are?
>>37679206Thread theme: https://youtu.be/kRZAk2rfESU
>>37679621Might be a troll.
>>37679674>>37679676Looks kinda tokusatsu-ish
>>37679232G4fags are gonna have a field day comparing old episodes to new ones
>>37679696Now mirror the hitch side
Finally spilled my booze on myself. I had been doing so well this stream too
>>37679725Fuck, wrong thread>>37649056maybe I have been drinking too much
>>37679747He underwent some stress between the movie and series, he’s losing hair.
>>37679528YOUR gay and not canon
>>37679994Why are you posting Glimmy? She's not afraid of anything
>>37680048she is going to eat the ladybug
>>37679258no, I don't watch g5
>>37680892>spoonfeed me>>37679208>ladybugsPortal to Breezie/other dimension confirmed?
>>37680914>>spoonfeed meplease don't, it tastes icky
how long until this dude gets fired for posting this stuffhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Me8ngq1EO3E
>>37680932Maybe it’s a scrapped episode?
>>37680955Other staff are literally not even allowed to list "MLP" in their portfolio, it's just "NDA CGI show". Though I'm not sure why, it's not like it's a secret, both Hasbro, Netflix and Atomic Cartoons confirmed existence of G5 show already.
>>37680932Maybe the guy is planing to punch out anyway. I mean it can't be too hard to figure out where it's coming from, there has to be only a handful of people involved with the show writing and story-boarding at this point.
>>37680955Maybe it was supposed to be behind the password, but accidentally was posted in public section of the site?
why the fuck are they still wasting their resources on this failed gen
>>37679206Is this entire series just going to be rehashes of FiM episodes for nostalgia bait?
>>37680932not happeningthey cant find anybody to work, not for this project or anywhere
>>37681013My guess is one episode per half-season.
mods sticky this and unpin the anniversary thread and watch them freak out haha
>>37679346Could be great but I guess in 3D they'll have even less ability/budget to do reality-bending Discord stuff. Which would ruin it.>>37679359>they’ll keep him 2DNow that'd be great.
>>37680932the birds look pretty cute in those hats
>>37681048cute birds doing cute things :)
>>37680932Seems like a daydream if the critters are dolled up
>>37681086An one-second gag?
>>37681097A few seconds maybe.
>>37681086It could be part of a song, as well.
>>37679206In his video: "(...)but there will be much better examples , presentation wise, very soon."If he doesn't get scared and take the site down, may it's worth to keep an eye out for his work. More leaks soon.
>>37680932>Crab with hat over its eyesLove that cute little snibbety snab
>>37681135Possibly teasing proper screenshots?
>>37679208I got 5 bucks that says Izzy eats it to gain its magical power.
>>37679244Isn't that "Mare Do Well"?
>>37679244>>37679341Considering it plays in modern times, maybe comics are the reason why Hitch became a sheriff in the firts place.
>>37679397I could see them doing an episode where Hitch, frustrated by the hum-drum nature of his sheriff’s job and feeling unappreciated, decides to fight crime as a glamorous masked vigilante instead. Hilarity ensues, and the episode ends with Hitch gaining a better appreciation for his job and the townsponies realizing they should appreciate him better.
>>37679208What's the deal with ladybugs?
>>37679206Is James Marsden actually going to voice Hitch again?
>>37681287They're near tears of space-time
>>37679206Maybe if this guy continues to post shit we can get confirmation on whether or not Sunnycorn is permanent.
>>37681347It would be very obvious confirmation, but sure.
>>37679206Do a Q&A leaker. I demand it.
>>37679208>Izzy is so big she's unfocusedPippchads...
>>37680932>BTAS Holy based
>>37681396>>37679208Someone need to edit that ladybug into pipp
>>37680932Who could that masked crab be?
>>37680932his job is probably long over, else he wouldn't post them. desu it's not rare for hasbro have series finished early but doesn't release them because muh global toy distribution is not yet ready
>>37679206>m'ladies>>37679208Izzy, you can't fuggo the buggo>>37679232nostalgia and memberberries sell, we will have mane 6 in 3d time travel to solve g5 problems at least once, that's for sure>>37679275it's ok anon don't worry>>37679333I want to see a hangout friendshipless depressed Discord (or just his memory erased) I prefer him the mischievous way
>>37679696>Let me tell you about "The Celestia Delusion"
>>37681534Clap your hooves and do a little shake!
Just when I thought Hitch couldn't get anymore alpha
>>37680932HOLY SHIT SO AT NIGHT HE TURNS INTO DARKWING HITCH
>>37679403I'm not going to let that bitch steals the show from me again!
>>37680932Probably Neflix policy why he's able to post BTS stuff, they seem pretty lax when it comes those stuff.
>>37679673nice taste in theme >>37680932It seems the animal minions in the movie will also appear in the show regularly
>>37681022NOOOO you can't do that to my aniverserino!
So uhh I expected some level of G4 callbacks and references, I didn't expect just full on the return of Mare Do Well (but a Stallion this time). Not at all an episode I expected them to refer to lol.
>>37681347I don't think so, the horn and the wings where transparent like not part of her body/magical addons >>37681493I can believe this shit specially with the ching chong virus >>37681549maybe this board is not full of zoomers after all...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCrn-wrJW5Y
Hitch being a superhero would make me like him more
https://www.dropbox.com/s/3m0z8828ygec6x4/ABOUT%20THE%20SHOWS-FINAL.docx?dl=0>My Little Pony>Format:TBD>Release: To be announced at a later date>Synopsis: TBDNot much info, huh.
>>3768188822 MINUTE EPISODES4 SPECIALS
>>37681888pipeline status: SUPERCHARGED
>>37681888>4 x 44minsIs that number the movie + the special (+shorts) weirdly divided or dare I hope?
