It's not my fault the show FAILED
to launch a feature film franchise. If Equestria Daily didn't put the news saying that a second My Little Pony movie is on the way, I wouldn't have had false hopes about a sequel that no longer exists thanks to Hasbro cancelling FiM after nine seasons and turning the concepts for what could have been into a goddamn television special.
That could have saved Hasbro's reputation in the film industry, but no. Hasbro doesn't care if critics hate them for their movies, not just the MLP movie, but also Bayformers, G.I. Joe and Battleship. (By that I meant cancelling what could have been in favor of a hard reboot. Ask the Hasbro spokesperson who said the 2021 movie isn't a direct sequel to the 2017 movie.)
If the fandom is really enough, then I would love to read fanfictions of what they could have done to FiM. Maybe an ending for Equestria Girls that we won't officially get. If Hasbro can't get what we want, we should do it ourselves. I know it's a shitty excuse to shield criticism, but that doesn't mean you can still do it yourself and consider this an addition to their criticism to what we got from Hasbro.
I just want Ponies to be accepted by all of society, regardless if it's a toy franchise or it's for girls. And Sometimes I think criticism will ruin things for everyone, because people will agree and will make people not check it out because of the criticism. It's not just with MLP, but it happens to other shows like Game of Thrones, Star vs., Steven Universe, Sword Art Online and even badly written shows like Teen Titans Go! and Pony Life.
