MLP G5 Discussion and Speculation Thread

The only reason why this new upcoming one is getting attention because G4 is mentioned. In the EQD article that talks about it, it has a lot more comments than the KRD comics.

Definitely think this is just bullshit. Zipp is a proud tomboy not unlike Raindow Dash from G4, but even she has her feminine side as seen repeatedly in G5, both in MYM, TYT and IDW comics. We are familiar with her problems related to the pressure of expectations as heir to her mother as future ruler of the pegasi. We also know that she likes to tackle problems with the same energy as Dash, but with greater sense - her detective tendencies were not plucked out of thin air. Already in the movie we saw her personality. And we saw that she has an identity crisis related to her place among the pegasi, since she is a princess who will become a queen - and she had openly admitted that she felt a little uncomfortable with this.
This is what Whitley wants to show, I think. And Whitley, despite the S10 fiasco which is due to him having overextended himself, had not created controversial subjects in his storytelling as a writer for FiM comics. Would love it if Ted Anderson and Thom Zahler also appeared in the future. The artist is the well-known G4 comic artist, Andy Price, who had taken a break, especially after the conclusion of S10. It will be his second work in G5 comics so far, he had only done MLP: G5 #8 so far. Price, who was G4 comics’ undisputed king among the artists, has been replaced by Amy Mebberson who has become the queen of the G5 comic artists. Perhaps Price will be more familiar with TYT design than with MYM design.
These are very familiar people to fans of MLP from the very beginning of G4.

The story begins in #1 and continues in two epic, oversized issues! A must-read for Friendship Is Magic fans as the world of Generation Four collides with the ponies of Generation Five. A storm’s a-brewing in Zephyr Heights! For the first time in forever, Queen Haven is taking a vacation, which means Princess Zipp is in charge! And while the queen is away, the Mane Six will play. But the forecast for the substitute queen’s reign is not looking good… A mass of clouds the size of a city is wreaking havoc on Zephyr Heights… It’s hailing, it’s snowing, it’s raining, it’s blowing wind, and all the Pegasi are in danger! The Mane Six quickly jump into action, but it’s up to Zipp to save her kingdom. Her bravery may just lead to the discovery of a lifetime…and bridge the world between the past and present.
The synopsis feels to be the wrong expression for the purpose of arousing interest, because it is easy to see that it was made to create misunderstandings.
And while the queen is away, the Mane Six will play.”
It must mean New Mane 6, I use this term to differentiate between Mane 6 from G4 and Mane 6 from G5, which is “New Mane 6”. It will be much easier. There are other six-pony groups in MLP, especially in the G4 world where I think there are 3 pony-centric groups and 1 non-pony group before the S10 comics.
It is clear that it is based in elemental magic, earth, water, fire - the first four elements - and then two others, the first will be void, “aether”, “the pure essence that the gods breathed”, this can translates to magic/sorcery. The second and last is probably feeling/emotionality - and this is what separated the equestrian elemental teaching from the human one. One of the element bears in all groups was always with an element based on emotionality. Ponies have six movement mechanisms, hooves, mouth, tail and, for the pegasi, wings, horns on unicorns. We humans mostly use hands because they are so useful and versatile, ponies don’t have that. Even the chimeric intelligent creatures seem to share the same with the ponies.
The Mane Six quickly jump into action, but it’s up to Zipp to save her kingdom.
This suggests the New Mane 6 - Sunny, Hitch, Izzy, Misty, Pipp and Zipp will be in Zephyr Heights when the storm arrives. They want to save the pegasi city, and get to work - but it is Zipp who will decide the case, when she has to save not only her kingdom, but also her people. This reveals that Zipp alone is the focus of the story.
Her bravery may just lead to the discovery of a lifetime…and bridge the world between the past and present.
This is what contained the content of the crossover between G4 and G5, not a time journey or something like that where the two different generations meet, but the rediscovery of the wonders of the past - because there are many indications that it is the ruins of the legendary Cloudsdale that had come to Zephyr Heights. We learned in TYT 2.0 that the pegasi had stopped weather control because they had created automatic weather control stations on magical clouds that can hover around for “all eternity”. This also reveals that when the magic disappeared, it did not affect non-living magic which will thus continue on its own. Only living (active) pony magic had disappeared. It is possible that Cloudsdale is attracted to the pegasi who may have a little too much magic because the magic in the city of the clouds was created by the pegasi.
For the New Mane 6 and the pegasi, this can be an unimaginable experience when they witness one of the wonders of the past, and learn more about the G4 world. We know from G4 that the pegasi enjoyed monumental buildings and statues from the Greco-Roman world, and it is possible that we will see statues of the alicorns, and especially of the Mane 6 from G4. Raindow Dash was a living legend in her time. It could also be a flashback to the time when the pegasi left Cloudsdale for good.

G5 is just sort of vibing at the moment, which I don’t mind. I like that we just have a bunch of smaller things to look forwards to.