>>37679206>>37679208>>37680932>>37681888fake and gay
>>37679253>>37679248Let me delusionally hope the series is going to be in 2d anyway. Id rather watch these storyboards than 3DCG.
>>37681941Atomic didn't do the movie, that was eOne and Boulder. So it does actually look like 4 specials unless someone's fucked up.
>>37681959>he wants littlest pet shop graphics
>>37681969Ok. which would further imply no Boulder helping with the specials, fuck
>>37681888>FOUR SPECIALSFOUR SPECIALS>FOUR SPECIALSFOUR SPECIALS
>>37681888Oh crap, I was hoping that Boulder would make at least the special. Although on the other hand I'm glad that there will be four specials, even if Netflix fucks up the show releasing everything at once, the specials will probably be more spaced out.
>>37681888>4 x 44 minsmore BGE-tier kino I hope
More specials than G4 ever got, G5 fags stay winninghopefully one of them will be EQG
>>37681980What if Boulder is making Spring special, and Atomic making Fall specials?
>>37682003It’d be like pony pingpong with the back and forth between studios. That would also imply either more specials—excessive—or their PowerPoint omitting an important piece of info.If Atomic is decent, then you could look at it this way: we got to enjoy the ponies in cinematic quality, and the rest, while downgraded, will at least be consistent.
Scraped from his gallery https://www.davidalcarria.com/galleryhttps://u.smutty.horse/mdpsvoexlji.7z
>>37682020Oops wrong thread
>>37681990>even if Netflix fucks up the show releasing everything at onceThey always release a show season in 2 batches, so not everything will be released at once.
>>37679206>Mare Do Well is backLet the seething commence.
>>37681990>>37681888wait... the dudes who made the g5 movie are not the ones making the spring special???
Oh look, YayPonies Discord squad have arrived.
>>37682106I was pretty sure Boulder was making Spring special. Maybe "44min" means extra-long episodes (Netflix equivalent of two-parters)?
>>37681888soooo what other 3d shows did this people before??????They will use the same assets from the movie? they will remade everything again????
>>37682106Correct. Boulder Media did the movie. Atomic Cartoons/Thunderbird will do the series and the specials.>>37682109I hope he don't listen do this and continue to post stuff.
>>37682118Is this a bad or good thing?
>>37682116>soooo what other 3d shows did this people before??????Nothing of note. Then again, it was a first hi-quality 3D for Boulder Media, too.>>37682106Hopefully Hasbro investor meetings will clarify.
>>37682121My guess is as good as yours anon. But i expect some downgrade, the movie's quality was very good, and the work/budget density is a lot higher on movies than in series, generally speaking. I want to see some budget presentation leaks, so we will have an idea on how much the series will cost.
>>37682130Well, full-blown simulated hair was confirmed recently, so "plastic hair" thing is not happening.
>>37682003That's very easily to screw up.Best case, and least likely, scenario, we get consistent quality.Most likely outcome, though? We start to see shit like what happened to Miraculous Ladybug S3.
>>37681888>>37681951>June4 months late. The fandom is dead.
>>37682139Dude, it literally happened in FiM (Boulder/Rainbow Roadtrip and DHX/Best Gift Ever).
>>37682151>JuneUh... No?>Thunderbird Corporate Presentation August 19th, 2021
>>37682151>>37682158what's supposed to happen in June/August?
>>37682167It's the date of publication of that PDF presentation, page of which is shown there: >>37681888
>>37682158>Thunderbird-Corporate-Presentation-June-4th-2021learn to read
>>37681493>it's not rare for hasbro have series finished early but doesn't release them because muh global toy distribution is not yet readythe G5 toys went up for sale like half a year before the movie releasedhasbro dont give a FUCK
>>37681944Real and homosexual
>>37682243>the G5 toys went up for sale like half a year before the movie releasednever saw g5 stuff in my country
>>37681888>22 minute episodes
>>37680932>Look at this obvious reference to your beloved TV show from better times? Isn't it nostalgic? Doesn't it make you want to consume our product?I fucking hate this timeline so fucking much. Nothing original is made anymore.
>>37681999>hopefully one of them will be EQGDangerously based
>>37682264Are you talking about G5 referencing FiM, or about FiM referencing Darkwing Duck?
>>37682273Maybe FiM s01e01-02 referencing pilot G1 special?
>>37682273I believe he's talking about the former.
>>37680932>>37679208>>37679206>This guy is trying to get fired or is an idiot by breaking his NDA.>These are part of a completely scrapped episode concept.>It's a marketing stunt.Take your pick folks.
>>37682130I suspect that movie budget is lower than it looks. It was the same case for 2017 movie, too.
>>37682243G5 series is still in production with low employees and the G5 toys sales is down, not up.
>>37682591Do you have proof for the latter
>>37682597Here's all you need to know: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkB3F4-NI8A
>>37682591Some of those toys are strange. Says ages 4 and up or something like that but comes with 25+ tiny accessories that could be easily swallowed by a kid or just lost.
>>37682816That's why it says says ages 4 and up, Anon. If you're older than 3-year-old, you're supposed to not swallow things.
>>37681888Dare i say at least one special is about our Royal Princess?
>>37681959Nah, bro. I was like you before G5 was released but now i can't imagine those characters reducing their expressions to static 2D models that either have sad, smiling or neutral face all the time. CGI gives them more variety like actual real life person
>>37682118What are other works made by Atomic Cartoons?
>>37682264Remember when S2 referenced Star Wars and Q from Star Trek? What a soulless show
Are we ever going to learn anything about writers and story editors for the series??
>>37682883I would guess one or two episodes will be written by G.M.Berrow.
Do you think brian goldner died of shame from the irony that in g5 media the ponies have 1-sided cutie marks and in the g5 merchandise they have both sides cutie marks it just shows how literally nobody in his company even knows each other exist
>>37683145>in the g5 merchandise they have both sides cutie marksNot in any of the official Merch by Hasbro.
