MLP: The Movie Discussion Thread
« on: September 12, 2017, 10:06:05 PM »
Hey folks! Now that the FIM subforum is gone it's time to start our integration into the corral. I think the best way to start is with the MLP Movie, which is only a few weeks away!!

Are you excited for the movie? Skeptical? Want to know what's going on but not sure if you'd like to go see it? Come share your thoughts!

I've personally dug up everyyyy little bit of info I could on the film since the very start. Before the end of the FIM Forum, the enitre plot had practically been uncovered! I will be adding spoilers to this thread, but I'll be keeping everything under spoiler tags. If you plan to discuss movie spoilers, please also keep them under spoiler tags for those who aren't interested!

I'm really excited for it! I'm hoping I'll be able to see it on release day. It's the day after one of my dad's paydays so I should be able to. I hope to get some of the special cups and whatnot they have at the theater.

Right now I'm really looking forward to seeing what Songbird Serenade and Princess Skystar are like. I love both their designs so much and want to get a lot of their merch, so I'm excited to see what they're like.

I'm pumped!  I love the themes that have been revealed so far, like

I do feel a bit sad that I've seen so many spoilers, but it's inevitable since I follow toy news and see the toys.  (For what it's worth, the toys look cool, lol.)

I wasn't too excited at first but I'm more excited now then I was. Im excited to see the seaponies and

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I'm trying to avoid major movie spoilers but I've already got a few of the toys including Skystar and her musical shell, Tempest brushable and Tempest Build a Bear.

Tempest is intriguing and I want to know more about her.

I'm really exited! I might be going with my friend who is really into G4. I hope to get the special cups as well. I'm trying to avoid spoilers. I really want to see Skystar, I think she will be my favorite character :)

I still feel the movie is trying to shove too much in there.

I'm looking forward to it.   I mean, I'm still trying to keep my expectations down because usually I only go to the theater for Disney and Pixar stuff and it would be unfair to expect that level of quality.  However, I do have a small group of coworkers who like ponies that are going to go see the movie with me on opening night.  And I totally want to get a couple of the concession souvenirs.  So for me, it is going to be an event!

I just watched the second trailer and I'm hyped, so I'm glad there's a new thread for discussion :D!
It was cool to hear Capper speak in the second trailer :)
Also, I'm really digging the animation style. The ponies look so fluid when they move!

I've been avoiding trailers because they always end up giving away so much of the "good bits".  But I will watch them after I've already seen the movie, lol.

What's the air date?

Cappers voice felt really out of place to me, like it was just a little too deep to fit his character? I'm sure I'll feel different in the film but it threw me off

Something about the movie awakens a weird fascination in me. I guess it's simply the idea that the Mane Six (Mane Six? Who are these Mane Six? We Arenagoers know only of Starlight Glimmer!) basically spend the entire film not interacting with ponies. It adds a new, fresh tone that we have rarely seen before in the franchise - that of a vast world of various fantasy creatures beyond the ponies' dwellings (the G1 comics did hint at this, but never got to go that in-depth on it. They're still awesome, all the same). I also have great affections for the animation style (particularly the Sonic Rainboom seen in two of the released trailers) - if I feel the need to see the film in theaters, I'll do it if it means reviving animation in this form.

Oh, and Capper is such a weird addition to an MLP film that I find him awesome for some reason. Which leads me into my next point:

Capper's voice really does sound weird. I guess that's the way we're getting it though, although the surreal concept of Capper is still admirable.

I don't think they're going to be able to go too deep into anything though because of how much there is.  You'll be surprised how short 99 minutes can be when you are trying to throw everything including the kitchen sink in.
