Its just the happiness of a pony. Ponies are happiest when they’re doing things they enjoy or are good at. My guess is it involves the thing that causes their cutie marks to appear for the first time. Unicorns also believed they could lose their luminessence or it could get stolen. Who knows what started that idea or what value a sparkle really holds if they don’t want to lose it.

An mlp fan artist who also draws other non-mlp stuff but that aside, she really loves Grogar given the way she draws him even post season 9 when he had a canon design which is less sinister than how she draws her. I supposed she specialises in AU pics, sometimes if not very often inserting her Grogar inside. One set of her AU pics as I mentioned involves Starlight being still evil and given a better backstory and proper punishment. Search her name and Starlight Glimmer, you’re welcome.

With Sunny potentially dealing with Argyle’s death, do you guys think g5 will handle it maturely or will they talk down to kids about it.
For a point of reference on how cartoon shows from my childhood handled death, here’s a link to a review about the Rugrat’s Mother’s Day epusode. https://youtu.be/4Yxcc5fAtlw

I think it will be handled maturely without losing its light tone from the movie, kinda similar to how Disney has shown Simba’s way to deal with the death of his father in Lion King (the good one, not the garbage one).

Anyone watched the tv show Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure? It is much darker than the film Tangled.
Background Pony #7189
The movie had been made for several years and got its final form in the last year before the release in 2021, when G4 was “shut down” for two years, everyone here now knows that the movie had several scripts, the one that came closest was the script about a darker world with open hostility, morally dubious methods in use and more irreconcilable enemies, before a decision was made to move to the connection between the G4 and the G5. Then the idea of ​​the magic that disappeared, a rescue for the movie team who can thus complete their work without starting again, still became very different. We got a mysterious background about the lost magic, the “everyone forgot” mystery, the conflict between the tribes that is not a conflict, and fear instead of anger or hatred. The old draft was a little too dark, too easy - too predictable.
The movie today, on the other hand, is a window into a world that is familiar to us, yet has been shrouded in a veil of mystery that has only just been opened, as the return of magic and Sunny as an alicorn - whether permanent or temporary - shown that a new course had been laid out in the old G4 world, where a new world manifested itself. There will be many questions, a lot of speculation, and it is clear that the director behind the movie did not have much authority behind him because several key interests were essential in the preparation of the movie. Sunny was meant to be a permanent alicorn, it depends on the fans, we got an intermediate solution, as Sunny’s potential as an earth pony is too great.
It is possible that the recent seasons of the G4, especially the reactions of the fans, may have served as the background for the choices that were made when designing the “rules” and frameworks of the future world. The disappointment over Discord’s deception may mean that G5 will see the ram Grogar appeared. If the information that Sunny is the element of Hope should be real, Grogar who spreads fear, hopelessness and terror for his own magical power, is almost perfect as the villain boss of the G5. And as the noise around the S10 and growing interest in more lore about the world has shown that there are very many who want to learn a lot about the background, it may mean that world exploration will be central to the G5. Sunny and her friends have just started.
Argyle’s death may be due to illness, but his death can not be accidental, and Sunny, who wants to find out anyone about her father who has been shown to have a mysterious side, will undoubtedly discover many things that were hidden from her. Among other things, what were Argyle’s last experiences that happened before his death. The screencap of his glasses and medallion from an angle where Grogar’s bell lay early, when it was realized that he was dead, gives a vague hint. And the three crystals and Twilight Sparkle’s cutie mark make it clear that something mysterious is going on.

Somehow I don’t see NewGen bucking the norm. Like most shows for children, it will probably look to avoid certain trigger words and phrases like “dead”. “died”, “dying”, “passed away”, etc. while settling on more subtle terms like “gone” or “left here”. That said, I thought that the movie did at least suggest that G5 is going to deal with the subject of grief openly, and not just bury its head in the sand.
For starters, the beginning of the movie builds up Argyle as this loving and wise dad that is immediately likeable and then after five minutes we learn that he’s either dead or missing. The shot of the glasses and the medallion with the photo was for dramatic effect; to make the audience feel a sense of grief for his loss. (I got a bit choked up the first time I saw that scene).
I also got the impression from the movie that Sunny actually accepts the fact that her father is dead. Talking to a dead loved one and displaying mementos are healthy parts of the grieving process. And while Sunny clearly misses her father, that too is normal. Truth be told, you never really ever stop missing a loved one who has died. Sunny also carries on her father’s legacy and thus keeps his memory close.
In the coming series, I do imagine occasional moments where Sunny will continue to work through her grief, even as she thrives.

Also I don’t hate Sprout but you’ll have to admit, he did cause collateral damage to Argyle’s shrine.
This is true. Seems like Sprout is going to have to make it right somehow.

@Andyxdr
These people keep mixing real life with cartoons and yet, cartoons themselves blur the line between reality and fiction. There’s The Last Airbender and Steven Universe with their dark storylines of war and there’s Amphibia and Star Vs the Forces of Evil where the ruler is actually more tyrannical than we thought. MLP is meant for little girls, I get that we need to teach our children to do a reality check but I also feel society would improve so much more if people simply stop fighting and making enemies. This philosophy is so much beneficial in the long run. It won’t have immediate effects, but it’ll be worth it. Have some of you seen the comment section of every page of Fix?

I didn’t like what Sprout did in that ending, but it was intentional, to make us root for Sunny and her new friends. I don’t get all the “he should have been punished” arguments, especially compared to other things that were so so much worse than that.

@Phoenixflambe
I agree. I also think Sprout doesn’t really need a punishment because I see him as the type of character who would be ashamed of himself for what he has done. Everything he did was because of ignorance as well as wanting approval from his mother and every pony else in town. Of course he went overboard but from his point of view, original he thought he was doing the right thing. I’m pretty sure if he would have went with Hitch to find Sunny and Izzy his views might have changed and he would have been a lot more understanding of the other races.