>>37683145Cutiemarks seem like a such pointless thing to get butthurt about.
>>37683208Licensed merch is also official, just not made by Hasbro.
>>37682106>>37682113>>37682118Boulder is still working on G5 as well, they hire people for "CGI Ponies" every other month on their website.
>>37681941Why would Netflix the movie twice, it's more likely the two-parters as one episode each.
>>37683213why Boulder still is the project when they will not do the series neither the specials, what is their job after the g5 movie?
>>37682880The difference is from the very first episode G4 had a fleshed out world with its own lore, only occasionally making references outside of it, while G5 if you take out all the outside references there's practically nothing left.
>>37683228>take out all the outside references>everything's finelol
>>37682243>the G5 toys went up for sale like half a year before the movie releasednot in most of the world, that's only a US thing with MLP
>>37683226They're likely making Spring Special.
>>37683226>implying multiple companies can't work on a series at onceDid people forget the part where FIM also was more than just DHX?
>>37683226do you really think hasbro would buy a studio for it to not work on the franchise it was bought for anymore?
>>37679232At least mare do well was a play on words and rhyme of ne'er do well. I Don't have much hope for the series if 'stallion do well' is actually the best they can come up with.
>>37683362It's likely won't even be named, just a costume.
>>37683239>majority of the pegasus city and society ceases to exist.The phones count.
Is it possible that the Boulder-Atomic relationship is like DHX-Top Draw or are these really two studios working on separate parts of the show?>>37683391>Phones are a referenceSo from what level does technology count as a reference? Because most of the things in FiM were based on their human counterparts as well.
>>37683228G5 is literally the same world but in the future. Having modern technology IS the new take on the lore
>>37683408>Is it possible that the Boulder-Atomic relationship is like DHX-Top DrawConsidering Boulder still hired for 3D pone recently, yes.
>>37681888>42 is the number on the bottom right hand corner>Twilight's CM has 42 points>42 divided by 14 equals 3>half life 3 confirmed
>>37683408>>37683561Boulder isn’t working on the show or specials at all as far as we know.There was no instance of Boulder hiring for more 3D Pone.
>>37683636>There was no instance of Boulder hiring for more 3D Pone....they literally were in august, do you not follow their news?
>>3768362042 is also the number on Sunny's diary in concept arts.
>>37683653I only recall Atomic hiring specifically for pony. Boulder made one announcement they were looking for a 3D person for an “undisclosed project” that had a filler picture of Pony Life. Show me proof.
>>37683766It doesn’t even say pony, idiot.
>>37683780Because Hasbro has so many other franchises animated in 3D done by Boulder.
>>37683780it did in the job descriptions on their site, but it's been months so they are gone by now
>>37683804So the evidence is gone with the wind and I should just trust you bro?
>>37683808He's only talking about the series, not spring 2022 special.I distinctly remember that Boulder Media was working for the special. Yes, here it is, see my posts about it in the pic.
>>37679206>>37680932I find it incredibly weird that they decided to reference MMDW out of all the episodes. Although if they were simply going to rehash the episode, Hitch could have been the most likely candidate to play Dash's role since he's the one who was saving other ponies already, so I find it interesting that he's the one wearing the mask here.>inb4 the episode is the literal opposite of MMDW, and Hitch starts wearing the mask to save ponies because he's embarrassed of all the attention, and his friends convince him that he should be proud of being a heroMysterious Princess Tuna Do Well a cute.
>>37683880> Princess Tuna?
>>37683880>because he's embarrassed of all the attentionSeems out of character.
>>37683918sometimes I wish anons in mlp where a itty bitty more friendly (or just a bit less autistic), you know, like trying to follow the show's lessons and all of that...
>>37683873OK.Hope = building
>>37683995I didn't knew minions had official names, the other bid and crab have names too?
>>37683999It’s a great /mlp/ made name.
>>37683999I propose Princess Crabdance.Someone else come up with a sun pun.
>>37683999>>37684004It's actually a name made by the colleague of Imalou's who put her in.
>>37684171I was checking the archive, what Imalou said is that Celia Kaspar designed the seagull. The first person to use the name Princess Tuna was actually Biggus Dickus Anon.
>>37683995I dont think ponies eat canned tuna so I suppose they eat... canned algae?
>>37684321Seaweed is so fucking underrated in the western world
>>37680892You clearly didn't watch FiM either.
>>37683228>Yeah remember when The Empire Strikes Back was actually fucking garbage because it's nothing but callbacks to the original Star Wars?Doomfags this is your mindset.
>>37685246Is that fucking Sprout working as an employee at the pizza place?
>>37685246>>37685257PIZZA BOY SPOOT
>>37685246Depooty got demoted
>>37685246>Sprout's a wagie now
Remember that dim bulb anon who said sprout may never be seen again?
>>37685246holy shit is he going to leak the whole episode or something?
>>37685375Gonna to keep the leak tradition alive
>>37685273They can't leave the town without a sheriff. If hitch is playing stallion do well, sprout has to be the cop now.
>>37685366Is he the new Sunburst?
>>37685246sprout fucking btfo'd
>>37681888Best G5 news I've heard in fucking ages. I had zero hope because why give a fuck about low budget 3D shit in what would obviously be 11 minute shit. Seeing that they're following the FiM model again makes me happy. Maybe I can tolerate some ugly animation of the writing is good.
>>37685550did you forget that they have more guys working there than these two?
>>37685618>did you forget that they have more guys working there than these two?Who? Sprout was obviously lying, judging to Hitch's reaction. Or are you talking about Sprout's army/militia?
>>37685618Based on the movie it looked like there were only two ponies there. One sheriff one deputy.
