"Cullen says he was always deeply invested in telling Sunny’s story and found inspiration in the actions
of young people around the world who are making a difference in their communities. “What happens to
a character like Sunny who, deep in her heart, believes that there’s something wrong with her world
and no one else believes her?” he says. “What does it take for a character like that to not just say that
there’s something wrong, but to go out and do something about it? Greta Thunberg kept coming back
to us as an inspiration because she went from being a child protesting at her school to crossing the
Atlantic Ocean and addressing a room of the world’s most powerful people. To me, that was an
interesting story to tell because it is hard for people to go out and speak their truth."

"The challenge became how to maintain some continuation of the past while being set hundreds of
years later. One of the ways Mayer and his team achieved this was to keep some of the key attributes
of the places fans loved from past stories. “Maretime Bay has some elements from Ponyville. You can
see some design details like the window shapes that we brought from Ponyville,” he explains. “We
thought that over time they moved to the coast, but they kept some of the design from the city.
Bridlewood is an evolution of Everfree Forest from ‘Friendship is Magic,’ especially when it came to the
shape of the trees. Zephyr Heights comes from Cloudsdale. Now that the magic has gone, they can’t
live in the clouds anymore so the next place they could go were the mountains above the clouds. They
still keep the same feeling in the clouds even though they’re now grounded since they can’t fly.”
Another way to pay homage to the past was to infuse the film with enough easter eggs that fans could
watch the film over and over again, never ceasing to discover new things that relate to both the current
and previous ponies. “I think the biggest ones were in Sunny’s house,” Mayer reveals. “We decided to
put a huge amount of easter eggs in there because we thought of her father Argyle as an Indiana Jones
kind of guy, an archaeologist or a professor. He collected things that he had found over the years so his
office is full of easter eggs. "

At the beginning of “Gonna Be My Day,” Sunny passes over a bridge that reads “3.89” which is a
completely accurate measurement. The tunnel is exactly 3 meters and 89 centimeters high.
8. One of the film’s scared yelling ponies is played by Heather Langenkamp Anderson, who starred in
“Nightmare in Elm Street” and is known as one of horror’s most famous scream queens.
9. When Sunny refers to her “142 Questions for a Unicorn,” the filmmakers can confirm that they did,
in fact, write all 142 questions
>>
Sunny’s drawing in the film that she makes with Argyle is based on a sketch created by the son of
director José Ucha. He completed the picture in pencil and the designers colored over the top.
He’s even credited at the end of the movie. “There are three moments in the movie when that
appears and each time I get a little emotional,” admits Ucha.

MLP g5 really would've been better without any connection to g4. It'd make the connection to the two less jarring. They barely feel related at all, and if they just did away with it, then g5 would be more commendable for trying to hold on its own.

Actually based. It means that there isn't messaging either. If there's no racism, there's no need to preach. If there's no sexism, there's no reason to show me too and strong independence while also needing men to step up. Etc. Etc. It is no shit based to not have these issues in the universe. Because fuck making Equestria just earth and earth problems with ponies. It's old, preachy, tired, and I am fucking ready to move past all the woke media.

I thought, ‘Wow, you don’t expect that from a pony movie!’ We are telling the story of how it comes full circle and gets back to a super cute place where they love each other as they should because it’s My Little Pony.”

Now listen here, buster. Do you see the title of G4? It's about friendship and kindness. It is clearly going to have some generic message about 'respecting people's differences' and 'don't be mean to those who are different'.

Yes some of it was corny but so what? I'll be generous and assume people resorting to hyperbole about either G4 or G5 just really really hated it, and were pretending to have these opinions instead because they want an excuse to hate a kids' cartoon that much.

The reason it worked is because they made their own forms of prejudice up to serve as stand-ins to make kids think about things and help them grow up a bit nicer, rather than direct references. Because it was a cartoon, not Mr Rogers. And they were more show don't tell. They showed the ponies learning to be nice and shit, rather than a lecture, and they weren't on the nose.

So is it political?

