Title: MLP: The Movie Discussion Thread
Post by: Bekuno 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 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'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 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?

Post by: Sunset on September 13, 2017, 01:47:13 PM
Opening night is October 6th.

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.

Post by: Gingerbread on September 13, 2017, 09:27:39 PM
I'm trying to decide if I want to watch this when it comes out or not. I'll probably have to go on my own, which doesn't bother me, but I don't want to feel like it's a waste of money. Some of the scenes though look like they will be awesome on a big screen... The other thing is the UK is highly unlikely to get all the cinema goodies that go along with the film, which is frustrating. Will definitely be getting it when it comes out on DVD though - hopefully for Xmas.

The soundtrack is up for preorder on iTunes but it looks like the titles might give parts of the movie away

I'll be watching the movie anyway to see if it's better than the trailer made it out to be and to see if the "new look" and animation plays out better but the song from Sia (which is already out) wasn't really that great IMO.

I assume you've never seen a Sia music video before? That's Maddie Ziegler, she performs in the music videos for a lot of Sia's songs. Also Songbird Serenade's design is based directly on Sia herself (https://www.thesun.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/2694481.main_image.jpg?strip=all).

I finally found The Stormy Road to Canterlot  Just to be sure before I start reading it's all backstory on Tempest, right? So nothing that happens in the book will spoil anything in the movie?

No I haven't and if this is an example, I don't think I'll be seeing anymore Sia styled videos.

I absolutely love that Sia son...I'm a metalhead, and sing rock covers. I really, really want to cover that song, just listened to it three times on the trot :lol: Actually there is an open mic in a couple of weeks...I could do an acoustic version then... :good: I am even more excited for the film now.

Argg!  To watch or not to watch?   I'm already extremely spoiled.  But I don't know if I want to have seen the whole movie before actually seeing the movie...
 Can I make it 17 more days?

If it IS Firefly, then the two she's with could also be FiM versions of G1 ponies. We'll probably have to wait and see though.

I think it's just inevitable with the vast number of background ponies needed for both the show and the movie that some of them are going to color match some previous gen ponies.  I think we would need a similar symbol or name to really say it's a referance.   Bu it is fun trying to spot them.

Ok, so yeah.  You convinced me.  I just couldn't resist :)

On a different note, does anybody else ever use moviefone.com?  Looks like on their website, every time a theater has show times listed for the 2017 movie they have listed the g1 movie instead.

I listened to Sia's song but I'm not sure if I liked it. It might take a couple more listens and actually hearing it in the movie.