The special must explain why Izzy and the princesses are now living in Maretime Bay.
>>37685669They won’t. Izzy, Zipp and Pipp are minor characters who will stay in their respective towns.
>>37685669Maybe due to new unification efforts new non-pony-type-specific settlements with mixed population will be established. They could call it "Ponyville" or something.
>>37685710They become species ambassadors .
>>37685246my tomato boi is alive!
>>37685695considering we already have a book where sunny and izzy visit birdlewood, it's pretty much safe to assume they are living together now
>>37685669Here's this bookhttps://www.harpercollins.com/products/my-little-pony-izzy-comes-home-hasbro
>>37685867That accounts for Izzy, but not the other two. the sisters were ran out of town perhaps
>>37683880>spoilerSpike? More like Bike, amirite?
>>37685923Yeah, likely to some degree. Haven, Zipp and Pipp might not be on the run anymore, but not in charge either, is my theory.
Atomic Cartoons freshly posted this new job listing called "Production Coordinator" for the G5 show.https://boards.greenhouse.io/atomiccartoons/jobs/4650986003
Maybe Maretime Bay doesn't even have a police anymore and had it abolished after the incident.
>>37686085Based Atomic Cartoons for not hiring faustfags
>>37685246Sprout becoming a wageslave is already a better start to a redemption than whatever the fuck Starlight got
>>37686140because thats what made fim appealing
>>37685669They don't need to. I can see it being like an anthology. The episodes don't always need to follow Sunny in Maretime Bay. Sometimes it takes place in Bridlewood or Zephyr Heights depending on who is being followed by the episode while other characters cold just be visitors. I prefer this than having a Twilight character be always the focus of everything. Also the train station could be repaired.
>>37685669Probably rebuilt Sunnys home to fit everyone.
>>37686394Anon, I do believe you’ve cracked the code with G5 POV and livings situations—I do so hope you’re correct.
Just build permanent portals to everywhere lol.
>>37686432finally, an orgy nest for everypony (and anon)
>>37686478Sunny’s optimism is basically an aphrodisiac.
>>37682273About Darkwing Duck referencing The Shadow.
>>37686394Twilight wasn't always the focus of everything, she was only the focus in episodes that were specifically about building her character.
>>37685246>"Sorry for cutting you off, but have you always been this whiney? Or am I realizing that just now?"Damn, Hitch is laying him out from under that mask!I wonder if the whole Stallion-Do-Well shtick for Hitch is him using the masquerade to serve Maretime Bay through actions he'd prefer to not be linked back to him as sheriff, and if the episode might be an allegory for community figures' privacy and/or anonymity if that's the case.
>>37687004(SDW) on the legend implies on a voice change when he is disguised. So yeah, at least some level of anonymity i think.
>>37685375This might not be an episode at all. If it was rejected he can just post it like Larson did with unused scripts
>>37687525>If it was rejected he can just post itOnly when NDA expires, or if he negotiated it specifically
Speaking of Hitch, in earlier version, he was stoked for unicorn disguise.
>>37686140Because the creator behind G5 is a NORMAL FUCKING PERSON.
>>37687793>Hitch's 'thing' in the show is that he likes wear costumes.>There will be an episode where he ends up wearing a frilly dress and says something like "You know, I don't hate this".Oh no.
>>37687840>Still wears a mustache
>>37687833Which creator, no one even knows who the definitive one creator is since it's a modern corpo mess where everyone and their alicorn's a producer role
>>37687881We know one of producers, art director, and storyboard supervisor.
>>37687881The guy who worked for Marvel, I can't remember his name. He behaved like a functioning human being during the AMA compared to everyone else in that disgusting meeting.
>>37687896Cort Lane, but "producer" is vague title.
>>37681888If this is posted on Netflix, then they'll just release the entire season in one day. Good binge
>>37687945Nah, just half-season1. It's planned by Hasbro that way already, as was shown in calendar2. Netflix dumps are usually 10+ episodes, not 20+ episodes.
>>37687945This is one of my worst fearsBut at the same time iirc more and more shows get the weekly release schedule z so not all hope is lost
>>37687840not in the Chinese version at least after the ban on feminine men >>37687896>who worked for MarvelEeeeeugh, nu-marvel... what AMA, it's on you tube?>>37687970Eh, this doesn't change too much, discussing episode by episode is kinda the thing...

>>37688231I liked the movie, hope they dont go full woke on the show
>>37688241>hope they dont go full woke on the showIt's Hasbro. They specifically released MLP in theaters in China and Russia, two most non-tolerant countries. Obviously they would want money from those countries.They did a good job at balancing USA's and China's needs for G5 movie, I assume it will continue.
>>37687840>ywn fuck hitch while he wears a frilly dress
>>37688284this is making me feel things...I DON'T LIKE THAT THIS IS MAKING ME FEEL THINGS
>>37685246Sprout and pizza were always meant for each other.
>>37688253I know, I know, but they can always edit stuff for those markets, the danger will be always there, for now I will give it an opportunity >>37688339olives, tomato, mushrooms and a green leaf thing, not the most tasty pizza but I suppose it's pony diet approved
>>37688367looks like basil and also I would eat the fuck outta that veggie pizza
>>37688456yeah it's difficult to make me hate pizza, I'm a slut for that shit
>>37681544G5 is sluttier from the get go, it's quite funny how prudent g4 is going to look comparatively
>>37687980It will probably get a pass in China because Hitch is a horse, not a man.
>>37688530Y'know, for a country that hates gays... they're pretty gay themselves.
>>37681347I think it could be more like a temporary power-up. That saifd, she MIGHT already have alicorn magic inside her, and she MIGHT fully turn into an alicorn eventually.
