Alleged G5 Storyboard has been found
« on: January 13, 2021, 01:46:00 PM »
Welp, I expected this was gonna happen sooner or later.

A storyboard for what appears to be the G5 movie has been found. And surprise surprise, guess who’s here?
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I am not shocked in the slightest they’re here, but it seems like this movie takes place in a distant future and the older pony is telling the other pony about their accomplishments. Looks like G5 will be taking place in the FiM world.

My memory could be fuzzy, but I already thought it was confirmed they would be in it. I thought the movie would act as a bridge (this part is my own thought).

It could be possible I was just be remembering peoples assumptions too...

Hasbro noted in October that the “old cast” would be in the movie but they didn’t exactly specify which gen or which characters, and Tara Strong went on Instagram live last year and said Twilight won’t be in G5, so some people took it as the Mane 6 as we knew them wouldn’t be there. This storyboard could mean they don’t have speaking roles but appear, or Tara could have been talking about the G5 show and not the movie. In any case, this is pretty damning evidence that they’ll be there in some way, shape or form.

I don't buy it so far. I could be wrong, but this could also be something from a scrapped episode or an old Rainbow Roadtrip thing.

I would have been surprised (happy, but surprised) if they were not there. Hasbro are entirely devoid of new ideas and cling onto G4 as their cash cow into any new generation. MLP is now forever tied to the mane 6 and their annoying take on friendship. Which is a shame, but hey. If it is just a case of here are those characters from the past, but we're moving on now to something else and that's the only time we'll ever see them - fine.

If the new characters are descended from the M6 or it keeps referring back to them/results in mass merchandising of the M6 in G5, then it's not so fine with me.

Whether this is from G5 or not doesn't really matter all that much. I don't see G5 being anything too innovative, since G4 basically did nothing new or innovative after about year 3.

(And I have tried to be fair to PL, but I saw one of the eps on pop the other day and I couldn't watch it for more than a couple of minutes before turning it off. It hurt my ears, my eyes, my brain...I don't even know what to say about it >< .It was a couple of minutes of complete sensory overload on my TV screen. I didn't like FIM, and sometimes the plotline annoyed me, but watching an episode never had that impact on my brain. It wasn't the plot of the episode, it was the "noise" of it, visually and audially. I'm not sure how else to explain it but I had to turn it off. It makes me wonder if that was just me, I just hit a bad episode or if PL is just really not autism-friendly).

Of course, if Hasbro wanted to exploit its history, it could have dug back further and added stories from G1 and G3 (they don't recognise G2 in the US) as well, and tied them in also. So there were heroes from all past generations. But that won't happen, because Hasbro are still infatuated with pinkie pie and probably think she's funnier than most of the kids ever did.

I think they're also hoping to hang on to bronies by pretending like their generation is still continuing.

...We'll see. Reserving judgement till I see the toyline. Not overly interested in the propaganda spiel. I've never been a big fan of the animated series or specials for any MLP generation, and G4 especially so, so for me it will be about what the toyline puts out.

Variety and brushables, with any luck. And absolutely no M6.

The person who worked on this storyboard works for Boulder Animation, who wasn’t involved with the production on FiM. And it was noted on their Linkedin page that they were working on a CGI theatrical film for Boulder, Boulder’s only working on one theatrical film at the moment.

🤔 Who exactly was working on the storyboard? Very interesting. There is always still a chance that this scene from the movie was scrapped but this gives more weight to it than the storyboard itself.

Her name is Marylene Sun, and she worked at Boulder for 2 years. This storyboard was uploaded to the internet in April of 2020, and she left around 2019, so it’s possible this scene could have been cut from the film, but since Hasbro mentioned the “old cast” being in the film my money is still on the Mane 6 being in the movie in a scene like this.

Agreed. Even as a big G4 animation fan, over the years I’ve become more of a fan of the toys than anything. What make it breaks G5 for me will be the brushables and if they’re cute or not. Of course, I’ll still consume the animated media but if the brushables have poor hair quality/look gross I’ll steer clear of them.

That's what I was thinking of, thank you.

:shrug: I don't find it to be a big deal if they are in the movie. I'm over G4, but a cameo isn't going to hurt anything. It would make sense more than anything since G4 was so big.




Off topic, but does anyone know how to make links say something instead of the direct url? The whole link looks weird  -_-

Looks like one of those frenetic high octane things. More like that icky PL. Unless that's what G5 is going to be. Wouldn't that be a shame?

First off, thank you for the tip! Much appreciated! :biggrin:

And I agree. I’m glad that out of all the options they had for continuing the FiM legacy, they chose the one that makes sense. G5’s animated media will probably be a Legend of Korra/Next Generation for FiM instead of being that “Oh Twilight has no wings and doesn’t read and Applejack likes oranges now!” thing they tried to do early on with G5. I wholeheartedly understand the frustration with the Mane 6 clouding up the toys with pointless rehashes over and over again, and I really hope Hasbro learned their lesson with the decline in MLP toy sales from the last 3 years that selling kids the same 6 characters over and over again gets tiring to even them. If the Mane 6 show up maybe once every now and then in a brushable wave or 2 I’d be okay with that, but we really don’t need them at the forefront again, and it seems like they understand that. It’s time for some new blood in this franchise. Plus, like it or not FiM was successful. Even though we all agree it would be best to move on from the show it was very popular. It would be strange if they didn’t want to continue its legacy.

Um. I really hope this isn’t what we’re getting. Art style looks pretty darn similar to G4. I was hoping for something new...I knew G4 cast would be in the movie to bridge the generations or whatever, but idk how I feel about this version where it looks like new ponies are telling their stories or obsessing over them. Gives a lot of room to just..shift the focus back to the mane 6 and have the new characters not really shine. I mean frankly....this segment just looks like a clumsy brony self insert into the FiM world to me. :huh: Maybe it’s better within context.

Oh wow, it's a full animatic. From the title I was expecting one or two board panels.

I wish I could say I was surprised the main 6 are there, but... I'm not, I expected this all along. :shrug: Otherwise this doesn't really tell me anything... dunno what to make of it.

I did notice that at least in one shot it looked like Rarity had feathered hooves a la G4.5 so I don't think this is something cut from G4?

Art style looks pretty darn similar to G4.

keep in mind that a storyboard's art style isn't necessarily indicative of what the final product'll look like - some are rougher than others. though I think G5's art style probably will be pretty close to G4's >_<

Thank you for the further information, Sweet! I was disbelieving at first because I feel like so many people would jump to call anything nowadays a G5 leak, but this is pretty damning evidence. I'm adding it to my Leaks page on the G5mlp.fandom site for now.
