Unlike with Alexandra Carter (Twist) I didn’t see any info directly, but supposedly Brynna Drummond moved away to attend college. Apparently, her father, Brian (and yes, indeed, that Brian Drummond, perhaps unsurprisingly) revealed this somewhere (but I was never able to track down where that statement was made)
Also, those movie character voices were pretty clearly to help in marketing the movie (I mean, I’ve always maintained that the reason there were so many new characters introduced in the movie was a mandate passed down from Hasbro corporate to make spots that they could then fill with recognizable Hollywood talent), so it makes sense that they wouldn’t be used after that.
Hell, I think if they thought they could have gotten away with it, they would have recast the Mane Six with Hollywood voices for the movie instead.

I suppose it helped me that I didn’t watch the movie until after the first four TYT episodes had come out, and then I didn’t watch anything besides those things until a few weeks before Chapter 2 came out, when I got caught up by watching several TYT per night, haha

What an original name. That one aside, if they can recast the g5 characters, don’t see why the g4 movie wasn’t recasted as well. I mean Hasbro did it with Galvatron.

Who knows, maybe they didn’t want to piss off the Vancouver cast since they would be going back to them afterwards (unlike with ANG, where they had no intention of using the LA cast in anything afterwards)

@Latecomer
Yeah, and I know they did it with the witches in the G1 movie (no Cloris Leachman for the main series, for example)
Who knows, maybe with the various shuffling of writers on FiM that occurred (since IIRC the movie entered production after season 4, when Meghan McCarthy was the head writer - which also explains why, say, Starlight Glimmer only had a brief non-speaking cameo towards the beginning) they couldn’t come up with a storyline that would justify the work of trying to cast replacement voices (or of having the animation team come up with Flash rigs - at least until their background cameos in s9 - since ofc the movie was animated in ToonBoom Harmony)

I do like starlight and trixie as a how their written as a duo. They work well off each other and i do ship them together, so happy for no second prances for that
That’s exactly why I like the episode, it birthed my favorite ship and created one of the best dynamics in the show

Your right its possible that she didn’t abandon him. At this point it could only be speculation. Ok so ill let you know how I came to the conclusion of thinking phyllis abandoned sprout. It’s because of how she left him in the movie at the end. When sprout asks mommy did i do a good job? and she says uh and runs away. Instead of being like no sprout what you did is wrong etc etc.
I can just imagine them being on two different ends of the dinner table and not talking to each other. She may not have ran away physically but she ran away mentally with confronting her responsibilities as a parent.
@AC97
Here’s the thing moonndancer also had abandonment issues and didn’t become a supervillain. Being sad about it for a while is one thing, but sunburst left town when she was like 4 or so. Do you know how many people have had friends leave in kindergarten. She had plenty of time to make new friends and its not as if sunburst was her only pillar in life or something. She has caring parents.
And the more we learn about her past the worst is got instead of trying to make new friends she just became a emo teenager all because one friend left at pre-school.

No sane pony person would respond to the level that starlight did, its hard to believe that she didn’t already have mental problems needed to be worked out since birth. Actually you know what, they should have went with that for what people claim is the case for cozy glow for starlight.

Continuing to poke at Starlight’s way of dealing with abandonment issue and compare her to other characters is the same as me talking about everything wrong Discord did over and over again. It’s just repeating the same thing and becomes annoying. We’ve said the same things so many times there is nothing nuanced anymore. We really need to start looking at characters differently like how everyone kept telling me to.
And of course Starlight has mental problems. It’s kind of obvious.

This started from overall just a discussion on redemptions and my statements aren’t just starlight sucks. I’m not hating or upset really or anything. Just having a discussion and coming up with counterarguments to points that I think contradict in story.
However I even brought up earlier how I can see why people feel certain things about discord and how I can understand certain things you feel for that as I’m trying to be objective. I even brought up what I do LIKE about reformed Starlight and that’s startrix as a duo.
(Anyone who needs proof can look at my latest forum posts on my profile page or all my favored startrix art). I brought up other characters partly to show how they did certain things better and/or how certain things fall flat to prove a point.
But I do agree, I think we covered all we can with starlight. Also It was interesting to see discussion on sprout, as I feel his nuance is underrated.
This was a interesting convo on the perspective of redemption overall everyone

Well, this started when I said people didn’t hate redemption in general. They were just biased toward Starlight, and I still stand by that.
The majority of the fandom still has problem with Starlight Glimmer. There is a major bias against her, and you can’t change my mind.

Starlight Glimmer is awesome. My favorite MLP character outside of the Mane Six.

Here’s the thing moonndancer also had abandonment issues and didn’t become a supervillain.
Not everyone deals with similar things in the same way. That’s kind of the point, that she’s a sort of mirror for Moondancer, dealing with abandonment in a less-than-constructive way, if to a greater extreme.
She had plenty of time to make new friends and its not as if sunburst was her only pillar in life or something. She has caring parents.
Okay. Exactly how much insight do we get into her personal life at the time after? Was it definitively, for sure, the only factor there ever was, or was it the point from which she started spiraling?
And it’s funny you say “parents,” because where is her mother? That’s someone who is neither seen nor mentioned, at any point.
@WaynePonePone
Yeah, that was legitimately a moment that was along the lines of a realistic anxiety attack.
Another instance would be say, No Second Prances, where she shows signs of paranoia.
Starlight Glimmer: [groan] What is going on? This is Ponyville! If I can’t make a friend here, there’s gotta be something wrong with me! [sighs] Okay, calm down. Nobody makes friends with a total stresscase.
[more ponies chattering]
Starlight Glimmer: [to herself] Stop stressing… Stop stressing!
.
Starlight Glimmer: I’m not from here either. I’ve been trying to make friends, but it’s not easy. They’re not saying it, but I think everypony knows about my past. I may have been a tiny bit… completely and utterly evil?
@WaynePonePone
I think it’s more of a (particularly) vocal minority than anything, but eh, it doesn’t really matter.
@Spidey10
She wouldn’t be one of my top favorite ponies, if she wasn’t at least a little unstable, lol.

I’m glad there’s more appreciation for the other gens these days than in the early years of G4. There was a point where you basically couldn’t say anything nice about G1-G3, despite most not having watched them.

@AC97
Seriously, there needs to be more different angle looks on her more than “She reacts to thinks more negatively so it’s bad” and “She has it so good. How dare she do all these things.” even though nothing about her is proven other than one friend leaving her. Maybe it’s not the majority, but the bias is scarily strong nothing can break her out of this loop. Reminds of a time I remember discussing about how Starlight might be a latchkey kid and then a certain someone had to come out to say magic power suddenly stops having influence on one’s psyche. It’s like people will find every way to make her look bad, not matter how twisted or ridiculous.
@TheQuietMan
Are people canceling fictional characters now?
Who am I kidding they cancelled Pepe le Pew.

@Megalobronia
I might watch through G1, considering I believe it’s mostly available on Tubi (and perhaps other free streamers?) I’ve watched a few episodes, but nothing too much. I did watch a couple episodes of MLP Tales, and I thought it was dumb but also very entertaining, so there’s that.
Not too big a fan of the art styles for G3 and 3.5, but I have watched A Very Minty Christmas (or whatever) before, and I thought it was okay.
@Background Pony #A27F
Though it’s also important to distinguish between cancel culture and consequence culture (I find that the latter is often mislabeled as the former)