>>37687980China won't air it anyway. They just banned MLP in their latest sweep of "problematic/subversive content".I feel bad for our Chinese fandom cousins.https://www.businessinsider.com/china-bans-violent-vulgar-cartoons-anime-entertainment-industry-crackdown-2021-9?op=1&r=US&IR=T>This isn't the first time that a Chinese authority has tried to discourage the viewing of certain children's TV shows due to violence.>In April, the Jiangsu Consumer Council announced that 21 children's cartoons, including "Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures" and "My Little Pony," weren't appropriate for kids.
>>37688697>Jiangsu Consumer Council is a bunch of Karen moms. The government couldn't give a flying fuck about them.
>>37688924Then the government will fall.
>>37688697They also want to ban all private news service. https://www.organiser.org/india-news/china-aims-to-ban-private-companies-from-broadcasting-news-6276.htmlWon't be long before they ban all private media, period.
>>37688284I want to fuck that feminine stallion.
>>37689309Even if he wears a mustache? His disguises are never complete without a mustache.
>>37689346I'd just pick it off with my teeth and swallow it before he can do anything, only then commencing the sex to disorient him which would lead to forget he had a moustache in the first place. Subtle, yet forced and long-term feminization would come afterwards
>>37688697they'll figure out a workaround, dont worry about it
>>37679206>>37680932>>37685246Now the question remains: Kevin Conroy impression or Christian Bale impression?
>>37691355They better fucking hire Kevin Conroy for Hitch's inner monologue or I with shart my soul.
>>37688593The only one hating gays is Xi because they make him have funny feelings.
>>37688697They are banning any "western influences" in general, but most people know how to use a VPN anyways so it doesn't matter much.
>>37688697>China just banned MLPNo, it didn't, retard.
>>37686605Hey, don't blame Darkwing Duck, he's a better The Shadow clone than Batman is
>>37685246So he's not gonna stay as a deputy? Shame, it would have made for a good character arc for him to slowly become more and more worthy of becoming a sheriff till' he eventually is entrusted with the role.
>>37686140It'll probably lead to him becoming bitter and fall into some evil scheme.If we're luck, he'll see the error of his ways during or right after that.
>>37693573Why does he need to work? His family is rich. I didn't even get why he was wasting his time as deputy in the first place. Was being sheriff THAT important to him?
>>37693587Because his mother encouraged him to take that position. Pizza boy most likely his mother's doing, too.
>>37681959Literally everything but the ponies themselves is better in 3D.
>>37693630They should've put 2D ponies into 3D backgrounds like Gumball.
>>37693630But 3D is more expensive. Which would lead to less exploration episodes per season.
>>37693639>like GumballI think you mean "like 2017 Movie"
>>37693597She could have just given him a job at her company.
>>37693644She knows that it wouldn't be productive for anybody.
>>37693650I think if Phyllis had her way, she would appoint her son as a company manager just through sheer nepotism. And who's to say she hasn't tried that yet but Sprout refused becausr he wanted to be sheriff. So is he coddled by his mom or does she not care about him? Dumb kid's just following his dream but life isn't kind.
>>37693660He's kinda strange. He have zero ambition by default, but when he's slightly pushed towards it, it quickly snowballs and he's completely blinded by his power trip and can't stop.
>>37693644You mean the company that's about to either fail or go towards complete reconversion because its entire business model and services are built around a pervasive fear of the other that's now completely extinct?
>>37693749There was an idea that they switch over to fear dragons and other non-ponies.
>>37693749They start selling the pegasus phones. Canterlogic is a parody of tech companies like Apple or Google.
>>37693664Actually he did have an ambition. He wanted to be sheriff since he was a child. But Hitch took it away from him. Not to mention Sprout is a terrible sheriff so even if Hitch wasn't there, it could still have been another pony. Movie never mentions why Sprout's motivation is to be sheriff.
>>37693772I think it's pretty obvious. He wants power to abuse power and make himself feel powerful, while Hitch wants to keep the peace and needs power to do it. It's clear Sprout has a lot of wrong ideas on how to get respect. He thinks power gets you respect, while in reality it's competence.
>>37693766"Pega-Periscope Goggles" is basically VR goggles.
>>37693772He had a dream to be sheriff, but you can hardly call it an ambition, considering he does nothing to accomplish that: not positive actions (earning respect of community), not negative actions (getting rid of Hitch).
>>37693915I'm sure the series will tackle his back story. Why did Hitch become sheriff? Did Hitch want to be sheriff? What does a pony need to do to be sheriff? I'm asuming its done through towns folk nominations. Did Sprout compete against Hitch in earning the title of sheriff? Why was Hitch chosen and not Sprout? But the biggest question is why does Sprout want to be sheriff so badly? I bet Hitch felt bad for him so he appointed Sprout as deputy.
>>37693778Even when he was a foal, he wanted to be sheriff. It was at the very start of the movie. I doubt power and respect was that kid's motivation. He probably doesn't even know what those mean yet.
>>37693946It's an generic child goal, like a fireman or cosmonaut. Doesn't mean anything.
>>37693915That's because he's a twat who wants everything served on a sliver platter for him.
>>37693772He didn't seem to mind following Hitch's orders at the beginning, except when he was too scared
>>37687945It will be pretty sad. I loved watching the stream here in /mlp/ with (you) guys every Saturday, cancerous american commercials and all, the chat always makes it funny and it sparked some nice show discussion. Having everything released at the same time will kind of kill that mood.
>>37694062This. I'm tired of this soulless digital world that hits you in the face with endless stream of content not giving a fucking second to take a breath.
>>37694069Aren't torrents and DVDs exactly the same?
>>37693915Because there wasn't enough screentime for that.
>>37694069I love it, but that's because I give no shit about starting a fandom out of it. I don't understand the retards at Netflix who WANT a fandom, but they don't understand the basic things of a fandom. You need to feed them in order to keep the fire alive. Having all the episodes dumped is exactly breeding grounds for a bandwagon jumper who just marathons/speedruns through everything.
