I am here to bring some G5 related news and to keep the thread going on topic. My only source is from someone in a Discord sever who is partners with Hasbro. So take this with a grain of salt.
I don’t know if many remember, but there was a time where it was being debated if we were going to get either 8x22min episodes or 23x22min episodes for what’s supposed to be “Season 1”
Well
he talked with a few sources of who have been looking into what Atomic Cartoons is up to and it seems that things are heavily leaning towards “Season 1” getting only 8x22min episodes.
With the visual style that Atomic Cartoons is taking, and based on a short conversation with DJTHED yesterday, it seems unlikely we could get 23 episodes in a less than a year or close to a year, due to the amount of frames that would have to be rendered for the 3D animations. DJTHED did some rough math and he said it’d be about 700,000+ frames to render. So almost a million frames.
Realistically, Atomic Cartoons doesn’t have the man power to pull something like that off. And his sources seem to basically heavily suggest that we will get only 8 episodes for part 1. Then the Christmas special and then more episodes later on. So essentially splitting “Season 1” into several parts. Much slower compared to G4’s schedule. So it seems like we’re going to have multiple hiatuses.. or not. So be prepared for those wait times…
I’m honestly not entirely sure if they’re gonna call them seasons. But that part, i’m not entirely sure..
Again, whether you believe me or not, this is the only news I’ve heard from that person, even if it sounds sketchy and weird. We are two months away until the series begins. We may get official news about the schedule sometime soon or later down the road to September.

Isn’t 8 episodes a season the norm for Netflix cartoons though?
8-10 eps is like the normal length for an average season of a show on Netflix, them making a full 26 episode season like for FIM was never gonna happen

I’m fine with Netflix splitting My Little Pony: Make Your Mark into multiple batches. I just hope it gets a new order of episodes and specials after the release of the initial 23 episodes and 4 specials.

In that way I feel like it might end early because it was taking long. Or it feels like it anyway. Technically 9 seasons but it’s actually 4.5. I don’t expect it to last longer than g4.

Sci-fi & Dragons
There’s one thing I have been thinking of:
It seems as if, even though the magic was stored in the three crystals, absolutely no one that originally had full knowledge of said crystals told anypony this. Earth ponies still worried about unicorns using their magic up to G5’s “present day” during the movie, even though magic has been gone for what should have been a long time because of the crystals being separated. Meanwhile, all unicorns knew is that magic has disappeared for some reason.
Not even Sunny Starscout, the one who started the idea of bringing the crystals together, knew what the crystals do as she only learned about they do out of speculation.

I’m watching the new episode and Thunder apparently went through a drastical voice evolution since his last speaking role in Tell Your Tale. He went from sounding like his A New Generation self (high-pitched and somewhat nasally) to his A Maretime Bay Adventure self (deep and gruff, like most of the Royal Guards from G4 sounded like). And Alphabittle finally reappeared!

Really getting sick of the whole magic goes away after one argument thing the writers keep using. I’m getting tired of how fragile magic is in general really.