It's a matter of degree, and /pol/ posters WERE generally (not all of them tho) reading too far into it, saying it was either

1. woke nonsense because how dare writers consider using personal experiences to make something different, and they can't be bothered to tell the difference between an abstract, generic analogue at its most basic and something like Captain Planet and its cheesy, on the nose environmentalism, calling it propaganda, when it isn't, though it does feel at times like propaganda, just shit hamfistedwriting. Here they meant activist material with an attempt to convince you of something, literally just propaganda in the original sense. Nothing too out there, just presumptuous. THAT can be reasonable in some circumstances.

Remember that I said that, okay?

2. But there are quite a few /pol/tards who say propaganda, meaning something much more sinister. Be aware of that. They were saying it's propaganda based on a lie with some secret alterior motive like grooming, racial destruction and even ze Juden.

Just because the show says 'it's okay to be different!' and has Big Mac run around in a dress pretending to be apple bloom's sister doesn't mean it's trying to say 1. 'use womxn or you're a bigot!' or 2. 'grooming propaganda' if you're really out there.

Just because they put more non pony characters in to explore things like culture clash in a kid friendly way doesn't mean it's 1. intending to wax lyrical about diversity in a hamfisted manner or worse 2. be 'anti white propaganda' or whatever.

Same with G5.
Might as well say that the ponies living separately from each other isn't just a generic thing about tolerance and being nice to different people, but is 1. going to try and be East Is East but come across as patronizing as it's trying to fit it all into a kid's cartoon, or worse 2. is trying to promote miscegenation with the purpose of wiping out white people.

1.is the fox news take, 2. is the stormfront take

And for fairness, people saying it's not antiracist enough, and it's just colourblind yadda yadda, therefore it SUCKS and it's still racist, are being just as kneejerk. The assume the writer has a woke intent, just like these examples above, but is lazy.

They write pseudoacademic pieces on how shit like Dr Seuss' stories about tolerance weren't anti racist enough e.g. the Sneetches, they're just 'moderate liberal drivel' and harp on like they're Malcolm X when really they're just Dewey Jenkins.

TLDR they jump to conclusions and come up with mental gymnastics just like that either cause they're nuts or just hate something for personal reasons and feel the need to give themselves an excuse instead of just saying they hate it.

Don't be like that. Save yourself a migraine.
This might seem like a major lecture, but it's because you bastards are a-okay and I care about you getting too tied up in knots.

i think we can all agree that it's nevertheless intriguing that they found greta to use as ain inspiration for something, right? Purely just as a thing to observe, academically.

But that said I fail to see the problem here - it's not like they put loads of envirnomental messages in it all hamfisted, was it? Like, Captain Planet with ponies. And just as well because it would be hamfisted. You'd need a Fluttershy for them to fit in without hamfisting, and Hitch is not the same, just because he can talk to seagulls.

In high quality, consistent, and meticulously crafted scripts.

If you don't have a bulletproof story with understandable characters who are well rounded and believable, in a world that is well thought out and makes sense on scrutiny, and who weaves that message in so that it never grinds it to halt, then nobody will complain. Not only will the work stand up on its own, people will actually respect you enough to maybe listen to that exploration. If the characters are too basic or poorly written, the plots too dumbed down, the world nonsensical, then you're just wasting everyone's time. You're wasting the time of the people who want entertainment, because you're making it about an opinion people don't care to see. You're wasting your own time because there will never be an impact, it'll have all the lasting ability of a random tiktok. You're even wasting the time of the people who agree with you, since you're just preaching something they already thought without giving them anything more than "Yes you are right, now cheer for me."

If you're not working to make your characters both entertaining and memorable, why would we respect you when you used them for a mouthpiece? If you constantly have to tell people not to think too hard or question how your world works, why would anyone care what you think of the real and much more complex one they live in? If your story can't stand up on its own, then anyone who tries to take a lesson from it is doomed to fall apart. But you knew that, it's been proven time and time again that actual quality rarely gets these sorts of criticisms, and they almost never last. But preaching in a bog standard message is the easier of the two, and it's something people who don't have the talent and aren't willing to actually put in the work to make their story work cling to like a lifejacket. Who cares if people point out your characters are basic, your world doesn't make sense, and your story falls apart if you think about it, the story is "Saying something important". If it was actually important, they'd work until there isn't a single thing people might think about save the story in front of them and take away from it, but they know the truth.