>>37694062>>37694069>>37694214Consumers feel strung along paying for a service for months when they can have their show in one day. We live in a normalfag dominated world, who like to watch Netflix for 3 hours with their family or gfbf on weekends or a parent that just wants to hit play and let the entirety of Babby TV run through, not fandom participation.
>>37694214I don't give 3 fucks about starting a new fandom out of it either, I'll just miss the "watching an episode for the first time" streams.
>>37679344Fuck off D*buc
>>37694242>Fuck off Dubucftfy
>>37693946 >>37693965Dominance and hierarchy is not something you have to learn from society. It's a the core of us. Even lobsters have this instinct.>Don't worry mommy, when I become sheriff I'll keep everypony in line. This is about power.>>37693965>fireman, cosmonautThese common choices are picked not because of the tasks preformed by those professions, but but because of how they are seen. Heroes. When boomers were kids they wanted to be cosmonauts (most common answer at the time) cause that is what they saw on TV with millions of other people. Nowadays most common answer is not cosmonaut, but "Livestreamer" – for the same reason. Popularity.
>>37695977>This is about power.You're thinking too hard. Dude wants to be a small town cop when he grows up. Pretty low ball dream for a little kid that supposedly wants power.
>>37696156>when I become sheriff I'll keep everypony in lineAnon, this line is on the nose. He’s zeroing in on the power part, not something more noble.
>>37696235Well, keeping people in line is what a sheriff does. What else was he supposed to say?
>>376936413D is cheaper than 2D for long-running series, it only has a higher startup cost.
>>37692813>not knowing China has been censoring MLP for years over "problematic views" just like any other media
>>37694241>I'll just miss the "watching an episode for the first time" streams.Pretty much all Hasbro series for Netflix have a 1 episode per week release.
>"G5 leak">it's nothing
>>37696248Which sheriff would you prefer:>a) one that wants power and exert it, excused by his position>b) one that seeks to safeguard his community and uphold the lawMaybe even easier: which firefighter you want:>a) one that desires admiration and wants to be a hero>b) one that wants to save livesCorrect answer to both probably is: the one that gets the job done by being competent. Your best bet is going with b). We can see multiple times that Sprout is not competent at all, but cowardly and lazy. But oh boy he's ready to cash in on his sheriff status with the mares, without doing any of the work. He wants power, but for himself, not to complete his tasks. These he wants to avoid.
>>37696712>cash in on his sheriff status with the maresHe was a child when he wanted to be sheriff. I'd be more convinced if he wanted to be sheriff because his father was the sheriff at the time instead of vilifying an innocent child.
>>37696735his mother raised him like a spoiled brat and that's exactly how he turned outsimple as
What are the chances that the actual TV show animators will NOT do magnet-hooves? Ponies just holding shit like that is a gear-grinder.
>>37696743And paedos were diddl’d as kids. No excuse.
>>37696743Ponies are inately good. Just like people. At least the movie showed that with the scene where Sprout tried to reach for the unicorn cupcake but was denied by Phyllis. Sprout wasn't a bad kid. Its why the opening scene was with him, Sunny and Hitch. If he swapped parents with Sunny, Sprout would be the one running off with Izzy to Zephyr Heights while Sunny would be the one ridding the giant robot.
>>37696768 >>37696743 >>37696735I am not trying to say Sprout was bad or evil as a kid. Not even as an adult. He's just a very misguided guy. It's obvious his relationship with his mom is not healthy. It's simplistic to just call someone evil. There are reasons for patterns of behaviour. Sprout needs help. He needs a male mentor. But he didn't appreciate Hitch. And Hitch didn't seem to have much trust or patience with him. Hitch ain't perfect either, he failed to see that Sprout needs help and can't handle power responsibly, but he's a much better person.I hope they won't make Sprout a loser to have some gags in the background.
>>37695977>I know I am homeless now but look at that face... I can't be mad at that
>>37696768>Ponies are inately good. Just like people.>people>inately good.I wish I could live in your world
>>37697048She lives with Hitch now.
>>37696676Every time you feature a new location, there will be "startup cost" for that location. This is what I'm talking about. It's not really an exploration is they explore recycled locations.
>>37697048When they got their magic in the movie, it showed the unicorns using magic to fix the town. In the series, the light house will already be fixed like it was never damaged at all.
>>37696768Uh, no? Ponies aren't freely interchangeable. Harry Potter grew up in abusive household (not as abusive as in fanfics, but his canon childhood is still abusive). And he didn't become negative character despite it.
>>37697153You cannot fix historical documents and memorabilia of her father with simple telekinesis.
>>37697165Sunny and Sprout parodies the concept creation between Twilight and (boy)Trixie during the Faust era of gen4's early conception. Trixie was supposed to be a version of Twilight but instead of everything going right in her life, everything went wrong. This is a play on nature vs nurture. If Twilight and Trixie swapped childhoods, Trixie would be Celestia's student sent to Canterlot to study friendship while Twilight would be a hobo.
>>37697168Spell of reconstitution.
>>37697304>Sunny the Daddy's girl and Sprout with a dead mom.
>>37697168that will be a big fuck up if all those ancient stuff gets destroyed
>>37697310No such thing. G5 unicorns can only do Telekinesis. Unless there's some unicorn/pegasus/earth pony whose talent is mending, then they can use their magic to mend stuff.
>>37697326More like Sprout would be Argyle's son and Sunny would be Phyllis daughter.
>>37697390Movie already implied other races believed unicorns shoot horn lasers, read minds, fry brains. Izzy can see aura. They can do more than float things. The series will have an episode set in Bridlewood where the unicorns relearn their spells from old books lying around.
