Is anyone else not “feeling” the main cast? I like them but they don’t seem like they will be very interesting to watch interact and stuff. Misantro pony pointed out how similar some of the cast were to the mane six and now i feel like they should gone with non similar looking personalities for them except for izzy, hitch and maybe sunny.

MisAnthroPony’s comparison between the mane six and the mane five are dumb as hell. Sunny Starscout is nothing like Twilight Sparkle. Izzy Moonbow is energetic but not as much as Pinkie Pie, no more similarities beyond that. Zipp Storm and Rainbow Dash are atheletic tomboys and that is it, no more similarities there either. Pipp Petals is also nothing like Rarity.

I don’t think it’s fair to use the Mane 6 comparison just to be negative to the Mane 5. People love the Mane 6 for their own merits, and that’s cool. But saying that the Mane 5 aren’t as good and using the Mane 6 as an excuse is lame. That’s not a good review.
I don’t know Misanthropony, but based on a couple of videos he made, he sounds like a boomer.

for better or worse the mane 6 are probably the most well known characters in the MLP franchise, espically towards more casual viewers, so every gen going forward will probably have comparisons about their respective cast being made towards the mane six

Since the movie had a song in the style of grunge, could we get a song in the style of ska in G5?

I feel like the movie just didn’t have enough time to go into the details of the main cast. What are their interests? What motivates them? What are their goals? Their strengths? Their flaws? We only got a few clues & tidbits here or there in the movie. I’m certain though that we’ll find out more about them later down the road.
And yeah there are some similarities between the two casts, but one could also argue that there are just as many ways in which they are different. Also keep in mind that MLP has a long tradition of introducing new characters in the current generation that are a nod to characters from older generations, but still unique in their own way. I actually give them some credit for using all different names this time!

There’s a lot of stuff going on with the new ponies. More than the old g4 cast had. The movie just did not focus on it because it is not related to the main story.
  1. Sunny. What’s the deal with her father, Argyle? Who is he? Why does he know what he knows?Sunny herself will be exploring all the lore in the series. Finding out what caused the tribe division, etc. She’s the explorer.
  2. Hitch. I don’t know much about him other than his mysterious animal charm powers. If he’s fired from being sheriff in the series, it would be interesting to see what he does moving forward since his power and job don’t really compliment each other.
  3. Zipp and Pipp. You can tell there’s a lot of family issues going on. Pipp is the favorite child but Zipp is poised to be queen. Zipp does not want to be queen while Pipp will sell out anypony if it means she can live like a queen. “Can’t you be more like your sister” are words that really hit hard.
  4. Izzy. Its hinted that she never really had any friends. Does she hide her sadness and lonelyness behind a fake bubbly persona? She also has the power to spot other ponies that are sad and lonely because if her sparkle vision that seemed like a big deal in the movie but was never really used. I’m betting it will be very important for character development in the series.
  5. Sprout. A pony who had the childhood dream of being a sheriff. His dream was taken away from him by his childhood friend because he wasn’t good at it. Ponies have a talent that they’re super good at. Sprout either don’t know his talent or turned his back on it because he’s obsessed with being sheriff. What’s he really good at? Why does he want to be sheriff?
The movie hinted at stuff but if you blink you’ll miss it. There’s a lot of stories there and this is just out of the box. As the characters grow in the series, so will their complexity.

I wouldn’t trust Misanthro Pony when it comes to opinions or any other rhetoric.
@Background Pony #45CD
Maybe, depends on what musical style they’ll go for but that would be cool since I do like ska.
@hironakamura
I mean, that’s pretty much expected for a pilot like this. Introduce the basic concepts of the characters, world, dreams and aspirations and such and then build on that in the series. That’s pretty normal.

Muh themes!
As far as comparisons go, it’s kinda fun to compare and contrast Twilight and Sunny.
Both lived in a tower.
Both started their journeys by sending a letter.
Both thirst for knowledge.
Both became alicorns.
Sunny is more adventurous and extraverted, while Twilight is more studious and introverted.
Sunny wants to prove that the idea is right, whereas Twilight wants to prove that she’s right.
Sunny is idealistic while Twilight is more cynical.
Sunny is happy to make new friends, while Twilight is annoyed at first.

@DerpyFast
Imagine if Twilight before Nightmare Moon’s events events and Sunny before A New Generation’s events met each other. They would probably annoy each other greatly.
Twilight the Satisfied Introvert.
Sunny the Reluctant Introvert.
In some alternate world, Sunny seems like the type of pony Twilight would read about and try to look up to. Sunny is more a traditional positive hero like Superman while Twilight is more meant to be relatable and down to earth.
I will say it’s possible Sunny doesn’t learn a whole lot for its own sake. She mostly learns for the sake of creating bonds. In fact I wouldn’t surprises if she was not a good student in say math or physics.

I guess expecting more selfish motivations or bad outcomes of decisions, even her own.
The opposite of hopeful.
Certainly not one to start out thinking friendship solves everything.

That’s good, but his observation really isn’t new. The character comparisons between the two generations was going to happen regardless, but I don’t think it’s something that you should be concerned about. Remember, the Mane 6 themselves do share some personality traits with the characters from the previous generations so this right here is just continuing a tradition that’s been in place for a long time.

I haven’t really watched the previous ones or at least can’t remember them too well but I did watch the one movie with the smooze in it but I hope the gen 5 series reignites what I felt watching gen 4 again, my love for the show started fading away in season 9.
