I would be fine with one of the two ideas. The only thing I don’t want from this approach is a very conflicting character with situations where the story being told in dialogue conflicts with the story being told during actions.
Actions define a character.

What if instead of reforming villains like G4, G5 has the ponies defeating or outright killing the villains?
It could show the difference in ideologies between Twilight and Sunny. Twilight thinks villains can be redeemed, while Sunny thinks evil must be vanquished by any means necessary.

I have a headcanon that Sunny Starscout got bullied for her beliefs in her foalhood. While Hitch Trailblazer protected her because he believes it is wrong to attack a defenseless person regardless of their beliefs.

That sounds really stupid.

Yeah, i think that is how their friendship started. After protecting her for the first time, Sunny invites him to her home to ask Argyle Starshine to take care of Hitch’s wounds he got in the fight. Then Sunny tells stories about the mane six and asks Hitch to play with her.
Then Hitch starts to visit her everyday, Sprout propably gets jealous of Sunny for spending more time with Hitch (Hitch and Sprout are already friends). Hitch does not want Sprout to feel left out so he asks him to come with him too.

When you get right down to it, Hitch is an amazing friend.
Hitch says “I’m the only real friend you’ve got left in this town.” This is a double whammy; it means that Hitch has stayed friends with Sunny despite the growing conflict of interest it represents, which also means that other ponies have cut ties with Sunny over less. Watching as an adult, you can appreciate that Hitch holds all the power in the relationship, and that Sunny needs him more than he needs her. Yet he never tries to take advantage of her.
In his conversation with Sprout, Hitch rants about how he’s done bailing Sunny out. But I noticed something about Hitch’s line in Zephyr Heights:
“Arresting you. And… saving you… A bit of both, actually… You’re welcome!” He said he was done, yet he’s travelled across Equestria and infiltrated a (supposedly) hostile city. He’s annoyed at himself, because despite everything that’s happened, he’s still there for Sunny.

I mean, I’m not saying that the antithesis has to be shown in a positive light and who’s to say that they’re gonna take the Captain Planet approach? By this point, we’ve largely moved away from black and white morality in our fictional writing and if G5 wants to have more modern writing tropes like what the movie shows, then they might have more subtlety and a more gray area look into things with Sunny’s opposite. They’re likely not gonna go all “Racism is bad so here’s a racist antagonist where we punish and kill them and all racism is now gone forever”, they’re way too smart for that.

Grumpy and antisocial

The movie’s director mentioned that one of the mountains Izzy and Sunny saw in the end of their duet song was supposed to be Canterlot (it’ll be up for the folks in charge of the series to decide it it is canon or not). Something that got me confused at first is that they were looking at said mountain from what seemed to be a cliff. However, I looked closely and I think they were looking at it from that mountain next to Manehattan (the one who seems to be right in front of Hollow Shades). And since the pink tree seen in the background when Hitch realizes he lost his badge is apparently the Tree of Harmony, Zephyr Heights could be on Foal Mountain. (Sorry I used a textless version of the map, I couldn’t find good ones with text)

I don’t think the G4 map is gonna be considered canon for g5
IMO i would like it more of the setting is away from any of g4 locations (or built over the remains)
Also didn’t Imalou say that the pink tree was BASED of the tree of harmony and not literally the same one from the show

Pretty sure the map wasn’t even canon to G4. At the least various traveling episodes don’t make much sense based on the geography.