>>37697438I dunno why you insist on that. Power-creep of unicorns was a real problem in laters seasons. Originally G4 unicorns were supposed to have only telekinesis and one spell connected to their talent. In later seasons, Twilight-exclusive spells were used by regular unicorns left and right. While Earth Ponies were completely neglected, and pegasi stagnated. Power rebalace is the one thing I expect from G5. Active magic for Earth Ponies plus Talent Magic for all three tribes.>Izzy can see aura.That's her talent.
Two new storyboards, the old ones were removed (?)
Laser tag, baby!
>>37697756>>37697759Zephyr Heights mega arcade?
>>37697541>That's her talent.I think all the unicorns can see luminessence. They believed that pegasi can steal their luminessence. This was something the whole tribe believed, not just Izzy. Although it would be cool if she was the only one.
>>37697759>royal bond Zipp/Pipp episode confirmed
>>37697756>>37697759I wonder how much the prejudice between the three tribes would be referenced.
>>37697759seems like Zipp Storm is going to take Laser Tag to seriously and cause tensionor the title implies a rift between the sisters
>>37697759Damn, he really is going to leak the whole series.
>>37697756>heart and styleSo, how big are the chances of Pipp getting Hitch'd?
>>37697756So I guess those small interactions from the movie might be expanded into a relationship. I mean for god's sake look at Hitch's eyes!
>>37697756No Hitch. Bad ending. You want the childhood sweetheart. Not the e-thot.
>>37697759will Zipp be artistically super competitive like Dash?>>37697756Hitch looks handsome, they both make a pair of beauties
>>37697905But anon, the childhood friend doesn't have the biggest ass. It's almost a futile effort at that point.
>>37697964Besides all main ponies already spoiled. Hitch, Sprout, Izzy, Zipp, Pipp. No Sunny. I guess she's not in the series.
>>37697973Hasbro couldn't decide whether or not Sunny should be an alicorn permanently, so they simply removed her from the show.
>>37697964I think Pipp is really gonna be the "biggest ass" in an interedting way. She was willing to keep the lie going just so she can keep living as royalty and do concerts about her fakeness. And people thought Sprout was bad. I wonder how many episodes she'll have selling out her friends for her own gain.
>>37698027I bet you thought Pinkie was evil manipulator in Griffon the Brush Off
>>37698027I kinda prefer that, once all the characters learned their friendship lessons they turn out boring, I like imperfect characters, I like to see how they fuck themselves with their own personalty and end in messes, not sure if I am the only one feeling that
>>37697756Pitch canon? Jay must be creaming himself at the news.
>>37697759Isn't it a bit TOO detailed for a simple storyboard? Are you sure this person is legit?
>>37698131If they're not, they've really squandered their opportunity to create drama with such safe, major-spoiler free images, which is the only reason I can think of to fake something like this.
Completely unrelated to the series because these are actually from the movie, but I guess anyone who cares about this is probably in this thread.The official VK of MLP in Russia posted a few promotional images, I think some of them are slightly better quality than the ones we had before. Or at least pic related is bigger than the version I had seen before.vk DOT com SLASH album-57324365_222214627For some reason a few of them had the wrong colors, I fixed those with the method described in >>37178037, I zipped them all, and here they are.https://u.smutty.horse/mdrcqwjvtkb.zip
Will we ever see Queen Chrysalis in G5's quality?
>>37698131All their boards are detailed, which is odd since storyboards usually don't have this much shading and coloring. For now I believe they're legit though because I can't imagine why someone would put so much effort into faking all this.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1FGBF_GRL8
>>37698198>theyIt's a man, nigger.
Any animation folk here? Can you elaborate if colored and shaded storyboard-like images like this would ever exist during production?Digged through recently published ANG storyboards, this is the most details I see.
>>37698169Thanks anon, russian sunny looked pretty.
>>37698219>wrong CMYK to RGB conversion>prettyFor a Yayponies color correcter fag maybe.
>>37698131I don't think there's a lot of detail. Its digitally drawn so they just add to it over time to convey the message on how they want the scene animated to the actual animation team. I mean the effects look simple enough. You can do it in a few minutes with a drawing tablet and something like gimp.
>>37698233Usually storyboarders have to draw a LOT of images in very short amount of time. I guess he was given more time than usual for some reason?
>>37697756I guess you could call this ship "Pitch-Perfect".
>>37697756>>37697759Why are so many reactions to this about shipping? Do you honestly believe that? Have you not watched G4, and do you really thing they’d fuck up this new cast with trite dynamic ruining shit like that, when they instead have the fabulous opportunity to show boys and girls can be close friends?
>>37697756There seemed to be some moments in the film that hinted at a possible dynamic, but I didn't expect them to expand on it
>>37697756>Worst girl win againJust like my animes!!!! Childhood friend BTFO
>>37698238One person didn't just do the story board. Its digital now. A basic sketch is done. Its shown to someone else. That someone else adds stuff like character direction, composition, camera panning, etc. Its brought back to the first guy. First guy adds more stuff. Basically creative people bouncing ideas. This just shows the g5 series has a lot of thought put into its production. Not some single pass story board like most CN shows like Steven Universe or whatever.
>>37687840Hopefully not anon, since he seemed so peeved at having to wear girly makeup in the movie. I think sadistic and insecure writers usually prefer to emasculate chads like Hitch by having it be unpleasant for them. With all that being said, most writers don't care about consistency either.
>>37696855Sprout is what unconditional support does to a child.I'm not saying you shouldn't support your children, they need love and support. However, you also need to set boundaries. Sprout's mother failed in this regard.I truly believe Sprout can be helped.
>>37698446Because it looks like shipping. They chose to leak this on purpose. I think its a song scene. Watch as the final product actually shows all characters singing while all wearing that strange costume.
>>37681944>>37682246What a guy!
>>37679528Uh oh. Someone's butthurt
>>37680048I can tell you something she's afraid of.