The reason people keep saying to get rid of that is because nobody respects your shitty story enough to care about it. Fix that first, if you can.

What is "actually important"?
If you (or more rather a normie) gave this question to the G5 production crew, I'm sure they would say the most important thing is to tell an immersive, entertaining story.
Yet this is not what we actually get.
And the reason why is revealed immediately by this leaked document.
>“This is a universe without sexism, racism, or homophobia. It’s an idyllic society. With pastel-colored ponies, everyone is coming together and celebrating their uniqueness and their differences. My Little Pony has stood for friendship and inclusion since the very beginning.”
First direct quote of the doc, first page. Funny how when these people address their own class, what is "actually important" has nothing to do with story.
And so, while you are right on all points on strong story --> lasting impactful messaging, it is irrelevant, because what is "actually important" to the MLP brand is signaling loyalty to the ruling regime.
This also explains why we see more franchise "reboots" than ever before. Attach your signaling to a story that already exists. Unlikely that we see any more good original stories from our corporate entertainment giants, at least in their current form.
Summary: Corporate storytelling is and will remain fake and gay for the foreseeable future, pic related.

>>39586990
They settings in G5 aren't as bad as they could be. But they pale in comparison to G4 settings, except for some G4 locations like Las Pegasus that tried too hard to be referential. And of course G4 developed many more locations than G5 which can't seem to be assed to do anything outside of the three main locations + the villain castle. The G5 world is diminutive compared to G4 and the fantasy element suffers greatly from it. Hell G4 even had dreamwalking episodes and you know the G5 staff isn't driven enough to pull settings like that off.

Signaling for regime loyalty was also true in the 2000's and 2010's. What's really happening is that there are people working for these corpos who do want to tell stories that they think are good, but intelligence and creativity is dropping, so the odds of the manifestation of high quality art drops as time progresses. Couple this with ethnic nepotism making it harder and harder for highly creative Europeans to get their ideas produced and you have the state of corporate entertainment media today.

Maretime Bay is nice, but I want to see more of the actual town. So far we've only gotten a glimpse of things and the residents. What G5's settings problem is isn't the fact there's lack of more locations, its the fact there hasnt been enough to flesh out the locations at all, more zero development locations would just repeat the main issue and feel cardboard flat like EQGs shitty settings.

G4 had this problem with Cloudsdale being really halfassed and vague only touching on it a few times, but G4 fleshed out ponyville more than G5 has with Maretime bay. It's easy to do, with what how much concept art they had started with imo. It doesn't take much to get the ball rolling but they've barely expanded on anything for now. AI does a better job at this then the diversity quota team

That reminds me of a whitepill. The fact that more and more people are able to perceive the thought control tactics of university + mass media + fed bureaucracy complex means that the regime is losing their ability to wield these tactics effectively. After all perfect thought control is imperceptible to the victim. No doubt the IQ/creativity drought is hitting the regime's new guard as well, and faster than other organizations in the West. That's Bioleninism for you.
Not that gives me hope for better corporate storytelling in time for say, a G6. The new guard will drive Hasbro into bankruptcy before that happens, unless there is by some miracle a counter-infiltration into their entertainment divisions by creative Anon-adjacent types.

>>39588583
As >>39589451 said vision has left the G5 team.
>how much concept art they had started with imo
Wasn't even aware of this art but now seeing >>39591563 this proves my point. That concept art is oozing with character possibilities. But no, the G5 production team chose to develop pony Greta Thunberg LMAO.

To be honest, it's mainly the lower quality animations that I find jarring. The lighting is just a nice to have. But yes, I also find the general theme of MYM just weaker.

"Cullen says he was always deeply invested in telling Sunny’s story and found inspiration in the actions
of young people around the world who are making a difference in their communities. “What happens to
a character like Sunny who, deep in her heart, believes that there’s something wrong with her world
and no one else believes her?” he says. “What does it take for a character like that to not just say that
there’s something wrong, but to go out and do something about it? Greta Thunberg kept coming back
to us as an inspiration because she went from being a child protesting at her school to crossing the
Atlantic Ocean and addressing a room of the world’s most powerful people. To me, that was an
interesting story to tell because it is hard for people to go out and speak their truth."
