MLP G5 Discussion and Speculation Thread

Background Pony #CA86
Anyone thinking that when the show comes, Equestrian still won’t be reunited that the show’s overarching plotline will be the new Mane 6 working to re-unifying it and solving the tensions between the three pony cities?

I certainly hope they don't go there. If I'd have to put up with dystopian Jim Crow bullcrap in the series proper, there's a good chance I'll hang back and hope the comic lasts until G6.

Fortunately, Hasbro probably wouldn't approve of that any more than I would.

I reckon the law of seperation will be ended in the movie, but the tribes will still be working out what that actually means in the series.

See this is why I'd rather have seen a hard reset with no continuity to G4. Discussions during G5 I fear are all going to be arguments over how it ties into G4 instead of letting the generation that ended two years ago lie in the past and focusing on the present.

I mean it's fine to speculate and connect gens since a lot of people like doing that, I just hope it doesn't constantly get judged against G4. Which, of course it will. But I'd like to see it stand on its own at least a little.

It will for the simple nature of it being a continuation. You really can’t separate G5 from G4 simply because the bridge between the two is built in. Its probably not fair to G5 and I guarantee some people will take it too far and annoy everyone with their G4 > G5 comparisons but the narrative is there and we can’t really ignore it unfortunately.

They really should have made G5 its own separate thing. Depending on how things play out, especially how they handle the G4 characters & their legacy, I can see this whole thing getting ugly among some more intense sides of the fandom.

Yes, true. Since Gen 4 was such a big hit in the early days, anything after that was going to definitely be compare to gen 4 even if it was it's own separate thing from the start.

Even though the comparisons between generations will happen regardless, I feel like doing that will just hurt one's enjoyment of G5

I feel like there would have been more leeway if the series was trying to establish its own identity but by trying to build itself on the foundations of the previous generation it's limiting its potential and forcing the viewers to draw comparison. EqG and Pony Life, which drew a lot of criticism, had the freedom to establish its own identity because it was tangential to G4.
To put it metaphorically, G5 is a new bedspread and everyone wants to know if the thread count is lower.

Hopefully, even if the thread count is a bit lower, it'll still a really comfortable bedsheet.

Even coming from someone who's been kinda distant on the series for a while now, I don't really have any hopes for this Gen.

Not a fan of the characters, the animation looks kinda uncanny, and the "story" basically just makes me feel like the previous series was all for nothing if it was just gonna lead to… whatever this is.

It's best to see what the movie will do with these connections to G4 cause it's not about the idea or premise, but the execution of it. Maybe they'll wow and dazzle us by making it work or they'll trip over themselves at the starting line, who knows?