>>37697756Good to see Pipp getting focus although i doubt she will end up with Hitch.Hitch is going to interact with all of mane4 so he probably going to get a more spicy moments with Sunny or Zipp
>>37698495You will never achieve anything higher than writing for Johnny Test, Josh. Fuck off.
>>37698490>Because it looks like shippingFucking how? I feel like I’m on Twitter here. In fact, I checked Twitter, and the reactions are identical: everyone thinks it’s shipping. It’s a sister fight episode, and Izzy is on Zipp’s team for laser tag and Hitch is on Pipp’s team, because we need varying pair-ups between the cast.>>37697898>>37697905>>37697929>>37697942>>37698108>>37698256Weirdos.
>>37698490>two characters standing next to each other>looks like shippingShipfags are fucking delusional.
>>37698517>he probably going to get a more spicy moments with Sunny or ZippCope, Pipp already won.
>>37698526Bruh, FlutterMac was the biggest Fluttershy ship and they didn't even talked with eachother until Season 4
>>37698527Arrest, pipp is just another backgroudn pony.
>>37698446Shipping is about the fandom, not about canon. Do you really think Matilda and Cranky as shipping? No.More interactions in canon -> more fan-shipping. This is an interaction. Honestly, it's not that hard.
>>37698527>she already won>based on two single animation board pictures>out of 23 episodes and 4 specials>where it might not even be a storyboard used for the series>and even then they just stand next to eachtoherok schizo
>>37698527Zipp won, shipfag. Do you see Izzy blushing at Zipp? She’s obviously in love with her.
>>37698523Did you see the latest census threads? The board is infested with social media children. The cancer you witness ITT isn't surprising at all.
>>37698523>checked Twitter, and the reactions are identical: everyone thinks it’s shippingThat answers your question. When you're trying to promote something, you do what makes the most buzz. The scene could just be a few seconds. Like I said, once the final product is made, all characters could be participating in it. They deliberately chose to leak this few second scene because it looks like shipping. And if it looks like shipping, it makes a lot of buzz. Its all maketing 101. You just show the shiney parts that turn heads.
>>37698555This guy does not even have LinkedIn profile lol. None of this confirmed.
>>37698519Lotta anger over a cartoon. Do you need to have a sit down and sort through your personal issues
>>37698555Izzy with a ladybug was the least sensational thing they could have chosen.
>>37698527Anyone who ships Hitch with Pipp probably hates Hitch. Why would anyone ship him with the girl that probably sells jars of her bath water online?
>>37697756>heart and style>Pipp singing as Hitch walks alongside herI'm feeling an episode centered on their music commonality~>>37697786It's looking like the series will have plenty of episodes about the bonds between the Mane Five, and I couldn't be happier!
>>37698565We're here to listen if you need to vent.You seem to have a lot of pent up aggression. It'll feel good to vent. Get it all off your chest. You'll feel better for it
>>37698555It doesnt even look like shipping. Pipp just look smug and Hitch like he is being amused by her overconfidence. People are just autistic
>>37698573Hitch is gay anyway. There is no chance he will turn out to be straight on Netflix
>>37697898>>37697929>>37698527>>37698543>ignoring the obvious harem endingplebs
>>37698523>Izzy is on Zipp’s team for laser tag and Hitch is on Pipp’s teamSunny's left out. This happens with an uneven number of friends. I guess she's hanging out with Sprout now.
>>37698601>Sunny's left out.Sunny is an alicorn princess now. She have important alicorn princess thing to do
>>37698601Sunny is taking a hike, like Argyle.
>>37688497>We'll fake a phony protrusion to make a bony illusion>It's not the perfect solution, but the world's not big on inclusionWonder why they cut that part.
>>37698614So Sunny is a Dilf chaser?
>>37698616What? I mean she’s departed for pony paradise.
>>37696676In PonyCon Holland panel it was mentioned that ponies didn't have any clothes specifically because they didn't have enough budget for it: it would take entire new department to do it.In 2D, creators could add clothes freely.
>>37698640The series is starting to sound more and more expensive. Imagine weather changes like snow or rain. Rain means water animation. Wet manes. Water interactions and effects are really hard on 3d to get right.
>>37698218It's common for series where you have more production time and/or you want to make sure the animators get the desired colors right.
>>37698679they are just talking, this isn't the new Fluttercord
>>37698679This is our fault for not giving enough money in her only fans...
>>37698679>>37698710The Mane Five come with free shipping in a bundle together; we've already been over this.
>>37698794Izzy is doing this face
>>37698218Yes. It's common.Depends on how rushed is production tho, depends on the artist. The rule is always to make it clear as possible, in the given time frame.
>>37698585the most correct answer of all
>>37698614faking her death for not paying the bills?>>37698616yes, I think it's as obvious as Sprout fucking his mother and Hitch spending too much time on ranches and pet stores
>>37697759Ah, so they're jumping on another Netflix Trend. This should be fun!Sprout's gonna die first.
>>37698538>none are realok psycho
>>37699791you are not going to hurt my tomato boi
>>37700127I'm sorry Anon, but he's getting pureed.
>>37699791I'm positively sure that the squid thing didn't invent laser tag battles. I can remember several cartoons that featured laser tag scenes long before that show.
guns are canon in equestria I guess
>>37698218Animation major here, have worked on several films. Absolutely not. We never have color on storyboards unless absolutely needed. It’s only needed for items or characters that look the same (ie: twins). This is back practice in general. Shading, coloring etc takes up too much time, and most storyboards are supposed to be quickly made and often thrown out.
>>37700519lasers are, but not necessarily guns
>>37697759I can't wait for this episode
>>37700807It would be hilarious if there were a wave of counterfeit G5 storyboards released over the coming year. Seems like a low barrier to entry.
