I assumed that in g3 and g4, the ponies were supposed to canonically have cutie marks on both sides but they didn't do that on the toys because it would have been more expensive.

It was a good watch! Some great music, environments and atmosphere. Rather weak "villain" and any possible allusions to real life societal issues seemed rather confused in what they were trying to say. Similar to Disney movies for better or worse, it felt very much like a carefully engineered product (but this is what MLP always has been, you just notice this more as an adult).

Got the feeling that a big part of the plot was formed while they were still considering using the revamped mane 6 concepts with swapped species. What happened to Sunny at the end would've made a lot of sense for an earth pony Twilight. And it's interesting the unicorns live in a very nature-based society in a forest, since concept Fluttershy was a unicorn. Izzy's introductory scene would probably also have been funnier if it was a pony with Fluttershy's personality.

Just saw the movie. I thought it was very cute! It was nothing spectacular, but I mean. Did it really need to be?
Is it Halloween yet?

Yeah, for some reason, these days most stuff seems to be rated PG and the G rating (or U here in the UK) is more of a "little kids" rating than the "suitable for everyone" rating it used to be.

Heh heh, okay this is cute, I read in one of the new MLP books that...

Omg cute!! ;o;

Well even back then, it wasn't a big deal. You could argue that some of Don Bluth's oldest films like Land Before Time, All Dogs Go to Heaven and Secret of NIMH would be more worthy of a PG rating in this day and age due to frightening imagery, animal experimentation, smoking, drinking,  and character deaths. (And helicopter parents.)

Kids today play GTA and watch violent,  gory anime.  Not that we were much better with our JAWS, and Mortal Kombat and Terminator. 


I'd like to see the G1 reference.

Huh, you're right. I guess I didn't notice because the new cast is so mellow compared to the mane 6. Like Izzy actually has some emotional awareness, so there's no way she could be Pinkie Pie! :lol: but I REALLY like Zipp as a more humble version of Rainbow Dash, she's kinda like Firefly in that way.

I also liked the "unicycling" bit. You just know this is Hasbro pushing DIY for kids :P child me would've LOVED that... well not when they call it unicycling, because unicorns are for girls and girl stuff is icky.

...still would've tried to replicate that bottle music box, though XD

Oh man...I am trying to actively NOT reading any comments regarding the movie, since I am banned from watching it without my son, who is on a camping trip this weekend. But it's so hard not to cheat... :pout:

Dunno if it's true, but I heard they actually were going for a PG with Secret of NIMH but didn't get it for some reason. I agree the ratings were pretty loosely-defined even back then, too.. I think they started off kinda loose, became more defined, then went back to loose.

Probably went a bit off-topic there, sorry. Back on-topic..

Thanks for the screenshot Bladed! :D

First and foremost, though... Did anyone else notice that all the ponies only have a cutie mark on ONE SIDE!? What in the world!? That makes no sense. I guess they wanted the new MLP generation to match the toy line? But that was never an issue with the animation for G3 or G4... I don't understand it. It makes them look so weird.

I assume that the only reason G3 and G4 had them on both sides in the cartoon was so there wouldn't be animation errors with ponies having them on the wrong side. Now that they've moved to CG those kind of errors wouldn't occur anymore so that can finally have the animation match the toys?

Ohhhh that actually makes a heck of a lot of sense! Wow, good thinking!

Still, the cutie marks are barely there, they're small and don't have a solid outline or anything to make them stand out from the body color of the pony. I still say it would have made more sense if...

See, until we got the first trailer I was like... so certain that was a plot point?? Like fully convinced, but I have no idea where I heard it at. I remember telling people that multiple times too. It would just make sense to me tbh.

Anyway, I super duper loved the movie and will be watching it multiple times lmao

Just watched the movie!! I actually quite liked it a lot and I quite liked how all the characters talk... normally, almost? They talk more like people than characters at least in comparison to G4 and it feels quite nice. The pacing feels a bit rushed and the interesting parts kind of peter off around the middle I think, and I just don't really like the songs much either. They kind of seemed flat and the "climax" of the movie is very by the numbers. I did like it though I doubt I'll be watching it all the way through again unless I need reference for fanfic, etc.

I think my favourite character was Izzy followed by Zipp though I kind of found Pipp a bit annoying, which is unfortunate because I really did want to like her. I forget if we're getting a web series or TV show for G5 soon or if it's just going to be the movie for a while, but I'd like to see more of these characters soon. Especially Pipp though because I'd like to see her get more time to shine maybe when she isn't necessarily having to do influencer things

[Movie spoilers, FiM spoilers, talking about the magic situation in the movie, and questions about what I'd like to see answered by future G5 media regarding some of the fantasy elements of FiM and the legacies of the characters]

LOL my friend just watched it and I asked what she thought and she said "So they spoiled the ending with that toy?"

I was like "It's hard to keep secrets when you're a giant corporation that wants to make a ton of money." XD

I haven't seen the movie yet but I will probably watch it at some point. 

I like MLP scenes on the TV screens.  It looks like they used clips from "Ghost of Paradise Estate"?


The soundtrack is on iTunes.

Just watched it, and I loved it.  Friendship is definitely still magic, just like it was as far back as G1 - in other words, this is My Little Pony!

Note: I might do a more detailed opinion one day, but if it isn't here, it will appear at some point on my Animation Review Show on YouTube at some point (I'll either start that show later this year or next year.)

But yeah... cutie marks, or whatever you prefer to call them are  always on both sides to me.

EDIT: OMG, I missed the G1 reference, that's awesome!  I love how they included the 20% G4 thing during that part if they did - nostalgia overload!

Speaking of nostalgia, this is definitely going on my list of 2021 nostalgia!

I will confess to being a brony, but I assure you that the things you may not like about them do not apply to me, I mostly keep the fandom name due to nostaligia, but I do genuinely love MLP as a whole, not just FIM, and not just the popularity of FIM - I genuinely love the show (and all the others)
