The G1 Appreciation Thread

Background Pony #E819
Hello fans, my name is Edward and i’m a recently released Hasbro employee. I’ve noticed that many fanbases have had a lot of confusion concerning Hasbro’s future plans for their properties so I decided I would make my rounds on as many sites as I could using various aliases of course to set the record straight. Given this is a My Little Pony site i’ll start with that.


-Generation 5 isn’t technically official yet as nothing has been put into production, its merely ideas being thrown around the past year. If it is finalized you’d see one CG movie roughly every 3-4 years staring between 2023-2025 and annual Flash or Toon Boom animated direct to video films

-Friendship is Magic is still an active production Season 9 begins the animation process soon. Despite last year’s leaks there is still a 50/50 chance Hasbro will approve a 10th season which would air sometime in late 2020.

-Season 9 will be 26 episodes.

-There will be a 45 minute 10th anniversary special for Friendship is Magic in 2020. It is undecided whether Boulder Media or DHX will animate it.


-Season 10 if approved would most likely be animated by Boulder Media instead of DHX. As would any/most future animations after that. Hasbro is pleased by Boulder’s work on Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own.

-Season 10, if approved might air on a different outlet as Hasbro wishes to slowly ween themselves off of Discovery Family. My money would go with Cartoon Network or Netflix.

-Equestria Girls will have more animated specials and shorts over the next 3 years at least. There are no plans to do a big reboot for the spin-off. It could keep on as is indefinitely or lead into a sequel series like Rescue Bots did. What that would be I have no idea as I doubt they’d do a series set in college.

-Hasbro will continue its partnership with IDW into the 2020’s,so expect many many more comics based on Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls for years to come. And maybe 4 issue G5 mini series to act as tie-ins to movies as we have done for Transformers in the past.

-Liscensors don’t want a reboot, Hasbro is really worried of losing partners over this so expect them to keep allowing companies to liscense out Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls for Apperal, Misscelanious, and High-Quality Collectibles for at least the next five or so years regardless of what happens with the property.

-Hasbro is aware a reboot for an actively popular franchise could bomb, which is not what they want so there is a chance they may try to have their cake and eat it too by having new animations of Friendship is Magic still running concurrently to act as a safety net if the Generation Five movie fails. Equestria Girls is also being pushed harder to act as a buffer as well.

-If Gen5 plans fall through you would probably see the current incarnation continue as shorts and specials like Equestria Girls current format.

-Hasbro will continue to work with partners to push the brand harder in Asian countries, ecspecially China and Japan.



And for a few none pony bonuses.

-There WILL be a fully animated Transformers Movie by Boulder Media released within the next three years

-Hana-Zuki season 2 should be up on the American YouTube page within the next six months.

-Expect another live action G.I. Joe movie within the next five years.

Well, that’s all from this old dead horse. Have fun kids.

Yeah… Also, as "legit" the trivia might seem, I'm still skeptical of the veracity of those claims. There's no supporting evidence for them.

I'll rather celebrate that Hasbro licensed new G1 toys in 2017.

Really?! Omg! I gotta get me some!

Also, I wish they'd make a G1 MLP Crossover with G1 Transformers and/or G1 G.I. Joe… Possibly as a potential toy. (Like Kiss Player, but with ponies and less suggestive.)

I also hope you'll enjoy the Blu-Ray release of the 1986 My Little Pony film being packaged as part of a double feature with the 2017 film.

Mr. Moochick has something of the absent-minded professor about him.


And Angel Bunny owes something to Habbit.

Fun fact: In most of the British Commonwealth, Habbit's gesture would mean "You're out!"

Oh, that's what you meant. Sorry that interrogation symbol confused me, I'm not a native speaker of English.

I another subject, I forgot to specify which thread rule prevents me from posting my last G1 fan art: Is rated explicit.

Let's just say I got a little carried away in my interpretation of Bouquet's character description card.

Oooooh, about getting carried away with the character card?

Uhm, yes. I don't know the correct term for the text in the back of the package, so I called it that.

Ie. I was talking of my interpretation of this text:
One windy day, the wind blew Bouquet's new hat right off her head. Just as she caught the colorful hat, the wind pulled it higher — carrying Bouquet into the air! The surprised pony flew into the bright blue sky. She nibbled marshmallow clouds as she sailed past them. A little robin flew beside her, chirping merrily with her new flying friend. After the wind gently placed Bouquet on the ground, she offered her hat to the other ponies. "Anyone for a ride?" she asked with a smile.
